I sincerely hope that I’m blogging ten years from now. I love everything about it. I’m hooked in it completely.
Blogging is the one thing I look forward to doing in my day. I look forward to reading my favorite bloggers posts for the day-week (depending on the last time I got to visit them.) I can’t wait to interact with the other bloggers on Facebook and Twitter. I feel like I’m at home when I’m chatting with them or sharing their content.
I can’t wait to find out what I’m going to be reviewing in any given month or time frame. I’ve grown as a blogger that I can finally plan out what types of posts and themes I’m going to promote on a given month. Plus I also try to find products that go along with those themes and plans. I feel utterly blessed to have companies that actually want to work with me too.
Blogging keeps me sane. Without it as a part of my life now, I wonder what life would be like. I think it’d be quite empty like it was when I had to give up riding horses. (I still am counting down the day until I can have a horse again.)
Honestly and truly, there are days when I have just as much fun promoting other bloggers and visiting them and doing the behind the scenes actions for them that I let my blog just sit there happily. So, even if I was just working with other bloggers I do feel I’d be happy too, but it wouldn’t say it’d be the same.
As long as things continue to go the way they have been for the past three years, then I’d say it’s a safe bet that I’ll still be blogging ten years from now. Whether or not, I’ll be still talking about the same things that’s up for debate at this point.
Would you honestly want to continue to read my thoughts ten years from now?

I’d absolutely still read your blog 10 years from now! I hope I’m still blogging then, too. 🙂
Well, I look forward to us building a lasting friendship over the next ten years and beyond then.
Well I can honestly say, I’m not sure where I’ll be next week, never mind in 10 years 🙂 I probably won’t be blogging 10 years from now myself but then again, who knows?!
Life has a way of changing all the time doesn’t it? I never dreamed I’d be a professional blogger ten years ago.
I love blogging, too. I wonder if I’ll be blogging in 10 years, too. My oldest will be 19… EEK!
Wow. It is hard to imagine having a 19 year old child. I have my hands full with my 10 year old.
That’s a great question, with the way the market has become so over-segmented, things remain to be seen.
This is true. There are more and more bloggers who are entering this world hoping to turn this into a living too. So, the competition is getting stiffer too.
I love watching and reading bloggers that continue to write and evolve over the years. I have been blogging since 2005 and still read blogs that I read back then!
We do definitely evolve over the years as we learn to blog in a more professional manner.
I love blogging too and hope I’m here with you!
Sounds like we’re on a mission together then. 🙂
I just am not capable of thinking that far ahead…I’ll be in my 40’s, gah!!
So will I. It’s hard to believe I’ll be that old.
I have been blogging for 10 years, and it’s amazingly scary how time is flown by so quickly! I live day by day, so I try not to think too far ahead, especially since I’ll be close to my 40s when that time comes. Haha. 🙂
LOL. I will be in my forties then. Time seems to fly even faster with each passing day.
I probably would, I have a lot in common with you 🙂
Glad to know we have so much in common. 🙂 I am enjoying the comments back and forth.
I totally can relate with blogging becoming a part of your life. It’s almost inviting the world to have a look inside our everyday lives, and I have come to love it. I really hope to include my own children on my blog someday.
I love your description of what blogging is. My kids love being a part of our blogging journey.
I’m not sure. I’m a creature of change so I don’t know if I’ll be blogging in ten years. I may transition to writing just freelance.
Freelance tends to pay more from what I’ve heard. I just haven’t found out how to tap into the resource.
If you’re still going after another 10 years, it’d be joy to keep seeing what you’re up to!
Thank you TerriAnn for the kind words.
I love to hear how much you enjoy it! I think about the future of blogging a lot- I know that I’ll still be doing it even if it’s just for myself, but I sincerely hope the business aspect is still there 10 years from now since it’s my full-time job. I just worry about whether it’ll still be a “thing”!
I have to agree with you. I definitely hope the business aspect of it stays in tact too because it’s my job too. I’m hoping to bring in enough income one day that we don’t have to stress over the bills each payday.
I have no idea if I will be blogging in 10 years. While I do enjoy it at times my blog is a 2nd job for me and it often feels like one. I absolutely love the perks I get from it and the income has provided me means to purchase a new home, if I could give it up right now and still have the income I more than likely would do so, so I could concentrate on other things I would like to do. However at the same time it feels part of my identity.
I can see why you feel it’s a part of your identity because in many ways I feel like mine is a part of mine as well. I have only been doing it for three years now, and haven’t even dipped into everything I could/should be doing with it.
I am like you. If it continues like it has, I will definitely still be blogging in 10 years.
If you enjoy something never quit because when you enjoy something it shows because people can see you’re putting your heart into it!
Very true and wise words.
I would love to keep reading you. I say that as long as you still enjoy what you do, to keep doing it. 🙂
Definitely plan to continue doing it. If anything I want to dig my fingers and mind into it ever more with each passing day.
