Jen at Crazy for Books restarted her weekly Book Blogger Hop to help book bloggers connect with one another, but then couldn't continue, so she handed the hosting responsibilities off to Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer. The only requirements to participate in the Hop are to write and link a post answering the weekly question and then visit other blogs that are also participating to see if you like their blog and would like to follow them.
This week Billy asks: Where do you find motivation and inspiration for your blog?
I suppose I get inspiration from the books, movies, television shows, conventions, and all of the other things that I write about. I get inspiration from the authors I meet and other fans I am friends with. But inspiration without motivation is almost meaningless. I am inspired to do all kinds of things, many of which I have not yet done, and may or may not ever do due to time constraints or just because some other idea caught my imagination between the inspiration and the execution.
I get motivation from the blog itself - there is something very motivating about looking back over years of work and seeing a concrete manifestation of that work. Every week, I write and post something that never existed before, and there is a particular kind of satisfaction that comes from that process that keeps me motivated to continue to do it time and again.
