Remembering Why I Blog

I'm rereading some of my favorite parts of Seth Godin's Linchpin today. This particular quote reminded me of why I wanted to do this blog in the first place.

I don’t write my blog to get anything from you in exchange. I write it because giving my small gift to the community in the form of writing makes me feel good. I enjoy it that you enjoy it. When that gift comes back to me, one day, in an unexpected way, I enjoy the work I did twice as much.

Godin, Seth (2010). Linchpin: Are You Indispensable? (Kindle Locations 2880-2882). Portfolio. Kindle Edition.

If you haven't read this book, get it now! If I was still managing a team it'd be mandatory reading for everyone. (Although that doesn't sound particularly gift-like!)

I just wanted to say thank you for sharing this quote. I am new to blogs and will definitely look for Seth's book.
