Why Do I Blog?
So someone asked me recently why I blog. It’s a good question. It did make me think a lot about the concept. There are many reasons. First, I have a head full of thoughts. Blogging is a way to just take the junk floating in my head and get it out. Sometimes it is random chaos and other times it is somewhat ordered chaos. Either way I still consider it chaos. And it is mine and I love it. And I hate it at times as well. This is me. I have a love/hate relationship with my thoughts.
Second, I feel that blogging helps develop my writing. I did not study writing in college but I do feel like I am not a shabby writer. I feel like I definitely have a lot to learn. As you write you learn how to turn a phrase or sometimes come up with a better cliché. Writing in a blog provides practice for something I love. And I don’t know why tapping out letters makes me happy, but it does. Maybe I like to be humorous at times and it is very difficult to do in written form? And it is so gratifying when you actually pull it off! Even if you don’t actually LOL but you do slightly lift the corner of your mouth. That is gratification.
Third, I like to just tell the crazy antics of my life. Sometimes the stupidest and craziest things happen and I am wondering if the rest of the world has ever had these stupid things happen. Or I just have something on my mind and just need it off my mind. Blogging is much cheaper than therapy, as I have stated before. I like to let people know about this craziness and sometimes also let them see the softer side of me, too. I have a lot of walls built up. Blogging allows me to let the walls down from time to time when I feel safe.
So why do I blog? Many reasons that create some order for me. Anyone else? Why do you blog? I may have questions for you! I love to learn!!!!
