When I started blogging, I never ever imagined having followers or being as invested in it as I now am. Starting out as a place to vent and share everything that was going through my head during a very confusing few months. I was blogging because I was beginning to figure out who I was and because I had no friends. At this point, I was blogging because I enjoyed it. It’s a habit that I really enjoy indulging. If I’m not posting, I’m on Twitter publicising posts or checking on my stats for the day. At this point I’d like to note that I read somewhere that you should only check stats once a week otherwise you’ll be disheartened and lose interest. I blog because someone somewhere might be helped by my blog. It might inspire them, make them smile, provide a resource they’ve been looking for, or help them feel less alone. I blog because blogging is an accessible medium that allows me to publish whenever and whatever I want, and readers from all over the world can find it and read it for free.I blog because of the magical connections that can happen through blogging. Blogging has helped me form virtual and in-person relationships, both personal and professional, sometimes even across continents.
Now tell me what are your reasons for Blogging? Let us all share and discuss.
I write a lot, which keeps me off the streets and out of trouble. There is always something to write about, always a new story to craft. Not writing, for me, is like trying to hold back a sneeze. Learning to write was the most powerful influence in my life. I can still remember the awe I felt when I realized I could put real words onto paper and tell out a story. From that first ‘a-ha’ moment I knew I wanted to write.
