Why do I blog....
One of the main reasons why I blog is so I can share my life with friends and family. Jon and I have several friends from childhood and college that are spread out all over the country. We also have family everywhere, even as far as China and Spain. If I can talk about our life with simple words and pictures it's a great way to keep family and friends up to date. That was the original source of my blog. But as I started to write, my simple words turned into paragraphs. Apparently I have more to say than I thought. So for right now, at this point in my life, this little blog is a journal of our life and daily adventures. Down the road it may take another path. I hope it does. I don't like to do the same thing for too long...
The other reason why I blog is because I simply love to write. Although this has turned into more of a journalistic form of writing, at least I am still writing. For those of you who don't know my Bachelor's Degree is in English with a minor in Creative Writing. You don't see it here too often, and it's something I'm going to include more, but I love writing poetry and have even been published (long long ago). I love how simple words can explain feelings, emotions and memories in a way you can’t imagine.
So there you have it. That's why I blog.
Now, you ask, why am I talking about this here and now? After all those long walks on the beach I started to really think why the heck I am blogging. I have SO much going on in my life that honestly, I don't really have extra time for more projects. And I didn't know if I really fit into this blogging community. Well, as least I think it's a community. I have found that there are people out there who are not so welcoming. There are people who leave rude comments that I just don't understand. There are people out there who are just downright mean and intimidating on twitter. And there are also bloggers out there who have their little blogging circles and sometimes I wonder why I am following these people and what am I getting into. I am far too old for this and don't have time to worry about blogs, twitter and any other social network. What it comes down to is this: I love to write, I love to create and I love to share. There you have it....in the simplest words...why I blog.
What do you blog about? What inspires you? What is your motivation? I would love to know. And I promise, I REALLY will read your comment and check it out. You just may not get a reply for awhile ♥
Next week I'll return with my Eco Friendly Friday posts!
