Daria Giron posed a great question for my August series (or should I say OUR August series). She wanted to know my take on why we blog.
I’ve been thinking about this question for the whole month. And you know what? I still don’t have a great answer. I can tell you some of the reasons that I blog, but it would not be a comprehensive list. So I’ll tell you some of those things, but then you fill in the blank too.
I blog because…
I love to write
I love conversing with great people like you
It affords me the opportunity to deepen relationships with people I’ve met on other social platforms – no character limit, deeper conversations…it’s good stuff!
It allows me to chart how I grow and change as a thinker and as a writer
It allows me to weigh my thoughts against those of others
And hey, in this crazy world, let’s face it, it’s nice to be able to talk without noise, without interruption, in a free-flowing place that is your own, but where people can visit and talk to you all of the time. Where else can you *really* do that?
You blog because…
That’s just one person’s answer – namely mine. But I think to truly answer Daria’s question, you need to weigh in. Why do you, yes you, like to blog? Do you like to blog? Do you feel it’s an obligation or is it something fun you do? If you don’t blog, why don’t you?
Write this post with me, won’t you?
