WHY I BLOG. It’s hard to say why I blog. And terribly easy at the same time. Let’s start with some reasons that are at the top of my mind right now:
1// I blog because I love writing.
2// I blog because I love seeing my work published anywhere and everywhere.
3// I blog because it gives me an opportunity to write. And write.
4// I feel a sense of accomplishment when I blog.
5// I blog to practice and sharpen my photography skills (over at Surely Simple)
6// Other bloggers who have been perfecting their art for years now inspire and motivate me to blog.
7// I blog because it’s just the most wonderful feeling. Even now as I’m writing this, the music’s playing, and the tapping of my fingers on the keyboard adds to it; just the best time.
8// I blog because it gives me direction. I love creativity and expressing my self anyway I want to; whether it be in words, illustration or photography is amazing. Really it is.
9// I blog because I’m the boss of my own life. Or aiming to be anyway. This little blog in the vast land of the internet is my space to say whatever I want. And I love that.
10// I blog because I interact with so many people. Indirectly or directly. Like you, for instance. Thank you for reading this.
Well, here are some reasons why I blog. I’d write a longer post (which is what this ‘Essay’ series is all about, but now I’ve got a little creative project to dream up for Surely Simple. Blogging is hard work, you know! Especially right at the beginning. I know. Because I’m standing right there.)
I’d love to know why you like to blog. Or would like to start to blog. Or just read blogs. Anything related to blogs, really. Tell me in the comments below!
