I wrote a post on the question “What I do what I do?“. I received some feedback that I thought was very good, “that is a big topic!”. I agree and thought let’s take this topic and think about blogging.

So, I would like to issue a challenge to my fellow bloggers. Would you write a post on the topic “Blogging – Why I Do What I Do”.

I sometimes think about why I blog. What is the purpose of me maintaining a blog? Why should I continue? Is there any value to me blogging?

I blog first and foremost because I enjoy it. I enjoy writing, I am NOT a professional writer but I enjoy writing my thoughts and putting them on a blog. It feels good to get my thoughts out and publishing them. It helps me work on my writing and it also helps me think more about what I am writing about. I don’t have many readers to my blog and that is okay.  I blog for myself. If others find what I write useful, that is wonderful.

I13241650194_0e58264d92_o love to involve my family into my blogging. Sometimes (well, most of the time) they don’t want to. But, we try to do a lot of it together. It may just be pictures or it may be ideas they spark in me. Having my family involved is very important. I feel it is good when my daughters try to share (with our help), it gives them good practice writing and putting their thoughts together.

I do find that blogging creates a community of like minded people. Blogging allows me to connect with people who like to blog or have the same interests. I have created a blog on my community which was very helpful during it’s time. I maintain this blog for myself. I write about various topics depending on what I am feeling and what I would like to share. Sitting down and putting thoughts on the screen and reading them helps me.

I would like to see if you, my fellow bloggers or readers would like to share “Blogging – Why I Do What I do”. Write a post on this topic. I would love to read why you blog. Add your link to the form below and please share with the tag #WhyIDoWhatIDo.
