Every now and then I think about why I spend the time sharing my ideas and often my innermost thoughts on a blog. After all, it would be just as easy for me to write a journal and keep it to myself. I'm not particularly interested in "building a brand" out here. I'm also not really trying to sell anything.
In the end, I'm not really sure, but I love doing it. I love to hear that my Aunt Marie in Hayward likes to read what I write (yes I know you are reading this Marie bless your heat!). I love that I receive emails or comments from people when I touch them, it's rewarding.
It's rewarding to me because I'm not intentionally trying to do it. I'm simply writing whatever is of interest or important to me at that time. I think what I've found most powerful about these realities is I don't have to worry about what you might think because I never really worried about it from the beginning. I've put up some pretty deep, personal stuff about myself and have even been able to see myself evolve and grow through what I write.
And, frankly, at many times it's much easier than keeping a journal. One thing's for sure, I can't leave my blog at a Starbucks or on a plane, that's nice.
Perhaps part of the reason I blog is to show you that anyone can. Let's face it since I'm not brand building, selling anything or issue driven, the question remains what do I bring to the blogosphere.
And you have one of those too that is totally unique. I'd love to see you share it online and find out for yourself why you blog.
Thank goodness I decided not to live life explaining why I don't when I never had that feels like living in fear.
And that's something I prefer to avoid thank you very much!
