This is a question I have found myself asking now for quite some time. Why do I blog? Why do you blog? Why does anyone blog? I'm not really sure yet why I do. I hope if you are reading this and you have a blog that you know why you blog.
Is it because I want people to know me and see how I live? No, I don't think so. If you haven't noticed I haven't even posted a photo of myself on this here blog. (ahem Bevy, I see you noticed.) Anyway, I am a very private sort of person. It's not that I want to keep secrets from people, more that I don't think people really care what is going on in my life or others for that matter. I don't even have a facebook account. Do people really care what others are doing every moment of the day? Or, is it just plain nosiness? I don't know, just sending out the question.
Do I blog because I have something really important to say that everyone needs to hear? No, that can't be it either, because I really don't have much that is worthy of hearing. I really am just learning life as I go. You would think at the age of ....nevermind let's just say at my age I should have a lot more figured out by now.
I once saw on another persons blog something about how she was trying to pick up traffic on her blog. I found myself asking why? I'm not really sure I want to "grow" my blog, if you know what I mean. Because with a bigger audience becomes more pressure right? And as a working mother, wife, sister, daughter and on the list goes, I certainly don't need any added pressure. So, if that is the case than why blog?
I guess the real reason I started this blog was for my boys. I am not a very talkative person...usually. What I mean by that is, I don't tend to share my feelings outwardly. I am not very affectionate either. Don't tend to give a lot of hugs and kisses. Wow, I just aired a lot of my dirty laundry on the world-wide-web. Oh wait, nobody reads my blog anyway. Shew!! I'm good. : ]
Anyway, back to the topic of discussion here. I guess my hope is that someday my boys will want to read this blog and in doing so will see inside of my heart those things I was never able/willing to share. Good and bad. And know how I felt and what I was thinking.
So, while my blog may grow I will still be here spilling out my thoughts. And while no one cares, I'll still do it. For them. After all, they are pretty much the reason I do everything I do.
So, tell me why you blog.
