Why do you Blog?

prissyWhy do you blog? I am asked.

Thanks for asking. I blog for many reasons, and possibly for reasons I don’t even know or understand. Confusing, yes but I think it is true.

I like to try to do what I have not done before.  I am not a professional writer, I never studied philosophy, and I am a  pretty regular person. But like most regular people, like you I’ll bet, there are things that make you and I different, and my attempts to write is one of mine.

One reason is that I’m a reader, I read a lot and so of course I sometimes wonder if I can write, after all I’ve got decades of reading experience.

Another reason is that I like to meet new people, make new contacts, and share my life and my experience. I think we all have something to share. So I share, and I hope I have some nuggets that are interesting for you to turn over in your mind. I really hope you will comment and let me know what you liked or didn’t.

I write to share my life, to be a part of others lives, and to live my life as full as I can.

Lastly, for perhaps firstly –  don’t we all desire to touch a bigger audience,  I think we all do. I think we all walk our paths in life and whether our path is smooth, or not, whether we toil uphill or saunter along – that is the path fate has given us, and it is life to live facing forward doing the best we can, and hopefully helping, and having fun with others along the way.

That’s my writing, hoping to connect with readers in digital ink.

that's the right way

that’s the right way

Why do I blog? I ask you, why not?

Dive in, the water’s fine – and thanks for reading.
