Here we are, 13 weeks into a new year and I’ve got over 100 people following this blog!
I love when my friends comment and I love reading their posts. I’ve gone on emotional journeys, cheered weigh loss and steps walked, sat in amazement over a renovated living room, viewed babies, cathedrals, puppies and desserts. I’ve read about loss and recovery, despair and hope. I’ve listened to Snow Patrol, seen spring flowers and mountain vistas.
I started blogging as a way to put words into a post. It was hard for me to define my ‘niche’. I don’t sew, quilt, paint or design. I don’t lift, run, ride or twirl. And sadly, I don’t strum, fiddle, rock or roll.
I volunteer, play with my grandson, read books, take photos, walk, hike and engage with a wide range of family and friends. I learn, teach, listen and seek out new information through a variety of venues.
I love writing and this blog is a wonderful platform for me. Perhaps my NICHE is being me. Can that be a niche?
I didn’t envision my blog posts to be a ‘no holds barred’ type of place but instead a place where I am sharing bits and pieces of my world, my past and hopes for the future. A place where my humor is able to shine and when I feel down to be able to write freely about that as well. I’ve made friends here and it’s a fun place to be.
Why bother to blog? It feeds my soul, it helps me feel connected, I learn so much, I grow and I enjoy the process.
So tell me, what is it about blogging that you like so much? Why do you do it?
