Why do I blog
“Why do I blog?”
This is a question that I’ve been thinking about when I read how blogging can help you live meaningfully.
When I started this blog, I honestly don’t have concrete reasons or goals in mind. All I know is that I enjoy writing. A few days of pondering, I finally realized why I blog:
1.To share stories
When I started being a mother, I found it helpful to read other moms’ stories. It made me feel that my struggles are normal, and it gave me tips on how to handle things.
I’m still a long way from being an expert on some topics, but I know I know well on some. Which is why, I try to share my experiences and lessons learned. It’s not much, but it’s a start.
Sometimes, I just want a space to collect my adventures. I look forward to looking back one day and see how far I’ve come.
3.To feel connected
I am an introvert so I find it hard to start conversations. However, blogging gave me a safe space to converse with others. The more I write, the more I become confident.
Receiving comments on posts is my most favorite thing. It gives me the sense that what I’m writing makes sense; that people pay attention to my comments, and that I matter.
Sometimes, you just need a space to release your thoughts. When I need more space than what Facebook provides, I turn to blogging. Halfway through the post, I see a different perspective, and I gain a better understanding of the issue.
5.To know more about myself
They say that why people see is just the tip of the iceberg. When I write, my heart and soul escapes through my fingers. And with that, I learn something about myself a little bit more.
These are the reasons that I can think of. As I go on through building my blog, I know that I would realize more reasons why I want to continue.
So, how can blogging help me live meaningfully? With the reasons I mentioned, I know that blogging can help me be a better person. I started this year with lots of hopes for myself, including being stronger, braver, and more independent. Also, being a little less shy.
With a better understanding of myself and the support of others that comes with blogging, I know that I can achieve these goals. And I hope that you’ll be with me in this journey.
