Today is the final day of the SITS Back to Blogging event.
Today's challenge was to write about why we blog.
This should be an easy topic, right?!
Why do I blog??
As I thought about this today, I thought about how I really started this blog when I was living in NY. I was away from family and friends, and I thought blogging would be a good way to share my thoughts and stories with those I didn't get to see very often.
As I've continued to pursue this blogging venture, I've discovered how much I like to be open and share my thoughts. Blogging allows me to escape the bounds of my debilitating introversion. In the blogosphere, I can be an extrovert. Well, to an extent, of course.
I think this is the reason why I continue blogging. I love sharing with the world my thoughts and stories!
Another main reason I blog is for validation. Not sure this exactly a noble reason to blog, but honesty is important, right?! So, I admit, I feel much better about blogging when I receive feedback or gain new followers. There is no better blogging feeling than when I receive an email notification that I've received a comment.
Comment love is definitely a cherry on top of my blogging journey!
So...bring 'em on.
