Sometimes, when I’m not blogging often, I think about why I started this blog in the first place. It was to create a place where I could write, and write just for me. You can read more about that, if you’re so inclined.
While the reason I started this blog was to write more hasn’t changed, it has evolved into reasons. Tonight, I’ll see some of my “blogging friends” and they’re another one of the reasons I keep blogging—the community, as in anything, keeps me going. One of those bloggers is Alex, who was the inspiration for this post, actually. (Thanks, girl. See ya soon!) Like Alex, I too like to write to commemorate events, remember trips and document life.
Also, I’ve figured out, and maybe this is what that mentor was trying to get at all along, that when I’m personally creatively satisfied, it’s easier to be creative at work. I’m fortunate that I have many creative outlets, but when trying to write professionally, the words always flow more easily when I’ve gotten my own words out of the way.
Lastly, I blog for you guys, my readers. Whether that’s one or 1,000. I blog to keep in touch, to share what’s new in my life with friends and family across the country/world. So, if I haven’t mentioned it recently, thanks for reading. Thanks for keeping me going.
PS. I found that great quote, but I had to look up the author too. Looks like I might add Anais Nin to my reading list.
