I’ve blogged before and it never amounted much. I always quit because I thought who cares? Part of me still believes this to be true today, right now. Who cares what I say? Maybe this isn’t why I blog? I’m not sure why I want to blog or where this will go or what will become of it. I have no specific reasons. Maybe all this is just the words I’m leaving behind.
After Googling it I was able to mine 7 ideas that appeal to me about blogging.
1. Learning new things.
I’m not sure what I want to learn. This could be something interesting to delve into deeper and do a brainstorming session.
2. I want to get myself “out there” more.
I’m hoping this will help me to not be such an introvert as I am now. Although if I’m honest maybe deep down I like being an introvert. That’s an odd truth to admit. I might feel safe all wrapped in.
3. I like to write.
“Kind-uh” I’ve written some short fictional stories in the past, but I seem to be in constant fiction story writer’s block. I do find I like to write bits of “nothings” or free writing or just ramble with words. I wrote a 100,000-word collection of nothing but free-writing here: Free-Writing
5. Maybe I can help others.
As much as I would like to I’m not sure how. It would be great though if I could.
6. I hope it will make me more creative and observational.
Who knows, maybe even more focused? That would be great. What scares me is the day I wake up and have no idea what to write about. I hope that day I’ll rise to the occasion instead of getting defeated, but then who am I kidding. I have to be honest with myself.
7. The words I will leave behind one day.
This reason is reason alone. I like this idea.
