I have been thinking over the last 24 hours, why do people blog?
For me, it started as a way to get my thoughts and feelings across at a very transitional time in my life. I had lost the man I thought I would marry, I moved home with my father and I was turning 30. All these things lead me to blogging.
I didn’t know who would actually read my blog? Friends – some. Family – probably not for the most part. Strangers – possibly. I don’t know who I started my blog for. Me mostly. My beautiful aunt reads my blog and posts regularly, I have a couple of friends that read it through my Facebook page, but I would guess that most people who read it are strangers. I would care to guess also that some people who read my blog are people who don’t like me or respect me yet they read my blog – for the wrong reasons, so they can find out what I am up to, whats going on in my life, who I am dating and why I am dating them etc etc. I thought about it and really – I am okay with this.
I am okay with blogging for people who don’t like me, maybe they will continue to hate me, maybe – just maybe, they will realize that I am not a bad person, that I am not a bitch. I have done and said bad things I am sure – but who doesn’t? No one I know is a saint and most people deserve forgiveness and understanding, not hatred and ill-will.
For those of you who actually take time to read my blog, thank you, I appreciate you taking YOUR time – which I recognize as precious – to read something I happen to write.
I am starting a new segment for 2012 – a question every time I blog. I would love to get to know those who read my blog. So please respond!!
My question for today: Do you blog (if so please add your blog link here too), why do you blog and if you don’t what makes you choose a blog to follow!
My wish for you all – health and peace in 2012
