1) I love blogging because it gives me a creative outlet to explore my writing.
I love writing. Writing for me is a way to escape; a way to get out of my head; a chance to explore my creativity. Having a blog is fantastic because it means I can write when I want and what I want. It allows me to explore different writing styles and explore and express my thoughts on things I’m really interested in. My blog has definitely inspired me to be more creative and develop my writing skills. And one of the greatest things is that I can be gone for days, weeks or even months, but when I’m ready it’s there waiting!
2) I love blogging because it opens me up to a world of amazing people with similar interests from all over the world.
My blog has opened up my world to really interesting and inspiring people. I’ve been able to connect with and share ideas and experiences with so many wonderful people. It is a wonderful gift.
3) I love blogging because it can help others.
I write about what I love and sometimes my posts might provide people with a little bit more information about something. Since I started my blog over 5 years ago, I’ve received many emails from people who are seeking information on their family lines that were lost generations ago when their distant relatives immigrated to different parts of the world.
One of these e-mails sparked a series of events that reunited a family “lost” after part of the family immigrated to America in the early 1900s. When I get updates on this family, I’m reminded how something that may seem so small and insignificant can become something so incredibly profound. It is moments like this that make me so proud to have this blog.
4) I love blogging because it has opened me up to look at the world differently.
“Don’t look at the world with your hands in your pockets. To write about it you have to reach out and touch it.” – Mark Twain
Since starting my blog, I’ve started looking at the world differently. Something that might have gone unnoticed years ago may spark an idea for a blog post. I tend to admire and reflect on the delicate details of daily life that we tend to ignore because they are mundane or routine. There is beauty and inspiration in everything.
5) I love blogging because it teaches me new things.
I’m a bit of a perfectionist. I always try to make sure that I do things as complete as I possibly can. Sometimes as I’m writing a blog I realize that I could expand or give more information on certain topics and so I ask around, research and learn everything I can so that I can include it in my blog post. This has allowed me to learn new things and expand on the knowledge that I already have. I think it’s so important to never stop learning about the world around this.
