WorksForMom tagged me to answer the question: "Why do you blog?" I touched on this subject in this post here last month, but I will give a bit of a re-cap.
The first reason why I blog is that it is a way of expressing myself. It's a way for me to share my joys, struggles, challenges, funny things my kids do/say and it's a way for me to be creative. It's also my way of working through things or holding myself accountable for something.
I also blog to stay in touch with family and friends. It's hard to keep in touch with everybody, so this is a way that I can keep people informed on my life's happenings all at once. It's like a Christmas Family Newsletter, just one that is updated on an almost daily basis rather than once a year.
And finally, it is for making new friends. It is for finding people who are going through some of the same things that I am going through. It is for finding comfort, encouragement and support.
I don't know if anybody else ever feels this way, but I often find myself feeling very content with the amount of friends I have. I actually even sometimes feel overwhelmed because it's hard to get together and spend enough quality time with all of my friends. So I tend to think that I don't need anybody else...my life is full enough. And then suddenly God will send somebody new into my life and once that new friendship is made, I can't imagine my life without them. I have made such friends through blogging. Friends who seem to have been sent to me by God for a specific reason; to help me through something in my life.
So those are the reasons why I blog. I know there are some people out there (even some faithful non-blogger readers of mine) who don't really 'get it', and that's okay. But I 'get it' and I love it!
