For me, blogging is great for multiple reasons. When I first started to blog I wanted to post the thoughts and opinions I had on certain subjects, the opinions I felt strongest about that were pretty out of place in a Facebook status. I wanted to find a platform that people could reach out to and read if they wanted to without being too intrusive and in-your-face. This was the place for that.
I still do this, but have since blended this with my travel updates so people can see where I am at any time. I love photography, travel and gaining new experiences, so when I can mix all the above together I will. It also works well for me as I want people to understand that a lack of religion and faith in an afterlife does not have to result in a complete lack of motivation in this life. Quite the contrary.
I often have strong feelings on certain opinions, things that I love and hate and the way I wish things were. Blogging helps me to put these thoughts into words and attract people with a similar mindset and gratefully, those that disagree but are willing to listen to my side. It also helps me to understand the minds of other bloggers and learn to be more tolerant. I have definitely improved on this over the years.
It is a diary that I can look back on and my photos are not going to waste. With every blog post I look back on I gain inspiration for a new post and often bring back memories that had diminished over time. It is a diary I can access 24/7 through my laptop or phone on the go and I am so pleased we live in a time that makes this possible.
The great thing about this community is that everyone blogs for different reasons. Some for therapy or to give advice, some to display their travel and photography experiences. But why do you blog? What makes blogging fun for you and what is your long term goal? Whether it is for similar reasons to mine or completely different ones, I look forward to reading about it.
Happy Wednesday y’all.
