why do you blog…?

I have been thinking a lot about my blog lately. This blog.

I took a writing workshop a few months ago and I seriously enjoyed it but even though writing isn’t my strong point (by a long way) it is not the main reason that I suck at blogging. I believe that I suck mostly due to having a very introverted and shy personality. I started blogging a long time ago now.

This wasn’t the blog I began with I actually began with a blog about illustration. (long story I won’t bore you) When I started this blog I didn’t start it to document my family’s everyday, I didn’t start it in order to keep my family and friends updated on what I was doing. Honestly when I started it I really couldn’t see any point for anyone to look at it other than myself. I didn’t have a blogging purpose.

Not much has changed I am ashamed to say lol but I don’t feel as bad about blogging just for me anymore! I think I really do need to find a purpose for my blog and a reason or a way to help or inspire others but for now I will just continue blogging until I figure out.

The reason I have written all of this though is to ask YOU, why do you blog? What do you like to use your blog for? Do you know your audience? Do you follow other peoples blogs? What is it that you look for in someone else’s blog? I basically want to pick your brains, if you will let me. 🙂

  • I love this post. I blog because I love teaching. I missed teaching when I became a SAHM and when I become obsessed with photography I realized people wanted to learn from me. Scary thing since I look at some of the photos from my first posts (yikes!). That is still the ultimate reason I blog but I also blog to help fund my photography habit and my long term goal is to blog so I can stay home for ever but still contribute financially to the family. I hope you find the reason you blog 🙂 Knowing that will help you keep going when you lose your motivation 🙂ReplyCancel
