Top Ten Reasons Why I blog

I took a short break from blogging.  Life got busy & hectic, and to be honest blogging simply took a backseat to other priorities.  I am happy to report that I am now feeling ready to jump back in and share my great pearls of wisdom with the world. 

I am not narcissistic enough to believe that my thoughts, no matter how well crafted I think they might be, will have a lasting and meaningful impact upon the world.  There are literally millions of folks blogging their thoughts on the Internet for all to see and adding my voice to the cacophony will not make a substantial difference, but it does make a difference to me. 

There are many reasons why I blog:
·      Blogging gives me a chance to share my views. 
·      Blogging gives me an opportunity to flex my writing muscles, in preparation for those great novels I WILL finish someday.
·      Blogging has enabled me to make some wonderful online friendships
·      Blogging keeps me sane in a crazy and turbulent world.
·      Blogging helps me to focus on my priorities in life.
·      Blogging provides a great excuse to avoid housework 
·      Blogging serves as my personal journal.
·      Blogging helps me to process my feelings; through blogging I can express my frustrations in a healthy way. 
·      Blogging is actually fun – I enjoy the challenge.
·      Blogging lets me leave a small piece of myself out in the universe for all eternity.

Thanks for coming on this blogging journey with me. 


  1. These are great reasons and I totally agree! Glad you re back. I enjoy your pearls of wisdom.

  2. I started my blog to generate more visits to my company. I blog now because I love it. I can't really couch it as a business requirement! I love to read other's thoughts too and appreciate the on line friendships too.

    1. I love how everyone has a unique story for why they started their blog, yet so many of us find similar benefits. Thanks for visiting my blog!

  3. I started blogging to exercise my writing muscle and to help deal with the confusion of adult children leaving, my mother having dementia and my husband fighting a chronic illness. It's a busy highway, a busy life and writing helped me and others sort it all out.

    1. Wow - you certainly had a lot to deal with, I am such a big fan of using writing to help deal with any/all emotional issues of life. It can be so therapeutic. Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  4. Well said!
    My blog started as a writing exercise as well because I was working towards the 10K hours to become an "expert.". Now I'm in the process of rebranding to be more of a mindful midlife blogger. I have been stuck for a few months though and am definitely going crazy so commenting is my new "writing."
