Why I Blog
Writer's blogs, Mommy blogs, political blogs, and everything in between. Blogs that defy definition or fail to sit comfortably in their niche. Raging crazy blogs and put me to sleep blogs. Blogdom is indeed just another community of dissimilar souls all adding their unique spin on what is going on in the World.
I have long ago stopped worrying about what non-bloggers think about blogging. I have become used to the ribbing and being held up to ridicule by those who are too cool to blog. Everyone needs someone to look down on. For some I fill that need. I am glad to be of service as long as it doesn't cost me anything. Their derision comes free of charge, so I am happy to make their day.
Many bloggers will share almost anything about themselves. I know I have spilled things I would not bring up in the normal conversations that pass through my day. I have read personal things of others that make me uncomfortable yet help me in my search for my own center. By sharing our thoughts, no matter how mundane or trivial, we create for ourselves an outlet for the stressful garbage that clutters our lives. When I vent and rant I always feel better after. When I read of someone else having trouble, I know there are kindred spirits out there who suffer,laugh, and live Life much the same way I do. And that makes me a happier person.
That is why I blog. Simple as that.
