Proving that a fat chick can, and sometimes does, marry a really hot guy.
hmmm Someone encouraged me to start blogging to keep friends and family updated on my daughter. I also use it to vent about my husband. But it's not really me. I edit a lot of my thoughts and language because of the nature of my "audience". I'd love to cut loose and call someone a douchebag. Ahhhh, to dream. :)
I write because I have to. I started blogging because it was like a sissy test: putting my writing out in a public forum. (But no one read it, so it was actually really safe.)
Hrmm interesting question. I started writing my blog because it was therapeutic. It was a good place to get out all of the things that frustrated me about living here in Holland. Now it's that, and also that I just enjoy it. I also like when people read and comment haha I guess I'm a bit of an attention whore!I do find that I censor myself a lot more now than I used to though, and I hate it. In the past when I spoke about some things that bothered me here I rubbed some people up the wrong way (mainly, my father in law and his wife) and all hell broke loose over the silliest little things I said. Ugh. I write for myself but also for others, but I often wish I had done it all anonymously.
Good question. In my case, it's the whole chicken and the egg thing. Do I blog because I write? Or do I write because I blog?I believe in my case it's a little of both. Blogging gives me a forum for writing, and impetus to write. Also, I started blogging because I love to write. Also, I started my blog initially because I wanted to keep family and friends updated on our happenings. And it kind of went from there.
I blog because the world deserves to know my greatness.tee hee.Plus I just like to tick people off with all my honesty and admitting imperfection and what not. And it is wonderful free therapy.But mostly it is just because I am so darn awesome and it would be a shame to hide that away from the public who is clearly in need of a hero.
Because I tried not writing but I didn't feel like me anymore.
If I write it stops my brains from oozing out of my eyeballs, ears and nose. Because if I don't write my brain will surely explode from the pressure of all the stuff in it. I think way too much is what the problem is.
I like Tarasview's comment!! I write because I like to write and blogging, even though I am not as consistent at it as I would like to be, gives me the outlet that I need to say things. I mostly write about my kids, sort of record keeping. I was never very good at the whole baby book thing. So blogging is a way to keep track of things my kids say and do.
I have a terrible memory! Blogging allows me to relive what I would have forgotten, as well as interact with friends and family far away. Love it.
I write because I feel compelled to. I've been writing since I was a child and in third grade my teacher told me I should be a writer. Well, when I sit down to write a book- nothing. And I don't have the best grasp of grammar or punctuation, but whatever. Blogging is easier and it fulfills that longing and lets me get on with my life.
When I started blogging it was completely anonymous and I loved that I could write anything. Who was going to judge me, but complete strangers? Unfortunately, friends and family slowly discovered my blog and it has taken me awhile to balance what I want to say and whether or not I always have the guts to say it. I'm finding that balance and writing through my issues and thoughts are cheaper than therapy and a way to deal with myself.
I have no easy answer.Sometimes I don't understand something that's happened until I frame it in the course of writing about it.Sometimes I like playing around with words and ideas and just making shizz up and mixing it in with real-life stuff.Sometimes I feel the process of writing has made me smarter, better able to focus and analyze and see subtleties.Sometimes I like the gratification of knowing I've had an effect on others.And twenty-seventy other reasons.
I guess I blog because I wanna be like you.BTW. . .I think I was in or near your neighborhood today. :)
I do it to exorcise (or exercise) my demons. The jury is still out on which though.
Totally and completely for myself. Which is a good thing considering I have no readers! Usually it is just because I have so much pent up that getting it in writing makes me feel so much better.
I started blogging to get away from legal writing (which has so many rules) and back to more of a freestyle form. I also wasn't finding many blogs from the perspective of full time working moms, so I thought I had something to share.Now, I keep blogging because I love the community that I've become a part of. I know it sounds hokey, but I really value and appreciate the comments on my posts. I would never blog just for comments, but feedback IS fun!
I hope to connect with people.
I actually write my blog because I live 1200 miles away from my sister and it's a good way for her to know what's going on in my life. It's all mediocre ramblings anyway...
I blog to keep family and friends updated on our goings on. Which probably makes for a boring blog, but it is what it is. And it beats writing 8 dozen different emails every week. I have often thought about having a venting blog, one that I could rant and rave about work, but I am too afraid of being found out and losing my job. I hate my job, but also? I like to eat, so I keep going to work every day.
I used to hate when people would say that they wrote because they have to, but yeah, that's pretty much why I write.I think Flannery O'Connor said that she writes so she'll know what she's thinking about. I've found that to be very true.
Because all my life I wanted to keep a diary and I never could. And suddenly there was this way to do it...and people could comment! I mean feedback to a private diary? Who'd have thought of that?
I blog because I love to write, but you see, I'm not all that great at it. My blog is where I can write and I don't have face rejection or criticism, often.
I started writing because I wanted to keep my out of state family in touch. But then writing turned into more than that for me, I found that I enjoyed it. And now I can't imagine NOT having a blog.
i've always enjoyed writing but it never went anywhere.as far as blogging, well, i blog because MIKEY nagged me until i did it... and now i am hooked, and not only do i write my own blog but i spend a lot of time reading other people's blogs...yup. hooked!
