After being off WordPress for 30 days, let me start off by saying HELLO MY FRIENDS!
I think of my blogging as a way to connect to others, and to give and receive support as I try to make sense of this life and move forward and grow. By sharing my fears and experiences many folks can relate, chime in, and at the point I don’t feel so alone. I don’t do it for money or amount of followers or likes. The folks I follow on WordPress I like to call superheroes. They share things never discussed in most coffee talk conversations and force themselves to look into the eyes of their dragon. That’s what makes me coming back over and over.
I usually take 30 days or so off each year just for the sake of changing up my routine. It helps me look in from the outside and also casts light on new areas I may want to explore. This last week I connected some dots around my blogging. I was a bit out of sorts if you will. A wobble may best describe the feeling. Not totally wiped out by any means, but just the start of that flow. I realized that by not blogging, I was replaying many themes over and over in my head. By writing things out I can explore it up one side and down the other and most importantly release it when I’m done. This discovery made me understand blogging is part of my therapy of being human. If you know me, you know I look at life as a frickin trip good and bad, so yes I need therapy. This wasn’t a tool I realized I was using to cope, but in the last few days it became crystal clear,
Many folks who journal already know this truth that writing down our thoughts and ideas is very therapeutic. Blogging does just that for me with the added bonus of sharing and bouncing all that off others forming connections I need. Letting me know I’m not as crazy Mr.Hyde likes to whisper in my ear.
I’m very human and need to blog! I’m curious why do you blog?
