When Typepad asked their users to share why they love to blog, I thought this would be a good time to reiterate my feelings about blogging.
Blogging allows me to share my thoughts and connect with those who share similar interests. I find the process to be therapeutic and I enjoy pretending as though I am a writer for a magazine, but it's my magazine.
I spend a lot of time on-line seeking information, researching resources that pertain to my hobbies & interests and take many photos. The one thing I enjoy when reading a magazine is viewing the photos. So it is important to me to include photos with almost every entry.
I recall how anxious I was to share my very first entry on this blog because I am very passionate about my interests and love to elaborate on topics such as scrapbooking, decorating and shopping with anyone and everyone.
It has also afforded me the opportunity to make friends with peers near and far.
And I rarely experience writer's block because when you are writing about something you truly care about, it comes out quite easily into a blog entry.
The world is at our fingertips. I say take the plunge and see what blogging is all about.
