Pen to Paper (to Screen): Why I Started Blogging

I have had several blogs here and there over the years, and to be honest, none of them really stuck. The first time I tried to blog, it was mostly just to see what it was like. But I felt pressure to write even if I had nothing to say, so really it wasn't very good.

 I learned through several incarnations that for me a blog only works when I:

  • Have something to say
  • Want to share an idea or resource
  • Have to tell someone about a book
  • Or just want to write
I don't worry about followers or hits.  I really write for me.  It's almost a journal.  If someone else benefits, learns, or enjoys a post, great!  If not, I had fun writing it and sending it out into the ether.  Why do you blog (or why don't you?)

  1. Hello!

    Thank you for participating in my linky party! Welcome aboard and hopefully I will see more of your posts throughout the summer!

    I love your stress-free attitude about blogging! You are absolutely right about forcing out a blog post. I will keep your little checklist next to my computer so that I will only post things that are relevant and from the heart!

    Thanks again for linking up!

  3. I am so happy to be in this link-up because it helps me very much to write when I have a topic. Titles can be hard to think of too, for me. :) I posted why I started blogging here: http://twinkleteaches.blogspot.com/2015/06/weekly-summer-link-up-why-i-started.html
