Morning everyone! Senkyoshi has challenged me to post five reasons why I blog. It is something that I've had to think about. A year ago, I didn't know the difference between a blog or a forum The first time I registered to join a forum, I panicked when it asked me start a thread. What's a thread??? Of course, eventually I figured it out! So, here goes.
#1. I was amazed to discover personal blogs--places people were talking about themselves and their lives. I thought having one might be a good way to share my life and faith as a Christian wife and mom.
#2. Blogland is full of interesting people and places. You can read about a lady gardening in Australia or someone taking a walk down a country road in Wales--the possibilities are endless once you start looking.
#3. I love to write and think that this is good practice. Some days are better than others on the writing skills, LOL.
#4. I hoped to make friends with a lot of these amazing people I was reading about. And I have!! I live in a very remote area and good friends who have things in common with me aren't easy to come by. Senkyoshi is in Japan, Carol is in Germany, Sue is in MO, Tammy is in OH and the list goes on and on. There is no other way I would have had the opportunity to meet any of you wonderful people these past few weeks.
#5. Last, blogging is just plain fun. I enjoy it everyday--even when what I say seems to be boring or mundane, someone comes along and leaves a sweet and uplifting comment for me. Thanks all of you for your friendship.
Now, if you girls are interested in telling us why you blog: I tag Tammy at Among Friends, Betty at Country Charm and anyone else who would like to tell us why you've taken up the 'challenge' of blogging.
Everyone have a great day.
