I've been thinking about blogging over the past few days, after reading a post by a blogging friend who asked why her readers blog.
So why do I blog?
I originally started almost two years ago after I read that agents and publishers are more willing to look at manuscripts by authors who have platforms.
Soon, though, I realized that blogging is so much more than that. It helps me share my thoughts and feelings with many people, some of whom actually know what I'm trying to talk about.
It's a place where people support and help each other, especially in things that make most people that I know think that I'm stupid and/or insane.
It's nice to be heard.
But another reason why I blog? Well... it keeps me honest. It gives me a reason to explore my thoughts and feelings about sometimes difficult topics. Then, it gives me the motivation I need to act on those revelations that I wrote down.
None of that would have been possible if it wasn't for you, blog reader. Friend.
