Why do I blog?

First of all, I suck. March is the busiest month of my working year and I decided that this would be the best time to try and post every day. Clearly, that is not happening but I’m trying my best!

To make up for missing the last few days, let me tell you about why I blog. I get this question quite a bit so I’ve had a lot of time to think about this question. Also, I can keep this relatively short…

I blog for me. At the end of the day, I keep a blog for myself. Having followers and readers is just a bonus. I’ve never been good at keeping a journal but this plays the same role for me. I also love writing. I’ve always been a creative person and writing has always been something I’ve wanted to do. I even made it part of almost every job I’ve ever had. Blogging just gives me the push I need to keep writing.

I blog so that I have a record of my life to look back on. Sure, like most people, I have an Instagram and Facebook that I can always look back on. A blog is, somehow, even more personal. I can look back and see who I was and what I was thinking. Life changes and it’s nice to be able to look back to see how.

That’s the simple answer.
