Why I blog

     I'm sure I speak for every blogger out there when I say, we all have a few reasons we blog. There is always something that drives us to write, share our thoughts, and opinions. Since I haven't shared why I blog I figured that it's a good time to share this!

    What motivates me the most to write is the fact that I want to be able to look back on what I have done and experienced in my teenage life. I have found blogging as the most effective way of writing all this stuff down. I have always tried writing in a journal but had always failed to keep it updated. With blogging it was different. I found out about blogging three years ago, at the start of high school, and now I am a junior in high school; I am endlessly proud that I have kept up with writing on a blog. I don't do it for the page views, followers, comments (although I do love comments), or fame. I blog for myself, without the intention of getting blog famous. I simply want to remember the teenage years and so on.

    The following reason that I keep blogging is that through writing I can better understand my thoughts. By writing about something I can easily figure out how I feel about it. In August when I had to move, (Click Here) emotions were shed as I wrote about what had happened. A little after writing about having to move and saying goodbye to August I had a clear understanding of what upset me and what I thought about August. That was the post that allowed me to see that writing can be emotion filled and therapeutic. Writing has kept all my thoughts together and made me a stronger person.

    I have no idea how to end this post after these two paragraphs, so let me just say whatever be your reasons for writing, don't lose your inspiration! (:
Much love,
Vanessa

  1. I blog pretty much just because it's fun!

    I do keep a journal, which I updated very regularly from the beginning of sixth grade to the middle of the eighth grade, but I've gotten kind of lazy and nowadays I usually only write an entry once a month or so, and usually only when I'm really mad or emotional about something. So blogging for me is also kind of a way to look back and see the events that were important in my life, but that I didn't get down in my journal.

    1. That's also a really good reason! I wouldn't be blogging if it wasn't. That's nice that you keep a journal. It's really cool to read something that's your own handwriting.

  4. I feel the exact same! Writing makes me sort out my emotions, and I can figure out how I feel about something. Sometimes I'll get to writing something, and never post it, because it's so personal. But that's the beautiful thing about blogging, you can make it as personal as you want too.

    1. Good to know I'm not the only one who feels like that! I know what you mean, I have done the same thing. It just helps to write things out and there is no pressure of having to post something you don't feel comfortable posting.
