I’ve been thinking about posting this for a long time now, I just never actually got around to it. after seeing a post on decor8 a few weeks ago about “how we feel about our blog” I got to thinking about it. why do I blog? for me, blogging is my chance to reach out and share my thoughts. whenever I’ve felt down, needed a pick me up, or just couldn’t find the right way to say something, I’ve resorted to writing. actually, I resorted to typing. before I even knew what a blog was, I had a journal on my computer. maybe it was that I’ve always been on the fence with my handwriting, or maybe it’s that having a file hidden on my computer made it harder for someone to stumble upon, but whatever it was, typing just felt better for me. then last year, I discovered blogging. at the time I had a myspace account, and my blogs were simply thoughts, or random musings, jammed into the pages of my account. I didn’t post pictures, or things that I liked, I just posted my thoughts. it was nice to go back and read what I wrote, and reflect on how I felt at the time. but then people started reading, and taking interest. and it felt good.
so to answer the question, I blog because it makes me feel good. I enjoy sharing things I find. I enjoy posting little snippets of color. I enjoy making new friends. and I enjoy expressing myself. thank you for reading and enjoying my unruly.things.
