Why Do I Want To Blog?

So I ask myself, "why do I want to blog?" Actually this question was the first assignment of the Reflection of You e-course I just started so I'm taking the time to think about it.

Blogs discovered me a few months ago. My new neighbor and good friend, Monica has a blog where she shares updates of her life with friends and family.  And as I started looking online, the blogging world opened to me. Guess I'm not telling you anything new, but there are blogs out there for a-n-y thing!  So I was sort of hooked.  

One concern was time. How do I blog regularly and not allow it to suck up all my time???  I haven't figured that out yet, but I'm guessing some discipline is going to be involved. If you have any tips, please pass them along.

So why do I blog...I can't come up with just one answer.

1. Connection to people of similiar interests

2. A hope to find an artist's community

3. Curiousity and Inspriation - I know how I cook, photograph, etc. I want to know more about how you approach it.

4. A love of photography - Some of my favorite blogs pop with color and wonder.

5. A love of combining photography, texture and words - call it a passion. I can not get enough.

So now I ask...why do you blog?

p.s. It'sclose to 100 degrees here and after Friday night's storm, some are still without electricity. So I couldn't resist including a "cool" memory taken last June. I was in a raincoat on a boat and loving every minute of it!

  2. Terrific post...I did the same...used bullet points to list the reasons and know I'll think of more. As a "green" (which is a description of a personality-type), I've thought it wasn't easy being green...but now I embrace it. My grandson's favorite color is green...are you sure you two aren't related? Thanks for the COOL photo! From BTS...looking forward to getting to know you better!

  3. I really like the simplicity of your blog header. "Why do I Blog" shows a lot of thought and insight.
    P. S. I also love your photos.....particularly the macros.

  4. One thing, it get easier. You develope fall back posistions. But your should have a notebook to keep topics in your head. But of course I do not heed my advice.
