That’s the big question many of us get asked, especially by people who don’t. But that’s okay. It’s a good question – one that we should all be able to answer!
I blog because…
It allows me to share something about myself. In this case, this allows me to share my short stories on Friday’s and provides occasional updates on my novel.
Writer (and blogger / social media expert) Kristen Lamb said it best in her book, We Are Not Alone, the Writer’s Guide to Social Media – “Blogging is really author training. It makes you write good content on a regular basis.” This reminds me of many a conversation overheard at the Navy School of Music, when students would come in to the instructor’s office and ask us why it was so important that they write music every week. I am trying to heed my own advice here.
It expands my conversation with the world. Through my 2 blogs, I have conversed with people in Japan, Germany, England, Australia. New Zealand and many others, as well as a good number of states here in America. And they have all been very nice people. It’s a karma thing, really.
After creating bar chart after bar chart at work each day, I could just go hang out at the bar after work, but instead… I have fun – I blog!
Why do you blog?
