Daily Prompt: Million-Dollar Question
Why do you blog?
There are many reasons why I blog. As you read, I have included links to just a few of the many fine bloggers I have had the pleasure of meeting here. My apologies to all my friends who I didn’t include today, besides keeping this post brief, it might also be you haven’t posted recently.
First its a social medium, consisting of amateurs and professionals. It allows me to gain insight from the blogger, writing from the crapper in the outback, to the gnome hiding in the mountains. Oh wait, now you want to know who I’m referring to, well just head on over to that widget in the lower right on my blog, the one that says community. Yup community, it’s the main reason I blog. From learning the inner working’s of an evil nymph’s mind, to a declaration of who someone is, to visiting a kingdom, and then off to see what’s for lunch. Of course when your middle aged it helps to understand that generation following us, or see how someone handles living in a different country. Then there’s the day when you want a deeper understanding of something, or just a reflective view of something many people take for granted. Sometimes you just want someone to share coffee with, or a slice of Tiramisu. Then there’s the day when you just feel like a deer dazzled by the oncoming headlights.
Plus there’s the getting my view out there, such as my other post today, in reaction to current events. So the reasons may vary, but blogging is expression and after all is said and done, that’s just life.
