I love blogging! I haven’t been doing that much in the past few years and I have always rationalized that it is due to the lack of time or ideas to talk about. But suddenly, this week, a fresh new energy popped up, and I found myself blogging, almost every day. And today is my second blog post too!
And I just realized that it is the act of blogging itself that I really enjoy. It is the act of talking to myself, and putting my thoughts into words. Yes, I can see now that contrary to what I partially used to think:
- I no longer blog to change the world. I have my novels for that.
- I don’t blog to get good traffic and exposure. I used to care about this 13 years back when I started blogging. Not anymore.
- I don’t blog to start heated discussions. I used to enjoy this a lot, but not sure I do anymore.
- I don’t want to be a fashionista or Instagram influencer. I am a blogger and will stay a blogger (slash novelist :P).
I blog because it feels good and I enjoy it. I blog because it is a learning tool, a creative act and a creation platform. It is like meditation to me. Listening to my internal voice, my honest self, brining it up and shaping it into written words.
I simply love it!
