McLinky Monday: Why Do I Blog
The McLinky Monday question of the day from the RHOK is Why Do I Blog! Interesting question and actually I am asked that a lot by people who have no idea what a blog is or even what a website is (scary.) My first blog was June 28, 2006. It was 3 months after my best friend passed away very suddenly, I turned 50, my mother was dying, we moved and became empty nesters. I had a lot going on then and needed to vent somehow. I have journaled for years and years and so blogging was the next step for me. I like to write. I'm not necessarily good at it but I like to write. Writing gives me a good outlet to express and before it just stayed between me, myself and I. Blogging is me, myself, I and the world! I like that. I like an audience, even though it is somewhat a hidden audience. Back to June of '06, I was in deep depression and total sadness and the blogging helped me to vent and let out some of it, still does. I blog to let the world know a little about me. I blog for my health, my mental health. I blog because I have found friends, never meet kind of friends sometimes but I like that too. I have always been a big letter writer. I even have a pen pal that I have written too since I was about 15 years old...I'm 54...you do the math. I blog because in a way I feel not so lost in this world. Blogging is fun and I encourage anyone to do it. I blog!
