Why Start A Blog?

It feels a little conceited to think that people will care about what I have to say. And yet, it also is very negative to think that no one will care about what I have to say. Double edged sword. Yippee.

So why start a blog anyway?

Well, I love to journal. I love the clarity that comes from putting my thoughts down on paper. It has helped me think through many of the small problems I’ve come across. It also helps me to stop overthinking – something I love to do in my free time.

Whenever I stress about anything, it helps to write down everything that comes to my mind. No filter. No judgment. Just words. It’s really helpful!

The issue with blogging is that I want to filter my thoughts because of judgment or how they may come across to you. I’m a human who experiences anger, sadness, frustration, etc. and those emotions can be extreme to read – especially when you don’t really know who I am.

So why start a blog?

…because I can. Why not try out something new?

My default is always stick to comfort over new experiences – but part of me doesn’t agree with my typical response. So this was one step I took last year (2015) to try and write in a blog format.

I thought…”so many people do this regularly and make a living off it, why can’t I?”

I also thought this was what I wanted to do for a living a few months ago…but now I’m not so sure. Time changes everything, including your thoughts. Mine change daily. So while I don’t know what I want to do, I’m going to keep at this blog – even though I post once every few months (sorry!).

Thanks for reading my random thoughts if you found yourself here. Maybe you found my blog for a reason? Hope you find some answers for yourself here.
