This post has been edited for Tip Junkie’s Talk To Me Tuesday post on Why I Blog.
Lately, I’ve been evaluating all the time and energy I expend blogging. Is it worth it? I call this my “Blog Identity Crisis”.
Every couple months I go through the same dialogue in my head and ultimately decide to keep going. I really do love blogging. Since I have a terrible memory, I’m glad that memories which would normally be lost, are caught on film and in writing here on my blog.
I love keeping up with friends near and far. I really enjoy making new blogging buddies and connecting with people through our trials and interests!
What I love most about blogging is the excitement I feel when I get inspired by someone! I’m constantly amazed by YOU strong and talented women.
I’m inspired by your writing style, I’m inspired by what a compassionate person you are, I’m inspired by the fun things you do and your travels, I’m inspired by your imagination and what you create. I’m constantly amazed at how open you are about your life and how you’re able to let so many people in to your deepest thoughts. I’m inspired by your business sense and how you go for dreams and make them come true. I’m inspired by your mothering skills and it makes me want to be a better one. You’ve made me laugh and you’ve made me cry. I could go on and on.
To think, I almost didn’t blog at all. I would consider my writing, grammar, and story telling abilities to be my worst attributes. I’m not kidding. However, I decided to bite the bullet, put my insecurities behind me, and go for it. I’m really glad that I did.
My goal for this blog is not only to keep it real and share my life, but also to share the tips and time-savers I learn along the way. I hope you find it valuable and uplifting.
So my question to you is, why do you blog and have you had a ‘blog identity crisis’?
