Why Do YOU Blog?

I kind of feel like I have been slacking on my blogging lately…. or have I?  After spending some time thinking about why I blog, I have come to realize that really, I blog when I need an outlet… when I feel like I am cut off from adult interaction, and feel like I need to use my brain in a way other than to trick my two year old into eating healthy snacks or teaching her toddler things.

With that being said…. If I don’t write posts am I slacking? Or am I just busy living life? Maybe a little bit of both?

These past couple of weeks our routine has gone to crap. We have barely done any letter of the week activities and obviously I have barely written a post.  BUT, Daddy has been on vacation AND Nainy and Grampy came to visit!!  We have been on the go at all times!! With all the excitement I have barely even thought about writing.  Now that everything is settling down I am looking forward to getting back to our routine, including giving some attention to my blog.

So, this has got me wondering…. why do YOU blog?

  1. so true! my blogging is for the same reason. and i actually thought the other day how i havent blogged a lot, but we’ve had a lot going on so its hard for me to fully indulge in the outlet…
    so it is definitely my writing outlet… moms definitely need outlets!

  2. I keep a posting schedule and stick to it … and I have a series of post-its with post ideas on it, so I can somehow keep to things. I blog to express those ideas that I get at all times during the days and write on my post-its. When something strikes me as funny or just moving, I want to write about it.
    But the reason I originally started a blog was to generate an “online presence” to support my future author career. Haha – trying to keep the dream alive, at least. 🙂
    Good luck getting back to your blogging – I’ve been wondering where your posts are!! But summer is often a busy family time.

    • I like the idea of a posting schedule. I don’t think I’d ever stick to one though. I try to post on Monday’s and then at some point each week for a letter of the week post, other than that it’s whenever the stars align and I can actually type. I do need to start writing down my ideas though. I forget most of them by the time I actually sit down to do it.
      Ooh what kind of writing do you aspire to do?
      Thanks for noticing that I was gone! I’m hoping to get back to it this week!

      • I can’t believe I can stick to one! It’s been a year for me – that must be a personal record. I really recommend getting a small notebook or stack of post-its, and keep them out with a pen next to it so you can always jot down a quick line!
        I’m for fiction … genre fiction, with maybe a touch of scifi. I’m working on getting published, but it’s a loooong game…..

      • I think I am going to start doing that. I started a list on my phone but one swift bat of his arm and my little monster deleted it hahah.

        That’s so awesome!! I would love to read it when you’re at that point. Good luck!
