Why I Love Blogging
People write blogs for a variety of reasons. The first time I launched my blog the end of 2013 as an author platform. As time went by I realized that my blog offered more than just an author platform and it wasn't just about numbers. It served a completely different and more fundamental reason. I would even say that it's changed how I view and experience my life. This is why, if you're considering setting up a blog, then I'd strongly recommend it. If you're using your blog for the right purposes. If you're starting blogs to earn money or even to eke out an income, don't count on it. Making money from a blog is extremely difficult these days. In fact, after three years I'm not yet making any money from my blog. Don't trust the hype of those who offer online courses that claim that blogging is an excellent way to earn passive income. No doubt, writing and promoting a blog can be a lot of work. There's nothing passive about it. In reality, it's easy to be frustrated when you first begin blogging. As a technically-challenged person, I had to learn WordPress. Then, I spent lots of time marketing my blog and trying to reach an audience. The other thing I knew nothing about. Like most bloggers I became overwhelmed - and even depressed by the number of visitors, subscribers, and how many subscribers, visitors, and Facebook followers I had on any given day. The truth is that growing readership for a blog takes an enormous amount of time, effort, and patience.

A few people might disagree with me, but I feel blogging shouldn't just be about earning money, drumming up business, building a huge following, chasing fame, or trying to sell books. Writing blogs can be a creative channel to voice ideas thoughts, thoughts and opinions thoughts, beliefs and emotions. Furthermore blogging provides a wonderful opportunity to inspire and affect the lives of others in a positive manner. My life changed by blogging My blog has definitely seen me through many ups and downs in the last few years. I've written about joyful moments such as a trip to Chicago and my hubby to commemorate our anniversary, spending a day playing in the snow with my grandchildren, and watching Paul McCartney and the Rolling Stones at Desert Trip and the quick trip on a weekend with my kids to San Francisco. I've also spilled my heart out while caregiving to my Mom who suffered of Lewy Body dementia and wrote about her eventual passing. I shared my angst when my mother-in law passed away from cancer of the ovary and my son went through a painful custody battle and divorce in the same year. (Ironically, shortly after I began writing my blog about happiness, I experienced one of the worst years in my entire life.) Yes, I enjoy reading, and it is a welcome respite from the snares of life, but writing is my real escape as well as a way to express my passion. As I compose, I become more focused and my problems go away for a time providing me with a much needed break. In fact, if you're truly a writer, I guarantee you that it's an ongoing addiction! The process of the process of putting my thoughts and thoughts into writing has brought me ease and comfort, and also helped me remember happy moments.writer As I've written about my lifeexperiences, my blog has helped me reflect on the things that matter to me and determine if my life is headed toward the direction I want it to. Since I can't record every single moment, idea, thought, and experience, blogging is a sort of filter, clarifying my life. My blogs have helped me discover what's important to me. I've discovered along the way that it's sometimes the simplest occasions that can make me the happiest. Embracing Creativity Being a professional writer, my blog allows me the creativity and freedom to express myself. I'm not trying to blow up anyone's balloon however, writing can sound more glamorous than it actually is actually. For most of the past two decades, I've written pieces on topics that magazines newspapers, publishers and clients choose for me. Yes, I've published two books for young adults with travel stories, humorous pieces and feature articles about interesting people. It was fun. On the other hand in order to earn money, I've written articles that bored me to tears. I've written technical articles and even a technical book that brought my an Excedrin headache and made me numb. I've had to write on demand and have met deadlines set by other authors and writing late into the evening as my brain is trying to stop. Don't get me wrong. I may sound whiny however I am fully aware that I'm lucky enough to have made a living in a field I enjoy. I wouldn't have had it any other way. The main point is that this blog is mine. I write about topics that I'm interested in and feel strongly about, and I hope that my readers will be as well. The blog helps me stretch as a writer as I explore, experiment, and try new things whenever my muse strikes. Writing professionally has taught me the determination to publish blogs every week However, I write my blogs when I want to. And believe me, that's not before the crack of dawn or after 10:00 pm at night! This is luxurious. So, those are some of the ways in which blogging has changed my life. As I mentioned earlier, the major benefit is that blogging can change other people's lives as well. Some people have left comments letting me know that I had in a small way helped them or given them valuable information, and this always is a source of great joy for me. The blog I write on has provided the chance to meet readers and other bloggers, which has been so satisfying.
