What I Learned About Blogging ... by Not Blogging
After spending a week away from blogging, I learned that my connection to blogging could easily be channeled into other things, like tending to my family or enjoying manual labor or being on vacation. I was surprised that in some ways I did not miss blogging. What I did miss was the morning routine that posting provides and (I admit) the incessant mini-rush that stat checking affords me. Still, I quickly imagined life without The Daily Saint...it made me think: why blog at all?
My answer came a few days later:
- to expand my own sense of humanity: blogging allows me to reach into heart and mind and seek deeper truths and insights.
- to challenge myself: providing quality content each day isn't easy!
- to connect with people who want to improve their lives: it's inspiring to meet folks who share similar values and perspectives.
How about you? What's your reason for blogging?
