This memo was recently sent to me on FB. I thought it was so true. Except, I am not being followed by the police, private investigator or psychiatrist. Sometimes I think the same way about blogging. Why do we do it? I like to think I am helping others decide where to go on vacation and share things I have enjoyed while I was on mine. I like to get off the beaten path and stay at different lodgings than most. So I share. I like to take photos, so I share. I like to think of my blogging as more of a journal. I like to think my great-grandchildren will read my posts and know something about me. Ask most children who their great-grandparents were and they don’t even know their names, much less anything about them! When I was in a writing class a few years ago I lamented that I liked to write personal stories, family history or about everyday occurrences when others liked to write about zombies, warlocks, space travel and such. A gentleman came up to me after the class and said, “Don’t worry, in the end, reading about how people lived is all anyone will want to know about.” Hmmm…….I’ll keep blogging and writing then. What do you think? Why do you blog?
