What I Love About My Blog

 It’s mine. I answer to no one. I write what I want, when I want (or maybe when I have time). But if I don’t write, that’s okay too. My blog is not dependent on the weather, it isn’t just “another thing” I have to do. It doesn’t matter if I’m politically correct, who I may or may not offend, or even who agrees with me. It doesn’t care if I’m exhausted and have nothing left to give. That’s okay, it’ll wait.

Yes, at times my blog can be frustrating, time consuming, and perplexing. If I have a terrible post that not a single person reads, it’s okay. No one can take it away if they disagree with how I manage it or what I write.  No one can tell me what I have to do or how I have to do it. I can (heaven forbid) spell every single word on it wrong and break every grammar rule ever written. I can, all because it’s mine. Sure, I may sound like my two year old saying that, but I’m also okay with that.

Do I write for my readers? Of course. Would I like to one day make enough money from it to legitimately say that it is my “job?” Of course. But mostly I write because I feel I have something to share, something that is unique. Something that maybe, just maybe someone will understand. That maybe it will make someone smile. Maybe it will make someone look at the world in a little different way, through different eyes. Maybe in some tiny way, the words I share might put a little good into a world filled with way too much bad. Perhaps the words, thoughts, and ideas I share will tip the scales on the side of right.

Then again, maybe it is just a blog. But it’s my blog.

Maybe I’m selfish, but it’s all mine. We all need something all to ourselves. What’s your something?

    My morning coffee in the car on the way to work…with 2 boys asleep.

    That’s exactly how I feel about blogging! It’s all mine, I have control over it, what goes in, what gets shared – well, I don’t mind a bit of help with the sharing haha! But it’s great isn’t it to be part of a community and to share your voice! I love blogging! #momsterlink

    We all need something that belongs to us and us alone. I love my blog for the same reason 🙂

    that’s a great attitude. There are days when it is a struggle to remember why I put so much time and effort into this little hobby, but like you say, its all mine

    I couldn’t agree more! I love having a space all my own that no one else has a right to tell me what to do with. Sure I’ve probably offended quite a few people but my motto is if you don’t like it then don’t read it. Thanks so much for linking up with #momsterslink and hope to see you again tomorrow!

      Thanks for reading! Even in the giant World Wide Web, it is nice to have our own little corner ?.

    What a great way to feel about your blog. I always try to keep that in mind when I feel a bit pressured that I’m behind in posts I said I would do. I’m doing this as a hobby, and its all mine! If people are not happy with the way I do it and write it, then it doesn’t matter.
    Great post, thank you.

      Thanks for stopping by Amanda! I totally agree. When it really comes down to it, I think all bloggers do it because it makes us happy- or else we wouldn’t bother. Somehow it still turns out that I’m my own worst critic. Lol!
