  1. Thank you for sharing those thoughts. Your post is informative and helpful! I’m blogging because I’m trying to make sense of the bubbling cauldron of emotions that’s cooking away inside me. Maybe others blog for the same reason. I’ve certainly read lots of interesting posts. Please keep up your advice. It’s desperately needed! 🙂


  2. Since I don’t blog under my full name, I sometimes think I might be wasting my time with it, even though I enjoy it tremendously. I’m pleased to see that many of the reasons you list show that I’m getting a lot out of it anyway!
    I’ve received so much encouragement and gained a lot of confidence putting my words out there for random strangers to read–and sharing words is what this gig is all about, isn’t it?
    Besides, I’ve met some really cool people! 😉
