Is blogging right for you?
“You don’t write because you want to say something, you write because you have something to say.”
-F. Scott Fitzgerald
Some people have a lot to say, even when stumped at the process of conveying it.
Some people claim to have nothing to say, but I don’t believe it. We’ve all got stories, fascinating experiences, once in a lifetime opportunities, horrific accidents, major upsets and downfalls, flaws, skills, talents…Human beings are fascinating, each with a story to tell.
That being said, it’s up to you to voice it. It’s also up to you to choose to voice it. Keep it to yourself or share it…upside down.
There’s beauty in writing it down, because eventually the memory fades. The experience becomes rusted and unclear, not readily available to describe and depict like in the present experience.
“I believe we should all assess our lives from time to time. Have we reached our goals? Are there things we can weed out that we don’t need? I’m not talking about throwing away old shoes or broken chairs. I mean we need to lose our bad habits or lazy ways that hold us back and clutter our minds.”
Anyway, I write to understand. I write to encourage. When my thoughts are all array, I know someone out there will relate with the jumble of words etched on the screen.
Or if nothing else, enjoy the color.
Blogging works for me, but it’s definitely not for everyone.
There are some pretty cool perks though. 😉

That’s all for today.
Question for you: If you blog, why do you do it? If you don’t, why not?
