Why am I here (in the blogosphere)?
I can’t believe I’m actually writing my first blog post! This has been something I have wanted to do for a long time…but why? Well here are my top 5 reasons for writing this blog…
1 Because I’m writing anyway
I am someone who journals and writes a lot anyway. I have an overflow of thoughts and ideas that often make their way onto paper, so blogging is going to be a fun way for me to share those thoughts with others. Those who know me will know that I’m rarely at a loss for things to say. I have plenty of opinions, ideas and logical thoughts, so why not see if all my ramblings are of any use/interest to someone else?
2 To find my people
Don’t get me wrong, I have lots of lovely friends and family, many of whom fit into this category, but I’m looking for even more like-minds. I have four children to look after so I don’t get out much and this seems like a fantastic opportunity to connect with the world.
I am a person who delights in self-development, self-empowerment and life-hacks with a sprinkling of spirituality, old fashioned values and happiness. I love to meditate, live life on purpose and enjoy life. I feel like I’m placing some kind of dating add (I’m not) but I hope that I can be one of your people and you can be one of mine.
3 To promote my book/business
I’m currently writing a book that I’m very excited about and building a business that I love. I’m not going to bang on about it too much now but I can share information on this blog that I think might be interesting or entertaining and everyone can know that it’s out there.
4 To spread a little happiness
I am the happiest person I know. I am irritatingly happy and this is no accident, I am not the richest person, or the most popular person and I don’t have the easiest life (I have four children for goodness sake) but I do know how to be happy. If I could give the gift of happiness to another that would be my greatest pleasure and if you are irritatingly happy already then it is a pleasure to meet you!
5 For fun
I just think it seems like a really fun thing to do, something I’m simply going to enjoy. This is something for me, it may help me to organise my thoughts, it may help me to improve my writing but ultimately I’m just going to have fun with it.
Are you someone who writes a blog? Are your reasons similar to mine or do you have another interesting motive? I would love to hear your thoughts and any comments or encouragement gratefully received…
