Reasons why I love my blog



  1. There are no rejection letters and the attendant sadness and feeling of not being good enough that comes with it.

Sorry, this is not the content that we want now…sorry, we encourage you to keep sending your work…”

  1. It is a cure for writer’s block.
  2. It provides the opportunity for continued development. A look at my writings have shown a consistent improvement. It is a universal law that you get better at what you do consistently.
  3. It validates me as a writer. I write, so I am a writer!
  4. It takes all my crap. Nothing is never not good enough to be published on my blog
  5. It develops a sense of responsibility and commitment. When you know that you have readers who take the time to click on the links you send them and who constantly look forward to reading your blog, then you have to sit up and ensure you deliver quality content, on time and regularly too.
  6. It fosters a sense of community. My followers and readers are real people and sharing my stories and reading comments posted on them builds relationships with them and allows me to be touched in great ways. It is an opportunity to learn and grow.
  7. It makes me feel good. Angelou said that there is no greater burden than to have an untold story inside of you. Blogging eases that burden.
  8. It is a good avenue to unwind and ventilate. A work is an extension of the artist. Writing for me is cathartic, therapeutic.
  9. It exposes me to other writers and great content in the blogosphere.
