If I didn't have other things to occupy my time I am sure I could be more prolific. At times I feel like I am obsessed with this critter I call my hodgepodge. It has certainly become one.
I seem to have a list going on in my head of topics I would like to explore. Then when I sit down to write, my mind is a blank. Where did that list disappear to?
Because it's my blog anniversary here are some random thoughts on why I blog:
- I have made some wonderful friends through my blog. To my faithful followers I wish to send you a bouquet for sticking with me. Thank you so much.
- Blogging has helped keep my mind active. It has stimulated my aging brain cells and kept them from atrophying. At least, I hope that's the case.
- Keeping up with my blog has given me a reason to get up in the morning
- When you no longer drive and are limited in physical abilities to partake in the social events of yore, blogging lets you do so through reading the blog of other's.
- I have enjoyed vicarious trips to far away places with strange sounding names through reading other blogs.
- Sharing thoughts on random subjects has enabled me to broaden my horizons.
- Blogging is a learning experience. I have discovered that there are many new things and ideas that I didn't know about.
- Blogging can be a way to share your life. It is like having a chat with your best friend. Only you are chatting with many friends.
- Because I am in touch daily with all my blogging friends I don't have time to be lonely.
Nonetheless, I intend to slog on as long as I am able to sit at this keyboard. I have an abiding gratitude for my friends who have overlooked my misspelled words or poor sentence construction and other errors. Thank you all for hanging in there with me on this great adventure called blogging.
