There are millions of blogs and bloggers out there already. I know, I did my research, but I still wanted to be a “blogger”. Maybe its the word, “Blogger”. I love the word! Crazy, right?
For a long time, I have wanted to blog, years in fact! How about you? I thought about it, dreamed about it, how mine could be different or “the one”. Haha
One day, I realized the reason I wanted to start a blog was to have a place to write, simple as that, so I bought my hosting through Bluehost, set up through WordPress, and started my blog! A place where I could write about anything my little heart desired. I knew that I had knowledge of many different areas that I could share as well. That’s why I started a blog. If I only help one person with an idea or teach one person how to make that budget stretch, or made one friend who really understands me as a person, then I’ve done what I started out to do.
I blog for me because I love to write. Because I love to share things with others, but most of all I blog in the hopes to make enough money to support my kids. Sharing from my heart and sharing what I know is a way for me to do that.
You see, I have depression and anxiety, it doesn’t help that I am an introvert as well. My depression is not so good right now and that makes anything and everything set off the anxiety. Even being content sitting at home doing everything I possibly can online, from shopping to making money. I still get anxious over so many things!
Writing is my way out, my way of “talking” and “connecting” with others. Another great reason for blogging for me. I truly do want to connect with people, being an introvert doesn’t mean I don’t want true friends, it just means it hard for me to take that first step towards a person for fear of rejection. (I have faced this all my life, my “friends” have always been my partner’s friends. Not my real friends, people who like me for me.) A friend who calls you up to go out for a cup of coffee or who wants to talk about life’s ups and downs. And as an adult or a mommy, it is even harder to make friends.
Do you blog? If so, what is your reason behind your blog?
