Finish the Sentence Friday: Why I blog
This week's sentence to finish is:
I blog because...
... I was searching for a community that does not exist in my real life. Because there is no place where we really fit in. And I am so glad I found it because of blogging.
... blogging is fun. It is a great way to find new, funny, and interesting stuff and people all around the world. Blogging makes my small living room a big bar full of lovely people (because I only meet those I like) where we can connect and chat away for hours.
... it is a great outlet to vent or to share my frustrations - and also to share the good stuff and the things that make me happy. Because sharing the bad things makes them only half bad while sharing the good things makes them twice as good.
... it helps me practicing my English.
... it has become my kind of journal. Since I was a teenager I always had a journal but when I got older I neglected writing more and more. Now I wish I had kept all those lost memories. Then I tried to write a journal on my computer but I found it hard to do it consistently. With the blog I somehow feel "compelled" to write on a regular basis which is a good thing because it helps me keep all the memories and things that are important to me.
... it helps me to think about stuff I maybe would never think about. Like finishing those Friday sentences for example. ;-) Or dealing with a subject that is buried deep inside me and blogging makes me think about it while I write. Very often the thoughts spill directly from my brain into my fingers.
... I found some really good friends and amazing people in this big, wide blogosphere (like here, here or here for example, just to name a few; there are so many more of you!). They get what I mean and their comments always brighten my day (like all the other comments do, too!).
... blogging is the best time sucker in the history of mankind. There is nothing more efficient when it comes to getting around cleaning the kitchen than getting completely lost in the gazillion of blogs on my blog list and to follow the links on their blogs. It is like going down a huge, gigantic black hole. It is so massive that it even swallows every sound. However, it does not come in so handy when you really have no time to waste but you want to read just one more update and just one more message or answer one more comment. Ugh.
... in the end, it is all Kristi's fault! Because I stumbled upon her blog and thought - in a split second - that I needed to have my own blog in order to connect with other parents in similar situations. Thank you so much Kristi, for motivating me to blog without even knowing it! xoxo
