Why DO we? To teach, learn, share, meet new people? An unexplainable urge to communicate with the world at large? I recently read one guy’s blog who said “It’s much cheaper than sitting in a bar complaining about politicians, and less people are drunk”. Another blogger said “because no one will listen to me at home”. Another writes “to create my parallel in the Universe” HUH? insert eerie music here.
Please read on, and when you’re finished I’d love to hear back from you: Why do you blog?
I’m still learning why I blog. At first it was because my Facebook posts were all about food, what I was cooking, a “here kitty kitty” to my friends. So blogging was a natural next step. The most pleasant surprise to me has been meeting the blogging community, lots of fun connections out there.
I started my blog in June of this year, so feedback and comments are so much fun and important to me right now. A couple of weeks ago, Broncos were playing Cincinnati, so I got a wild hair and decided to make Cincinnati Chili. I blogged it. A few days later I received this picture from Karen in Wichita. I got the biggest dog gone grin on my face when I saw this. LOVED LOVED LOVED it. It just doesn’t get any better. Karen lives in Wichita, Kansas. I noticed her blog because I grew up in Hutchinson, about 40 miles away. Great blog. Great pictures, her style of writing is technically great and filled with humor. Please visit www.eclecticcook.com
And then yesterday Year on the Grill up and features me on his blog. Take a look by clicking here. I was speechless…flaberghasted… It was so exciting to read about his perspective on my blog. I’m really enjoying reading Year On The Grill. He’s getting ready to travel to my favorite culinary city, New Orleans. Can’t wait to read his posts when he returns.
I’ve gone from a snooty “I don’t have time to read blogs” to “Hello, my name is Lea Ann, and I’m a blogaholic” . I nagged my good friend in Montana until she started a blog, take a look at Vickie’s “Part Three” by clicking here. My next nagging project is my friend Dan. Dan, if you’re reading this, doesn’t it make you feel guilty as hell that your name is highlighted like it actually links to something…but it leads to nowhere land? That’s right readership, Dan has no link. =:-0 nag….nag….nag….
