5 Reasons Why I Blog...

Well, it seems that I’ve been tagged by both Susan (The Urban Muse) and Yvonne (Grow Your Own Business) to post on why I blog. I’ve already read a number of other posts on this and I’d say that we are all in it for the same reasons - motivation, learning, conversation, entertainment, and self improvement.

Blogging allows me to:

1. Remain motivated. Before I started this blog, my motivation and determination to write fluctuated as much as the weather. With blogging, I have been able to maintain my motivation to become a writer.

2. Continue learning. Five months ago I didn’t even know what a blog was. Since then I have learned so much about blogging, HTML language, and internet technology.

3. To have conversations. This is a great way to get together with other people from around the world to discuss topics that interest you. I’ve learned that there are so many aspiring and established writers out in the blogosphere who want to meet with others and talk about writing, etc.

4. To be entertained. It’s not all work. There’s a lot of entertaining and fun stuff out there to keep everyone amused. Laughter, as they say, is the best medicine.

5. To improve. Posting everyday forces me to write whether I want to or not. Learning to write concise, topic centered, short posts provides practice for the FOB pieces that most magazines run.

So there you go. I’m hooked. Hope it’s not an addiction…'Hello, my name is Liz and I'm a blogger'.

I’m tagging Kristen over at Inkthinker, Karen at A Writer’s Blog, and Linda and Diane over at The Renegade Writer

And anyone else who wants to be tagged - it’s on me…

Meanwhile, I’m off to paint the bathroom…
