Originally I had a different post in mind for today. But then I read Embracing My Reality by Kristen over at A Little Something for Me and it inspired me.
We were both at Bloggy Boot Camp this weekend and I came back full of ideas and plans. But somehow I had forgotten the question she writes about in her post.
“Who do you write your blog for? Who do you want to read it?”
I was focusing on goals and forgot this very basic building block to my blog.
So as I lay in bed last night (where I write my most brilliant posts in my head), I thought about who I write for. And I figured it out.
I write for me.
To record moments. Those I want to remember. Those that touch me in some way.
To work through obstacles. Those issues that can tear me down. Writing helps to build me back up.
To learn more about myself and about life. Everyday I learn and grow through my writing.
I write for you.
My journey might help you or touch you in some way. You can know you are not alone in your feelings.
My journey might give you ideas or make you think about something in a different way. Maybe you will see something that you didn’t before.
If nothing else, maybe my journey will leave you thinking, “Man, glad I am not that chick”
I wrote a while back about how I wanted to use my blog to help myself and others.
I need to keep that in mind because at the end of the day, I write for us.
