Blogging Challenge Day 2: Why Do You Blog?

If you’ve been around my way for a bit, then you may already know 🙂

To keep it short, I blog because I love writing. I enjoy expressing myself and sometimes I have a lot to say and don’t have the in-person audience to hear me and actually listen. Writing is therapeutic and challenging and fun. People actually read! And the interactions with my readers bring a whole ‘notha delicious layer to blogging.

  1. I blog because I want all of that free work I did as a teacher to maybe actually be of use to other people, and also because I feel a need to write about the long-term structures that we often seem to forget need attention and support.

    1. You are amazing! I remember the teachers that encouraged me and left a big impact. Teachers are invaluable! We all need to treat you like military members and thank you for your service🙏🏾

  2. I don’t blog as much as I used, but when I do..I do it because I just wanna share without being interrupted if I was “talking” about it in person. Lol

  3. For me, it was semi by accident. Started with a Writing 101 challenge where I loved the interaction and still talk with the same blogging friends. And I simply continued. But I write/blog for the same reasons as you.


      1. Actually I started writing as a kid. It was basically my only outlet as a kid of strict immigrant parents. The naysayers got to be too much for me and I gave up writing but not before I sent a query with 3 chapters off to a few anecdote for another time!

  4. You got me at therapeutic, Kelley. The way I feel cleansed after writing gives this weird high.

    It sounds weird when you say it to someone who doesn’t write; but I think other writers get it.

    Personally, I’ve found writing (especially poetry) improves my memory. Each piece is exploring an idea or thought that I link to a particular title. Whenever Im in a conversation I can easily recall associated topics by recalling the title of that piece.

    Crazy how the mind works.

    Just saw you’re taking part in the blogging challenge. Really came back with a bang 🔥 excited to see what you have in store for us ⭐️

    1. Oh definitely. Writing clears the busy writer’s mind! It really does exercising the brain.

      I need to hear more about your experience with poetry in particular improving memory. I write everything down which definitely helps with memory and affirmations and staying on task(to-do lists), but I never recognized a difference that poetry makes.

      And I never left LOL! I’m back with more of a tap than a bang. I’m just.. trying.
      Thanks for being here 🙂
