Blog PurposeSeptember 06, 2012
This is my 250th post..
Seems unreasonable to have so many posts within a 10 months time span which gets me thinking.
How many of these posts are genuine and have a meaning behind them?
How many of them are to do with what I'm thinking/feeling?
More often than not these posts of mine are just facts.
Don't get me wrong I love writing to remind myself of the day to day happenings, but this blog was meant to be so much more than that. It first started out being a place where I could write and reflect on my feelings about the things I'm going through and about life in general.
My very first post reads something like this: Life
In my mind this was one of the best posts I've ever written and from there it just went down hill.
Somewhere in the mix of things I lost this intention. I speculate the reason being was not knowing how people's reactions would be toward my feelings and thoughts or even the fact that just going through the daily routine of posting life's happenings was much easier. It takes a lot of time and effort to sit and write a post to be deep and thought provoking or in my case it does.
When I was going to school it was hard enough to find time to even write a post let alone writing one that had a deeper meaning behind it. Now that I am in this new city with so much free time on my hands that I have no idea what to do with myself, it seems like I have ran out of excuses to begin writing with a purpose. That purpose being to relay my feelings onto my posts in hopes of being an encouragement to those who might find my words to be just that, encouraging.
This wasn't the direction I intended on this post taking when I first started writing it, but I feel that it's important to take back my blog and remind myself why I started writing in the first place. I want this blog to be not just a way for my family to keep up with my life, but one day when I'm gone I want it to be a reminder of who I am.
What is your blog's purpose?
I am over here today :)
