Why do I blog?

One year ago I started my lifestyle blog.

The last couple months I’ve not only had writer’s block, but I’ve also been so crazy busy that I’ve had no time to sit down and put my thoughts together for any blogging at all. If you’re a blogger you’ve probably been there.

I decided to not put pressure on myself….. just let it ride for a while and enjoy all the blessings of the season.

Putting it aside made me reflect. Blogging takes a LOT of time, energy and effort. I began to wonder, why do I blog? I thought about that question for a while.

I had to remind myself.

I blog because I want to encourage women of all ages to be fabulous, to live each day to the fullest….to be themselves.

I blog because I want to tell others how much God loves them.

My blog is a creative outlet for me like painting or dressing or baking. Something about owning my own blog where I can share my ideas and discoveries is very satisfying and fun. It’s my sorta “all-in-one creative place.”

It’s a place where I can express who I am and what I love.

Like moments when God shows me His creation.

I blog because I love to cook and bake and share incredible recipes.

Like this AWESOME cake.

Sometimes I just want to share thoughts, ideas, books and stories that I think others might find helpful.

It’s a place where I learn about myself and other people.

It’s a place where I can share my love of fashion and ways to put together a great looking outfit.

Something inspired you to start your blog. Maybe it’s your business. Maybe it’s just a hobby. Maybe you love to writeMaybe it’s a creative outlet.

Maybe it’s all of these and more.

Maybe you need to remind yourself what it was.

I recently read this blog by Ann Voskamp of “A Holy Experience” and she said this.

It was worth putting on a notecard on my desk.

What if your blog encourages even ONE person in some way, or teaches someone something or just makes someone smile?

Here are just a few that inspire me.

BooMama.net. She’s been blogging for over 10 years (she’s my blogging hero). She loves Jesus and every time I read her blog, I smile.

She’s extraordinary.

This adorable thing just started her own blog called “the girl with the curly hair.” She has a fresh and honest message for young girls.

She’s extraordinary.

And then there’s this one. She’s bold and so funny and share’s her faith in every blog. A VERY BASIK LIFE.

She’s extraordinary.

Lady K Blog is a fashion blog I really enjoy because not only is she super stylish, but she has an incredible heart too.

She’s also extraordinary.

So why do you blog?

HEY BLOGGER.  Just so you know……YOU ARE AMAZING!

Is your blog your outlet? Your special place? Your window into a world of thoughts and ideas to share?

Then keep on keeping on.

And whatever you do in life  ~ BE FABULOUS, BE INSPIRED & BE YOU ~

Because when you are, YOU SHOW THE WORLD HOW YOU TOO ARE EXTRAORDINARY.
