why do I blog

I had this thought running around in my head lately, esp after a strange comment on my facebook page that was said in remark to what I thought was just a giggle between cousins.

I was pretty much accused of being "sad and having no life" because I blog etc. so I thought about this over night, didnt write any comment back on the facebook comment and decided that I would write down why I blog......

So here it is.... I blog because its healthy for me.... yes its healthy lol. I find it a really good way to get thoughts out of my head and to understand my thoughts in a somewhat clearer way.

I also do it because I enjoy it, I love reading the comments, I love feeling that maybe some of what I have written will connect with somebody else and make them smile or think about an issue differently. I enjoy it.

I also find it a good way to stop thoughts from over running my head, with having dealt with depression and anxiety I find this a good release that doesnt harm anybody that I live with, it enables me to get stuff sorted with out loading it onto those that I love, sometimes stupid little things will really annoy me so writing them down is better in some contexts than getting all pissy with Ben over it.

I do have a life, its very busy with three kids and a husband who I care and look after, so if blogging works as a release for me then bugger it I am going to be "sad" and enjoy blogging...

So yep I am a blogger and guess what i feel fine about it.

Hey remember all those people at high school that told other people they were 'sad' or 'losers' because of what they did, or didn't wear, or said at lunchtime?
Yeah, they all work at Pak n' Save in Invercargill now and have three children to different fathers.

My point is essentially, do what you want because the people that try and dictate what's 'cool' or what makes your life worthwhile usually turn out not to be worth listening to.

I like your blog and I like writing me own. Rock on!

When people feel the need to make comments like that, it reflects badly on them, not you ... like they're mentally trapped in fourth form or something. Pay no mind.

thanks guys... Anna.. you are the anna in the previous post, i thought you were so neat when we were at Verdon.

And Emma, thanks too.

I guess part of the problem is that the competition between this cousin and I was not of our own doing, and is still continuing even though i just want to move on.

i will keep blogging, I am a geek and I like it lol

Each to their own, no need to get bothered by anyone else's comments.

Blogs are great for sharing and staying in contact with the wider world beyond those we can easily meet or telephone regularly.

I read a load of blogs fairly often, only some are personal, but in all cases they serve their purpose.
