I have decided to participate in Blogging 201 to learn some great tips about making my blog a better, more user friendly and a space that is more representative of me.You may have noticed slight changes and tweaks to the appearance of my blog but I haven’t any plans to make any huge scary changes for the moment. What I have liked about my week so far is that it has encouraged me to think about my reasons for blogging and what I hope to gain from doing it.
Why do I blog?
I love to write. Blogging relaxes me. Recently, I have been taking great solace in and pride in my blog. I was reminded of the positive feelings that I had for so many years when I was a regular blogger. I am able to come to a space where I can totally be myself and share things that I enjoy on an open forum. The fact that anyone reads and likes my posts is a huge bonus but it is not the influencing factor. For the years that I have blogged, I have enjoyed the community aspect of the thing. The fact that I can connect with people all over the world and read about what motivates, excites and amuses YOU is amazing. I love reading your blogs and the things that I read inspire future posts and influence the way I see the world.
Blogs have impact and one of my goals is to be able to touch one person’s life in a genuine and positive way. To inspire one person. To change someone’s outlook on an issue. To enlighten someone.
So roll on week 2!
