Why I Blog

Hola! The last few days thoughts have been popping up in my head as I'm working my 9-5, "Why do I Blog?" Now I am not a writer by trade, but a few years back I wanted to pursue a career in Public Relations and I knew PR professionals do some writing and I wanted to to brush up on my writing and prepare myself for what was to come(writing)...kind of like being a few steps ahead of myself.

Here I am 5 years later from that thought and still not working in the Public Relations field, but I am still blogging. Why? I actually really come to enjoy blogging. Now my blog is not as big as other blogs-yet, but that is ok; my blog is my baby. 

Here are a few other reasons why I like to blog:

  1. It's free therapy. You can write until your heart is content 
  2. I have met, interacted and became friends with some great bloggers
  3. Great opportunities can come from blogging....i.e working with brands, collaborating with other bloggers etc...
  4. It's slowly helping me come out of my comfort zone
  5. Reading comments left by my readers
Looks like I will be blogging for a little while longer.

If you are a blogger, why do you blog? If you are not a blogger have you ever considered blogging?


  1. good question. I've been asking myself that lately. I just enjoy sharing what I know with the world, but I also like to interact with people from all over the world and all walks of life. But also I hope to someday have my blog really grow and tie it into my career.

  2. Great reasons. I recently had to get back to my original point of starting a blog self expression and helping others. Its easy to start trying to make it big and make money from blogging. I remembered that isn't why I started, if I make money along the way great if not thats cool too. I love to write, I always have so that is what I will keep doing, glad you are too!

  3. I started blogging because I'd lost my voice. Becoming a stay at home mom is a true blessing but it can also be isolating and stifling. I needed a form of self expression and an outlet that could remind me of the girl I used to be. Lol. I also needed an inexpensive way to market myself as a professional makeup artist.

  4. Why do I blog??? I enjoy writing!! Honestly. This is also a form of self expression for me. I don't really get the opportunity to connect with as many people as I would like to throughout the day, so I decided to start generally writing about average things that go on in life and share my thoughts with the world.
