Why I Blog

I have been wondering lately why I blog.  Actually, I have been struggling with that question since I first started blogging in October.  I initially started blogging because I had a dream and I thought it was a message straight from God.... could this be possible?  Yes.  Could it be possible that I dreampt about blogging because I spend so much of my day looking at other people's blogs?  Yes. 

Daily I wavier back and forth with these questions: To blog or not to blog?  Why do I blog? What do I  blog about?  Is it a waste of my time to blog?  Does anyone even read my blog? I know, exhausting right? Ugh...

Me, "borrowing" WIFI from the neighbor. 
So, to ease my pondering mind I decided to write out the reasons why I blog.  Then when my crazy mind starts going blog bonkers I can re-read my blog "mission".  This is what I have come up with so far...

I blog to write.  To write about my life, my marriage, my thoughts and my God.  To remember these things at the moment I am writing about them. I blog to share.  To share about my life, my marriage, my thoughts and my God.  To document the secrets and hardships I have learned about these things in the moment I am experiencing them. I blog to write, to remember, to share and document. 

Blogging while in Bend for New Years

I am blogging for me but I hope that as I grow and learn that some of you will come along on the journey with me.  Maybe a few will only stop by once.  Maybe a few will stop by often.  But, my hope is at whatever moment you drop in, you leave with something to write, remember, share or document! 

Blogging right now, 23:00(we use military time in our house).
Now, to figure out what to blog about next...


  1. What a great thought to share with the world.I think its great when people share why they blog.
