Do you blog? Why not?

I am all about blogging. I may not be the most consistent and I certainly don’t have the most page views. Most of the time I sit down and type out some thoughts and hit post. That being said I think everyone to should blog or get their ideas out in an electronic format.

Here’s a couple of reasons why I feel this way.

  • Blogging allows you to get your ideas out of your head. Most people aren’t going to journal or write in a diary. But if you have a regular way to clear all the clutter out of your mind it can’t be a bad thing at all.

  • You have a story. Even if you think your thoughts are “foolish” or even trivial, someone may find your story interesting. I mean seriously, I write about how great a job I have, CrossFit, meal prep and bowties. If someone reads this blog, someone will read your blog about sea snails. But even it no one reads it, it’s your story and you’ll have somewhere to go back and look at…

  • Your  journey needs to be captured. If you lost a lot of weight. Discovered a new talent. Build something from ground up. Slowly watched something you thought that would last forever dissolve. No matter what it is your journey should be written down. Your story has to be told.

Blogging, CrossFit and Meal Prep came to me because someone else shared their stories and it clicked in my life. Now I can’t imagine how my life would be different without these. So your story is valuable to someone. Even if you want to guess blog here I will gladly post your story until you feel comfortable with your own writing. Let me know and if I can help you start your journey in writing I’ll do all I can.

  1. When I first started blogging I decided to remain anonymous because I was afraid of failure. I’m not the best writer, but I thought I would enjoy getting my ideas out there for people to see. I’m now taking some writing courses and gaining a little more confidence every day. You don’t have to be perfect, you just have to start. For me, the best part about blogging is learning from others. It opens up a whole new world you never knew existed!
