I do most of my best thinking – in the shower. While massaging in the shampoo the other day I was thinking about blogging.
Why I write.
What the future might hold.
I thought about “likes” and “comments” and “followers.” I thought about how I would love to know if what I write amuses or touches anyone and, if so, what was it? I considered how important (or unimportant) the knowledge of these things were to my continued blogging – or writing in general.
By the time I rinsed off I had come to these 3 conclusions:
However, I feel like this will be a subject that I need to revisit. Quite often.
At least I’ll be really clean.
I am curious though, Writers/Bloggers: What motivates you to write and specifically, keep on writing?
I don’t blog because I’m a writer. I blog because I’m a communicator. This doesn’t mean I’m a talker, although I do talk, just not excessively. In all honesty, I do talk excessively – in my head. That’s why I blog.
You know that person who lives in your neighborhood that walks around talking to themselves? I know you have one, every neighborhood has one.
My overactive mind thinks in blog posts and Facebook statuses and needs an outlet. In reality, I’m just a hair’s breadth away from becoming my neighborhood’s next Talker Walker.
The above picture is of an upcoming blog post scribbled on an article from DivorceCare about Surviving the Holidays. I wrote it on the only piece of paper I could find while vacuuming. I generally have a scrap of paper in my pocket at all times in case of brain overflow.
