I’ve been asking myself this question for a couple of years now. Before this question I asked myself a few others. Why Facebook? Why Instagram? Why Tweet? I now do all three (I’m still considering Pinterest :)). Call it giving in to peer pressure, conforming to what everyone else is doing, jumping on the social media bandwagon, or something else. But I did it. And I’m glad I did. I think I’ll be glad I started blogging too.
So why do it? Why blog when there are already thousands of other (and better) blogs out there? For one thing, I believe most everybody has something to say that can help somebody else in some way. I hope I fit in the “most everybody” group of people. Here are a few more reasons why I’m choosing to blog:
1. To connect with people.
2. To add value to people.
3. To share ideas and thoughts.
4. To challenge myself to learn and grow.
5. To start conversations that point people to Jesus.
What will I be blogging about? I’m glad you asked. Below are several categories I’m considering:
– Church and Faith
– Current Cultural Topics
– Belief and Doubt
– Personal Growth
– Other stuff that doesn’t fit neatly into a category
So there ya have it. Here’s to my first blog post explaining why I’m blogging. Exciting, huh? Ha. I have a lot to learn. And I’m still not sure about a lot of the ins and outs of blogging. But I know one thing for sure: if I waited until I had it all together I’d never get started. So I’m starting. It’s a little scary putting my ideas out there. But here we go. Looking forward to this blogging journey!
