People blog for many reasons. Initially, I started my blog at the end of 2013 as a writer platform.

But over time, I realized that my blog has provided more than just a writer’s platform and it’s not about numbers. Blogging has served a different and deeper purpose. I can even say that it changed my outlook and lifestyle.

So if you are thinking of starting a blog, I highly recommend it. That is, if you blog for the right reasons.

If you’re starting a blog to get rich or even make a living, well, don’t count on it. It’s really hard to get a blog these days. In fact, after three years, I still haven’t made any money on my blog. By the way, don’t believe all the hype from people selling online courses trying to convince you that blogging is a great way to earn passive income. Make no mistake, writing and promoting a blog is tough work. There’s nothing passive about it.

In fact, it’s very easy to fail when you start a blog. As someone with a technical challenge, I needed to learn WordPress. Then, I spent a lot of time promoting my blog and trying to find an audience. Other things I don’t know. Like most bloggers, I quickly became obsessed – and depressed – with the number and how many Facebook visitors, subscribers, and followers I had on any given day. It turns out that building a readership for a blog takes a LOT of time, effort, and patience.

So Why Blog?

Some people may disagree with me, but I don’t think pc kart blogging is just about making money, starting a business, amassing a large following, pursuing fame, or trying to sell a book.

Blogging can serve as a creative channel for expressing ideas, thoughts, opinions, beliefs, and feelings. In addition, blogging provides a great opportunity to inspire and touch the lives of others in a positive way.

How Blogging Changed My Life

My blog has definitely seen me through a lot of ups and downs in the last few years. I write about happy moments like a trip to Chicago with my husband to celebrate our anniversary, days spent playing in the snow with my grandchildren, watching Paul McCartney and the Rolling Stones on Desert Trip, and short weekend trips with the kids. -my child. to San Francisco.

I have also poured out my heart while caring for my mother with Lewy Body dementia and writing about her death. I shared my anxiety when my father-in-law died of ovarian cancer and my son went through a painful divorce and custody battle that same year. (Ironically, shortly after I started blogging about happiness, I had the worst year of my life.)

Yes, I love reading, which provides a welcome respite from my troubles, but writing is my true escape, solution, and passion. When I write, I become very focused, my problems disappear for a moment, giving me a much needed rest. In fact, if you are a true writer, believe me, it is a lifelong addiction!

The process of putting my thoughts and feelings into writing has given me comfort and helped me relive happy times

When I write about my life, my blog helps me think about what is important to me and determine if my life is going in the right direction.

Since I can’t write about every event, idea, thought, and feeling, blogging provides a kind of filter, which explains my life. My blog has helped me understand what means the most to me. I discovered along the way that sometimes it’s the simplest moments that make me happy.

Embracing Creativity

As a professional writer, my blog gives me great creative freedom to express myself. Not to blow anyone’s balloons, but the writing seems more glamorous than reality. For the past 25 years, I have written articles on topics that magazines, newspapers, publishers, and clients choose for me.
