Why do I have a blog?

blogging-15968_1280

Blogging is a simple thing – login to wordpress, write whatever your fingers feel like typing, then hit ‘publish’. Simple enough.

But when I’m confronted with the question of why I own this beautiful space for myself, I find myself racking my brains for a proper answer. I had no ‘goal’ or any specific thing to tell the world about while starting this blog. All I knew was that I had to have a blog. Just because.

I knew I needed a voice that could be shared with a few invisible, existent people. I knew I liked to get comments and opinions. I knew I had to start a blog, or that particular thing would be left un-ventured in my life.

I googled up about the best free blogging platform, and when I knew no coding is necessary for creating a blog, and as it sounded simple as a pie, I created one. There was no major reason for me to have started it.

But now, I feel thankful for the idea because I now have my own space to share poems, my general opinions, pieces of my writings and whatnot. Blogging can actually help people learn to write in a professional manner, though I have yet to learn writing so. Since this is a personal blog, I never felt the need to actually be very professional and all, but many people might.

So, if you ask me why I need a separate space for myself in the cyber-world, I’d say, “But that’s the coolest thing ever, so why not?”

Why not, indeed?

    Just like me, although much more eloquently put! 😀 I too have a blog because it seems to be The Thing To Have right now. I wish you luck!

      Haha, true. I learned this fact after I created this blog and got to know more of the blogosphere, though. People seem to also have another major reason (a few) – to make money! I wish I’d be able to do that, but I found out that it’s not possible for personal blogs like mine.

    Why not? Is the best question to ask 🙂
