I Love Blogging


I have a confession to make. When I started my WordPress blog in 2019, I had no clue about what constituted a good blog. In fact, I would go as far as to say, someone in the blogging universe should have confiscated my keyboard or canceled my WordPress membership. I only ventured into the blogger world because someone told me I should write a blog to attract people to my work. How dumb is that? The only reason a person should start a blog is that they enjoy blogs and want to jump into the fun. Once I discovered other bloggers, I understood why people put so much time and energy into creating their posts. I have a second confession to make. I love blogging.

The reasons I love blogging

  1. Firstly, I love blogging because of the other bloggers I find on WordPress. This social media community is a fantastic group of people. I have learned so much from reading their posts. The poetry I’ve discovered brightens my day, even if the subject matter is a little dark. These verses give me a glimpse into the complexity of the human spirit. I discover I’m truly not alone.
  2. Secondly, blogging gives me a creative outlet. I concluded a year ago that I had a massive body of work. The problem being I need to get all these books I’ve written into some order so they can be published. This project will require a great deal of editing. Doing blogs gives me the ability to write fresh stuff.
  3. Thirdly, I tend to edit something to death before share it with anyone. I challenged myself to do a daily blog post in 2021. This practice forces me to catch the idea, let it rest a day, read over it, edit, and post. It gives me a deadline of sorts.
  4. Fourthly, I feel in love with blogging because it is so much fun.

In conclusion

I invite you to stop by and check out my posts. I am having so much fun studying the different forms of poetry and posting my meager offering as they come to me. I try to write in a different style every month. Rooster and I have still managed a few adventures, even in the pandemic. I’m also letting readers into my world as I undergo knee replacement surgery. My experience might come in useful to people facing a similar surgery. Getting old isn’t for wimps. I love blogging because it has opened a whole new world for me.

  1. It’s always fun to read your poems, and thanks for sharing almost the same reasons why we all love blogging. As they say, you are as young as you think!

  2. I started my blog 13 years ago when someone told me I needed more of an online presence. Although that’s no longer the reason, I still enjoy throwing my words out there and seeing what takes place.
