Why do you do it?
I was recently asked why did i start my blog. Why did i open up and expose my views and thoughts and random musings to the world? Did i think that what i have to say is that important that it just had to have an audience? Am i trying to start some movement or something? So i gave the question some time and came up with this answer: I started a blog because i love to write. I love to dialouge with others. I like to vent. I like to spark conversation. I think better when i type. Yes, i think i am funny and witty and sassy and weird and a bit too much and at 30+ years old still trying to process what i expect of me, what others expect of me, and what God expects of me. Because unlike my closest of friends, i am an extrovert. Because i believe that if i reveal some of the closeted parts of me there will be no "gotcha"moment down the line. You really know what you are getting when you talk to me. I started this blog because Jill Nelson, Pearl Cleage, and Terry McMillan are my favorite writers. I started this blog to prove to myself that I am a good writer. I started this blog to share me with you. And even if no one reads it, my blog will show me how far i have to go, and just how far i've already come. So in a nutshell, that is why i started this blog.
