One reason I blog

“For good or ill, most committed bloggers live with the constant question in their mind: Is this bloggable? This could become a neurosis, but I’ll put a positive spin on it: It nurtures a habit of looking for insight and wisdom and value in every situation, no matter how mundane.

If you live life looking for what is worthwhile in every little thing, you will see more of what God has to teach you…you will find that the new things you’ve seen and learned enrich far more of your life than just your blog.”

Thank you, Abraham Piper, for putting a positive spin on it.  I get laughed at often for my frequent statement that, “I should blog about that!” and still keep making it.  It’s a lot of fun for the teacher in me to share the random, fun, and delightful things that surround me.  Beyond that, I have become more aware of those things since I started blogging, and I like that.

 Another reason I blog: to procrastinate.  There’s no greatness or joy in that, though, so 2 sentences is all it gets.

  1. no joke, you write a book and be famous, and don’t forget your friends from AZ (well, technically i’m first from idaho, but also az)

  2. Reading your blog gives me a window into your life. I love it! And Angela~I think you could make a trip to the grocery store sound interesting. Keep Blogging!!!!

  3. it’s settled then. when do we start? right now or when we’re old and have more stubborn opinions about stuff? i’ve observed that age gives writing a mature quality, kinda like wine, but i guess i wouldn’t really know because i’ve never drank before.

  4. i enjoy your blogging=) i wish that i had the drive to do it.

    I think what i enjoy most about reading blogs is that while its not quite as personal as reading a journal or something of that nature, when a person takes the time to sit down and write, it allows them to reflect on themselves. so an experience that ends up written down in a blog, while it may or may not be entertaining in and of itself, can end up entertaining because when the time is taken to blog it, the reader gets to get a little glimpse into the thought process of the writer, even if its in as small a way as figuring out why they found that particular event blog worthy.

    As you can tell, i’m not an english major, and that probably made no sense. there you go, reason #2 i don’t blog.

  5. are you serious? i ALWAYS do this. i read the blog, then waited three or four days to comment, didnt bother to read it again, and ended up typing essentially the same conclusion as the blog, but worse. shoot=(

  6. i also like reading blogs, because checking back waiting to see if it was updated is like christmas morning. i refuse to mess around with rss junk for that reason and that reason alone.
