Recently, I was asked this question, and it was one of the first time that I really had to put it into words. Let’s face it, I know why I started, but it was the first time someone asked, and I had to answer and explain why I started.
So, I wanted to take a minute to talk about my why. Why did I start this blog? Well, there are a few reasons why I started this blog.
Reason #1: A love for writing
Ever since I was a kid, I’ve always loved to write. It’s always been a way for me to express my thoughts, emotions, tell a story, or whatever else is inside of me. It’s a way for me to clearly express my thoughts.
Reason #2: Need to do something for me
At the time I started, I wasn’t working. My main focus was my kids. And I realized that I needed to do something for me. I needed something to focus my energy into, other than my kids. As much as I love my kids, I needed something for me. Something to do that didn’t involve them.
This was a good way to do that. It was something that made sense to me. It was local.
Reason #3: Get some information out there about ADHD and learn more about it.
This is another reason why I started blogging. I wanted to learn more about it for myself and share what I learn. I wanted to bring more awareness to ADHD. I feel that it’s important to put information out there for all of with ADHD and for those who has a loved one with it as well. Even if the individuals reading don’t fall in either categories and just read to learn, then hey great!
I wanted to put the information out there for anyone who wanted to read my post and hopefully learn a little something.
So, these are the reasons why I started blogging and why I continue to blog. I enjoy what I’m doing. I’ve enjoyed learning, sharing, writing, and being able to connect with other bloggers. I’ve enjoyed the journey.
I look forward to seeing where things go.
