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.
Thanks for sharing. Keep writing.
I think these are great reasons to start blogging. Working on something that is meaningful to you and expressing yourself gives you the passion to really create something that is potentially meaningful and helpful to others. Thanks for sharing!
