The question has been asked, 'Why I Blog"
And what made me choose this arena to blog in...
I came to blogging quite reluctantly...
I was in a few literary groups and found myself enjoying that,
But I only joined in discussions if a topic touched me,
And when I did if it got dramatic or negative, I was quiet from that point on...
I don't do drama...life is too short, especially to work up over opinions....
After being encouraged to blog,
Many seemed to feel I had something to say...Bless you all...
I tried a few places...
But those forums, where it was all about 'friendships' (giggling)
And who could outblog whom...became passe' for me quickly....
Then one day I was talking to a friend at work...
And talking to a friend online,
I had written a piece about jealousy and they both thought I should share it with the masses,
So I reasearched blogs,
And discovered the eblogger worked for me,
It was user friendly,
You could set it up so people could comment if they chose or not if they chose,
Immediately I started gettting responses,
Not so much on the site but in the form of emails to me...
I loved that...
And a side benefit was that those who enjoyed what I blogged about,
Actually started purchasing my work,
And recommending it to others,
Though I rarely aggressively market my work on my blog,
Some even suggested I create a blog book,
Thanks Gwyneth for suggesting something that was marinating in my mind,
and it seemed to unleash others to ask, suggest, support the same thing,
So at the end of the day,
I blog as a form of self-expression,
In an environment that allows participation,
But respects those who choose not to...
Because a part of my ministry,
Is to put out there in written form those things,
That can hopefully be of some benefit to someone,
While being a form of therapy for me...
While doing one of the things I Love Most...
Love and Blessings,
Angelia Vernon Menchan
