Dr. Tanya brings us her new style Blogging Insights. Her quote today is from Margaret Atwood.
Dr. Tanya asks: Who do you write for? Yourself, your readers, or posterity? I would love to know.
I write for myself. I started writing on a blog for my mental health. I continued because I like the opportunity to use my brain. I wrote for a long time with no responses, no likes, no comments. It didn’t matter. I was getting healthy.
I write now because I really enjoy the community. I like to respond to prompts that make me think. I probably use them as a crutch in some ways. They are an automatic focus. When I have the time and energy, I really enjoy adding prompts from different blogs. Those stretch my blogging muscles.
I am thoroughly enjoying the Thursday blogging prompt Maggie and I are sharing. I appreciate the work that others put into their prompts much more now.
Who knows if down the road, I will feel differently. Right now, it is good for me, it brings me happiness, and I like my fellow bloggers.
