Counting My Blessings…Ten Things I Love About Blogging

Written by Angela Atkinson

So, today I’ve decided to express my gratitude for the blogging platform that so many of us use. Here are ten reasons I LOVE to blog!

1. I can gratuitously publish pictures of myself, my children, or anything else I choose to–even if it’s a blurry cell phone picture. And, I can somehow justify it with the text I write. (BTW, these are the backs of my beautiful babies all three playing the piano together.)

2. Speaking of gratuitous, I can write whatever I want in a blog. No editors to please. I can overuse phrases if I want, use the words y’all and wanna, and I can even say LOL or 🙂 if I want. LOL! 🙂

3. I love to help people, so when someone comments or sends me an email saying that my post has helped them in some way, it makes my day!

4. It’s like free therapy. Seriously, sometimes blogging it out is all it takes to get a fresh perspective on a situation. (And y’all KNOW I love me some fresh perspective!)

5. I can showcase my fabulous personality. Yep, that’s right, I said it. LOL.

6. I’ve met some really cool people in the blog world. And some interesting ones. Sometimes, cool and interesting…and a few who have disturbed me beyond my wildest dreams. Haha.

7. You’d think that as a writer, the last thing I would do for relaxation is to…I dunno…write. But alas, folks, writing is like a drug for me. I love it, I hate it, I need it. So…blogging is sorta like my recreational drug. It’s fun, easy, and helps to take my mind off the serious stuff. 🙂

8. A blog is like a sandbox–you can play around with words until something comes of it. Or not. Or maybe it’s like a box of chocolates–you never know what you’re gonna get. Or both. I think both.

9. It’s a good place for announcements that matter to me but maybe not to the rest of the world. (Example, when I announced my ever-so-successful personal website launch. Yes, I know, you haven’t stopped clicking since I told you. LOL.)

10. People give my blog awards. Where else in the world do I get awards? (And no, I don’t count the third poopy diaper of the day as an award, contrary to Sophie’s insistence that it is.)

But seriously, above all, let me just say that I am grateful to have discovered blogging, lo those many years ago. And, my friends, I’m grateful for all of you.

So today’s challenge is simple. Look around and pick something you see/do/look at every day and decide what makes you grateful to have it in your life.
