What do you love about blogging? How is it connected to your happiness?
Blogging makes me happy because it gives me an outlet. I can emote about things that I may not emote about to the check out lady at the grocery store. Why can't I just open up a word document and emote there, though? Why does it have to be blogging?
Because I might connect with people while emoting. And no matter how much I like to hide behind my books or computer, no matter how much I like to be home rather than out and about, I need affirmation from people. So emoting into a word document, while more satisfying because I would have to edit less, would be less satisfying because I'm not going to connect with anyone.
I really like some of the people I've met blogging - people who I would have never met through Facebook or in public. People I certainly wouldn't have met in a word document! For that reason, I am so happy I began blogging close to a year ago. I can't believe it's already been that long!
So what will I do for my one year Blogging-versary? Wait and see, wait and see. It's August 8th.
