(Q) Why did you start your Blog?
A. A friend of mine suggested in 2018 that I should start writing. I can’t remember what post on Facebook I had written but I do remember it not being her first time saying it. She said, multiple times, that I should write. So my first blog, A Patriot’s Garden, was started and it was all about gardening. (Thanks for the push Tina!)
Having a creative outlet that I can control is extremely important to me. I’ve noticed over the years, that I have been creative in many different ways. The problem has always been that I never really ever ‘sit still’ or focus on one creative outlet. I have so many!
(Q) Why didn’t you continue with the gardening blog?
A. Truth be told, I love gardening! However, I didn’t want to write about just gardening everyday. Flowers don’t grow like that folks. Although, I wish they did! lol
I found myself second guessing the desired content for my reading audience as well as my chosen blogging content. Even though I was speaking my Garden language, I found that other topics would be squeezed in there as well. For example, if I broke a nail while digging a hole for a new plant I would trail off subject about how I fixed that broken nail. Made perfectly good sense to me while typing but it was way off subject.
(Q) What do you hope to accomplish this time around?
A. My main goal this time is to enjoy blogging and to make it my soul purpose to keep a record of all the wonderful things that have happened and will in my life. My biggest fear is not being able to remember things in my old age.
I’m still young but it is still a fear nonetheless.
I don’t fear getting older, I fear loosing my memories.
So there you have it! I’d love to hear what you think about why I started and If you blog …What is your reason(s) for starting?!?
