I can’t help but think of a post that I read recently on Zoot’s blog about posting with a purpose. In fact, that’s what’s been keeping my posts so far and few between. Why do I have a blog? What do I have to say that makes people want to stop and read? Honestly, there’s nothing that special about me. However, I think I have a blog more for myself.
I feel like my brain is always on the go. Seriously. I always want to talk or go through my thoughts and just share them. Sometimes I find myself having to explain how I got from one train of thought to another because often it leaves my students wondering how I got from Point A to Point Q.
I think I’ve found out why I desire to blog – I desire a community and environment where I can talk freely and openly and have a sense of community all behind a computer screen. In a world where time is limited and there aren’t enough hours in a day, blogging provides a type of safe haven where people can go and be social at any point of the day.
Does this make me sound like a hermit?
My goal is to start blogging with regularity. Honestly, I haven’t blogged in so long because I’ve been dealing with wondering what my blogging purpose is. WHY am I determined to write? Why don’t I just share everything that’s on my brain by speaking it to my husband….HAHA. Yeah right.
ANOTHER reason I have this blog – so I can vent because sometimes it’s really hard to tell your husband that his sister, who he is quite fond of, is quite possibly the MOST SELF-ABSORBED AND SLAP-WORTHY PERSON EVER. She infuriates me with just the smallest things. We do NOT get along – and I pride myself for being a pretty decent person who is cordial to even the crankiest of all angry teachers. I’ve tried being a friend; I’ve tried being a “sister”; I’ve tried EVERYTHING. Some people are not meant to acknowledge that other humans live outside of their “perfect” little bubble. I realize I’m being ugly. Maybe this is the place to stop for tonight.
