What is a blog?
To me, a blog is like a diary. Or, at least that’s what I use it as. I am not the most creative nor grammatically correct writer in the entire world, so I refer to my blog to release some thoughts or ideas. I don’t have to be formal or professional, I just get to be me.
A blog is like an online journal, only the entire internet population has access to it… if you want them to, of course. It’s available for you to write about what you want, when you want and publish when you want. I enjoy blogs because you are not forcing others to read it, such as a post or rant on Facebook. If someone really wants to read about what you have wrote, they can open it and read.
I began writing blogs when I was a freshman in college and I think it is really cool to see how much I have grown as a person since then. I find that this time of our lives is the time where we find ourselves the most, learn about life and just experience the most change, so I love to be able to write about it and potentially relate to others out there reading my posts.
I did have one really popular blog a few years ago that was viewed by half a million people, and it was really eye-opening for me to see other’s responses to it. I even had a guy write a letter to me from Iowa, sent to Texas Tech University. With such a large response rate, I did get a few negative comments from it and it did make me step back a second and realize that anything that has potential of reaching a large audience will always have a few negative response rates. But, I decided to not let it get me down and continue blogging because it’s what I love to do.
I’ve never really been known for anything, but I was the first from my hometown area to really start actively blogging and so it kind of became “my thing.” I have blogged ever since.
So, for me, blogging is my diary. If you enjoy my blog or have any requests of future blogs, please comment below! I would love to hear from my viewers.
