In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Million-Dollar Question.”
Why do I blog?
I have always loved to write. I have been writing since my early school years,and the passion for writing stuck with me into adulthood, I remember as a teenager,I would write random letters to a few of my friends,encouraging them and also sending prayers and affirmative words to each one of them. Only to find out that everything I had written to them was what they needed at that point in time. Oops I had no idea of the impact, I was just doing my thang!
I kept on doing it,and then came the social media ,so I would write on my wall on face book,everyweek I would send encouraging words /prayers, quotes to my whatsapp friends. Then last year one of my friends told me pointblank to start blogging .I didn’t know what that was,so I began my findings.
I stumbled on WordPress for the first time but had difficulties with usernames,passwords etcetera( trust me that can be frustrating sometimes).I tried and tried,to no avail…what the heck? I am not a “techie” .I gave up on WordPress,blogpost and all that……temporarily I guess.
By December 2014,I gave blogging a try again,and hurray!!,I finally got a grip of it ….at last! and then came the question of Identity and what I wanted to blog about. I am still in the process of Identity as I devote myself to the discipline of blogging on a regular basis.
I blog about Life generally as it unfolds to me as a Woman ,Wife and Mother( Though I am yet to start any conversation in these lines.
I blog because I believe that my experiences and happenstances in this journey can be of benefit to someone out there,somehow.
I blog because it is an avenue for me to put words to the many voices in my head.
I blog because it is part of my divine mandate in this earth realm and I am not trying to be religious about it. I believe I have been called to do these threed things in my life time- SING IT, SAY IT, WRITE IT.
As a student of leadership,I blog some of the leadership lessons i am learning at present, I blog about music and everything in between.
I blog because I am passionate about Impact and Influence on me as a person and on others as well.
I blog because it gives me the opportunity to know and learn from other people outside my comfort zone.
I blog because this blogosphere as become my new home and I have been thoroughly transformed in my thinking ,and writing because I came across all you beautiful bloggers from all over the world.
Now it is no longer a question of how many likes or follows I have. ( I used to be bothered about that :-).
I just want to be present here and play it by ear, as I am been guided to write.
