Why I blog

I’ve been tagged by Salman Siddiqui of CompuWorld to share five reasons why I blog. I did this a month ago at work, but as I think about it, I guess there’s at least one reason that’s different for my personal blogging.

So, five reasons why I blog:

  • I want to make a record of my life.
  • I want to “suss out” motherhood. I know I can’t do this completely (probably ever), but blogging helps me to compose my thoughts, distill my feelings and try to bring more meaning to my life.
  • I want to help myself and other mothers find fulfillment through motherhood. Big reason.
  • I like connecting with others (especially mothers). Whether for interviews or just chatting on blog comments or e-mail, I’ve been surprised how many really nice people this blog has brought me into contact with! Totally wasn’t expecting that—strange, I probably should have…
  • Obligatory Unusual Reason: I’m a total grammar/spelling/punctuation Nazi. It absolutely drives me crazy to see “it’s” when it should be “its.” If I blog, I get to make sure that that doesn’t happen (as often). (This is the only one I carried over from work.)

Since I already tagged five people in my post at work, I think I’ll just tag anyone who reads this. Feel free to respond in the comments (don’t forget the comments contest this week!) or respond on your own blog and leave a track- or pingback.

    what the heck does “suss out” mean?

    can you win your own contest when you comment on your own blog? If so, that would be great.

    Sounds like all good reasons to me!
