Why Blog About Writing?

Recently, I was asked why my blog is aimed at writers, writing and readers. Good question. My answer was, "I don't know."

LOL. Sad, but true.

The truth is I love writing about anything & everything. There is so much that goes on either in my head or in my life that I'd love to share with the world, but most of it stays just with me.

Why? Here's my take on things: I have a family. I have a personal that needs to remain...well, personal! :) I don't think it's appropriate for strangers to know my daily routine or to find out the details of my life.

Don't get me wrong. I have an amazing partner who I could go on about for ages about how smart, beautiful, talented and wonderful she is. And no, I don't get paid for saying those things. They just happen to be true! LOL.

As much as I would love for the entire world to know how great she is, I do need to respect her privacy, and our privacy. I don't think it's a good idea. Romantic relationships are supposed to be private. I'm not going to risk what I have just to gain readers who are interested in our "alternative" family.

There is also a little one involved. I love that little girl, and I definitely do not want to do anything that could possibly jeopardize her in any way, shape or form. Except for maybe sharing the occasional moment she just makes you laugh your arse off when she says things like, "that's how I roll," or "Dude, I'm hungry!" LOL. Gotta love three year olds! :)

Plus, I write my blogs to help gain readership. Yes, I'll admit it. I'm a writer, and I want to reach as broad of an audience as I can.

I also have so many friends who are readers and writers, and we're all at different places and levels with our writing. I think it's a good idea to help contribute what I can. Granted, most of my blogs are generalized because everyone is in a different place, but what I discuss are good building blocks for every writer.

So there you have it. That's why I write about writing. Sound good?

Hope you all have a great day, and happy reading & writing! :)

Blogging is a bit of a balancing act, knowing what to share and what not to. But, I think you're heading your blog in a good direction...especialy this one:)

Since my wife's on Facebook, I'll say a few things about her in my blogs. But not much--for the same reasons you have. It's nobody's business.
