What is my reason to blog? by Barbara Edwards

Ancient Awakening

Why do I blog? I didn’t give it much thought when I started. Someone asked me to do a guest spot and I agreed. I was nervous. What do I say? Will I sound foolish? Will anyone like me enough to buy my book?
I totally missed the point. People visit blogs to get information. There is no way to know if what you share is what they are seeking.
To me blogging is very much like putting on a blindfold and walking through a fog, in the dark, hoping to find something that you can’t describe.
I decided that I would start a regular blog of my own and faithfully post three times a week. Hah.
Everyone told me to stick to a single subject, like writing, to draw a faithful following. Well, I can’t follow directions. My blog is all over the place. I blog about places I travel, Civil War reenactments, my writing, my family, psychic ability and anything else that I feel is important at the moment.
It must work. I have followers and regular visitors. I don’t blog three times a week. I don’t have the time if I want to stay with my first priority, my books.
I juggle a lot.
So to get back to my original question. Why?
I don’t know. For each blogger the reason is different. I blog the same way I talk. An idea pops into my head and I run with it.
Maybe you have a different reason. Please share it with me. I’d love to know.
