Since I've started blogging, I've gathered a fair amount of readers (I get about 50 reads on an average post). This has really helped keep me accountable! Since I'm sharing a lot of what's going on my life and things that I want to change, having others who know what I'm going for has helped motivate me to change.
2. How to communicate.
If you go back and read some of my earlier posts. I was not a very good writer at all! I'd like to think that I've come a long way since then. Blogging has helped me organize my thoughts in a way I hadn't known possible. As I've said before, I am shy and slightly introverted, and I'm very good at speaking or communicating in person. Because of this, I don't have a lot of friends, so I don't really have a ton of people to talk to. Talking is one way to organize all the thoughts racing through the brain. Since I didn't have that, I had a tough time for a while. Writing a blog post every week has really helped me to comprehend and process what is going on in my life and what things need to change!
3. I am not alone!
Feeling alone is a really tough thing to go through. But through blogging and interaction with people who have read my blog, I have found out that I am definitely not alone! I've gotten a lot of encouraging comments from people who have said they struggle with the same thing, and that has really helped me!
4. I can have an impact!
No matter what I might have thought before, I can have an impact on others. That has been made clear to me many times throughout my time of blogging! Like I said in Reason #3, I've gotten lots of comments and messages from people who have gone or are still going through the same struggles, and often they will tell me how my post has helped them to see that THEY are not alone either. It's really cool to see the Holy Spirit speaking through me and helping me have an impact on the lives of others!
Blogging has definitely been quite a blessing to me. And it is really fun to do as well! I would definitely recommend it to any and all of you who want to try! If you have an interest in blogging or would like to start one, let me know and I'll do my best to help you out! Or, if you already have one, leave a link in the comments so I can check it out!
