I think your reason for blogging is a really therapeutic one! To get your voice out there. I love that about bloggers — that they seem to normally be happy to share and share opinions, too. It’s something that allows you to get personal and everything & I always enjoyed connecting with those kinds of bloggers, too.
I began 4 years ago, mostly because at the time, I was taking classes for college credits in writing and among the materials I had, blogging was mentioned as a great way to get your writing work out there without having to tailor every piece to a specific markets requirements. It paid off for me bigger than anything and even exposed me to other amazing jobs and opportunities that are very rare! Love blogging!
