Blogging for Blogging Sake

Me when I first started blogging.

When I first started blogging almost 10 years ago, I’m pretty sure I did it for narcissistic reasons.  Like a baby looking in the mirror for the first time I was enamored with my own reflections.  Constantly monitoring my readership and praying for someone to comment.  I found myself fishing for followers on other blogs, joining groups to get more readers and measuring my own worth based on my blog’s popularity.  It was not healthy.  So I stopped.

As you’ve probably noticed (actually you probably haven’t), this blog has been pretty inactive for a number of years.  There’s just a few posts here and there designed to inform people about what’s been going on in our lives.  And that, I believe, is the ultimate purpose of a healthy blog.


Some people blog for blogging sake, others for narcissistic reasons and still others for only God knows what.  As for me, I’ve set a goal this year to be a better communicator and I’ll be using this blog to do just that.  I hope that’s okay with you.  I hope it doesn’t hurt my readership.  I hope…  wait, who am I kidding?  I’m pretty much the only one that reads this blog anyway!  So let the communicating begin!
