Why Do I Blog?
“I write to discover what I think.” Daniel Boorstin
Daniel Boorstin is one of the many authors I have admired over the years of my reading nonfiction and his quote above answers my question in the subtitle.
I have been blessed or obsessed with a thinking mind. I don’t seem to be able to stop thinking. I think about my thinking of course when I read and write. But I also think when I take walks in nature, when I nap and when I shower. Thank goodness I don’t think about my thinking when I play tennis or watch sports.
Because I get very little response and feedback from writing my blogs, I wonder why I keep blogging. Now I know. I have been able to say that I write my blogs for me. Now I no longer have to ask: Does anyone care if I am writing?” Because I care. I will continue to write to discover what I think, and maybe I will learn to also create what I think.
So here come more blogs, ready or not. I am on my discovery/creative journey.
