I have had the Charlie the Cavalier blog for almost 5 years now. Many changes have happened over those years. The main reason I blog is to share information with others to help them out. I want others to learn from my mistakes or to help them out with the gifts that I have been given.
The reason I thought of this post was from a video I added to youtube the other day. Here is the video below. The thing is I don’t like watching myself. I also don’t like to watch people watching me. So why do I continue to post videos on YouTube? I do it so others can learn. I know people learn in different ways. I don’t mind editing video so this is a preferred way to get information out there.
I also don’t like to edit my work (as you know). I don’t like to read what I write but I like to get information out there.
Now I that I am a Stay-At-Home Mom there are other reasons that I like to blog. I feel more connected to the world. I get to share my family with others who are far away. I am not getting free stuff which is curbing my online spending.
I think I got better at blogging from doing work for my masters and doctorate classes. Each week I would complete discussion questions. When there was gaps in classes I wanted to continue to write and respond to others.
The image on this post is my little girl. See she likes to mimic me. I usually am at my computer, with my phone, and my camera. I am pretty content with this. If I am not on vacation or hanging out with friends this is really where I prefer to be.
But the reason I started blogging is because I love to try new things online. Especially things that are free and help others learn or spread knowledge. This is why I also got into selling online books that became the 50 Things to Know book line. I have to admit I like the google ad and amazon associates income too.
Why do you blog? Do you need any help with blogging? Are you ready to start a blog?
