Whether we blog as a hobby, or blog to become rich and famous, we all had a life before the blog.
Until Davina Haisell of Shades of Crimson mentioned it, I had forgotten what I did with my time before I started blogging.
I remember spending a lot of time on the computer, but it was what I’d call “unproductive”. I played Spider Solitaire, manipulated photographs, searched Google for random articles of interest, clicked on links and ended up deep into the dark hole we call cyberspace.
When I look back, I realize I wasted a lot of time. Time I’ll never get back.
But that’s the past.
Now I blog.
Even though some say blogging is a waste of time, I don’t see it that way. With blogging we’re able to create an online personality, share that which we’ve experienced in life, make new friends, learn from others who have “been there” and practice our writing skills.
With blogging we can showcase our talents, advertise our wares, create a business and in the process build a foundation from with we can grow.
I see blogging as an activity which has endless possibilities.
Starting a blog is one of the best decisions I’ve made in a long time. It’s brought more joy into my life than I could have ever imagined.
For me, it’s truly a blessing.
How about you?
