Blog Hobby

I think if you really enjoy doing something and you really get out of it what you put in...hmm....that you should carry on and enjoy yourself in the process.

Well that something for me...is blogging.

I guess I'm a little addicted to it.

Some might say I'm obsessed with it...hmm....

Especially my beloved husband and my mother....neither of whom understand blogging at all.

But because I thoroughly enjoy it....I shall carry on until the day arrives when I no longer get pleasure from hitting that "publish" button.

There would have been a time when I'd have listened to other people and taken their opinions on board;

hmmm....maybe even agreed with them when they classed me as an oddball who has 'no life'.

But now? Now I laugh at them and say "it's my life, deal with it."

I'd never disrespect my family of course but we all have to do something in our lives that we enjoy.

There are many people who's hobbies take them away from every day life....sometimes even causing a rift....but blogging isn't one of them.

The beauty of the blog is that one can switch it on and off whenever one feels like it.

Life isn't a bed of roses all the time....there will always be parts of our existence that we wish didn't happen....but in a blog we can talk about it.

People can advise us....make suggestions....lift our spirits and help us reach decisions.

Before blogging....I had to do all that myself.

Does blogging make us lazy in finding solutions to the problems we face?

I guess in some ways it probably does....but it's so nice to share our thoughts with others....to ask for help.

For me....it's one of the best feelings in the world to know that someone out there is going through the same as you....whether that be something good or bad.

It's a consolation that we're never alone. Blogging has taught me that.

It's shown me a world outside the little corner in which I live and it's made me realise that no matter what happens in life....there will always be someone who will understand.

  2. hmmm! but i wish there was one person who we cud speak the same thoughts in person and who cud do the same... but yes blogging is awesome... now that i have stopped chatting... which used to keep me going... i think its best to have a little wall around u... only letting those come in... who can encourage us support us enlighten us and improve us and keep all the other things in check.... and somehow with blogging its easier to see wat we want to see... and leave out the unnecessary and irrelevant stuff...!:)

  6. Blogging is just like writing a dairy, but in dairy we write things to show ourself what we know, in blogging we write what we want to conceal, but somehow that gets known between the lines.

  8. My husband also doesn't understand why I blog, he doesn't get the thrill of knowing someone out there is reading what you've written, you're experiences, and understands what you feel.

    I try to keep my personal blog positive. I get depressed when I write negative posts. I do like reading other peoples blogs, finding experiences similar to my own. It helps to know that there are others who have been through what I have, both positive and negative. Even though I don't have many real life friends here in PK, I am happy to find like minded people through blogging.
