The Daydreamer Challenge Day 5 – Why Blog?


Today’s challenge…here…!

So, why do I blog?  I think I’ve touched on this a few times when answering questions on award tags, but essentially, I blog because I enjoy it!

A short 4 months ago a friend of mine started a blog, as a way to air her views about people in her life, and it was a way to vent her views and frustrations.  I read the first post and was so impressed, I went to like it, and as it was on WordPress, I needed to log in, or sign up.  Well, that was like a red rag to a bull for me! Sign up? Yes please! then there was the option to start a blog of my own… Why not I thought! But what was I going to blog about?

Ever since I was young, I have liked to write, and this seemed like a way to get back into it, and on the way see whether there was anything that I wrote that was actually read and appreciated by others!  I have written stories, and started what I would like to be proper books in the past but never been able to finish them. Plus I generally talk too much, and this was a way to control my verbal diarrhoea! I could spout out via my keyboard, and if someone wanted to read, they could, or else just scroll on!

Slowly I ventured through test posts, to a bit of fiction, poetry, memories, recipes, photos, my thoughts and opinions, day to day posts about my family and obviously Sonu Singh, the cat! Slowly things picked up and I got such wonderful feedback from those that had started to follow me, and it has made me feel like hey, I actually can write, and what I write does appeal to someone out there!

Back to some of my favourite posts… that’s a hard one, as I have written rather a lot!
Twelve Days Of Holidays Poetry
But You’re OK Opinions
Purrrrst Love Sonu Singh
32″ Waist Here I come! Opinions
The Coffee Shop Fiction

The following two are my own brand genre of fiction, Chick Pea Lit Curry, girlie fiction with an Indian Masala twist!
Nikki’s World Part 1
Nikki’s World Part 2

There are so many that I enjoyed writing, but these are a flavour of me, I guess!

What do I want to achieve from blogging?

I don’t think that there is anything I really wish to achieve, other than continue to develop my love of words… And if somewhere within that experience, someone out there feels I might have a talent, they can encourage me, and push me to do what I would love and that is to write full time! Other than that, if I entertain you, I am happy!

A question for my fellow bloggers…

Would you like one of your posts to go viral?

Ok, Adios Amigos! ‘Til tomorrow!

But I Smile Anyway...

    I would love one of my poems to go viral – but then I would probably regret it as I would have to try and live up to it afterwards!

    To answer your question, yes. Any of them. 😉 Haha! I have had a few Facebook and Google shares on both of my Direct Sales blogs…which was super kewl and motivating when that happened. Gah but the idea of going viral is also so incredibly intimidating, like all the sudden what you wrote is under a microscope being analyzed and judged by strangers…you just hoped you didn’t over look the wrong use of your or you’re. 😉
