It’s Tuesday, and that means Colleen’s Tanka Challenge! Of course, just providing a couple of words would be far too simple, so we have two words, yes, but we can’t use them! Only synonyms allowed!

5 Reasons Why 𝑅𝑒𝒶𝓁 Bloggers Blog, And 5 Reasons Why 𝐼 Blog

There are a lot of us bloggers out there in this blogosphere… around twenteen gazillion, the last time they were counted. (Early Years teacher speak there for numbers, I’m allowed!)

But why do we blog?

I’ll give you five reasons why many bloggers blog.

  1. Instant fame through viral posts.
  2. To make money. (Not easy!)
  3. To sell their books or products.
  4. To give advice on various issues out there.
  5. To rant – and I mean really rant!

But that’s not the case for a lot of people.

I know that list is nowhere near the reason I blog.


I’ll give you five reasons why I am sat here in this blogosphere, and I’m willing to bet there are are a good few of you who could join me in some, if not all, of my reasons!

  1. I talk. A lot. And there isn’t always anyone available to listen, so instead of spouting off to the nearest ear, I can type, and type fast, so I can get the verbal diarrhoea out in written form instead!
  2. I’m a people person, but I don’t always have the time to go out socially with my physical friends, so I get to hang out with my blog pals and Blogily whenever I want, and am able.
  3. I get to stretch my creativity with the umpteen challenges I take part in, and I’m also able to learn so much from the posts I read.
  4. It helps me organise my thoughts when I am confused. Seriously, you don’t know the amount of times comments on here have really helped me in life – so thank you.
  5. I just love it. My own space on the Interweb… where I can always be me.

You see, my blog is not my business, it’s my wonderfully therapeutic pastime.

And there’s a chance that in the not too distant future, all I have built up on here will help me launch that danged book of mine, but until then, I’m happy for it to be a place to hang out, to chill, to relax, to put the world to rights – oh, and to share cute cat pics too!

So tell me… why do you blog?
