Top 5 Tuesday- blogilicious

The Top 5 Reasons that I blog...

  1. The whole "It takes a village" aspect. Women thrive on sharing stories with other women and aside from family (I rarely get to see), and people that I know through work, I really don't have anyone to do that with. Since I am a teacher at Ciara's preschool I have to maintain a professional relationship with all of the women I meet through her. Blogging satisfies this need very well for the moment.
  2. The feedback from other people tends to make me feel damn good about myself.
  3. It's the best creative outlet that I've found so far.
  4. I learn SO much from everyone else, and I really like to learn new things.
  5. It is the one and only thing in my life that is totally mine. It's ALL about me. No one nags me about it, nobody tells me what to do or how to do it (unless I ask), I don't have to delegate to other people or explain how I want things done, I can say or do whatever I want. Period. It's FABULOUS.
Those are my reasons...what are yours? Scoot on over to Supernanny Where Are You? and join in the fun! See you there.

I am so glad you blog Shannon. I love your reasons. I am constantly telling people "it takes a village," usually when I need one of my friends to watch the boys for a bit. I also love that I can do whatever I want, and I am never wrong, sometimes misunderstood, but not wrong.

Oh, I just love it. I suppose all of our reasons will be somewhat similar, I am interested to see everyone's answers though.

Thanks for stopping by.

I put the thing about the creative outlet on my list too. Now that I'm reading your list I see so many others that I didn't think of. This is a fun topic!

I love your blog. And I love how open and honest you are about things.
I love your reasons for blogging. I think the sense of cammeraderie in the community is one of my strongest reasons (well, that and I WRITE!) that I keep doing this, despite the lack of readers/comments, etc.

BTW, how has the reaction been since going public with the blog?

What a great list! It IS the one place of our own that no one nags us about or can tell us what to do with (of course, unless we ask, as you pointed out!).

Your love of blogging clearly shows, friend!

Shannon said...

Great list, Shannon!!! I agree with you too, it is such an amazing creative outlet b/c you can do whatever you want. And thanks for the award, you sweat pea, I really appreciate it. Very thoughtful of you to give an award to a blog that was dead for over two weeks ;-) Glad to be back though!!!!
