So then today, I thought about why I blog. I came up with several ideas right away-- I like to write. Writing my blog each evening gives me the daily discipline in writing. I like to journal my family's history. Keeping up with my blog is a way to keep up with family and friends across the country. Writing my blog has allowed me new friendships that I cherish and love. I guess lately I've been feeling like my voice in this world of blogging is so small and insignificant that when I sat down last night to write and nothing came, I just thought who cares....so I don't write for a day. No one will miss me (please don't think I'm begging for people to tell me how great I am, I promise I'm not).
The funny thing was, I missed you all! I missed being a part of this wonderful world where we can share our joys and sorrows together through writing. I missed being part of the inspiration I find daily through your comments and your own blogs! I think writing is incredibly powerful and I missed being connected to that.
Now you know where I was yesterday. I was in the middle of a good case of writer's block mixed together with a little self-pity. Not a good place to be. Today I felt refreshed and ready to put my fingers on the keyboard and keep writing.
