A Bloggers Musing

It's been almost I year since I started blogging, and believe it or not, I blogged every single day of it. Yes, every single day - a post a day. All the posts won't show because there was a point when I had to delete a lot of it after a heated argument with my husband about my blogging.

I have come a long way since my first post. Even hubby has finally accepted the fact that blogging is good for me...

What does blogging really do? why is it good for me? Friends, it's really hard to explain. Correction... it's not hard to explain, but I am not good at explaining it so I won't even try. Right now, at this very moment, I am typing just whatever comes to my mind. And it's good. It's good for me.

Honestly, I think my blogging has saved us a lot of unnecessary conflicts in our marriage. Again, don't ask me why because I won't be able to explain it. Maybe it's just the fact that it helped relieved a lot of my stress and anxieties... and ...

Blogging has introduced me to many blogger friends, and for that I am thankful.

Lately I have been feeling the need to return to my private journal writing. Not that I will abandon this blog (heck, no, I will not abandon this blog). It's just that there are some intimate and sensitive stuff happening in my life that I would rather not expose to the world. When I made the decision to put ads in my blog for some fun money, I know that I had to exert some effort in trying to increase the readership of this blog. Not that I will change my format just to gain more readers... because I blog for myself, for introspection, and I will not sacrifice that for increase in traffic. But on the other hand, I am trying to think of ways to promote this blog, and the more readers, the less private it becomes.

Blogging ... how does it really help? I still couldn't come up with a clear answer. Hey, it's 4:37 in the morning and most of the gray matters in my brain are still asleep....

I enjoy blogging. I really do. and I hope you guys enjoy reading it too.

It's Saturday morning, I am going back to bed.

Enjoy your weekend - I will :)

I blog because of need. My obsessive-compulsive I-remember-all-the-wrong-things-and-my-mind-is crammed-full cranium needs an outlet. I think, rehash, and over-think. Thus, writing is a release and even a healing.

I'm with ya, young lady. Blog away!

I had someone ask me if I blog about EVERYTHING. I just laughed.

My husband would lose his job if I did! LOLOL
