I just reached 1K followers mark on Instagram, and I am so overwhelmed with the love and affection I have received from all of you in a span of just a few months. I want to thank each one of you for taking out time from your busy life to be here and read my posts. And giving me your honest feedback. I promise to write from my soul. I was suddenly struck with a thought on what prompted me to start blogging and how come it took so much time to open myself up.
Writing keeps me sane
I am a very expressive person. My mind is always full of thoughts and I need a way to vent it out. I always maintained a diary since my childhood days. I remember, sometimes after a fight with mom, instead of talking to her and sharing my thoughts, I would lock myself and write while tears dropped from my eyes. And now when my life has taken a major turn after having a baby, I sometimes really need that ‘me’ time to write my thoughts down, and it really helps me to get going.
Throughout my pregnancy, I was quite up to date with relevant information about the development of the baby week-wise. There was too much information on few topics, and on the other hand some of the relevant topics were literally untouched. For the latter, I used to check with my pregnant friends or the ones who recently delivered. That is why I made up my mind to share my first hand experience related to pregnancy and baby care which would help a lot of expectant mothers. And now when I receive personal messages from these moms thanking me for sharing these posts, I feel ecstatic that I have been able to help others.
To live an intentional life
When I started blogging about my life and my thoughts, I started thinking more intentionally about who I am and how my life is shaping. This has helped me grow as an individual , as a mommy and a wife.
To become a better writer
I always knew I was a good writer, but I needed to work upon some of the spheres of writing. Now, after writing for two months I feel I can express myself better.
The Rush after reading positive feedback
Every time someone tells me that they were touched by what I wrote, it gives me a rush and it encourages me to write better posts and be consistent. Writing is my happy place, and I if I could inspire one person from my journey, I will take it as an accomplishment.
I’d be interested to hear about your motivations to start blogging? and have your motivations changed with the course of time?
