Cris asks, "Why do you Blog?"
- I have a website, but I like the ability to express myself instantly and spontaneously. With the website I need to send it to the web editor. Not only did I have to write it, but I had to explain how to lay it out. I also wanted to be more personal and passionate about my subjects than the practice website accommodates for (and I can do this without additional business cost).
- I wanted to let everyone know I have a new book and make announcements about related activities.
- Creating a blog gave me something constructive to do while waiting what seemed likes month for the printer to get the book set.
- I like writing daily. I like sharing what I am learning. A blog keeps my creativity and grammar sharp.
- A more efficient way to keep up with friends and family. Ironically, I have made new relationships. I don't know that the blog influenced existing friendships and daily contacts much. I need a lot of socialization and interaction. A blog allows me to get that interaction when I have small chunks of time. It will be "here" for you without clogging your inbox whenever you have a chance to visit and read and what's on my mind.
- I found a blog to keep me very accountable. I have high standards and I achieve a lot by setting goals, writing about them and finding resources and wisdom amongst other bloggers. I feel in control of some of my more difficult goals.
- Now that I have an established blog, I like that I can refer clientele to it for further information or reinforcement.
- A sequel to Permission to Mother may unfold from amongst all my blog posts.
I enjoy my blog and plan to keep it up!
