I can’t say that I started blogging for all of these reasons 14 years ago, or that I continued for all of these reasons. But, a couple of them were true then, and remain true today.
I blog to share my knowledge and my passions, to connect with other people, whether it be professionally here, or to talk about sports, or to remind child abuse survivors that they aren’t alone. The last 14 years have helped introduce me to a whole bunch of people who I wouldn’t know had I not started a blog, and given me a creative outlet for the things I want to share. I know that, at least on occasion, I write something the other people find useful, which is cool.
I’ve never done it to make money, but it’s still managed to enrich my life and been worth all the time and effort!
