This post is part of the Green Moms Carnival, hosted this month by Karen at Best of Mother Earth. Tune into Best of Mother Earth on Valentine’s Day to see how green moms from all over the blogosphere weigh in on Karen’s prompt: just for the “heart” of it, why are we doing what we do and to say so in 250 words.
I recently ran into a friend that I haven’t seen in a while. We spent a few minutes catching up and during our conversation she shared with me how much she loved my blog and that it has really helped her. This is why I blog.
I blog to:
learn. I learn so much from others through my research and from all the thought provoking comments and emails.
share. A blog is the perfect outlet for sharing with others, with the hope that they will share too.
connect. Blogging allows for a connection with an ever-growing fabulous community of like-minded men and women, all on a journey to make the world a better place.
experiment. Blogging is forgiving and allows for mistakes. It is in essence an unfinished work-in-progress that tolerates experimentation and change.
articulate a perspective. My blog is one of the essential ways I express how we can all make a difference through small, simple changes.
write. I have always loved to write. I wake up excited to go to work. My blogging journey has been filled with growth and fulfillment.
create. Piecing together each article with photos feels so creative-in a way that my past career never allowed. I like to make things look pretty.
live my passion.
This is why I blog.
