Wednesday was my one year blogging anniversary.
I started out blogging in response to all the blogs I read that inspired, interested and encouraged me. I wanted to join the fun. Plus, since, at the time, we were in the middle of a big life change (i.e. - moving to New York), it seemed like a good time to start documenting life.
However, one year later, I find myself continuing to blog for different reasons. I blog as a creative outlet and way to challenge myself. Blogging keeps me brainstorming about different ways to capture life, looking at the world in new ways and trying a variety of recipes. It pushes me to be a better writer, photographer, cook and person.
I still have a lot of unanswered questions:
1. How do I balance blogging and real life?
2. How much information is too much information?
3. How do I blog authentically and still value my and my loved ones' privacy?
4. How can I encourage others as I have been encouraged?
I'm curious about what I'll think about blogging in one more year. I'm also curious about what other bloggers think. Why do you blog?* What questions do you still wrestle with about blogging?
*As you might guess, I love reading the "about" section of blogs.
