My next post for Blue Star Families is about why I blog.
I had to think about this one for a while.
I think I have a couple of reasons why I blog. I started Julie the Army Wife (the blog I had before this one) during our 2nd deployment. It was hard and I figured there were other people out there just like me. I knew there were other wives out there trying to get through each day. At the time I had felt like I had gone through a lot of Military stress in the few years we had been a Military family. I knew that if I blogged about what I was going through it would make me feel better and help someone else not feel so alone.
It is now almost four years later and I think I blog for the exact same reasons. This deployment has been so stressful already and I need a place to talk about it. I need a place to post about what it is like. I also hope that if there are others out there that might feel alone, sad or upset about what they are going through they can read my posts and won’t feel so lonely anymore.
I also like to blog to share things in my life with others. This is why there are posts about my garden or trips that I take. I like to look back on those posts as a reminder of that time in my life.
Blogging for me is defiantly an outlet. I enjoy it and I enjoy where blogging has taken me. I have also enjoyed all the people I have met because I am a blogger. It has helped me not feel so alone in my circumstances. I plan to blog as long as I am able to. Whether it be about Military life or something completely different.
If you are a blogger, why do you blog?
