Why Blog?



For more than 20 years, I’ve put words into other people’s mouths. 
I’ve written, edited, designed, consulted, advised and implemented, while exceedingly comfortable in the shadows, public relations projects large and small. National print and television public service ad campaigns. Statements about the First Amendment, read on floor of the U.S. Senate. The remarks of senior executives of global Fortune 150 corporations.
Now, I blog. For me.

Laetitia Wajnapel started her blog, www.mademoisellerobot.com, four years ago as a personal project; the fashion blog draws more than 100,000 unique users a month. Laetitia tells of her journey to full-time blogger in the article, Who Are the Fashion Bloggers. She writes of the fulfillment and freedom blogging brings her. And, the access it grants us to the otherwise insular fashion industry.

Truly, the freedom to write when inspired about whatever captivates is liberating (except when I’m behind on writing for an online course, which is the case right now). I also like the openness blogging creates, in myself and into the hearts and minds of others. 
Coco Yogini is one of many outlets for creative expression and it’s one platform for the spontaneous digital images I take with the camera on my iPhone. I’ll confess to having started and abandoned two blogs before this one. Did you know most blogs wither after only four months? Both experiments brought me here.  
“I don't know where I will be in a few years, I don't know where blogging will go and where it will take me,” writes Laeititia. Honestly, neither do I. But, I do plan to enjoy every moment.
