Have you ever kept a daily journal of thoughts that followed you through the day? Well, I guess keeping a blog is very similar to that. Although, I have to admit, I will probably hold back my inner most demons since this blog is open to the public!
Some of my best ideas have come from writing down my thoughts and developing them further. Whether its telling a story, or making a business plan, it’s always a good idea to jot them down on paper (or in a blog, in this case). I’ve always found this type of brainstorming very therapeutic and organizational, even when it just starts with writing individual words.
At times those words may start in anger. That’s where the edit button comes in handy! An idea that might start with anger, can be developed and edited into a positive. Deleting the occasional F-Bomb certainly doesn’t hurt the cause. Of course, reading whats written out loud is a great way to make sure what the writer is trying to say makes sense. It’s also a great way to catch grammatical errors. In this way, I find that blogging not only helps strengthen my writing skills, but it is also very therapeutic to my daily thought process. Take those negatives, and drown them out with positive. The more positive you get in life, the better life you live… am I wrong? 🙂
So… should I blog? Of course I should! Even if its about silly subjects, like, blogging.
