I am a BLOGGER and loving it!heart

I remember some years back when I first heard the word “blog” (_not having a clue of what it was_ ) I thought it was the UGLIEST sounding word that I had ever heard.  The word sounded like a cross between  a gooey thick slimy substance and a sci-fi alien creature.  For the life of me I could not understand WHY ANYONE would want to do something called.... BLOG!

Well after a quick investigation and short talk with a FB friend that actually had the nerve to call herself a BLOGGER; I stepped into the light and my eyes were finally opened to the fantastic world of BLOGGING!

It’s been a few years since I created my first blog and quite frankly it didn’t start off feeling so liberating.  In fact, posting my first blog and sharing it publicly was a very uncomfortable and scary process for me.  I felt a myriad of emotions and had questions swirling in my mind from one end of the emotional spectrum to the other.  

After posting my first blog I remember thinking, “Should I have shared my thoughts in PUBLIC?  Why would anyone want to read something that I wrote? What will the people that know me think about my writing? What if some crazy internet stalker guy reads my email and makes it his mission to track me down in person?  Do you think... perhaps... Oprah will read it???

But how time changes things! I am the biggest BLOG fan ever.  Instead of feeling a sense of fear and insecurity in sharing my thoughts with the world, I now look forward to it. So I listed below four reasons why I think that ALL women should blog.

h3. Reason #1: We have something important to SAY !
As women, we are always on the front line of experiencing and seeing life in real time.  The female mind is filled with thoughts, ideas and opinions. That’s why I have never really understood why the political pundit shows, new casts and talk radio have been dominated by men.  Sisters, don’t we have something to say??!!

h3. Reason #2: Blogging Is Good For Your Health
While I don’t have any studies. research or data to support my opinion that blogging is good for a woman’s health; I can only personally attest that blogging has been a healthy, liberating, empowering and enjoyable experience for me. Certainly, this has impacted my emotional and physical health.  Instead of picking up those cookies for comfort, I pick up my Mac and start writing.happy

h3. Reason #3: Blogging Prevents You From Blowing a Fuse
Ladies, I am telling you this can prevent you from cussing’ someone out!  Just three weeks ago my teenage son made me so angry I felt like choking him—but ahhhhh—instead of inflicting violence on my beloved know-it-all kid... I wrote a blog.  I was able to refrain from unbecoming  and unhealthy behavior. It works I tell you! IT WORKS!happy

h3. Reason #4: Blogging Improves Your Sex Life
Okay I just threw that one in for good measure to check and see if you were still actually reading this blog.  But that is an interesting thought...I think that I am going to explore this topic a little further and let y‘all know the results!estatic  

Well those are a few reasons why I think ALL women should blog.  I am quite sure there are many others that I would love to hear from my fellow BLOGGER sisters out there.

NOTE:
I started out writing this blog with the intention of sharing a laundry list of 10 serious reasons on why women should blog . However, the added benefit and beauty about blogging is that it is my space to allow my creative mind to flow and take my writing where-ever it wants to go. Thanks for joining me on my blogging journey.  

Ladies, start BLOGGING and feel LIBERATED!heart
