In my AP English class, I’ve turned my blog into my passion project for the year so I could really give it a push in the right direction. It’s been about 2-3 months and I’ve had time to really think about why I blog.
Is it for the money?
Is it for the views?
Is it for the recognition or acknowledgement?
For me, I’ve decided it boils down to me having ideas and wanting someone searching for a similar idea to have a place to go to. I also want to spread my weird freaking ideas with people who are willing to read them. Sure, it would be nice to have a giant audience. The more people I can reach out to, the better.
But whether it be 2 views, or 2 thousand views, it always puts a little smile on my face to see that someone took time to read what I wrote. And that is my greatest motivation.
So tell me. What is your reason to blog?
