#Back2Blogging Event- Day 5

Wow I made it, our last day of the #Back2Blogging challenge!  Since this past Monday through today we were to write posts according to the daily prompts.  You can view the prompts on my first post here.  This has truly pushed me to post daily on my blog and hopefully improve my posts too.  Thank you The SITS Girls, for this  #Back2Blogging Event!

As our last assignment to jump start our return to blogging, I am to write about what blogging means to me. Why do I blog? What purpose does it serve me and how have I benefited from sharing a piece of myself online this way?

I first started blogging to document my life journal and help others too.  I also wanted a venue to share what I had learned during my journey with network marketing and direct sales.  My passion is to help others, but the reason I also blog is to make my readers laugh, cry and just plain react, hopefully in a positive way!  Oh and I love that a blog is interactive because I really love comments! 

There are topics that I have not begun to share and some that I never plan to share.  I wanted this to be a place where I can come and sit with a nice hot cup of coffee and relax.  If I were to start discussing controversial topics I definitely would not be at peace!

To address the last question in this assignment I will have to share my post  as an example to be able to show how I have benefited from sharing a piece of myself online in this venue.  I have been able to share things on here that I haven't shared with anyone and that definitely benefits me in a healthy way!

To give the example, my Mom died back in 1993 from Breast Cancer.  I had never written about her but of course have never forgotten all that she did for me and what she has meant to me.  

Yesterday the prompt on this challenge was to write about a woman that inspires us.   This opened the door for me to be able to write about my Mom and honor her with a post.  You can view the post here.   As I wrote down the words, it brought back so many wonderful memories, some of which I hadn't thought of in years.  

Thank you The SITS Girls and for your #Back2Blogging Event for helping me share about one of the most important and inspirational woman I have ever known, my Mom. 

Please come and join a group of inspirational women that I have been blessed to associate with and blog to your heart's content!

Please, I introduce you to Thelma and Louise, a fabulous washer and dryer set, one of the lucky participants will walk away with them!  How cool is that?!!

  8. Lisa,

    Thanks for your kind words on my latest post. Also, it is so wonderful to be able to share with others as you work out the things in your heart. What I love best about blogging is that is really is a two way street. As you share, yo learn more about yourself in the process.

    Follwoing you from MBC.


  9. Hi CJ,
    That was the first time I was ever able to write about Alexandra. So thank you for that. You had me in tears of course, but it was good to let go of certain things. So glad we connected too!~Lisa
