Why I started blogging

Today’s topic on Post a Day 2011 is “Why did you start blogging?”

I started feeling scratchy. Irritable. Granted, its mostly due to sleep deprivation turning me into a cranky bitch but I think a small part of my irritability was realising that my days are spent doing things for other people. That there was nothing left for me at the end of it, no space I could call my own.

I felt like I needed to find a few minutes each day for something completely selfish. Preferably something selfish and non-fattening because when I’m feeling cranky I usually console myself with food (as an aside when I am feeling great I reward myself with food, but thats a post for another day).

So here it is, my selfish space. Having a blog is so narcissistic it makes me blush when I think about it so I try not to think about it too much and instead just enjoy having a small space where I can vent.

  1. I think you’ve hit the nail on the head – whatever that means! Blogging IS a way to just “BE” and let go. Cheapest therapy around! Enjoyed your post.

  2. Of course it is narcissistic, but as you said ad a mom when so much focus is on others a bit of self indulgence is okay
