Why Blog?

So I am nearly 50. I find myself saying things like “it wasn’t like that in my day” and “people today don’t appreciate how good they have” etc. etc. Yes all those types of phrases my parents used to say when I was young (and may I add I used to think, oh what do you know, you’re just old!). Well now I am in that category and I have realised maybe my parents had something!

So I have decided to start blogging about life in general, for my own benefit. Through writing I am hoping I can try and come to an understanding on life today and how it may differ (good and bad) from times that have gone before.

My blogs are for entertainment, information and knowledge sharing. Entertainment will be my main focus, both yours (hopefully) and mine. But that does not mean I will not write about challenging subjects or preach about worthy causes. I have many passions and will write about all of them, please remember the opinions are my own (and boy oh boy do I have opinions).


When I started researching why people write blogs I came up with the folowing reasons:

  • Express yourself and share your passions
  • Make a difference
  • Share your knowledge
  • Refine your writing skills
  • Make money online
  • Build your network

The top 4 are my main reasons for writing a blog, the bottom two would just be byproducts and I will not be focussing on them. So feedback, comments and interaction are all welcome.

Let the blogging begin ……….
