Wow. I cannot believe that April has come and gone. The A to Z Challenge along with it. Wow.
I will say that the A to Z Challenge definitely opened up my eyes to the world of blogging. Convenient enough for it to be the month I started blogging. I laughed at that. I had started blogging in the beginning of April. It is now May. I have 28 followers. I will say that it makes me smile.
I love blogging. I never would have thought myself to be a blogger. Maybe it's because I always assumed blogging was all about yourself. You know, conceited stuff like that. I guess I thought I wasn't cut out for it. Look at me now (figuratively speaking).
It's been kind of hard, what with school and everything. Especially considering that I loved blogging. It was hard to stay away and do my homework instead. As it is, I'm taking a little bit of a break from my homework to write this. Hey, at least I'm honest.
I didn't actually plan on using my Blogger account to blog. I had made the account so that I could enter this contest. The person holding the contest was giving away like 30 or 45 books or something for first place. Me being the reader I am, made the account so that I could enter. Now, I personally know Lee over at Tossing it Out. I had known he was a blogger, but for some reason it never really crossed my mind until my cousin's birthday party about two weeks after I made my Blogger account. At that point I was curious about the world of blogging. Not that I knew much about it at the time. So, I decided to check out his blog. Turned out he had this big A-Z Challenge going on. I started a bit late, but I was able to catch up. And I'm glad I entered. It was a great way to "meet" new people. I also got some Followers along the way. Thank you guys for following. RAWR!
Anyways, this blog really changed my life. I never thought I would ever say that. I'm a writer, but I guess blogging wasn't included in that until now. And I love it. I really really do. It's strangely comforting to know that people actually care enough to read what I'm writing.
Why do I blog? It took me a while to figure this out. One, I like it. I like being able to say pretty much whatever I want. The freedom is... nice. It lets me be myself in a way I never have been able to before. I love that.
I like knowing that I gave my opinion. I like getting my writing out there. (I know I haven't been doing a lot of that lately, but I do have VWRP.) Why else? In a world where people like me are overlooked and easily forgotten, here I feel as if I have the opportunity to be noticed.
I really can't think of any other reasons. I love blogging (and writing and reading). I love being able the express myself. It's liberating.
This A-Z Challenge has changed so many people. I want to do that. I want to be a part of some sort of change. It would make it feel as if my life had some worth. If I made at least one person happy in this world. Then I could make more people happy. That way, whenever I doubt myself, or feel as if I am worthless.
I can remember
all those lives I
changed. All those
people whose days I made
brighter, just by
You gotta admit, wouldn't that feel nice? I want to change lives for the better. That all I really want.
So thank you, Lee! For this A-Z Challenge. I hope you know what a wonderful person you are! I hope you know how many lives you have changed! RAWR!
Have a good day. In general. ;)
