Why I blog

Blogging: There is no greater agony than bearing the untold story inside of you. Maya AngelouI began blogging as an outlet for myself and to practice my writing craft. The difficulty with having a public blog under your own name is often walking the line dividing intimate thoughts and details of your life you are willing to share with the world and those you wish to keep private.

Maya Angelou’s quote resonates loudly with me: “There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside of you.” It’s likely I often err on the side of oversharing in my blogging.

However, I believe 100 percent that the best stories are the ones most difficult to tell. With that in mind, I hope the writing I share helps or in some way inspires others.

There are times in my life in which I felt completely alone, as well as times where reading another person’s personal testimony helped me feel as if I was not alone after all.

If my blogging provides value to even one person, it will have been worth my effort.
