This post is brought to you by the NaBloPoMo July prompts from BlogHer. This month, I am writing about connections. 

Today’s Prompt:  Mike White admits: “I guess I’m trying to write stuff that I, as a viewer, would connect to.” Do you think you do this on your blog?

While I try to write posts that I think my readers would want to read, I have to go back to why I write.

I write for…

* My Kids – I used to seriously journal and have stepped away from that in the digital world. I want them to remember everything–the good, the bad. I want them to know me, and be able to hear my voice even when I’m gone.

* An outlet – I have my guard up, yet I am not so afraid to spill my guts on this here blog. It’s because when I write (or type in this case), my heart opens up. Sometimes I shed tears, sometimes I laugh. Regardless, I get it out and don’t hold it in.

* To share – As a family, we have some unique experiences, often ones we do alone. I like to share the things we do so others can enjoy, too.

I guess with those things in mind, I do write with my viewers in mind, even if that viewer is only me.

Dayna Steele, who writes a daily blog with success tips for professionals, shared this week:

Even when no one is listening (or reading, or watching), every outing is a bravura performance, because you as creator are happy.

I couldn’t agree more.
