Dungeon Prompts: Why do you blog?

 This week’s prompt is: Why do you blog?

“Blogging is to writing what extreme sports are to athletics: more free-form, more accident-prone, less formal, more alive. It is, in many ways, writing out loud.”

– Andrew Sullivan

“Not only are bloggers suckers for the remarkable, so are the people who read blogs.”

– Seth Godin

“Selling to people through social media is like going to a party, meeting somebody for the first time, and then saying, ‘Hey, do you want to buy this Tupperware?’”

– Pat Flynn

Today’s Prompt:

There are many different reasons for blogging. Some do it as a journaling exercise to work through issues. Others do it as a way to communicate with an online community. Some do it as advertising, while others do it to bring awareness to a particular cause. Many do it just as a creative outlet, and to practice and perfect their craft. Why do you blog? What do you get out of it? Are you happy with your experience so far? Let us in on what drives you to keep blogging

    Dungeon Prompt: Why do You Blog. A Gift Beyond Measure


    As always I appreciate your contributing the pingback.

  2. Thanks for this prompt. I have no new post about this, therefore I just share here in the comments.
    I started a blog because my inner guidance forced me to do so. Otherwise I would get sick. I blog about my spiritual jounrey because I get sick when I don’t.
    I have an old post where I have shared this

    I never thought how far the inner voice of guidance would push me beyond my comfort zone.
