Why Not Blog?

I read this great post the other day on The Isaiah 53:5 Project asking “Why Blog?” I loved this question because I think many of us can agree that we all think that at some point. Why Blog? I’ve even felt that way. Why waste my time trying to write something folks may never read?

Then it hit me…why not? Why not write because you have something to say and even if no one reads your stuff you are still sharing your words. Your truth. We want to engage our readers. In my case, my writings vary daily from topics. I wear many hats so I write what I feel.

I will write about God, Jesus, the holy trinity. Dating, relationships, sex, money, parenting, sins, work, career, black lives matter, health, fitness and my munch. My stories vary, but I get less likes on my Jesus posts than anything.

Same thing happens on Facebook when I tell how awesome God is.  Maybe a sprinkling of likes, but when I post a picture of me I get so many likes. Does that mean we’re shallow? We don’t like someone spreading the good news? I don’t know. I don’t sweat it. Because all I can tell you is my truth. My point of view. So, I write. I blog. Without ceasing.

And so should you.

You don’t have to be a scholar to share your words. Even if you reach one person then it’s worth it. We blog because it’s worth it. We write because it’s worth it. We share our truth, stories or poetry because it’s worth it.

Don’t give up fellow bloggers. Keep blogging. Keep engaging and just keep writing.

  1. Continue to use this platform. As I’ve said before, you have no idea how many souls you’re blessing with your writing. While someone is being touched by your experiences, you are also healing by sharing your stories. Continue to allow God to use you. Love you Chica 😘.

  2. I enjoy reading your posts very much! I love how you will write about anything you want even if others may not always like it. Such as your posts about Jesus, I’m glad that you talk about Him because He deserves to be talked about. But yes, whenever I see your newsletter pop up in my email, I think to myself, “Let me see what Tikeetha’s thoughts are today!” even if it’s multiple times a day. 🙂 You write very well and I’m glad that you encourage other bloggers to keep doing it.

  3. I think we all have different reasons.I have multiple reasons. Firstly, words are important to me. Writing is my favourite form of self expression next to singing and I don’t get to sing enough these days. Secondly, I wanted to leave my niece and nephew with something that will last forever. A little insight into their family, their history, the weird genes they’ve inherited. Finally, I want to develop my craft and the best way to do that is to practice. Like you and most writers throughout history, it doesn’t matter if anyone reads it. Hell, in the old days, when people had to write with pen on paper or even with typewriters, they were lucky if their mother, partner or best friend even read it. At least with the internet, we not only have a chance that someone might read it, feel something and connect with us, but we also have the opportunity to create communities and relationships with other writers so that we do have people who will read and are interested in what we have to say. I’ve very much appreciated your support and the fact that you read my blog and even though I’m not as good as you are with my proverbial pom poms, I do try to pay it forward. Keep on writing gal! You are good at it and some of us out here are reading!
