Why Did I Start Blogging?

Monday, September 5, 2016

[Savannah] in Wonderland has been my corner of the internet for over two and a half years. I can still remember the day I created the blog on my dad's birthday (January 7), 2014, and I'm so, so happy that I did. I guess you could say that today's post is this year's belated anniversary post, since at the time my blog turned 2 years old, I was in the throes of starting new (at the time) full-time work.

So, why did I start blogging at all? Why did I choose this outlet to share my thoughts and adventures with you?

Let's talk about that. :)

I chose to blog because I wanted to talk about stuff on my mind.
I was in college at the time this blog was created, and I was wrapping up my senior year. I consider it Providential timing that one of my assignments in one of my media classes was to write a blog post pertaining to an issue young/college-aged adults could face. Also, my professor said yes, I could use my existing blog. So, I wrote a post about chivalry that had been burning in my mind for quite some time (so much so that I actually adapted the experience/that post to a magazine article for work). You can read that post on chivalry here.

I wanted to keep on talking, so I proceeded to talk about things that I was either dealing with, learned, or otherwise wanted to express to y'all.

I chose to blog because I wanted to share my passions.
If you look at the top of this blog, you'll find several categories. These are things I like to talk about or enjoy in my spare time, so why not talk about them on this blog?

Back in my Tumblr days, I created several separate blogs for each passion - for example, I can remember having personal, travel-related, book-related, and writing-related Tumblr blogs going at various intervals. A good thing about this format I'm on now is that I can keep those passions in one corner of the Internet so I can express them whenever I want in one place. It's convenient and I love it.

Finally, I chose to blog so I can share my faith.
I've shared some very faith-related posts with you guys, like how I was baptized, and most recently, how I related my study/thoughts on patience to pumpkin spice lattes.

I want to let you know that my faith is of paramount importance to me, so I'm always more than happy to share or relate something to my faith in Jesus Christ. It's an absolute blessing to have this personal outlet to share such a big part of my life with others, and I'm so thankful to God for giving me the ability to write not only for work or leisure, but also to write to you.

Anyway, y'all, that's why I blog. Thank y'all so much for reading, whether you've just visited or have been here since the beginning. I love you guys! :)
