Do you write only for yourself, or do you use your blog to try to connect to other people?
I started my blog to cope with social anxieties. I’m painfully awkward when it comes to dealing with other real, live human beings so hiding behind technology makes it a little bit better.
Over time, I used my blog as a catalyst to make new friends and acquaintances in the blogosphere on Twitter and Instagram.
My blog kind of died.
Then it was revived.
Then it died.
And now we’re back to me trying to keep it alive.
Writing is tough, man. It used to be an outlet, but, lately, it seems more like homework. I’m hoping to revive it– again– for both myself and others.
I miss the writing community.
