I am a little late in putting together this post, but, like they say better late than never. If you have made the outdoor blogging rounds lately, you will have noticed several of my fellow bloggers have written a post pertaining to a question that was raised by Kristine over at the Outdoor Bloggers Summit.
The question she put forth was a simple one. “Why Do You Blog?”
Seems like a simple question, right? Well, I wonder why it has taken me a couple of weeks to ponder on what kind of answer to give to all my blogging friends. I hope my answer here is a little different than the normal response one would expect. So, after much thought, it came to me in these words. I hope everyone will understand what I am trying to say. Here is my response.
“I don’t want anyone to hold my hand. I want to unchain my soul. I don’t want to lean on anyone. I am getting much to old for that. No contracts or promises here, just my own self made security. If I write something poorly on my blog or offend someone, I am man enough to accept that. As I write for this blog, I will hold my head up high and keep my eyes and ears open to the outdoor view and to the voices that relate to me.”
“I do not know what tomorrow might bring, so I can not write about the future. So it is my plan to plant my own garden and to decorate my own soul, instead of waiting for someone else to bring me flowers. I will be strong and I will endure and my blog really does have self worth.”
Thank you for reading and I hope that there is something here that my readers will give thought to and better understand who I am.
