Why Am I Doing This?

Are you even interested?  What do ya want from me, already?
After reading through several of my favorite blogs today (because I have to keep up) I found myself wondering as I responded to their posts, 'what in the hell am I doing all of this for, anyway?'

Here is what I discovered:  I love to write.  I love to commune with like minds.  I love to feel the power of influence.  I have a desire to make a significant impact, artistically, in my lifetime.  I am bored with life at times so I stir things up occasionally.
How about him?  Nahh, he loves me whether I write or not.  But, yes, I do.

So, Who am I doing this for?  (I asked myself....)
The Helen's and Victoria's and Rick's and Christine's and Rebecca's and Marcy's and Rosa's and Michelle's and Kirby's and Cathy's and Tony's and Toni's and Kath's and Marchelle's and Christina's and Luba's and Randy's and FF's and Fiona's and Adrienne's and Sandra's and Kendra's and GianPaolo's and Jessica's and Jordan's and Pam's and Joan's and Deborah's and Amy's and Donna's and Lori's and Laura's and Janet's and Janice's and Monica's and Nicole's and Nicola's and Nikki's and Danielle's and Shuan's and Ryan's and Karen's and Debaroo's (that's me... a name my son's girlfriend, R, gave me a bit ago).

What a story these eyes tell.  

My writing is because I have to.

So, why have an audience?

Because, it is so much more fun, don't you think.

I love my readers!

(Thank you, reader.)

My Chia Pet gives me tons of feedback.  He laughs at me all the time.  Asshole!
Now, just for the heck of it, drop and do 20 push ups.  (You can do them on your knees, ya know.)


  1. Oh, how I wish I could do the push ups right now but I have a yucky cold/flu thing going on! It's killing me that I can't work out!!! :(

    It seems that alot of bloggers get to a place where they get stuck... but I'm glad you want to keep going because I love your blog and it's one of the few that I read on a regular basis!


  2. OK...whew...I did 12 push ups, Debaroo!(love that nickname)

    I agree. I basically blog for myself because I, like you, enjoy writing, but it is nice to have an audience. True, true.

  3. Linda,
    I am so glad you enjoy my blog. I enjoy yours too. It is like having a whole new group of friends.

    You rock, girl! 12 works just fine.
    Debaroo (I know it is pretty cute.)

  4. cute post and i love that you cuss too.


  5. Ok - let's be serious for a moment (something I rarely do.) I think people blog because it's getting harder and harder to find like-minded people to be friends with. I also think as you get older it becomes very hard.

    I'm just shy of 65 and most the folks around here my age are old. Blogging gives people some semblance of contact with others who share their views.

    However, (always pay close attention to what comes after "however") for some folks it has taken over their lives to an unhealthy degree. You, however, (there's that however again) are far from that scenario.

  6. janet,
    Oops! I am glad that "richlifeonabudget" is not going to post for a few weeks so she may not notice my 'tacky' (well, she does too).

    I agree whole heartedly! I have found such great women while blogging and bloggers seem progressive. Yes, HOWEVER, some can take it a bit too far!
