Blogging for Sanity

After yesterday's post, I was more than relieved to discover I am not the only one with all these anxieties. I suppose in the back of my head I already knew I wasn't alone, but sometimes hearing it (or in this case, reading it) helps verify my submissions and set my mind at ease.

A few people have done posts lately about WHY they blog. After yesterday I had no doubt in my mind what that reason is for me.

I blog for my sanity!

Because if my anxieties are high, I can voice them and my readers will set my mind at ease. When I've had a rough day, I can spin it in an entertaining tale for everyone, and by the end of the post, it doesn't seem like such a bad day any more. And because through blogging I have met so many INCREDIBLE people that I cannot begin to describe how different my life would be without them.

You guys are my sanity! I blog for you. Not to be confused with blogging for your ratings or gaining followers, but because I genuinely enjoy your company and comments! You keep me sane.

So a big fat thank you to you guys. Thank you for all your support and thank you for not being scared off by my insanity!

You are welcome and even though your blog doesn't technically put #moneyinmybaaaaaaaaank, I still love it!!!

You're welcome, and quite frankly, I'd question your sanity (or at least your truthfulness) more if you said that you never struggled with anxiety or fears in your writing.

Good lady, if people in the blogosphere were scared off by insanity, there wouldn't be much of an online writing community, would there? Ain't we all off by just a little bit? We're writers!

Glad I can do my part to keep you out of the asylum, though... :)

I lost my sanity. If you find it, perhaps hanging out with yours (cuz I know they're good friends), send it home. Thanks!! And thank you for blogging :) I love reading what's happening in your life :)

You're welcome!

And when we're faced with a lot of problems, doubts, and anxiety, it helps US to know we're not alone...that there are others facing the same thing!
