Blogging? Why?

It’s been a while since I got nominated for these blog award things.
I was beginning to think am not award worthy anymore lol.
Anyways thank you Mr Consistently Awesome Joel Jjemba for reminding me that I still got it by nominating me for the Blogger Recognition Award.

How are you people doing?
Part of accepting the award is to tell you how I ended up here on the blogosphere.
Why do I write and when I do,  why do I let WordPress publish?
I started blogging almost 3 years ago. Before that, I just used to write for my eyes only.
Nothing specific nudged be to start,  except that I was in a place where I needed to unravel and be unapologetically expressive.
Let’s just say I was going through a phase. I had a life altering moment happen and if I didn’t find a place to express myself, I was going to make really bad choices.  ( That’s a bit dramatically exaggerated, but you get the how right?)

Blogging opened my world. All of a sudden I had an audience of similar minds and divergent ones.
It was an epic realization of how much I didn’t know and I knew I was going to stay.
I watched and learned from people I didn’t know but had a connection with because words were our family.
It became entertainment as well and my phone had a treasure beyond candy crush and tonnes of pictures.
Beyond all that, it gives me the greatest joy to have my own voice.
I love to write, on days when I want to and on days when my relationship with words is on shaky grounds, but especially because I get to cheer the rest of us who remind me of how far I still have to go because your work is beautiful and your skills impeccable.
I think I got carried away but hey, I am practicing my acceptance speech.
So my blog cousins,  Beaton, Atim, Oluchee, The Short Black Girl , Amanya  Guulo and Luvliz, will you do me the absolute honor of accepting my nomination?

Also if you are a blogging rookie, all you have to do is write, write and when you are done,  write some more.
The rewards are infinite but the satisfaction is the ultimate prize.
