It's a creative outlet that offers instant gratification. What can be better than that?

Amy said...

Coming into contact w/people throughout the world I would have never known otherwise. I've "met" a lot of neat people--like Angie!1 :o)

Scott said...

Ditto on what Lori said!

In the beginning, blogging was a way to release pent up frustration (rants from my soapbox). When I started my writing blog, it was really just a way to track my progress.

Now, the best thing about blogging is the writing community within the blogsphere I have become a part of.

One of them is visiting you!

I can't seem to get enough of my blog friends! My day isn't complete until I check in with you all!

Blogging is a great way to practice my writing too.

Robyn Campbell said...

Blogging lets me share my frustrations and my satisfactions. My *happy dancin'* times and my *I can't do this* times. I know and can talk to folks who are going through the same emotions as I am. They can relate to me. Yeah! It feels goood!!!! :)

Deb Shucka said...

It's a chance for me to play with writing, explore my inner self, and be connected to other writers. I feel more complete and the world feels a friendlier place because I blog. It feels like family (in the best way possible).

Eileen Astels Watson said...

Keeping a sort of diary on it and meeting other writers and readers!

Jessica said...

Hmmm, I don't know! LOL I think I love it all. I like leaving comments and giving my opinion. Hehee.

Rebecca Nazar said...

Knowing: Hey, I'm not all that alone as a writer!

Robin @ Be Still and Know said...

Last night as I was checking my email I received a comment from a fellow blogger, it had been a few days since my last post (six days to be exact) and she was wondering where i was an what was going on.

This just blows me away!

The level of communication and relationship we are able to attain though reading and sharing our thoughts with each other really is amazing.

I also am challenged to push myself as God leads me gently (He is being very patient with my hesitancy right now) into this witting thing!

Great question!!!!

Blessings
Robin

Debbie said...

Where do I begin? Would I have ever met people like you and Kat if I didn't blog? The personal connections. That is the best.

Carrie Wilson Link said...

OMG, that picture! At least it's better than CRACK? LOL!

Janna Qualman said...

Yep, I think I'll parrot what Lori said, too. :) Happy Weekend!

Angie Ledbetter said...

Lori, the instant feedback and info exchange really is addictive and gives ya a boost!

I feel the same, Amy. :)

Scott the writing bloggers really ARE the best, hunh?

It is nice to keep a writing hand in practice, Donna.

Robyn: Great friendships all around!

Paradox said...

Blogging for me is like my personal diary... :) Only it is not personal. But for once, I am not afraid of sharing my feelings here.. and the feedbacks that I get sometimes is such a moral boost... :)!

Angie Ledbetter said...

Ditto me, Deb & Eileen!

Jessica: I always appreciate your comments. :)

It is a nice feeling, hunh, Rebecca?

Robin: I love the extra layer of friendship and support too.

Egg-zackly, Debbie girl! :)

Carrie: And not nearly as expensive. LOL

Janna: Great weekend to you also.

Great blogging thoughts, Paradox! Thanks for sharing. :)

Marguerite said...

Ditto on all of the above comments. My daughter had that bumper sticker on her car in college. (At least it's not crack) lol
Blogging, not crack, but equally addicitng! T.G.I.F., Angie! :) Have a great weekend!!

Suldog said...

The nice relationships I've made with wonderful people all over the world. I've only had the great good pleasure of meeting a couple of them in-person, but I truly treasure all of them for their kind comments and willingness to open up about themselves on their own blogs.

There are lots of really good people out there. I've found that I just have to make a little effort for them to come and meet me :-)

Lazy Writer said...

Definitely meeting new people whose interests are similar to mine and all the wonderful things I've learned from these people.

Angie Ledbetter said...

Marguerite, you have a great weekend yourself, mon ami!

True dat, Dawg. :)

Lazy Writer: I love the info exchange too. It's like taking a crash course without exams or homework, and you love everybody in your class! :)

Jeanette Levellie said...

Encouragement from other writers, fun, an outlet for my too-full brain, winning stuff, giving away stuff, fun (oh, already said that, didn't I?)...
Jen

Terri Tiffany said...

All of the above--but mostly meeting such wonderful encouraging people:)

Angie Ledbetter said...

Jen, the online cheering section is really nice! Oh, and the contests -- wheee!

Terri: you're the #1 encourager. :)

Elizabeth Bradley said...

At first, I began blogging to gain readers. Now I find that I've gained friends, and I've learned so much reading other's blogs. It's enriching.

Angie Ledbetter said...

It is indeed, Elizabeth! Wonderfully enriching and supportive....and fun!

Red Bird said...

Making friends from all over! Reading inspirational stories and sharing hopes and dreams with other like-minded individuals! Writing, writing, writing- it's all good!
:)

Sandra Leigh said...

The best thing about blogging is bloggers. That's what made me decide to turn my travel journal into a near-daily blog - I didn't want to lose contact. I love it here.

Dorothy said...

Meeting new bloggers. Overcoming my shyness. Happy weekend, too.

Hilary said...

It allows me to be creative, to see others' creativity and to connect with like-minded goofballs such as yourself. ;)

keeps me from feeling so lonely in my reclusiveness
