Why do you blog? Answering prompt provided by Blindzanygirl
Today morning my shower was hot even though I kept it at the same setting. The reason being our temperatures have increased and it is not so cold. How can I share this thought to the world if I do not have a blog.😃
My son got diagnosed with autism just before my 25th birthday so I have been a special needs kid’s mother most of my life. I really wanted to have some individuality and so I started writing. My about me page has all the details but again a reflection of why I blog here once again.
I started my blog page just before the pandemic began and I could have used that time to spread my blog. No I did not. I just wrote just one or two blogs. Then I did the Bloganuary Challenge 2022 and I really enjoyed doing it. I found so many other blogger’s challenges the same time and I thought I can participate in that too. I know about obsessive compulsive disorder very well, since I struggle with my son so I am not obsessed with blogging. But I see to it that I post blogs on a regular basis and I try to read as many bloggers’ posts I follow. I keep telling everyone I do not have the time to read but reading other people’s blog is easy since I can do that while I watch my son do his puzzle or when he is just walking in the yard. So I do read a lot.
When my second kid wrote on his French essay that his Mom is a blogger, I felt elated. This I would say was a feather on my cap moment. I also did seven blogs to the pictures my brother shared with me on WhatsApp. He used to tease me, that I can write for anything and I did it.
If I did not have a blog how can I boast all the achievements I make like me memorzing the entire Gita or finding my long lost prescription glasses😊😃.As a human it gives me the much needed pride when WordPress sends me messages saying I have this many views or followers. Of course my Mom and bots around the world share some credit, it does help my ego.
As I keep saying to myself I am not only a special needs Mom, but also a daughter, a mother to a typical kid and a sister and I think I am exhibiting all those aspects in my blog (though it says special needs).
I feel like I own a big organization with my blog and that has given me positive energy to spend quality time with my family. I do hope my blog does spread positivity to others who read them the same way it does for me.
This was a wonderful prompt and Thank you so much for that.
