15 Excellent Answers to "Why Do You Blog?"

BlogHer Original Post

"Why do you blog?" or "Why did you start blogging?" are often the first questions asked in any interview with a blogger. They're very different questions, though, aren't they? Whether you've been blogging for months or years, why you started and why you continue may be fundamentally different things. As part of our 10-year anniversary Selfiebration, I scoured the Internet to find out what drives us to keep pressing publish.

From the early years when I was pouring out stories and feelings I couldn't say out loud, to now, when I am sharing what it is like to be the mother of a tween girl and writing much more confidently about my feelings (even when they are just as hard and mixed-up as they were in 2005), I am sharing me. My heart. My truth. -- Tracie Nall of from Tracie
