Top 10 Reasons I still blog about communicating

by Betty Lochner on April 14, 2011

Wow. You are reading my100th blog post!

Yep, I’ve been blogging for just over a year now, so that means that I’m posting a whopping average of just under twice a week.

Though I post about all about communication,  I have written most about conflict skills, gratitude and appreciation, improving listening skills and, of course, my dogs.

I got to thinking about why I started blogging and, more importantly, why I continue to blog. So I came up with my Top 10 Reasons.

Top 10 Reasons I blog:

10.  It helps me procrastinate when I should be doing other more productive things.

9.    I gotta believe that someday someone outside of my family members will actually read it.

8.    I can use bad grammar or punctuation and no one sends it back marked in red.

7.    I get to come up with creative ways to tell cute stories about my dogs and call it communication.

6.    My husband said it wouldn’t last more than a week.

5.    I feel really cool and hip when I tell people that I have a blog.

4.    I look busy.

3.   I can say things to people like, “I’m going to blog about that.”  And, then, I blog about that.

2.   I can do it in my bunny slippers, at midnight, or even naked if I want.

And, the number one reason I continue to blog is….

1. I really do believe I can make a difference by helping people communicate better!

And, if you aren’t in my immediate family and are reading this, please leave a comment and let me know!

I met you once at a GET committee meeting. I found you very engaging and appreciated your passion toward the program itself. I have three kids and invested in 2002; hence my gratitude for GET. The need to keep it going for middle income folks like myself is self-evident. As for your blog, positive feedback is always a great thing. Maybe you could be a speaker at a school district function where I work: Bethel School District. Anyway, I follow you on Twitter, without which I would not have known about the blog. Have a great day.
