I have a confession!

I have to confess something!

I started the blog and the Slice of Life Challenge for ME!  Something that I have been wanting to do for quite a while!  Something I felt would be enough, a place to write every day, a place to reflect, a place to just be me.  I wasn't worried about and didn't really think about the comments and the thoughts that others might have about my writing.  I was writing for me.  

Here is my confession, I enjoy the comments and the looks more than I ever thought I would.  I find myself checking in to see how many people have read my post and how many comments I get each day.  I don't want to care about this, I don't want to be drawn to this, but I am! 

What someone has to add or say about what I write matters!  How many people read what I write matters!  Writing is something we do for more than ourselves!  What we write matters to more than just ourselves.


  1. I do the same thing! I enjoy reading the comments on my blog way more than checking Facebook.

  2. We all love getting comments. It is validation that what we say matters to people. I think you are perfectly justified. You can write for yourself AND for others.
