Why Do I Blog?


Among the Pots and Pans is approaching its one-year anniversary. There are so many reasons why I blog, and the one-year mark seems as good a place as any to reflect on why I do what I do.

Fellowship

Although we bloggers need a fair amount of solitude to do our work, blogging itself is a social venture. Before I started blogging, I read other blogs — particularly faith-based and spiritual blogs. I noticed that bloggers encourage, inspire and challenge each other, in a way which resembles some of my favorite moments among friends or at church. I started this blog in search of that fellowship among like-minded writers and readers — and found it!

Sharing Wisdom

As a trained herbalist and freelance writer, I am blessed to be able to share health and wellness wisdom that I have learned from others. Whether it’s a Meatless Monday recipe or a gratitude list, I try to share helpful information on physical and spiritual wellness. An even greater blessing has ben the wisdom and encouragement I’ve received from other bloggers.

Inspiration

Women’s wisdom inspires me — particularly the wise women who carry on the ages-old traditions of herbal medicine. My faith inspires me. The beauty of nature, chocolate chip cookies, the sound of my cat purring, my husband’s smile and my mother’s artistic talent inspire me. It’s all around us — just look and listen!

Be well and be blessed!
