My Sixth Entry (for Saturday) In a Series of 7 for “7 Day Blogging Challenge for Bloggers”
from Jenson Taylor
The other day while browsing through the net I noticed an interesting notification from Blogger Buzz on their blog page. “Why do you blog? was the title given to that content? That title attracted my attention since I too belong to the blogger community.
Since the response from Google’s Knol page platform was so dull and discouraging these days, I was concentrating mainly on my blogging.and was spending much time on blogging and blog-related matters like reading followers’ blogs and posting comments and attending responses to my blog posts, etc.
In short, I was actively involved in these activities, even neglecting the household things, sometimes even to the dissatisfaction of my beloved ones, especially my better half’s.
I really appreciate her patience towards me even when I neglect most of the household chores and sitting in front of the computer. That was indeed now a sweet memory.
Sad to say that she is no more and departed to glory on October 4 2020 due to a cardiac arrest.
When I was thinking on this line for quite some time, and immediately when I saw the said blog, I thought this was the right time to do some jottings on this line, thus this small note or blog.
Why do you blog? Why do you blog?This question was lingering again and again in my ears. Yes, the question was buzzing around and I got a ready-made answer to it, and the following few lines flowed from my thoughts.
PLEASE LISTEN TO MY FIRST EVER PODCAST
Why do I blog? I asked myself and I wrote:
I do blog mainly to express my love towards my fellow human beings, and to share my happiness and the blessings I received through my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. And also to make aware to my fellow beings through my blog posts about the great calamity the human beings going to face if they neglect God’s Word mentioned in the Holy Bible.
And then also I do blog, to make notes of or share the important and helpful news and tips I learned on the journey to my fellow beings around the world. I firmly believe that this will in some way help some needy out there.
One of my favorite quotes: As I quite often repeat and quote in my conversations or writings is one of the founding fathers of the United States of America, “Benjamin Franklin” He once said and I repeat: “If you would not be forgotten, as soon as you are dead and rotten, either write things worth reading or do things worth the writing.”
And last, but not least I am reminded of Apostle Paul’s words when he was writing to the believers at Philippi:
“Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. The things which you learned and received and heard and saw in me, these do, and the God of peace will be with you.”(Philippians Chapter 4: verses 8 and 9 – Holy Bible).
I want to really stick to these words and to do something worth it for the entire humanity as long as I live.
