Why I Started Blogging


Writing is a funny thing ya know?

I originally found out about blogs, probably somewhere around the time I was a Junior in College, back in 2005.

I liked reading them and I often followed one’s dealing with poetry, since I was way into poets and poetry back then heavily.

I thought of posting some of my stuff online, but then I wondered where I would even have time to keep up a blog.

I mean I was a student, taking a heavy class load, involved in activities on campus (partying, mainly) and working.

So I dropped the idea.

Mainly, I kept my poetry on the pages of my notebooks and journals.

But, somewhere around 2010 I decided to start writing about some things that were going on around my city. That blog I started on Blogger, called “The Topic”.

I don’t remember what sparked this idea, other than I just wanted to voice my opinion and possibly entertain my friends and family while I was at it.


Along with the idea of writing a novel, I decided to create NicoleAliciaOnline.com. It was to be a lifestyle blog about any and everything. I talked about relationship issues and review different TV shows and movies. I guess my main purpose was to entertain, gain connections, while possibly inspiring someone along the way. That’s about it.

Kind of the same thing I’m doing now…

Why did you start blogging?

Let me know down in the comments…

Until next time…
