When it’s someone’s birthday or a friend’s baby shower or another anniversary, I like to give presents that bring joy or are at least useful to the receiver.
Otherwise, it’s a waste of time and money for both the giver and recipient.
Writing is my gift to the reader. The stories I tell, the blog posts I compose–all are purposed for the reader to connect with the emotions of the story and/or to bring something useful to her life.
If I have nothing to say, it’s like I’m sending a friend a handwritten letter filled with junk mail.
Instead, I want to make you glad you went to the mailbox, glad you found a long-awaited letter with just the news you wanted to hear.
Why do you read a blog? What do you want to read about? I’d appreciate your comments below.
