    Yes! Since I started blogging about 4 years ago, I’ve learned that 1) it is a great outlet for me, & 2) it helps me analyze & clarify my own thinking.

    It is also fun to look back at what we’ve written three or four years ago and finding useful forgotten insights. Occasionally it is surprising, in both a positive and negative way: I wrote that vs. I can’t believe I wrote that!

      I’m with you on this one! I found a journal from 15 years ago that made me both proud and cringe.

    Not really, for me.

    It’s all about communication. I write books that I hope will reach others, with a message in the context of a story, and blog to try to achieve something similar.

    Joan Didion’s a great writer, and much deeper than me. If I looked inward to that degree I’d go mad.

    Yes, yes, yes! I write to work things through in my head and heart. To hear God speaking to me in more tangible words, and to let others know they are not alone.

    I also write to figure hard things out in my head, for some reason writing seems to make things more clear and easier to understand.
