It Was a Magical Experience of..
Boredom and not having many people to socialize with. I started blogging as kid. With Xanga and the Livejournal era. It was a fun outlet to express childhood/teenage angst and confusion and just everything.
I was able to socialize with people and find people with things in common.
Why do I Blog NOW?
Same reason. Smidgen of boredom and trying to find a sense of community in the world of the internet. This blog I blended medical and my love of reading. It helped me keep my medical problems in check AND write about things I loved to read.
