Why I Started a Blog

Why I Started a Blog

For over a year I thought about the idea of starting a blog.  It wasn’t until September of 2017 that I mustered up enough courage to start one.  Now that I’ve started this blog journey I wish the courage bug bit me sooner.  So, why did I start this blog?

Essentially I started this because I love to write and I enjoy helping others.  In an earlier post, I briefly spoke about my life as a teenager.  Growing up I didn’t have a father in the picture.  My mother did an awesome job raising me, but I found myself making terrible decisions trying to prove that I was a man without an active father figure.  If it weren’t for my mother as well as other positive role models around me, I’m not sure where I’d be.  Because of the impact they had on my life, I felt it would’ve been wrong of me to not pass that positivity on to others. Believe me, I know firsthand that a few positive words can completely change someone’s life.  Through this blog, I hope a little positivity is added to your life.

Thank all of you for being readers of my blog.

Sincerely,

Marcus

    Keep sharing your voice. Blogging is not as easy as people think, and especially with such a positive message you are creating.

        You are welcome! By the way, I like the quote of the day. When I was teaching high school, I had a wall that I would add a new quote each week. If I forgot, the students would let me know. By the end of the year the wall was filled with them. They are little shots of inspiration.

          I may have to steal that idea Jamey!
