Addictions can be good

I’m tickled pink! My fellow blogger, Being a Beautiful Mess, nominated me this week for “The Addictive Blog Award”.  I’m even more humbled by the fact that little Teatart could be nominated by such a thought-provoking blogger such as Beautifulmess.

The Addictive Blog AwardThe rules of the “The Addictive Blog Award” require that I thank the person awarding me and share my story on why and how I started blogging. Beautifulmess, you are truly extraordinary.  Thank you for sharing your intimate experiences with such honestly and wit.  You continue to inspire me.

As to why I blog, I can only say that writing has always been my first love. From an early age I have written stories and expressed my emotional trials and tribulations through poetry. Without writing, I would be incomplete.  Blogging is simply an extension of my writing.  It provides me with an outlet to share my life in the hope that others will be able to relate to my story and be encouraged (as I am by other bloggers).

Truth be told, when I started blogging only recently, I had a concrete plan on what I would be writing about and who I would be communicating with.  Plans are good, but I’ve quickly learnt that blogging is somewhat of a painter’s canvas – the picture changes as the artist continues painting.  My blog, Teatart, is exactly that:  my own ever-developing artwork.

Since I started Teatart, I’ve had the honour of interacting with so many motivating bloggers.  Whereas I felt alone as a former cheater, a divorcee, an insecure thirty-something woman and a sex-starved wife, I now feel part of a larger community of caring writers, poets and photographers who aim to make a difference, no matter how small, to other people’s lives.  Thank you, thank you, thank you!

    Hi, Neat post. There’s an issue along with your web site in internet explorer, may test this? IE nonetheless is the market leader and a large part of folks will miss your great writing because of this problem.
