# 21 Why Blog?

14045819341_6651d70343_z#21 Why Blog?

Blogging gives me the chance to organize thought patterns and stay on one topic to decipher the subject. I spent over 30 years teaching, and my out of the box thinking helped to come up with creative ideas to reach students. I like putting ideas under distinctive topics so that I can find them, and add onto these ideas as I think of new ones. I carry a small notebook with me and, after I have decided on a topic, I add thoughts, comments, and any information that adds to my subject. I also write new ideas and thoughts about those. I remember lessons from the past, and write about what worked well. Also, not everything worked out great. Failure is the opportunity to begin again more intelligently. Blogging is like a memoir, it’s a huge freezer filled with - trays, every cube a memory to be saved and shared.

I use Howtobuildyourownblog.net by Matt Loomis. Not only is he a computer genius, he is a blogger, web site designer, and copywriter. He also gets back to people by quickly responding to emails if you have a question. His site is easy to understand, and you can make all the changes you like. I am constantly changing background colors and formats. This week I am going to be adding pictures to my posts. He also tells you about a site called Flickr where you can get free photos on any topic, just by looking under search. I am constantly learning new things about Blogging. Perhaps one day you will give it a try?
