I love blogging, though I would much rather it not be under these circumstances. It is a lot easier than most think. For me, laying my thoughts out in writing has always come a touch easier than trying to present them verbally, but I do love a good conversation. The best general part of blogging, for me, is being able to go back and read what I wrote months back. The blog serves several other functions and is quite handy for people dealing with Cancer in their lives. The blog has helped limited phone calls and having to answer the same questions over and over. The blog is also a great place to send someone who wants to know your story...one that happens so fast, in such a blur, that the only way to get the entire story is by documented record.
You never know who might read your blog. I joke all the time that "You never know, maybe Opera will read the blog." Not sure what would happen if she did...haha. My blog has touched many people, besides my family and friends. From fellow brain tumor warriors to a nice kid doing a high-school project on how hope effects recovery, I have been able to tell me story to many many people.
Blogging is far easier than most think. There are many websites to choose from to host your blog, but I do like Blogger. The mobile app needs some work, but the rest of the site is easy to use and navigate. Blogger also has an extensive help section, to tackle even the wildest of questions.
When in doubt, blog it out!
