Growth through writing

Can writing make a difference?

When I talk to people about writing, journaling, or blogging, they sometimes hesitate. “No one’s going to read it anyway.” “It won’t make a difference.”

It’s not about being read or about being famous. It’s about discovering what you know and learning how to communicate it more effectively.

Writing is the tool that helps us sharpen our selves and share our experiences with many, many more people than we can ever meet.

Don’t worry about being lost in the flood of blog posts and status updates. Live and share.

    Yes that’s so true – my writing has improved so much from blogging, and I find the reports I write for school so much easier (often because I’ve already written chunks of them on my blog!)

    I did that for most of my thesis, too. I blogged my thoughts, then translated the blog posts into academic speak. =)
