Burning Vapor is Moving Back Home
Why do I write? It's a question I was asked while preparing for a little part time work and it's a good question. Currently, my writing is a hobby. I have been blogging for about 10 years and my blogs have revolved around my interests in life. I have never focused on a certain topic or theme, just life. My writing has included topics such as adoption, ministry experiences, theological meanderings, and a whole host of family related stories. I'm not particularly good at writing, but I enjoy it.
I also write because it helps me stay in touch with friends and family around the globe. One of the downsides to living in so many places is that you must leave good friends behind. Writing helps me stay connected to them and they to me.
Writing also allows me to get my thoughts out on 'paper'. I have found that I can become very myopic in my views of life, so I like to step back and look at what I have written. It helps me understand the world around me a little better. My perspective is so narrow, isolated, and me-centric. With almost everything that I post I will get an email or Facebook message. These comments help shape me and my understanding of life.
And to be honest, I'm a little competitive. I like seeing viewers pop up from around the world and I like to see more and more readers. Seriously, it's not because I think I'm a great writer...I really just like seeing the numbers climb...hey, I'm easily entertained.
So, with all of that said, I am moving our blog back to it's original spot at http://www.burningvapor.com. I'm still toying with themes and such, but this will be it's new, old location. If you have a blog, I would love for you to update the new address or add me to your reading list. See ya there!
