This post is strictly about food, but since it is about blogs, I think it is appropriate to post it here as well. It originally appears in my other blog. In the case of food blogging, I've been able to meet even more people who are passionate about food, some even in real life. I hope to continue to be able to share my passion for food with others who feel similarly. So below is my original post about how blogging can make us all happier.
I had written in the past about how blogging is very therapeutic for me. I've long said that the mere act of composing the thoughts and committing them to paper just seems to lighten the burden and worry. Well, there was an article in The Age about a university study that showed that blogging does make you happier.
Blogs, instead of being an anti-social tool where individuals are isolated, are actually a tool for making connections. I find that my blog is a great avenue to make connections with others both in the virtual world and the real world. I'm able to write about varied topics and occasionally someone else will also be interested and discussions will occur. As we all tend to have a limited number of friends who may not necessarily enjoy everything we do, a blog enables me to reach a much wider audience and anyone who chooses to enter the discussion without me forcing it on them.
So I plan to keep blogging so that I can discuss interesting topics with others, remove stress by writing about things that worry me, and give me opinions on various topics.
