Why I Blog

Someone once asked me why anyone should listen to what I have to say about tea. And I have been asked quite a few times why I blog. This blog is about my journey through tea. It is also about my life. I think it offers a few things.

First, you get to see the teas I have been drinking and what I think about them. If they are teas you were considering drinking, perhaps the review will help you make a better decision. If not, you will get some insight into what my thoughts were as I was learning about it. I am not a tea expert. I know more than the average person (most of the people I run into drink teabags and didn’t know you could buy loose leaf.). I always try to learn more and give better reviews. I love tea discussions and love making tea friends!

Second, I want to share my experiences with people. I am a Major Depressive with an Anxiety Disorder and IBS. These facets of my life are common with others. I find it sad that they feel alone in the world. And I know there are people that do, because sometimes I do. It helps me feel a little better to know that there are others like me. That it will get better, one way or another. That I’m not suffering alone. I love to share the great things in my life and have been posting less about trials I have encountered. But, I am hoping to be a bit more open in the future. I am hoping it might help someone. Because we can all use a little help!

Lastly, it is an insight into a journey. Maybe I’m not scaling Mt. Fuji. Maybe I’m not hiking through Australia. But, this is my journey. And some mornings, waking up is my Mt.Fuji. And surviving an anxiety attack can feel like losing your trail, hiking in an Australian desert. Sometimes, it’s a great day and my largest problem is which tea to enjoy.

Regardless, I hope that you enjoy the site. I would love to hear your thoughts! I appreciate you checking me out and I hope you’ll come back occasionally!  🙂

    Wow, I’ve never been asked “why should I listen to you” as a blogger. What a rude question for someone to put in your direction. My response wouldn’t have been as diplomatic as yours. Probably something along the lines of, “Why do I blog, and why should you listen to me? Because ‘f**k you’, that’s why!” (hehe)

    But this is why I keep my mouth shut.

    Sharing in any fashion is a brave thing to do, and it is for THAT reason why people should listen to what you have to say.

      LOL I appreciate that!

      I agree, I found it snarky and it put me off. However, afterwards, I received some great support and it put a few things in perspective for me. I will admit that sometimes I hold back or second guess myself because of that question. Sometimes I wonder why, also. Then, I put on my big girl pants and think about how I love to learn from other people, no matter where they are in their journey. And how someone else might feel the same way reading my blog.

      Also, I throw darts at his likeness in my basement.
