if it makes you happy

Being that I'm more dialed in to social media than I was before joining Second Life, I've been getting a lot of exposure to the opinions of others who don't know me, yet have ideas about what I do nonetheless. Although they aren't specifically aiming their comments at me, I've still been prompted to give it some thought. At first I was offended to see people claim that blogging in Second Life killed creativity and reduced us to low level marketers but I understand now that those words describe how they feel and don't necessarily reflect the opinions of those of us who have a passion for it. During one particular discussion, someone linked me to this post which pretty much hit the nail on the head in terms of why I do it. For me, blogging forces my mind to break from the thoughts of everyday stressors and focuses my energy on something which demands my attention, while at the same time challenging me creatively. The fact that I really love what I do means that I get into this zone where I'm totally present and engaged. And I do believe it's good for my mind and body.
