One of the speakers at Press Publish in Phoenix dropped this little bon mot: “I didn’t have a therapist, so I started a blog.”
Judging by the lolsnorts that resulted, more than a few audience members have also found this to be true.
Understand: I am in no way snarking on therapy, having undergone it myself. In fact, therapy changed my life, or rather gave me the tools to create a life worth living.
That said, I completely agree with the premise. Whether it’s done in a locked journal or on a wide-open blog, writing can ease aggravations small or large and maybe even change a life – yours, or someone else’s.
