College, Writing, & Blogging Tip: Where is your significance?

Hey Everyone!

Today’s tip is a short one, and really, I hope it is more thought-provoking than answer-providing.

When you start to write, what is your significance? Not sure what I’m asking. Let me make it simple. Let me ask you this.


“Why what, Kayla?” You might be asking.

Why do write? Why are you writing about your particular topic? In other words, where is your significance?

Now yes, of course, you can just write for fun! Many of us do, but writing is almost-always better when you have a purpose. So consider asking yourself this:

  • What is my purpose for writing this piece? Is it simply to entertain others? And if it is, how am I entertaining? It is meant to move others, to cause a particular reaction? Or is it more about me? Is it a way for me to release my own emotions, to confront my own demons? Every piece of writing is different and so every piece of writing will have a different purpose.
  • A blog post, a piece of fiction, and an essay are all written for various reasons with different expected outcomes. Make sure that you take the time to decide your “why” before you write!

I would love to hear back from you in the comments! Where is your significance when you write? Do you think that there has to be one?

Happy Writing Everyone!

What is your purpose?

I fully believe that each and every one of us were intentionally placed on this earth with a specific purpose and, as a Christian, I believe that purpose centers on Christ.

From time to time, I intend to post on the message that I heard in church, especially if it resonates strongly with me. This week we talked all about purpose. What is your purpose? What is mine?

As a writer, some might think that I consider writing to be my purpose.

It is my goal to become a successful author, yes, but that is not my purpose. I love writing with every fiber of my being, but as a Christian my status as “Author” must come second to my position as “Follower.”

When I discover who Jesus is, I discover what my purpose is. – Pastor Matt Brown

“If you try to hang on to your life, you will lose it. But if you give up your life for my sake and for the sake of the Good News, you will save it.” – Mark 8:35

My Purpose is to join Jesus in building his church. – Pastor Matt Brown

Within the church, every member is a single pebble. However, each pebble is able to come together to form a foundation and then a structure and then the church of God. I want to be involved in building that church.

But don’t get me wrong or turn away in disgust. I am NOT saying that as a Christian I cannot be a writer, a poet, or an artist. I truly believe that God has given us gifts and talents and He intends for us to use them. God does not mind if I write, as long as that does not come before him.

What is your purpose? Do you have one? Do you believe that you do?

“Therefore, whenever we have the opportunity, we should do good to everyone…” – Galatians 6:10

It is not my intention in this post to make you feel uncomfortable, but I hope that it might open up a dialogue. I am always willing to discuss my faith.

Happy Writing & Reading Everyone!
