Why I Blog

I have family visiting this week, so I am a little too unfocused to write a lot. I have had a metablog entry growing in my head for a while now, so I think this is a perfect time to put it down. Here it is:

Why I blog:

  1. I love geeking out about improv
  2. I love how improv seems so connected to Zen and Taoism
  3. I love how much improv has affected my life and relationships
  4. My wife told me I should do this
  5. I had a great blog mentor
  6. I perform improv in a small town wanted to connect with other improvisers
  7. I write to work though the sh*t in my own head

Why I have fallen in love with the blogosphere

  1. When I was dealing with some crazy fears I read this blog
  2. When I was feeling lost I read this blog
  3. When I was feeling crazed about being a new dad I read this blog
  4. When I want a laugh I read this blog
  5. When I need to connect to other improvisers I read this blog
  6. When I want to think about how improv affects life I read this blog
  7. Or this blog

Thank you for inspiring me.

Today’s Improvmantra: Give Thanks.


About improvmantra

What is an improv mantra? An improv mantra is a phrase you repeat to yourself just before you go on stage, and continue to keep in your mind while you are in a scene. An effective mantra makes you a better improviser. Todd Erler, like all living creatures, has been doing improv every day since he was born. He has been performing improv on stage for more than 20 years. He is a teacher, writer, musicain, director, actor, and member of The Portable Reality Show.

  4. Thank you so much! I love reading your posts, and I find them informing my blog (and just thoughts on life) as well. This is why blogging rocks – it connects us to new people and ideas to which we might never have otherwise been exposed!
