Why I Blog

I blog because I think I have something to say. In my short 24 (almost 25) years of life, I have been through so many things, learned so many lessons. I have struggled, triumphed, and everything in between. I have met some of the most amazing people I could ever imagine, and learned more about life than I ever thought possible. I find beauty in so many things. In a quite moment in the morning or a crazy night with my friends. I live a full and happy life. I feel like one of the most blessed people on the planet. And I want to share about all of it.

Maybe someone cares, maybe they don't. But one day, my sisters will read this blog. My Mom will. Maybe even my children. If one of my loved ones, or a stranger, can learn anything from one of my posts. Whether it's learning something they can use, or just learning something new about me, this blog has served it's purpose.

I blog because it's a scrapbook for all of my brilliant ideas and horrible ones too. Because I have always kept a journal, and this is the latest and greatest form of journaling that I've come up with. And I hope I continue to keep it up, despite the many breaks from blogging I've taken.

I blog to connect. Because I like being nosy and reading about other people's lives. I like seeing into their homes and hearts. I like meeting new people and making new friends.

Mostly I blog because I believe everyone has a story. I like sharing mine. And I like reading yours :) Why do you blog?

Happy Friday!

Love this! I started my blog to keep my friends & family up to date on our crazy life. We are always on the go, and it's been a really fun way to remember our adventures and share them with others. It's become one of my favorite things :)

What a great post! I never thought about it that way, but you are right. Now that I think about it, i blog for the same reasons you do.

That and I like to keep track of my life :)!

i really enjoy getting to share my story, too. even if one person just ends up reading it. it's still cool and i hope it will be an encouragement to anyone who reads it.
