This week, I am participating in the Back to Blogging event, over at SITS. By doing so, I have a chance to give Thelma and Louise a new home! Not the two wacko chicks in the convertible, but an awesomely beautiful washer and dryer combo from Electrolux! This event is sponsored by Standards of Excellence, Westar Kitchen and Bath, and Florida Builder Appliances.Anyway, here goes...What Blogging Means to Me
It means so much! I barely even knew what a blog was, a few short years ago. I believe I may have been looking for a pattern, when I did a search and found what I was looking for on a blog. I really liked that blog and then followed her links to the blogs of others. Then I became straight up addicted to reading blogs. I have always loved to write, so the next step was to create my own.
I jumped in feet first, with no clue where to begin. A lot of things in my life happen that way. I just take a deep breath and jump in, praying I won't drown. I will never forget how thrilled and awed I was, when someone left me a comment for the first time! Then, realizing that my blog wasn't pretty to look at, I spent many late nights, drawing and redrawing my own layout. I think it turned out pretty OK.
Anyway, blogging means the world to me! When my heart is broken, I blog. When my kids are driving me up the wall, I blog. Whenever, I'm lonely, angry, happy, or have an awesome idea, I blog. And especially, when I just need to hear someone say "Good Job!", I know I can count on my followers/friends to do that. My blog has opened up a whole new world for me. A world full of support , humor, love, and friends. I honestly think that blogging is one of the best things that has ever happened to me and I wish I had started much sooner.
