Another heart felt and serious post brought to you by #BLOGTOBER14.


Day Ten: I Never Thought Blogging Would...

When I started this blog I did it because I wanted to remember the fun things that were happening in my life. I started this blog to share experiences, document milestones, and definitely so that I could complain. It really blows my mind when I think about what this little blog of mine has created and helped me to find.

Now, on a regular basis, I speak to women that live in Ohio, California, Texas, Chicago, Florida, and Colorado. I have blog friends that I talk to every single day, from literally, all across the country. That is not something that I feel most people can say about their lives. And it is certainly not something that I take for granted.

These are women that I admire, that I trust, and that I often times will go to instead of my "real life" friends. I never would have imagined that blogging could help me to create such real and fantastic relationships/friendships. Even when I quit blogging for awhile, I know I can still count on these ladies when I come back, or for a little social media support.

The blogging community is something that I am proud to be a part of. Once you are in, you are in, and these ladies are gonna be hard to get out of your life. Some of these women I have had the pleasure of meeting in person, some I exchange snail-mail and gifts with, and others advise me strictly through twitter or instagram.

I believe that I am not just another internet handle to these girls and that our friendships are important. I hope that every blogger has the opportunity to feel the love that I have experienced. I hope that one day you have the opportunity to meet a girl through blog comments, try fake eyelashes together, and then have her as your wedding photographer.

I never thought blogging would bring so many awesome bitches into my world!

  1. That's so nice you have so many other bloggers who have become your friends - I honestly didn't think blogging would be like this, but I am so glad it is. It's so amazing that people all over can talk and make an impact on others :)

  6. " I never would have imagined that blogging could help me to create such real and fantastic relationships/friendships." - That and so much more is exactly what i feel blogging gave me. Of course it costs a lot of time & effort to dedicate yourself to blogging, but it's such a rewarding feeling to be connected to bloggers from all around the world, that i do not want to miss that anymore.

    1. Blogging really is a great place to let out all of your feelings and also to find a ton of support. I think it is worth the time if you have something worth saying. I don't mind writing the posts that I am going to want to read in the future!

      PLEASE change your comment settings! You are a noreply-comment leaver and it makes it so hard to communicate with youuuuu :(

    1. Have you been able to start any relationships through blogging? Mostly it happens for me through comments and the replies. Kayla and I just started the longest email thread ever because she commented on my post, and then our friendship grew from there.

      It'll be a lot easier for you to build those relationships if I can easily reply to your comments! Check your settings and make sure you have an email!
