A question I get asked frequently is why I started blogging. I've had this blog for almost 9 years now and have consistently written this entire time. I started the blog when I was living in Memphis. I was bored so I thought it would be fun and something to do. Social media was so different back then too and I think a lot more people blogged because Facebook and Instagram weren't really what they are today. Honestly, when I started the blog I didn't really know what I was doing. I just wrote posts about my life and didn't put much thought into it. I had never been a big blog reader before and didn't gain inspiration for anyone or anything. I just wrote. I had always written in a diary and this was basically just an online diary. I didn't spill as much private details, of course, but it was an easier and quicker way to write things down about what all was going on in my life. I was wedding planning and we were living in a different city and a lot was happening that I wanted to write down. It wasn't until a few months (maybe even a year) later that I realized people were actually reading it. And not just my close friends and family, but people that I didn't know or people I barely knew. Almost nine years later and I'm still here, writing about my simple little life and people are still reading. I always say that even if nobody read my blog I would still blog. I do this for me. I would love to figure out a way to get my blog made into a book. I know it can be done, I haven't looked into it much, but some day I would love to have this in print. Just a few copies to have for myself and my kids.
