Five Ways Blogging has Changed My Life

Maggie has tagged me with this little thinker of an activity. I'm not sure I can come up with 5 things, but I'll give it a shot.

  1. Blogging is like therapy to me in some ways. It allows me to put down thoughts and ideas in a concrete format. I tend to have a hundred things going on in my head at once and blogging out some of it takes off some stress.
  2. Blogging has allowed me to meet people in other parts of the country that I never would have met otherwise. I feel honored to be able to interact with my "blog friends", as I call them.
  3. I learn a lot from my "blog friends", and I often am inspired, humored, humbled, or made wiser from their posts. Very often I take away just what I needed that day from a post, whether it be a laugh, a quote, or whatever.
  4. Blogging keeps me in touch with friends and family that live far away. We have no family nearby, so it's a great way to share pictures of our kiddos and relate stories of our family events.
  5. Hmm, well, I guess it helps me remember special times in our lives, like when we had our ultrasound of Zachary. I printed that blog page out to put in his baby book. I love making headers with updated pics of our kids so I can see them changing over time as I blog. Like "Maggie" said, it's a way to celebrate and remember, for me and all who visit my blog.

*Edit--I was supposed to tag people for this. Ok, let's see if Joni and Jules can jump in. I think "Maggie" tagged all the rest already. If not, consider yourself tagged if you're a blogger!

Great list! It really wasn't so hard, was it?

Thanks for your thoughts.

I hope you blog to keep me updated, too...I am so bad with the phone. Love you much, sister. I'm so proud of you.
