Sometimes my mom might be my only viewer

Happy Friday Eve! I am so excited for the long weekend coming up. The boyfriend and I decided last minute to book a night in the Cape, so we will be heading down Sunday early to rent bikes and will be biking/eating/drinking our way through the beautiful scenery they have down there. Just have to get through these two pesky work days. To be honest I wasn’t going to post today, not that I don’t love to, but I didn’t really have much to say and I am not ready to edit the photos from Kaelyn’s wedding this past weekend. I am a firm believer that I should not blog to just blog, but actually wait until something is useful. Then I was reading a post by Hannah over at Clean Eating Veggie Girl where she laid out why she loves blogging. I wanted to jump on the bandwagon as well.

But I get to look back at all that I have done in the past and relieve those memories from reading how I felt at that time. After almost a year living with the boyfriend, to read about the day he asked me out still gives me butterflies. That my friends is priceless!

But, my mom loves my blog. She has told me multiple times how she feels like she finally has a connection again to me and my day to day life. I’m so glad of that, and since this blog has been up she has never asked “what’s new” with me. So we can actually talk and not just catch up.

But, I can look back at all the recipes I have made and not have to ponder too long what to cook for dinner. I can also read to see if the boyfriend liked it or not. He is pretty freaking easy to please though so that isn’t really an issue.

But I have Playlists! I love that I have done so many playlists to listen to while I work out. Truth be told it is way overdue for me to post another one. When I’m at the gym though it is nice to not have to think about what song to listen to sometimes

But, I’ve met so many blends (blogger friends) and I follow their blogs now. It started out with me just following Julie at PBFingers to having tons of new blogs to read each day.

But, I’ve learned how to code follow instructions and copy codes into my blog to make things like “follow buttons” and put my profile picture up there. I’ve learned about different blog platforms and have been able to self host. I might not ever be needed in Silicon Valley, but I’ve gained knowledge that without Ashley Unfiltered I would never have.

But, I’m getting joy out of blogging and until it becomes a chore I intend to keep on doing it.

Why do you blog?

    1. Thank you! I guess I am lucky you are right, sometimes I blog just for her too so thanks for the perspective!
