1 Year Blogiversary : Why I blog?

Something big happened this week on My Country Girl Ramblings.
Something big to me.
I've been blogging for a whole 12 months.

I still can't believe that I started blogging.
It was a huge step for me.
I was putting everything out there for the world to see.
Kind of scary when you think of it like that.
I wasn't sure what I would write about.
I needed to find my blogging voice.

I never thought I would get so much out of blogging.
I thought it was a group of women who needed something to fill there day with.

I was wrong!!
It's so much more that something to do.
You make friends.
I've made connections with people who, without blogging, I would have never knew existed.
You share you thoughts, problems and advice with people that truly care about what you have to say.

Blogging is not for everyone though.
I get that.
People may think I'm weird for starting a blog.
Some people might think I do it to get attention.
They might think I do it to get free stuff.

Why do I blog??
I blog for ME!
No body else.
I blog because I have something to say.
I blog to complain about my kids. Ha!
I blog to share my creativity and DIY fails.
I blog to make connections with people.

I don't do it for the attention or free stuff.
( free stuff is nice but there isn't a whole lot of it)

Maybe that makes me weird or strange but I don't care.
I have learned so much about myself because I blog.
I've learned things that are making me a better person.
A better Wife.
A better Mom.
I've learned that I love to write even though I hated English in school.
( Poor Miss McGarry)
I have even written a piece for a website and had it published.
I think my English teacher would be proud of that.

Over all I have loved the past year of blogging and I don't think I'm going to be stopping anytime soon.

  1. Happy blogiversary! I'm relatively new to the Blogosphere. Only a few months in. I look forward to writing about my first year. I'm just starting to understand that there is so much more to this than just writing though :-)
