Lately, I've run into a lot of people, friends, friends-of-friends, family members, friends of my husband etc...who say, "I have to admit, I read your blog, and I love it!".
Uh...have to admit?
That is fantastic! Why would you be shy about this?
I write this blog so that people will read it.
Friends, strangers, friends of friends, family members, distant family members.
Blogs are a public forum and I have chosen to put these words out there for the world.
Therefore, if you are reading my blog, no matter who you are, you do not need to feel shy or weird about it. You are making me a very happy girl!
I also have to admit that I have intended to stop blogging about 5 times in the last 4 years since I started this. It's a fair amount of work, and well...sometimes I wonder if anyone is reading it, or cares.
However, inevitably, just when I've convinced myself to close up shop on the blog, I run into someone who reads it and tells me that it brings a smile to their face.
And really, that's the goal.
Just a little outlet to make people smile.
STOP being shy readers!
Comment, share, email me.
So, whether I know you or not, if we haven't spoken in years, if we got in a big fight in 9th grade and haven't spoken since, if you are a family member who lives across the country, a friend of a friend, or someone who just stumbled upon my blog, you are welcome here! I am happy you are here!
Keep reading, commenting, and sharing. If there are topics you like more than others, let me know.
Turns out there's a lot of life that I self-filter because I assume you don't care. But maybe I'm wrong and you really are interested in the random house projects that I think up and force my husband to complete with me.
Or maybe you would much rather hear about our dogs (which I kind of doubt, I think I'm the only one who cares about that topic).
Or perhaps you like the pregnancy/baby posts. I've tried to keep them to a minimum so they don't takeover the blog, but maybe that's what you like hearing about.
Let me know!
I read this other blog...Joy the Baker....and she just wrote a wonderful post on how happy comments on her blog make her.
So to that, I say...ditto Joy!
