All About Me Month: Why I Blog

Hi everybody!!  I’ve decided that there are some things about me that just don’t fit in with my regular type of blog post (i.e., recipes, decor, holidays, etc.), but I still want to share them.  Therefore, I’m declaring September my “About Me Month”!!  This lets me share new things about myself and also gives me something extra to write about!  To kick it all off, I’m going to share with you exactly why it is that I blog.  This is going to be pretty short and sweet…

I would like to say that there is a totally altruistic reason that I do it all, but the truth is that it was totally my ego that go me into this!  Just like at least half of the bloggers out there, someone, at some point, told me I was a good writer and should start a blog.  So I did.

I’ve met some interesting characters.  I’ve made a few pretty good friends.  I’ve explored my creative side and I’ve recently discovered that people actually make money with this blogging thing.  Considering that I left a 10-year stint as a Flea Market Assistant Manager and an almost 2-year stint as a Visitors Center Receptionist to be just about anything but either one of those two, that making money thing is looking better and better!  Blogging is definitely a lot of hard work, but I can’t say that I regret it.  I also can’t say I will be giving it up anytime soon.  : )

Whether you choose to do it as a hobby or a career, blogging is one of those things that you have to constantly learn and evolve with.  There is always something new and it never gets boring.  Honestly, I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up, but blogging is just as likely as anything else!

How about you…why do you do what you do??
