What I Love about Blogging

When I saw this week's theme, my mind immediately made a list of all the great things that I love about blogging. I don't really have a great story in mind. My history of blogging isn't really that long. All I know is that I have found a great community to be a part of, no matter where I am at any time.

For the past few years I have been searching for a hobby that would fulfil the need to create something, be a part of something, be proud of my work and share the work that I have created. Blogging has fulfilled those needs. I love so many things about blogging. Here are just a few.

I love that I can blog morning, noon, evening, night or all of the above.

I love that I have found many friends that I would not have found without blogging.

I love that I can brag about my children without anyone rolling their eyes.

I love that if I say something that you don't like, you don't have to read on.

I love that I can edit my words if I feel as though I have inserted my foot into my mouth before anyone hears (reads) them.

I love that if you say something I don't like, I don't have to read on.

I love being a part of the meme's, carnivals and blogrolls.

I love that I can be myself without anyone judging me (and if you are judging me I don't care because I don't know about it)

I love that, in my mind, blogging is an alternative to housework. Good thing the theme is what I love about blogging, not what's good about blogging.

I love that I can be a Christian Women Online, Thirteen Thursday, Wordless Wednesday, Family Friendly, Blogging Chick, Christian Blogger!

I love that my children will be able to look back on this as a chronicle of their lives.

I love that this is not only a diary of words but of photos and pictures that touch my heart.

I would like to say thank you to the blogging community that has welcomed me with open arms so quickly.

I have to admit, I, um, avoid a lot of housework too through blogging. But mostly its for the self-expression and the relationships.

That about sums it up!

I am jealous that you can blog morning noon and night, tho.

I can't blog at work, but I still think about it.

(We should all share pictures of our neglected housework.)

That would not be a pretty picture.

Hey, not only do I hate housework but we are going to be moving in a month. Nobody wants to see my house right now! Maybe I'll get brave and post some toward the end though. Balance My Chaos. Chaos.
Can't Have Anyone Over Syndrome!

I agree with everything you listed! It really is great to be part of the blogging community!

I too hope my children can come back and read my blog, its a really great piece of information for them!

Kim, I was template hopping after reading Michele's post and the one that's my favorite is YOURS! I couldn't remember "whose" it is, but I knew it was so distinctive, I didn't want to copy it :). Ditto to much of what you said--off to go love up on my husband so he won't feel neglected;)

So many good points! I love the 2 about being able to not read if you don't like it. Glad to see that goes both ways and is not insulting! Great posting! Wonderful share!

Happy Sunday!

We can blog with in our pajamas with dirty hair. LOL. Except for those people with webcams. What is up with that?

You hit the nail on the head - I am thinking the sense of community is the one thing. Plus, I can see all my friends without leaving the house!
