Get Back to Blogging & Jump-Start Your Blog: Day 5--Write About What Blogging Means To You

I have decided that I need to put some "fire" in my blogging.  So for the next 5 days I am participating in the SITS Get Back to Blogging & Jump-Start Your Blog event.  Each day will be a different topic.  I welcome your comments and really look forward to them!  (Comments are the highlight of my day!) 

I want to thank the sponsors at Standards of Excellence, Westar, and Florida Builder Appliances who are helping the SITS'ers make Back to Blogging event even better.

Also, if you are not familiar with SITS, check them out!  It is a wonderful group of women bloggers!  I have met some of the most amazing women bloggers who inspire me every day!  The best part--they love commenting!!  Come and join the SITS'erhood....

Day 5:  Write about what blogging means to you.

Trying to find out what blogging means to me has been an on-going experience from the time I wrote my first post.
Blogging is a way for me to chronicle this crazy thing we call our family.  I find blogging a way to show that we are no where as strange as any other family.  It's in the comments from my bloggy friends that I find acceptance of our frugal and fun ways bringing so much joy to us!
I love meeting new people.  With blogging, I have been able to met all types of new friends. They are friends that encourage and laugh with me.  And most of all...they leave me comments! 
I love learning new things.  It's amazing what you learn from people who live in different places around the world!  Even though we are all different, I am amazed at how much alike we are! 

I love the fact that we can all support each other!  Sometimes as a Mommy you feel like you are the only one that has these crazy things happen to you.  Over and over I see that we all face a lot of the same things with work, family, kids, and Hubbies!  No matter how much we are different, we are there to give each other the support and laughter to make each day bearable and just plain special!!

Blogging just makes me happy!  When I sit down to write a blog or read other blogs, I can go to different places and forget the craziness of my day.  I can support a friend or just laugh my head off or give my opinion on a hot topic!  Blogging is my time!  It's time that I can do what I want to do and be the person I am.

Will the meaning of blogging change for me?  Over time, it probably will.  Right now, at this time in my blogging career, this is what blogging means to me!

  1. I think over time, the meaning will change, but the principals will stay the same. The support we give each other, the exhilaration we get from comments, and of course the point of your blog - joy in Frugality.
    Keep on truckin SITStah!

  2. Those are some great reasons for blogging. It makes me happy, too.

  3. Hmm, tried to leave a comment and my browser crashed. Hope it works this time :) I love all the friends I've made through blogging - I had no idea before I started my blog what a great community was out there. Without that, I don't think I would have kept at it.

  4. I love your blog and how you share little things around your farm. I think you are a fabulous writer.

  5. I really enjoyed this post! It spoke so true to many of the reasons I blog and what I love about it! I never expected to meet such an amazing network of people through blogging, but I am so happy I did. I love comments too!
