To Blog or Not to Blog


Someone, let's call her "Bubbles", told me that blogging is somewhat phony because we all post fairly positive things. Another "friend" calls it Self-promotion. After stewing about this, I've come to the conclusion that that is one of the reasons I LOVE BLOGGING!

Blogging gives me a reason to look for good in my life everyday. It shows me the good in my friends lives and has opened doors to this small world we live in by creating friendships with those whose paths we never would have crossed.

Thank you, my blogging friends, for inviting me further into your lives. And to those of you I've recently come to know...I look forward to getting to know you better!

Let's just all post a "REAL ME" post and those will silence the critics eh? I love your blog...always happy and it makes me happy, it's happy YET honest and that is what I like. In fact, I want to link you if that's okay? I check yours everyday through Kami, so I thought I'd just put ya on mine...:)

I love it Beck, So true. I couldn't have said it better.

Please say I am "Bubbles", I always wanted to work at Fantastic Sam's and go by the name Bubbles. :)

P.S. I love "Let's Link!"

Brett says I need to get a life every time I am blogging. I tell him this is my "life". It is my only social life that is. I love it and yes it is fun to catch up with old friends as well as meet new people.

P.S. Did you take that picture of the bubbles? I must learn how.

I am addicted, it's true! I don't always post positive things-I post about everything! I love it and it has made me journal and take more pictures of my cute kiddos. I have re-connected with friends from my past and made new friends that I never would have had it not been for blogging. It is a good thing. I am obsessed though!

Remember this:
Bubbles are simply full of hot air. So what do I know about spider woman. Mom

I think "Bubbles" is probably just "scured" like I was to get into blogging...it can be time consuming, but so worth it! I also think that a blog mostly positive because it is there to share and who wants to be a Negative Nelly? Life is what you make it, might as well make it fun and cute when you can, right? Love ya Beck!!!

People stopped calling me Bubbles a long time ago...

I find bogging to be therapeutic. It helps me feel connected to others thru celebrating all of life’s challenges and success together. It provides a network of support that otherwise might not be available. I have to thank Blogger to providing a tool for me to connect with family that lives near and far and re-connect with long lost friends! I am so grateful for everyone who participates and encourage those who don't to join.
