Why I Blog

Last night after reading about an event that one of my favorite bloggers got invited to, I told my husband I thought that was so cool. He said that for me to get an invite to something like that my blog would probably need to have a singular focus. Like I would have to write only about food or motherhood.

I don’t know if I would ever be able to do that. I love sharing my love of food. I love sharing the joys and things other than joy that parenting brings. I love telling you guys about all the pretty things that I find online. And even though y’all might be tired of hearing about it, I love writing about my obsession with bacon, traveling, and Doctor Who.

Although it would be super cool to be invited to blog-related conferences or events, that’s not why I’m writing this blog. Plain and simple, I’m writing it for me. It’s my therapy. Waaaaay cheaper than paying to talk to a professional about my crazy life.

My blog may not have very creative recipes, stunning photos, or tons of followers but it’s 100% mine. Everyone should have something they can call their own. One thing you do just for yourself. That thing for me is blogging. And I LOVE it.

What is one thing that you do completely for yourself?
