Question 14: Why I Started

Asked by Sell party of (who is fun, silly, sincere and kind!)

Why did you start blogging?

I originally started blogging back in 2005 to share pics of my kids with my family and friends. I also wanted to print off my blog into a book to give a copy to my mom and keep one for myself. Over a year ago my husband was looking into some police jobs and I figured it would be best if I made my blog private. Like everyone knows, once your blog goes private your comments get cut off. People just forget to check.

I realized then, that I really craved that interaction and socialization, and quite frankly I was at a point where I was excited to start making new friends and decided to start up a blog where it was about anything I wanted to talk about, instead of like my other one that is mostly just updates on the family. So thats why I started and ...kept going I guess. :)

(Oh yeah, and don't forget about my cake decorating contest. In case you can't get your hands on a book but you still want to participate you can find the first six chapters of The Dark Divine online at The Romantic Times (Ch 1 starts almost at the bottom of the page) and possibly pick something out of that to decorate with!)

I was the same as you. I lived in Iowa, far away from family and friends, and I wanted a way to stay caught up with them. Then I realized I wanted even more than that, so that's why I started blogging.

2005 - you've been blogging for a long time!

I started blogging because I wanted to make people pee their pants. I might own stock on Depends. :)

I like the social interaction, a creative outlet, writing & such.

Heck, even though we were in the same ward we didn't become friends until blogging!

Well, however you started, I'm glad you're still here!

I like both of your blogs. I think they're both so fun! :)

2005? That's awesome! I didn't start blogging until fall 08, but haven't looked back since.

I blog for a creative outlet, to spur on my writing goals, and to meet peeps. It's always an adventure!!

You really were ahead of the game, weren't you?

aaah, thanks for answering my questions!! =)

I'm glad that you started blogging, because we became friends!!

Part of me wants to start a fun, public blog. I just want to stay up with my private family one too. So I'm torn because I probably don't have time for both. I love reading both of yours though!
