I Blog Because

This place is like a time capsule. 

Sometimes I'll log into my old live journal and die laughing at how ridiculous I was at such a young and confused age. And I'll laugh even harder at how angry I was. You truly wouldn't believe some of the things that are written in there. And sometimes I'll read entries of things that I was clearly very passionate about... but I completely forgot about. It's so awesome to look back on and see how much I've grown. In 10 years, I'll look through the archives of this blog and be able to relive all the things that I spew out now. 



Blogging is a beautiful thing. Blogging is pieces of your life stored away forever into one spot, just sitting there, waiting for you to reminisce on someday. Some entries will shine like diamonds and some will mirror things found in a landfill. Hey, they can't all be gems! Whether it be good or bad, I'm really enjoying documenting these days of my life. 

This whole blog land is like a second home. A place I come to so I can laugh, eat, cry, and enjoy life... with all of you. A place where I can release my anxieties and my excitements, and there's always someone feeling the same way, going through the same thing, having the same opinions, etc. A place where there's always a friend. 

Thank you for reading, thank you for commenting, thank you for celebrating with me and crying with me. You all help to make this blog land enjoyable and addicting!

  1. I go back and read my live journal every couple of months when I need to cringe. It's so hilarious to read about my life as a 15 year old so I know that in the future I will appreciate all this documentation that sometimes I feel is useless!

  3. I found an old journal from college and it was so crazy to read, some feelings were the same, others not so much. Some goals I wrote I still want and some I accomplished. I love being able to go back and read the changes.

  4. Such a perfect description! I always kept journals growing up and I love looking back and reading them...I know I will feel the same way about my blog someday (although to be honest some of my journal entries make me wince...SO embarrassing).

  5. This is a great post, and I agree with how looking back on old blog posts can make you feel - I find it therapeutic in some ways to see how far I've come (or sometimes, how far I still need to go!)

  8. I love have journals (I have no idea where mine are) and blogging to look back and reflect on. I see some of my past posts and cringe, laugh, or reminisce. I like how it is a documentation of my life and shows how I have grown as a person and in my writing.

  9. Dude, I found some old journals in my attic recently. I guess I brought them with me from CA when I moved. HOLY SHIT I WAS SUCH A MORON IN MY YOUTH.



    When I look back on my blog i might just be like "shit I was a whiny bitch".


    Love you long time.

  10. I agree that the community that comes from blogging is amazing. I also like how it provides a time capsule; it's raw and real and so amazing. :)

  12. That's why I love blogging too, because it is like a second home, it's comforting for me and when I need to breathe I just type away and I feel tons better. Plus, if it wasn't for blogging, we would have never met!
