5 Things I Love about Blogging

There are many things I like about blogging but here are my current top 5, plus 1:
5. Keeps me away from the trash on TV. Clarification: the television, not me.

5a. Keeping current with technology. Savvy social networking knowledge will be key when eventually re-entering the workforce.

4. Turning an every day event into a post. Makes me appreciate my life a little more

3. Being inspired

2. Trying to make up definitions for the captcha word verifications per Kelley’s Breakroom (even though I never win)

1. Meeting seriously cool bloggy friends

What’s your top 5?


  1. I think my top five reasons I love blogging are
    1. Capturing my life and events to have for the future
    2. doing so makes me appreciate it more
    3. connecting with so many cool people
    4. Getting inspired by others and their lives
    5. The chance that I might inspire or just make someone smile makes me happy.

    I have been a horrible blogger lately, life has just been so busy. Hope all is well for you and the family!

  2. I think your top five are great and I could easily substitute them as my own;0! For me I would say blogging love for me is:
    1. being able to connect and network with family and friends who live far away
    2. gives me a creative outlet and a "me" thing to unwind into.
    3. inspires me. Love browsing the blog world and taking in lots of ideas!
    4. ministry. Share my faith and be fed as well.
    5. Capture lots of special memories for my daughter for years to come!

  3. I have so many but here are my top 5
    1.Being able to meet other fun bloggers who share so many of the same passions I do
    2. Being able to write down all our memories and then dive into it whenever need be for a little pick me up!
    3. Allowing people to connect to us
    4. Sharing fun tips an advice I have learned through mommyhood!
    5.To have something for just me! lol

  4. I'm not sure if I have a top 5 but I will say that the top reason I love blogging because it's an outlet for my emotions. Whether it's bragging about the kids, grandkids (yup I am 39 and have 4 grandkids. Go read here if you care to see how that worked out: (haha shameless personal blog commercial there.) or if I am letting off steam when it comes to the hubs or maybe life happenings in general, I just find that I love writing about it.

    I have to say I love going back and reading what I wrote just about as much as I liked writing in the first place. :)

  5. Oh meeting cool blog friends is up there for me too! I feel like I seriously know all of you in "real" life! I also like the way I am able to journal my boys growth, funny moments in a much different way :) It's FUN! Oh and for my healthy living blog, I love being able to inspire and reach many women out there looking for change but don't know where to begin...I hope my blog serves as a tool for those women!

  6. Captcha balderdash has improved my enjoyment of the word verification too. I should remember to thank her for that!

  7. 1. Relating to others and not feeling alone.
    2. Getting lost in someone else's life for a little while.
    3. Possibly making someone else smile, think, or laugh when reading my post.
    4. Figuring myself out and rethinking through my posts. So self-reflection, I guess.
    5. The good feeling I get when I see someone started following our blog or responded to one of my posts.
