I blog because...

This was my unplanned Friday night last week.  Sometimes you just have to step back from to-do's, from the get done lists, and get to having some extra fun.  It's amazing what a pitcher of bud light and some french onion soup can do to rejuvenate the soul.

I think lately about different things with blogging.  Why do I come here?  Am I doing it wrong because I don't X, Y, or Z it like other bloggers do?  Is it right that I do A, B, or C?  What about the content?  Is it a hit out of the park, a swing and miss, or is it completely overlooked?

These are all questions all bloggers face.  I know because we all talk about it and that to me is quite comforting.  The one thing I do know about blogging is that there is not one set right way to do this thing.

Whether you do sponsorships, or update about your weekend brunch plans, or link ups, or share a million pictures of your kid/dog, or product reviews----if you're doing it because you want to, then I believe you're doing it right.

Why do I blog?  For me, first and foremost it's writing, which is the essence of my being.   My preferred method of expression is this.  Being able to look back and recall different things I've felt pressing enough to talk about it here is my jam.  It differs post to post and I love that.

I also blog because I love the community.  The other bloggers who do their thing in this virtual land and have such impact on so many; the ones who endorse products and their dogs alike; the ones who share how to's and the ones who share hilarious what not to do's just based on personal experiences-ALL are rock stars! The beauty is: If it's being done because you want to do it, then everyone is doing it right.

As I am nearing a milestone in contribution to this Ohgabetta land, 300 posts, I suppose my reflection today is derived from that.  How did I get here?  Am I proud of what I look back on?  What do I want more of moving forward?  I gots some plans and thoughts.  The most common among them is to keep moving and keep posting.  It has a way of sorting out, that what needs more sorting.

Until we meet again,

Brunch so hard

We celebrated one of my favorite humans over the weekend.  My good friend Danielle turned 30 and we turned up, as the kids would say.  Ac...
