Why I started blogging

For Talk To Me Tuesday this week, I thought I'd ask you the question, "Who or What was your inspiration to start blogging?" This is what was over at tipjunkie today.
Well I have only been blogging myself for a little over 2 months. There have been a few blogs on home decorating I would look at every now and then. But when my friend Amber started her blog last year, I was over there everyday. It was so fun to see all her crafts, cook up some of the recipes she shared and even got to share in her joys of Motherhood with her. It had been 9 years since we had been neighbors but through blogging it brought that fun relationship back to life.
I wake up everyday with the itch to either make a craft or card, decorate something new in my house, cook up a tasty dish and enjoy my family life to the fullest. I get lots of inspiration from other blogs and I enjoy sharing the fun creative things I do.
Blogging is a little more fun than a regular journal to me. It's fun to add the pictures so easily. And it's easily shared with those you love.

My thoughts exactly! I find myself wanting to do more around my house, redecorating, making it more cozy, etc. And that is all due to the wonderful blogs I visit. Great post!

Well said! I am so glad you did start a blog, because it's so fun to drop by and see you! :) Blogging has been one of the best things I have done in a long time, and it's so fun to get to know others and find new crafts, decorating ideas, recipes, so forth! :)

Have a fabulous day! :)
