just some of the many amazing people i have met through blogging!
So raise your hand if you have ever pretended you don't have a blog in certain public situations? Well, I have done that... a lot. Well maybe not pretend I didn't have one, but not like to talk about the fact that I have one. Did that make sense? haha I guess I always find it a little embarrassing to admit out loud that I have a blog. I mean, it seems a tad narcissistic does it not? In a lot of ways, yes, it is. But I guess it is like any other social media network. It is a space online, that is all mine.
It is also a place where people can come to connect. This is my space where I document the daily happenings in my life, where I can be creative, where I can discuss and connect with other people. At the end of the day we all value, share, and relate to the human experience, and we can connect with that. I have always been a big people person, so the fact that I love to connect through social media should come as no surprise.
While this blog started off as a place for me to update my family on what was going on in my life in college, it has grown into a place I go to, to connect, to share, to document, and to be inspired.
I have always had a lot of friends, and have never had problems making new ones. So when I moved from California to Utah for college (not knowing a soul here) I didn't expect life to change that much. Sure I met some great people, and made some friends, but I hadn't made deep connections with people like I had back home. I guess I had been spoiled with some pretty amazing best friends back home (you know who you are!) and I missed those types of connections. You know, the laugh until your stomach hurts, tell each other everything, best friends kind of friendships and connections?
Soon blogging became my escape and outlet. Other blogs, my readers, and this whole community brought me joy during a time in my life where I felt I was missing those valuable friendships. While the transition of moving somewhere where I knew no one wasn't as smooth I expected it to be, I began to develop true lasting relationships through blogging - not only over the internet but in person.
I am so thankful everyday for the friends and connections I have made through blogging. You guys fuel my inspiration for so many things that reflect themselves in my every day life. If you read this blog and have never commented or talked to me, PLEASE send me an e-mail, tweet, comment, or anything saying hi. I want to continue to develop relationships with as many of you as possible!
These types of connections is one of the many things in life that brings me true joy, learning about others, meeting new people, and sharing with each other. I am thankful for a space to share and connect, and I am so thankful for the many friends I have met through blogging and that I know I will continue to meet.
Just, thank you. Thank you ALL :)
