Thursday Thirteen #4

Thirteen Reasons Why I Blog:

1. I've made lots of new friends- people I really consider to be my friends even though I have never met them.
2. Reading other people's blogs makes me realize that the stuff I go through and the feelings I have are normal.
3. It's a great way to keep family and friends updated with what we've been up to.
4. Everyone else is doing it.
5. I have learned a lot about computers and a little bit about html code.
6. I can express my opinions.
7. I'm making some extra money with my blogs.
8. It distracts me from worrying about things I should probably be worrying about.
9. It keeps from going insane as a stay at home mom with no one but a toddler to talk to all day.
10. Blogging is a great way to learn from other moms who have already been through all of the various stages with their children.
11. It's cheaper than therapy.
12. When Hailey is older she'll be able to look back and read all about herself as a child.
13. I'm addicted to blogging and will start to twitch if I go without.

#2 is definitely true for me too! I love meeting new people around the blogsphere and literally round the globe. Happy TT

pjazzypar said...

All of these are great reasons to blog. I totally agree with # 1. I have made some friends blogging as well. Happy TT.

Sandy Carlson said...

This list is probably universal! No. 1 speaks to me. Bloggers are good folks--even the cranky ones!

Greatfullivin said...

Great list. #1 is so true for me :)

Zulkijora said...

Malcolm said...

1, 5, 6, 8, and 13 on your list would make mine too. I have to say that the best reason for me is #1. Through blogging, I have started friendships with people from places like TX, CA, and Canada.

Regina said...

Hootin' Anni said...

Yep, yep, yep!!! #4 for me too.

My 13 this week is just thirteen new headers I made if you'd like to drop by and take one or all. They're free. lol

Nicholas said...

I agree with most of those, especially #1. It's astonishing how genuinely fond one can get of people one has never met and probably never will.

The net, especially blogging, is making the world shrink.

Sandee (Comedy +) said...

Yep, I was nodding my head to the affirmative and you got to #13 and I laughed out loud. Yep, that's me too. Have a great TT. :)

Natalie said...

Denise said...

Susan Helene Gottfried said...

I so understand the feeling of needing to be around adults!!

Blogging's just fun, ya know? Ultimately, that's why I do it.

So true, so true. Although I have been blogging less and less lately (so I can sleep and eat). It feels rather nice. :)

YummY! said...

#11 for sure! I used to kepe a paper journal for the same reason.

Lori said...

Great list....love it! Happy TT.

Gray Matters said...

You are so right on with this list - it is definitely cheaper than therapy! Good job.

Angie said...

Love your whole list! I would add for myself that I am recording the happenings in my family -- I had a year's worth of postings made into a book. :)

Linda R. Moore said...

Absolutely right! Of course, I met my hubby online (long before blogs existed) so I'm biased. ;)
