The Gamer & The Blogger {Why I Blog}

My husband is a gamer and I'm becoming a blogger. We each have our own little niches to keep us busy. Of course I think my husband is a huge nerd sitting on his headset playing with a bunch of 12 year olds {there are probably more adults than I care to know about though that play video games so lets pretend they are all 12} but at the same time he thinks I'm a nerd and doesn't understand me talking to a bunch of ladies I've never met and calling them my friends. Some nights that is our life - he kills zombies and I blog about it.

I am so fortunate to have many real-life friends but in the recent months I've made some awesome blogland friends who I wish I could meet. I'd like to welcome all my newest readers joining me from the Simply Clarke Giveaway; I'm so excited to be part of my first giveaway and super pumped I get to be part of it with some pretty awesome fellow bloggers! {Enter Here}

What I want to talk about today isn't my husband killing things on Call of Duty {because let's face it that is already annoying enough} but instead: 
Why I Started Blogging.

Let's see I've always enjoyed writing. When I was younger I kept journals, which are Hilarious to read now but it is interesting to see how I've either learned from mistakes or kept the same best friends. I love documenting my life through pictures and social media {to an extent} I want my great-great-great-grandkids to know what I was like and what better way to get to know me by reading about how I lived my life. In a nutshell that is why I started blogging, to remind myself what happened on a daily basis and to have something 20+ years from now to look back on and think 'that was SO dumb' or 'wasn't that the best day ever'.

I started this little blog venture in 2011 after my {now} Husband and I got engaged this was going to be our family blog but of course I knew Steven wasn't going to contribute. My posts were few and far between and I took many 'blogging vacations' ... I've since given my blog a facelift and renamed it in hopes I would blog more. Has it helped? I think so, well at least I am posting more and exploring new blogs and all I can hope is people are exploring and enjoying mine too.

Why do you blog?? Let me know and link up!

  1. Yay for blogging! I started when we were abroad last year, but not on my current blog, Postcards from Rachel. I had no idea what I was doing and didn't network at all. I didn't even realize there was a community of bloggers out there! Then I ditched that blog and started a new one last July!
