I was thinking about that today...and I really am not sure if I know the reason...other than it is neat to look back and see what has happened since I first started blogging several years ago.
Sort of a diary perhaps...not really, I used to think no one read this blog, now, I know better :) So nothing scandelous or crazy goes in here :) But just things that happen in my life.
A good thing about the blog has been all the people I have met through it :) I am not, by nature, able to just go up to people and introduce myself and say HI I AM LORETTA! WHAT'S YOUR NAME!?!?
Call me anti-social...call me shy...but I just can't :) If someone introduces themselves to ME, I am good to chat and talk---and talk I do :) I just don't normally make the first move. But the blog has really helped with that. People DO come up and say howdy :) Thanks to all of you who have. I know many more people now because of it. And many of you also know, once I know you, I never shut up :)
I'll admit, having people come up to me and say "IT'S EVEN! How is she doing??" really creeped me out when it first started happening, as if my brain freaked out and screamed "YOU DON'T KNOW THEM!!! RUN!! RUN AWAY!!!"...I of course, didn't (Andy said it wasn't proper and I would embarass him) but it took some time to get used to someone knowing me without having ever formally met me. Now I am very comfortable with it. I think this blog has really helped me come out of my shell :)
It has also helped me see how things turn out for the better, looking back, how the future happened, how life just goes on...and that going with the flow normally is a good choice!
I have had some hard questions answered for me in my blog, people have come out and helped me with training issues on several occasions, which I am very grateful for. It is always nice to have another pair of eyes or ears that I can bounce ideas off of.
I enjoy reading other people's blogs, because, lets face it...we are all nosy :) I love to see what others are thinking, training, taking pictures of. You find people with similar thinking as yourself, and others that think nothing like you. And you LEARN...information, thought provoking entries, and sometimes just really funny shit, the kind that makes you laugh so hard your stomach and face hurt for days :)
You see how much people really care about their dogs, how sick and twisted some people's minds really are (and how much you find that amusing...which...what exactly does that say about yourself?)...and times you see what things people are going through that are not so great, and you give support...and in return get that support back. Ten-fold...
So...completely out of curiosity...why do you blog?
