What Blogging Means to Me

Coming up on my 3rd anniversary of this blog -June 3- I sometimes can't believe it's been 3 years. Other times, I think, it's been just 3 years? Really? During these three years, so much in my personal life has changed, yet so much has stayed the same. In thinking of potential anniversary posts,  I've begun to reflect on what this blog & blogging really means to me...

A creative outlet.
A written voice.
A community of new friends.
A learning experience.
A humbling experience.
An exciting experience.
A source of inspiration for when I have none.
A pain in the butt.*
A time sucker.*
A reminder of reality.
A dream.
Just plain fun.

What does blogging mean to you?

* I mean these in both the good and bad ways.

  4. Congrats on the three year mark! That is amazing! Its weird- I'm not sure what it means to me at this point except that I'd probably feel lost without it!


    PS: I hope you can come to my event at Reiss on Sunday from 12-3! We're having tea, cupcakes, mini makeovers from The Loft Salon & Define Beauty and gift bags!

  5. my 3-year was in April and i missed it so I scheduled a post for next week.

    I agree with your entire list! I think it makes me more cognizant of the beauty around me and more reflective on the big and small things that make me happy. :)

    I like the "reminder of reality" one.

  6. love this post! congrats on taking this so far!!

  7. Hahaha, a pain in the butt :)
    Happy 3 years! What a long way we've come!

  8. Congratulations on 3 years!! I like "time sucker". What I wouldn't give to be able to write and publish a post in under an hour :)

  9. Congrats Jamie!! Inspiration is what blogging means to me! Keep up the good work and hope to see you soon :)

  10. I agree with all of these! And yes, blogging can be a pain sometimes...in the best of ways ;)

  11. Congrats, 3 years is a huge milestone in the blogging world. You don't look a day over 1;)
