Tuesday ramble: Why Do We Blog?
Just finished watching “He’s just not that into you.” Great movie I thought. Total chick flick. Before I head to bed, I wanted to post one more thing that ran through my head while watching.
I read a post on Feline Fairy’s blog about why she blogs and it got me thinking.
I’ve been telling people I know about this blog and how exciting it has been for me to see it grow over the past month and a half. What I find hard to describe is why we – the beauty and makeup addicts in the world — are drawn together? What keeps us reading, watching and posting comments? What could we possibly talk about – every day? After all, for many who aren’t into this, it is ‘just makeup.’
I think it goes beyond that. Makeup is just what we like. It’s our common ground.
For me, what I really love is the sense of community I’ve found online. It’s really been an amazing thing to see how one ‘hobby’ can cross international boundaries, age groups and nationalities. The best part for me is getting to know people and having an opportunity to have a short glimpse into their lives – from those who follow me and post comments and those I follow through their blogs and videos.
One other thing, as a mom who also works full time, people are asking me how I find the time to blog. Truthfully, it’s often late at night after everyone’s asleep, on the weekends in between playing with the kids and hanging out with my husband. And yes, I’m often tired.
But I do it. And I love it.
Have a good night everyone!
