I'm uber busy today. But I had to take a sanity break before blue pens found their way into the eyeballs of innocent passersby who I'm most certain would question why the need for blue ink in the legal world? To which I would calmly shrug and say "Weird, I know, right?" and go about my day.
So during my brief and much needed sanity break from the Chaotic and Complicated Business of The Law, it's time for:
and today's question brought to you by the fine ladies at Confessions From a Working Mom and The (Un)Experienced Mom is...
What are the Top 3 reasons why you blog?
Excellent question. Let me think...*taps cheek thoughtfully*
3. Sanity. I've already used this word. Three times. Count if you don't believe me. Sanity. Now that's four. Sanity sanity sanity sanity sanity sanity. What number am I at now, huh? ...maybe the sanity thing isn't working.
I love blogging because, like any other normal (haha normal, me, normal hahaahahaah) persony figure, I've got all kinds of words and thoughts and junk just sort of roaming around my head like fireflies (don't you hate that song?) on a hot summer night. They need to be released from the trap that is my mind else there will be firefly poop everywhere. And everyone knows what they say about firefly poop.
...actually I don't know what they say about firefly poop.
2. Learning to write. Yes, I am one of the myriads of blogger people who want to make it as a writer. When I started this humble journey two years ago, it was on what is now the social outcast known as Myspace. And it was fun, churning out crap like my Ode to Laundry and writing about the first time I used a lawnmower. And amazingly, people were saying things like "you should be a writer!". All three of them. I know. I was so overwhelmed. And so what if one of them was my mom. Shut up. She's got good taste, all right? *deep breath, calming down* So I thunk to myself one day, you know, I should just start up a blog as an experiment, just so learn how to write.
And that's what I did. So I write and learn. Rinse and repeat.
1. I know I should say something about friendships, because it's completely obvious that I'm a total copycat and that's what everyone else is going to say. BUT I'M NOT. HAHA. GOT YOU.
Seriously. This is so true:
I know I'm supposed to say really zen-like stuff like I only write for me and don't need to know if people are reading yada yada blah blah but you know what? Apart from the stylish word zen, that's really just a pile of crap. Because I love comments. I love to read what you think. If you laugh. If you sniffle. If you are grossed out. If you also love Janice the Muppet. I love getting to know you fine readers through your comments. And I'm trying super hard to comment back, so you can feel the lurve.
