I received an email today from a guy in New York wanting to "buy into" my blog. What that really means is he wants the rights and wants to put ads on and whatever and basically turn it into a for-profit blog. As I got to thinking I realized that, that decision alone would change the entire feel of my blog. I politely turned him down.
The reason I blog is because I love it. I love telling the story of my life. I love being candid and letting people see what "real life" is all about. I don't want to have to write when I'm not feeling it. I don't want to have to make stuff up just so it fills my obligation. Everything I write on this blog is real, candid, and how I am feeling that day. I write for my readers, my friends, my associates, my family, and mainly for my husband. I write so I have an detailed description of this beautiful life I am blessed to live.
I see so many "Mommy Bloggers" who fill up their pages with ad's and that's great for them. It's just not my thing. I started this blog on my own, and it will stay on my own. I'm not tech savvy, and I don't know how to do all the cool little tricked out things to blogs, but I don't need to. The point of this blog is to express my thoughts and views, and let you, the reader, connect with a real person. For you to see that you're not the only one that has struggles or hard times or goes through "real life". There is a girl in Utah, who loves you for you, who has up's and down's just like you, who hates her life some days, and loves her life the next. I am real, and this blog shows every real detail about me. That's what my readers deserve and need. They don't need to know what dress is on sale. It's not that kind of a blog.
Thank you to all of you amazing readers who enjoy my crazy, twisted ride through this life. Thank you for your acceptance and love. Thank you for prayers, your thoughts, and patience, and your kindness. I couldn't do what I do without each of you in my life. Your emails and messages mean more to me than you will ever understand. You are amazingly beautiful people, and I feel honored to have you in my life and call you my friends.
