Why do most people blog?
The real answer . . . Ok, there’s too many to even get started. Some blog as an occupation, some blog as a form of journaling, some blog to network their ideas, and then there’s bloggers like myself that just blog for a creative outlet and a way to share some inspiration. And somewhere and somehow along this networking journey you find yourself connecting to others. You find yourself becoming friends with people all over the world. I’ve had the joy and pleasure in actually meeting many in person and in doing so have become lifelong friends.
For me, the best reason and really the reason I continue to blog is the friendships I encounter along the way.
A few weeks ago I noticed that this amazing woman, Shauna @chicover50, whom I following both on instagram and her blog had posted something about living in Salt Lake City, Utah. I immediately sent her a message say something to the effect of “it’s so nice to know I have a fellow 50ish gal who’s crazy about fashion and full of life and joy living so close”. It didn’t take her long to respond and we couldn’t wait to actually meet. It was her idea to meet at our local Anthropologie and that she would love to bring along her camera and take a few photos so she could do a feature of a new friend. Ok, talk about one incredibly kind, genuine, positive, lady! And seriously her instgram feed is A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. but it doesn’t come close to the actual beauty and joy that radiates from this tiny little lady.
So the #1 reason I blog is to widen my circle of friends!
These are a few of the photo’s Shauna so gratiously took at our fun meet up. Yes, she is a professional photographer by trade.
Thank you my new friend for making me feel so loved.
