1. I started my blog because I wanted to write more than what could fit on a FB status and not feel like I was "spamming" people.. and because I missed blogging. I like the ability to go back and see what happened, although now I use the blog less as a journal and more of a documentation of things that have happened.
2. One thing I love seeing on other blogs real life stuff and photos. LOVE photos. Rant: I HATE seeing sponsored posts.. I'd rather read about how your kid pooped this orange broccoli monster than see how you got something free for a company and you're talking about how great it is..
3. Something I love about blogging no one usually blog about the same thing. Yes, you might have a million photography blogs, but the pics aren't the same! Sooo much variety!
4. A favorite blog post of mine is probably my thoughts posts from when I was moving from Bahrain. I just left open the blog page and would come back to my computer as thoughts hit me throughout the day as I was going through my stuff. Sometimes, its just nice to be able to put all those thoughts out there and remember how funny they were later on.
5. Something my friends in real life know about me that I've never before mentioned on my blog is I was a pretty big tomboy growing up. In fact, I have even peed outside with my cousins standing next to me before. Everyone had to turn facing opposite directions (since there were boys and girls), but it was much easier than having to go all the way back to the house!
6. My new favorite blogs to read are "connected" blogs. Like, when many people link up and do a photo a day type thing, or even the Fill in the Blank Friday idea. People also connected up for those as well.
7. Some things I tend to avoid doing on my blog are using real names. Some people care more about their privacy than I care about mine, so I came up with Teh Nickname System so that way I can talk about people in my life on the blog and their identity isn't necessarily revealed. Most people that I've mentioned like their nicknames, which is good because I usually aim for their nickname to describe them in some way, from my perspective or initial thoughts on meeting them.
