Be a Friend

You have to be a friend to have a friend. I was thinking today about how beyond exciting it is that I have 31 followers on this blog. Yes, I realize 31 followers isn't a lot but when I started this blog a year ago, I had 0. So it definitely brings a smile to my face when I think about how far I've come.

If you give a little, you get a little. I've noticed that the more I visit other blogs and the more I comment and encourage, the more people visit my blog. Maybe that's common sense but I've been patient this year with my blog slowly growing and a ton of incredibly generous people that don't know have been commenting on my posts lately. I've definitely been reaching out to various and random bloggers as of late -- and in return getting blog views -- but I'm still blown away by the kindness in the blog world. Haha. That sounds so weird but I feel like I've made friends by blogging. One post leads to another, and one blog leads to another. I find new blogs to read everyday and it's like a hobby. So much fun. And no, I don't know these people at all but I feel like I do. I live their lives with them through their blogs. People love sharing their lives with others and even more than that, people love when others enjoy it. So I'm really feeling thankful for all the people who have been visiting my blog. It's fun to watch my stats, see where you're from, and figure out how you found me. Thank you bunches. You are the most awesomest. :D


  1. I love blogging. I haven't been blogging that long on this site but on the other site I blog with I've been there for 7 years. I've made so many friends and followed them through their lives. I call them my blog friends and I feel like they are apart of my life. It's definitely a give and take sort of relationship though. :)
