Stay True

Blogging is very personal. 
The reasons we blog range. When starting out as a blogger (I use that phrase loosely), I just wanted to write. To express myself. To share my world with those who aren't close enough to see us often. Write to clear my mind and heart. Some of those reasons still exist, while I've branched out and grown a bit, too.
One person may write about family, while another writes about health and fitness.
One might write about heartbreak while others write about their plans of marriage and the perfect wedding.
Someone may share their love story, while another may blog about losing a love.
My point is...we are all different. The most important thing...let your blog be a reflection of YOU.

There are NO guidelines or rules. Anything goes.

You want to have sponsors? Have at it.
You want to have a giveaway every day to bring folks to your blog? Great! Give til you can't give any more.
You want to write about what you would do with 7 minutes in Heaven with Ryan Gosling. WRITE AWAY (with as much dirty detail as you can. Pictures would be appreciated).

You want to participate in nothing but link-ups and giveaways? Why not? They are a great way to get to know other bloggers. 
One of my favorite Dr. Seuss quotes sums it up nicely...

Always, always, stay true to the reasons you started blogging in the first place. 

This is my family's piece of the internet world. Where I can share my every day joys of being a wife and Momma. A place to just be myself. Where I can bitch if I want to, share my ridiculous attempts at crafting and try to keep it as real as possible. 
After all, it is my space.
