Why blog?

Fabric I purchased at The Busy Bees Quilt shop in Linton.

The other day I read this post over at That British Woman's blog...and I thought it was a good topic.  I would love to hear everyone's reason for blogging. Or write your own post about it.

My first post was May 30, 2007... I started out to encourage myself to take more pictures to post, and also do more quilting to have to share on here.  Hence the name Pics & Pieces.  Photography and Quilting.  My mom and her friends called it quilt piecing...I don't hear that term any more.  If anyone says it, it is me.

I also started it to have a record of my days...though I don't share everything on here.  I wish I had the nerve to share more.  Though I guess I share enough...maybe more than people want to hear when everyone is getting sick.

I found people I love to visit...and when I have been away from blogging for a bit, I usually go back and see what they have posted in my absence. One or two blogs I have went back and looked at ALL their posts.  And there are more that I would love to do that with, but just don't have the time.

I just simply love seeing everyone's world...there are blogs I visit for their photos.  There are blogs I visit to read.  Some blogs I would visit whether they have a photo or is the reading material I go for though I do enjoy their photos--they are so interesting to me I would visit photos or not.  Some I go to for the reading, and the photos.  I would visit whether it was one or the other cause their photos are interesting without the stories behind them. And the words would stand alone, too.

There are one or two that provide comedy relief...

I also have a long list of quilty blogs I visit...two or three I visit almost daily to see if they have posted, but I do have a separate folder of quilt blogs I visit maybe once a month...and I just go back through till I come to a the blog post I seen last.  I seldom comment on these blogs...not even sure why.  I will come nearer commenting if they don't have many comments.
I not forget my granddaughter...her mom and I and Papaw love to click on the label Lorelei Rose and then just sit and go back through time and see how she has changed. We don't do it every week, maybe not every month...but we do do it now and again and enjoy it.  Sometimes we go back and just watch the videos.

There are more reasons I blog, but right now these are the ones prominent in my mind.
