lions and tigers and blogs

Yesterday's comments were so good. If you get a chance, you should go read them. I was fascinated to hear what people thought about affiliate links, sponsored posts, and generally the business of blogging. 

It really inspired me to think about what kind of blog I want this little thing to be. Sometimes I get embarrassed posting my weekday wardrobe, or my diet, or my thoughts....it's exposing....but then I have days like yesterday and I remember why I started blogging in the first place.

This blog has introduced me to some pretty fantastic people all over the country, some that have become life long friends and some who became so close they were at my wedding. And  I have friends who I haven't met yet but love anyways....friends I know that if they lived in LA, I would be obsessed with. 

Plus, I have this fun little journal that has captured every year of this decade. And all of the small stuff. All of the stuff that you forget, I have stored by month. It's invaluable to me, which is why, week after week - I keep at it.

All in all - I'm really thankful for this blog, I really like this"blogging world", and I really really love getting to know the people that read my blog - so thanks for spending some time here with me.
Pursue your dreams...


  1. I completely agree with your post from yesterday and have really noticing myself following more a "real" crowd of bloggers. I'm not one to do outfit posts without something being wrong aka a hair out of place or hamper in the background. I think its refreshing getting to know people for who they are- not just surface and what things appear. I especially love finding out about all the things we have in common! Hope you have a great weekend love!

  2. I think that is why I continue to blog (although a little more infrequently now), also. It is so fun to look back last month, last year, and even years ago to see what I was doing! We tend to forget so much and this is the perfect way to document it. :)

  3. Cheers to your blog!! Love it!

    I think I started to feel like my blog "wasn't enough" lately... but who the hell cares, really?

    Also, too many people that I see frequently have found it. And that's just scary. GULP. Naked and Afraid.

  4. I just found your blog! I'm loving it! And I 100% agree with you - I would SO MUCH rather read "real" blogs than blogs where folks consistently post to sell. Keep it up! I look forward to learning more about you! :)
