There's a couple things I never expected to come out of blogging.
If you read the ten thoughts I had when I first started blogging, I wasn't really doing it for anyone else. Just me. Which I still am, but there are different elements now. I never thought I'd have followers, people that actually wanted to read about my weekend and wedding planning (yeah right there's been no blogging about that). Even after I had followers I never thought people would actually comment about my weekend recaps where I did nothing but watch the Law and Order: SVU marathons.. Or even the other way around. I never thought I'd find myself reading other people weekend recaps because I like them as a person and just wanted to know what they were up too..
I never thought blogging would make me love twitter so much. Actually twitter and I have a love/hate relationship but that's too much for today.
I never thought I'd really make friends blogging. When I first started blogging I read a blog (twilight zone?) about how hard it is these days to make blog friends because everyone just wants to be the next big thing.. I don't have that problem here, but I could see how other "bigger" bloggers would be wary to let in an outsider or a newbie.
I definitly never thought it'd give me something to be proud of. A couple months ago, Roland text me and asked me if I'd blogged about anything "bad". After I told him no and asked why, he said he was going to show his boss my blog. After the sheer panic and terror passed, I realized that I wasn't ashamed of my blog... This is my corner of the internet where my thoughts (and rants and sarcasm) go. If someone doesn't like it, then I guess they don't have to read it.. but I should never be ashamed of my little home I've created here with all you guys, my blog friends.
