I received a mean comment on this little blog the other day.
I'm not sure why someone would take the time to write hurtful comments, obviously not someone worth my time.
But the comment, or maybe it was the act itself rather than the actual words, really hurt my feelings.
It still crosses my mind in moments when I'm left with my thoughts.

So I just wanted to say thank you.
thank you to talented writers who take the time to blog.
thank you to less talented writers who do it just cause they enjoy it.
thank you to those who blog with pictures and no words.
thank you to those who blog with pure words.
thank you to those who blog for their families and friends.
thank you to those who blog to document their life.
thank you to those who blog to influence and inspire.
thank you to those who's blogs I'd honestly rather skim than read.

I think it takes a certain amount of courage to blog.
And I cannot knock anyone who takes the time to write their own words. Especially the ones who choose to share them.
Whether you do it well or not, I can't think of a better way to pass the time.
I truly think the world would be a better place if more people wrote,
and read for that matter.
You won't find me encouraging any of you to do otherwise.

I never claimed this blog was going to be worth reading. I never claimed I would make you laugh. I never claimed I would inspire. I never even claimed to be grammatically correct. And I never asked you to sit there and take the time to read me. Or even skim me.

But I appreciate everyone who does.
So thank you.


  1. I agree with you, blogs are peoples journals and things for their family to keep up with their lives. Or whatever they want their blog to be. I have enjoyed reading your blog, I found it through Jo's blog. I don't know if you remember me growing up in your ward, But that's ok. :).
