Sick day = blog post

Congratulations to you! I have taken a sick day due to possible food poisoning, which means you get a blog post! This post will likely consist of me rambling, but it is what it is.

(Time passes)

Soooo I've had this tab open since about 9 am. It's now noon. Clearly, I'm still figuring out this whole blogging thing. That and the simple fact that I am very scatterbrained sometimes. (For the record, I haven't been sitting here staring at the screen for 3 hours.) I think it's going to be easier for me to think about my blog as a place to share about things rather than my thoughts...if that makes any sense. Allow me to explain.

I could easily tell you that I spent the morning drinking Toms coffee while wearing my amazing Banded headband and snacking on my Graze box. It'd be a little harder for me to give you a run down of what I was thinking throughout the morning, and it also wouldn't be me. When I thought about starting a blog, I was excited to be able to share all of the "things" that I find while browsing the Internet. I didn't really plan to write about my daily life. For a split second, I think, "well who wants to read about the things I come across...people want to hear about life", but that's not always true. Many of my favorite blog posts are those with links to things. I love a good weekly links post, like REALLY love. On the contrary, some of my favorite bloggers are those who share about their daily life. I think it's like an opposites attract kind of thing. I don't care to share about my daily life, but you better believe I'm nosey and want to read alllll about other people's lives. (Fun fact: I'm a bit obsessed with the lives of celebrities too). I told you I'd be rambling...

Regardless, this brings me back to the post that inspired my first post, which I'm sure I'll find myself referencing quite often. There are two points in that post that seem to fit my current thoughts...

Just put your stuff out there. Somebody will like it. True fact. 

Don't be afraid of your own voice. It's the only one you have (unless you write fiction). 

I think I'll just leave it at that. Undoubtedly, a weekly links post will be coming soon...
