Holy Blogger Batman!

You have all heard this saying...

God could not be everywhere so he created mothers.  

How sweet and nacho cheesy.  I would like to add some more cheese with that order (that will be an extra $.75 please)

God could not be everywhere so he created bloggers.  

Oh yea, I went there.  I put bloggers on a holy pedestal and I am not backing down.  Bloggers are no longer the ugly-step-sister of the writing world.  Blogs are legitimate sources of humor, advice and information that rivals any public library (sorry dad).  We put ourselves out there, vulnerable, alone, cold and desperate for attention (a bit dramatic, but effective).  We share the intimate details of our naughty kids, our love of girl scout cookies, and our hatred of swimsuits.  And for what reason?  To avoid housework?  Yes, maybe a little.  But it is mostly to unclutter our minds  and to validate our existence.  What better validation is there than she who comments and supports our insanity.  Our insatiable need and love of comments keeps us blogging day after day, week after week.  If comments were calories, we would all belong on that ship in the movie WALL-E.  

Now I know what you're thinking.  You're thinking, "Wow, she must have been at this for years! She is so plugged into the blogging world and what we are wanting and needing."  Well, I have a surprise for you.  I have only been blogging consistently for 6 weeks.  When I started blogging again, I knew I wanted to get on the fast track of the blogging underbelly.  I wanted to find women like myself.  Voila!
I found and joined the Lady Bloggers Society.  I immediately had places to go and blogs to see.  I got free advice, new friends and the of course lots of comment validation, which is their middle name.  Please go check it out and tell them I sent you.  



When you arrive there you will immediately feel cool and appreciated.  And isn't that what God wants for all of us?

Seriously. I find myself talking about blogging all time, and referring to fellow bloggers as if everyone knows them.

Non-bloggers think I am crazy.

But I'll tell you what. I don't know how gals were SAHMs before blogging. There is only so much Little House on the Prairie a gal can take (my MIL talks about how she watched it every afternoon and folded laundry. BARF!)

And besides that, I love ya (my grandpa says that all the time) new blogging best friend.

I am Harriet said...

I'll check it out. Great post.


Stopping by via SITS to say hello.
Enjoy the rest of your day.

I always get scoffed at when I talk about blogging. But I love it. So bite me!
I have met a whole bunch of awesome gals out there that I never would have found otherwise.

*standing ovation*

Well done!

I've always said that if we were truly blogging just for ourselves, we'd be keeping a diary hidden under the bed.

I'm an attention whore... I'll admit it.

(Hello from The Society, by the way.)

Saimi said...

Well said, so true, and couldn't agree more!
