Sucked into the world of blogging
So here I am 22 years old. Single, still in school, and still living off of my parents (which I really appreciate mom and dad). Recently I have been sucked into this world they call blogging. I always saw blogging as something that only married couples and families participated in. Us unmarried, single, low-lifes have to stick to facebook until we say "I do." I blame my friend Ashley P for this new obsession. At first it started off as something for me to look at and be amused by while I worked at the computer labs on campus. Occasionally I would check out the blogs of my friends and read about their lives since mine is so boring lately. Well then a couple weeks ago, it became the first thing I did every time I jumped on a computer. I would go directly to blogspot.com to check out friend's blogs and start reading of their funny stories and check out all their new photos. Then I would move on to their "followers" and soon enough I would be on someones second cousin's, brother-in-law's, older sister's blog. ENOUGH I said. This is pathetic! I realized that I can't live waiting day by day to read about my friend's lives. It is like waiting for Santa to come and it is only October. DREADFUL! So a light bulb came on in my head that maybe I should just join in on the madness and I should use my time that I spend "stalking" and make my own blog. So that is how this all began. But see my blog won't be funny or anything like that, but it will be a way for me to use my time and not always spend my free time on that second cousin's, brother-in-law's, older sister's blog. So maybe blogging is the NEW facebook. I think that it is something that everyone will eventually join and as people say jump on the band wagon. I mean they even have books for sale at the bookstores called 100 Essential Blogging Resources or Blogging 101. Really! So it is a phenomenom that is taking off among computer users. And what can I say, it hooked me!
