We are over halfway through with The 2015 Blog-tember Challenge! I've enjoyed having prompts given to me, but I will be happy to get back to my normal content! I missed yesterday's prompt and was so sad because it was one I was looking forward to! Today's is important with the expansion of the blogging world, and don't forget to check back tomorrow for my next post!
Day 16: The real you vs. the online you. Are they the same or different?
Everything I post about on this blog is real--none of the content is ever made up. None of it is ever staged--as in, we don't go do anything just for the sake of me having blog content. (Well, when I start posting pictures of our house next month, you'll know I made sure everything was clean and in its place beforehand!) I write about things we go and do or recipes I make or random posts that are on my heart.
So I definitely think the real Sarah and the online/blog Sarah are the same. With that being said, I am careful about what I blog about. I'm not comfortable blogging every single detail of our lives--and I know people don't care ha! At this point in my life, I'm not comfortable blogging about the hard things that go on--the low blood sugar episodes that Dustin has, our disagreements, or a bad day I had. And I don't for see that ever happening.
I use this blog as a scrapbook that I'm going to be able to look back on in the years to come and remember our lives the way they were. I love looking back at my posts from when I first started blogging (a year ago next month!!) and I remember how much I was still obsessed with our wedding. I love looking back at the posts when we started building our house and seeing how it transitioned from an empty lot to a house I'm sitting in typing this right now :) I write this blog for me and my memories, but I appreciate the people who read along! It's so encouraging when I run into someone who tells me they enjoy reading my blog--so thank you!
