Why I Blog

This blog is small, but has turned in to something way more then I thought it would.
The timing of this post is perfect, because this week marks my "one year blogging anniversary" of Somethin' Bout a Truck and I love what this space has turned into for me.

First off, I am shocked that I kept up this blog for one full year.
I have started so many blogs and have quit writing after three posts.
This time it was different. I was writing for me.
And a few people started following along.
These mysterious bloggers turned into friends.

 One reason that keeps me coming back for more is the support, motivation, excitement and love that my friends through SBT have given me. This space is a space for me to be me, to feel encouraged and to never feel judged. A place where I can laugh, cry, vent, fail and be picked right back up.
This space exists because of all of you.

Sending Tiffany some hugs and love this week as she prepares to welcome baby Elliott.
Tiffany was my first "reader" on blogger and I believe we started our blogs right around the same time - I am so thankful for her! From her answering my annoying blogging questions to finding out she was expecting and watching her pregnancy progress - I am so glad to have her as a friend.
Can't wait for you and Cody to become a family of three.

  1. Ohh congratulations on one year blogging!! =) =)

  2. Thanks for the sweet shout out friend :D We did start out right around the same time! It's so crazy how fast a year goes.

  3. Congrats on the one year of blogging! I wish I could be as free as you are on your blog, but my family (who doesn't talk to me in real life), like to call to complain that I don't talk to them about what I say on the blogs. I'm still working on that.

  4. This community is one I never expected to find when I began blogging. It is amazing!

  5. Happy 1 year!! Keep it up girl. Blogging is one of the best things to ever happen to me :)
