One of the things I've learned since I started blogging is that people begin blogs for all different reasons. When I first started blogging I wanted to reach out to this awesome community. I wanted to find other girls who were going through some of the same things I was.
There is such a powerful community behind blogs. I've made some incredible online friendships, but the thing I like best is that I'm finally getting to meet some of these girls IRL (in real life).
Last night I went to my first blogger meetup. It was part of the H-Town Blogger Hotties group, and I had SO. MUCH. FUN.
I'm not going to lie, I was so nervous. I even told Tyler at one point that I didn't know if I was going to go, but I'm so glad that I did. I was instantly welcomed by the girls, who immediately said hi and asked where I blogged at. I love it. I love that they understand the power behind the community, and love blogging just as much as I do.
We spent the evening at Pinot's Palette, eating, drinking, and expressing ourselves through painting rather than writing for once. I am no artist, but my canvas didn't turn out that bad!
As we painted, new friendships were formed. And no one questioned you when you stopped to take five pictures of your canvas, they knew, it was for the blog.
My favorite part of the night was finally getting to meet Meg O. She was my partner in the very first blog swap I participated in, and I've been following her ever since. It's such a small world because now we both live in Houston!

So, that's why I blog. I love the friends I've made (online and in real life), and the incredible community in this blogging world. Why do you blog?
