From Blog Hater to Blog Lover

by Katie on July 14, 2010

My guest blogger today is my fantastic little sister Meggie. Meggie is going to be starting her second year at a big State University this fall and was lucky enough to witness the epic Poop Walk this past spring. She agreed to write a guest post for me despite the face that she does not even blog. I’m actually trying to encourage her to start a blog because she would have a very funny and witty take on the life of a college student. Enjoy!
When my sister first told me that she had started blogging, I thought to myself, why would you ever want to put your personal life out there for a bunch of strangers to read. Then, when she asked me to start checking out her blog I didn’t keep my thoughts to myself, and told her that I was a busy college student that didn’t have time and proceeded to let it slip about how I hated blogs. As it turned out it didn’t take long for me to change my mind.

As I’m sure you all know when you are a college student you will do anything to avoid the piles of homework and hours of studying ahead of you. I was surfing the web one afternoon early this spring and getting bored with my usual go-to site, Facebook, and decided to check out Katie’s blog just to see what it was like.

As soon as the page was fully-loaded I had a huge smile on my face because staring right at me was one of the many pictures Katie posts of my completely lovable and adorable nephew Drake. I kept scrolling down and looking thru old posts and was very impressed with what I saw. That same afternoon, I realized blogging was much more to many people than I could have ever imagined. I also realized what a great way it was to be able to see how my nephew was growing and changing since during the school year I rarely got to see him.

Since then, I have a whole different perspective on the blogging world and it is rare if I go a day when I don’t check to see what’s new with the Sassy Silly Spunky Momma and give even give her my daily vote….and who knows maybe one day I will even start my own blog.

I think it is only a matter of time before you start your own blog….it's a wonderful way to stay in touch and hone your writing skills, all at the same time. Jackpot!

I know what you mean, though! There's enough stuff to read in college, why just add to that list!

🙂

But I'm glad you are a good sis to Katie!
