Why I Blog.

Honestly, I started blogging because of Stumbleupon. I discovered the blog Bye Bye Beehive and I loved reading about this girl's 365 day challenge. Then, I started reading her daily blog, Aunie Sauce. Aunie has a way of telling her story, even when it's just talking about fashion that I really love and she's such a nice person! Go check her out!! :)
Slowly, I got more into the blogging community by clicking on bloggers' buttons on sidebars of other bloggers and subscribing to them. Then I decided that I wanted to do this too. I have something to say.
Last year in October, I started a blog on I kept it a secret, because I was scared my friends would think it was stupid, so I blogged for me. It became like a diary. (Honestly, though, I also started because I was bored in class and I needed something to keep me busy, but that's another story).
I blogged almost every day until about February, when I drifted away and forgot about it. This summer, I blogged for the program and fell in love with blogging all over again. When I found out xanga shut down to update, I started this blog here (Blogger is solo much better, by the way).

So why do I blog? Well, the easy answer would be that I'm tired of Facebook, and Twitter doesn't give me enough space to write what I need to write. The truth is, I just have something to say. I'm proud of who I am and I want to share it with others. Maybe I will just be another voice on the internet. Maybe I will touch someone's life, help them in some way. Maybe I will make great blogger friends, and read/witness great things in their lives. All I know is that I have a story to tell. Mine.


  1. THIS IS THE BEST REASON TO BLOG! So so proud of you, Emilie. It's so evident that you've come a long way already and I love hearing what you have to say. It's beautiful ;)

    Thank you SO MUCH for the shout-out. This seriously makes my day.

  2. PS> Love that last photo of you... so cool!

  3. I love the chance that blogging gives me to simply tell my stories--the good and the bad, all of them! It's a blast, and I definitely don't want to stop any time soon!

  4. That's exactly it! We're human; we have good and bad days and we shouldn't be afraid to share them!

  5. Thank you!! :) That makes me so happy to hear! You're very welcome for the shout-out. You deserve it!

  6. Thanks! I just love the effect of black lights!
