i never thought blogging would...

-make me click Publish on posts of me saying and doing crazy things that everyone can see.
When I say make me I do mean it in the I-had-no-choice kind of way. Blogging does that to you. It gives you no choice but to share embarrassing stories. It gives you no choice but to click that Publish button. It gives you no choice but to say HEY INTERNET WORLD, COME LOOK AT THIS CANDID PHOTO OF ME WHERE MY MOUTH IS OPEN AND THERE'S A DROOL STAIN ON MY SHIRT. Let me go ahead and ruin the fun by telling you no, I have never posted a picture of myself like that but yes, I am sure there are many pictures out there of me just like that. 
Like these, for instance. Oh wait, I just shared embarrassing photos of myself. Blogging made me do it. My B. 

-turn me into the kind of blogger that has the awesome yet strange social media based friendships with so many people.
I wrote a whole post here about how we live in a wildly weird blogging world. A Wonderland of Blogging, if you will. I know your name. I could pick your face outta a big 'ole crowd of people. I know you like chocolate chip banana bread, but hate eating regular bananas. I know you went apple picking this past weekend and even ate some of the apples for breakfast, lunch, and dinner every day. I know you got your haircut and I even know your every day make-up routine. 
But do I reeeeeally know you?

Hashtag: I don't care because I still love you. And I still call you my friends instead of my bloggy friends. And it confuses everyone around me

-take over my mornings. And evenings. And every thing in between.
On an average day I...
Read my blogs. Feel behind if I don't get to all of them during some point of the day. Think about when I should next post. Think about something about which I could write. Go back and forth on recently thought-of topic. Ask Ricky or my mom or a friend if that sounds like a good idea. Mooch off of them for better ideas. Sit down to write. Get distracted reading other blogs. Go back to writing. Decide not to post for tomorrow. And finally...read some more blogs. 

All in a day's work, my friends, all in a freaking day's work. On some of those average days I manage to do some other things, as well. Like life and work and stuff. 

-turn me into a winner.
And no, I don't mean that it turned me into a winner at life (even though it did, obvi), but I mean a winner of giveaways. Winning is f-u-n. My best friend won a bike from Wendy's once and I mean if that's not making it in life then shucks, I don't know what is. But I have won a Home. T and a return address stamp so I'm making it somewhere in life, that's for sure.

-make me a millionaire. 
Spoiler alert: It hasn't. I never thought it would and I don't expect it to. The End.

Linking up with Helene/Taylor and Karli!

There are so many things I've done for the sake of blogging ha ha! Not to mention all the crazy looks I've gotten for taking so many photos of things. Great list :D
