It’s Wednesday and I have a question

When I first started blogging, i kept this little gem to myself.
i wasn't ready to share it with anyone.
Not at first.
I have always loved to write. Ever since I was a little bitty cutie pie. Loved it.

 But the idea that other people would read my writting… and possibly judge me?
That made me a teeny tiny bit nervous. 

So I  started blogging,  and it came so easy. 

its nice when you can write something and make yourself laugh. i do it all the time. 

Slowly I told others about this little blog of mine… mom, dad… family.. {deep breath} stone.. old college roomies...friends... random door men...
And now, 6 months later… my little bloggie has really kinda grown. 

I have friends tell me all the time that they read my blog. 
Even friends I haven’t talked to in years.
  I’ve run into old acquaintances at bars or restaurants  who have randomly mentioned they read it.
and this all makes me smile. inside and out


i'm curious to know what do you like about my blog (if anything)
and what would you like to see/ hear more of?

Isn't it kinda weird knowing people you don't know read what you have to say?! I think it is. Scared me at first. At the same time, it's brought some people closer, and overall this blog community is an incredible place.
Love your blog girl, because it's so open, fresh, and just so full of life!!! :) It never gets boring! Yay!!!

Have an absolutely terrific day.

i was the same as you! didnt want to tell any friends about it or anything at first. I still dont even talk about it to certain people who i think will judge me but i am definitely not as secretive about it as i was before!
I lovee your blog chels! I dont think you need to change anything :) xx

I like that you share little bits of your life at a time... and you say it in a way that's enjoyable to read.

You are definitely funny, but I don't know how to explain why. I just like you. Can I just wrap it up neatly with that? "I like you. That is all."

I just love how your posts are short and quirky. Some people feel like they need to write a book, and it isn't always necessary!

I drop little hints about my blog to friends and family, but I haven't made the full "Come read me!" leap yet. One day!

I started out the same way! I don't have a ton of followers, but so many people tell me they read my blog.. even friend's of mine have their co-workers and their freinds reading it.. it's crazy. I started mine to just write too, I've always loved it and it's a release for me, to write.. and I crack myself up too when I write.. and sometimes I think I'm the only one who thinks I'm funny. :-)

Write for yourself first! But just keep is fun to read! :)

I like your blog a lot. It's a daily read, obvi! I think what you're writing about now is awesome. Some people stick to certain topics EVERY DAY, like food, weddings, their kids...and while that's awesome and all, I like variety..and you've got variety girl!

keep doin what your doing! :) or i'll DE-FOLLOW YOU! muahahahaha...just kidding I wont :)


Jennifer Louthan said...

I love reading your blog b/c it makes me feel like I'm visiting with one of my besties. (And then I feel creepy b/c we've only hung out like, once.) But I think the part that I like most is how you know how fabulous you are and put that into your blogs....or maybe that you remind me of me. ;) Keep it up girl! Your blog is the only one I read on the daily!

It's very funny when others start reading your blog and the talking to you about it later.... and you're like "What, you read my blog?" It makes you feel famous. Haha, well, at least it makes me feel famous. I like everything you post... keep doin' your thang, girl.

Shalyn said...

You are sooooooo funny and REAL! I can tell that the way you write is truly your personality and I LOVE it. You are NEVER boring, which is a plus! Keep doing what you are doing;-)

Justina F. Lee said...

I'm just curious, how do you make your blog public to your friends?

Do you all use facebook to promote your blog?

I'm not sure how I would be able to get the same kind of viewership as you all do.

From this blog, I just want to read whatever is on your mind or whatever you wish to talk about.

Cathy said...

only my fiancee and my best friend know that I have a blog, I'm not 100% sure if i want all my friends to know, but if they find out its nbd.

I find your post's cute and entertaining and I love reading them!

Ashley said...

I like your sense of humor! I would have never found your blog, if you hadn't commented on one of my post...which of course led me to yours! I enjoy reading :)

Alycia (Crowley Party) said...

I am always surprised when I find out certain people who read my blog that are in my life or people who I haven't talked to in years! its a crazy fun small little world :)

Thomasina said...

I enjoy reading your blog because you're fun and witty. And because you always have something good to say.

I just stumbled upon your lovely blog today and at first glance what I can say I love the title of your blog...happiness is key! :)

I also like that you said you love to write, I do too and that is why my blog started along with my love for fashion, but at super affordable prices and now I love being able to go back and see how it all evolved over time and began too! :)

I hope you are having a Wonderful Wednesday and congrats on how much your blog has grown...isn't it exciting! :)

Liesl :)

I am with you--- I just started out writing because I loved it, and it was a nice place to keep memories and it has blossomed! Love it, -- and the thing I love about your blog? Just you and your stories because they make me laugh too :)

Maggy said...

Isn't it SO bizarre when random people say they read it? It always catches me off guard! I love reading stories of people's lives, it's fun to feel like you know someone from their blog :)

Michelle said...

I LOVE YOUR BLOG!! I like what you post and how you write. You are one of my favorite bloggers!!!

I started blogging for fun, too... it still makes me a bit nervous that people I know in real life read it!! (Like my future in-laws!)

Megan said...

I don't think that you need to change anything, Chels!! I just LOVE your blog!! I haven't told some people about it either. Just my close friends, family, and husband know.

LCR said...
