What is a blog and what is it for?

I was accused once of blogging for self adulation and self promotion....but that's not it at all, in my eyes.Self-promotion and self-adulation..... Self-promotion is the art of spreading ideas, concepts, and a greater vision. Self-adulation is just the promotion of accomplishments, deeds that have already been done.
Hmm, maybe I leave it up to my faithful readers...I am not sure what I am guilty of?

I feel my blog is a way to let my friends and family know what I am up to, what has been going on in my life..I also love to share new ideas and concepts. I have always kept a diary since I was 16 years old ( I am now 46), I used the old hallmark yearly calendars to keep track of things, I have them dating from 1982 to 2011. I feel my blog is my diary now, only it has no lock, you are free to read along and see my daily activities.

You can learn from my mistakes, gain knowledge from my travels and experiences...I love my blog and all it and I stand for.

Peace, Love, and Happiness, is all I ask for in this screwed up, messed up, world we call earth.

So, as another 24 hours passes by and another day gets chalked up to history,

I ask you what have you done today? Have you made a difference in someones life today? Have you done the right thing?

I feel I have done all I can today to make it a good day, I told my husband that I love him and we are so good together, I taught my grandson to dive for quarters in the pool and that new york is far away and oregon is up the coast all along the ocean, using the quarters as a guide. He made 2.00 and I hope I taught him a little about the united states.

I also learned that life is short and you better not waste one single minute.If you think I am lying, please go ready this blog post: For Mikey!

Oh and after you read that post,  I may not be making a peanut butter pie but I am making something special for a friend who survived a bank robbery last friday, thank the lord for sparing the life of our friend Andre, he is such a nice guy and such a big hearted family man, he has 2 beautiful little daughters he loves so much!

Thank you to who ever is responsible for today and letting me blog about all that I did today... It is my honor to type away, And to all that read it, thank you for taking the time, to read my thoughts and my cares and my actions.

Oh and Thank you for today.....I really enjoyed it!!

For Jennie and Mikey:

Beautiful post, Chica...REALLY! I started my blog as a way for my out-of-town parents to keep up with what I was doing...I don't care if ANYONE reads it - I do it for me and them, really. In fact, I have been meaning to get rid of the numbers counter on the followers portion...making a point to get that done this week, now!

Hope your day is wonderful and you pack lots of love into it! I know you will.

What brought this on? If someone said something to you, why didn't you just tell them to shove it where the sun doesn't shine!

I blog 'cause I was told to - no one in my family reads mine so it wasn't for my family to keep up with me - they don't care!

Just keep on blogging, "Happy Chica".

Mom's know best...I started my blog because you told me to and now I use it to keep my family and friends up to date with me AND a business tool. Thank you for turning me on to the world of blogging.

I tried to get my followers counter removed, and it turned into a huge nightmare, so it's back. Those numbers don't mean a thing! I was SO sad after reading the Mikey blog...what a strong woman that is! Carry on, Chica!
