Why I Blog

I've seen a lot of posts recently about the purpose of blogging and why we do it. For me, it's been a way to keep track of a life changing experience that not too many American's get to have. I look back at the evolution of my blog, growing from a way to keep in touch with friends and family to an opportunity to meet new friends around the world.

I love that I have a mixture of readers from different periods of my life. Wherever we end up living for rotations or residency, I think I will be excited because chances are I will know someone from college, or a Ross spouse, or there will be a blog friend nearby.

Getting involved the blogging community was a way for me to still feel connected to the outside world, even from a tiny island. It helped me stay in tune with what was happening in America and find friendships with people from all across the globe.

Moving forward, I want this blog to be a connecting point. A way to keep in touch and to make new friends. I want Priceless Adventure to be a diary of the highs and lows and everything in between. I want to look back in another two years and again be so thankful that I kept track of our daily lives.

A lot can happen in two years, and after all..

I feel the same way! It may not be an island, but Alabama feels as secluded as one. With blogging, I'm still able to be social, make friends, and keep up with trends and fashion.
I'm glad you will continue..can't wait to see what's in store. Where are you guys headed next?

I used to be a bit embarrassed to admit I was a blogger, now I'm so proud! I feel like I have an elite membership to an incredible country club filled with bloggers! I love meeting people and connecting through writing. Lots of love!
