Day 1 - The Inspiration Factor

I'm sure you've all heard it at one time or another. Somebody says to you, "There is no way I would ever have time to blog." That drives me crazy. As if their life is so much busier than those of us who blog. I am sure they have a hobby of some sort. They choose to spend their time doing that, rather than this, while I choose to do this rather than that.

It's pretty simple really. We all make time in our lives to do the things we enjoy, be it blogging or reading, or shopping, or baking, or golf, or underwater basket weaving.

I really love blogging. It has become my favorite hobby. I don't make cards much anymore. I watch a lot less television. I would rather blog and read blogs. And that leads me to why "Blogging is So Cool." I feel inspired. Every day. To be a better me. To take stock of what's important in my life. I feel inspired to really live.

Yesterday, was a holiday. We didn't do much and it was perfect. I played Settlers of Catan with Jocelyn, snuggled with Lily by the fireplace, did a load of dishes and some laundry, and late in the day, checked some blogs. Lo and behold, the inspiration was pouring off my computer screen and filling up my so called "cup." See here, and here, here, here, and here. When I was through reading, I felt resolved to try a little harder to be a little better. That's a good thing.

That is just a sampling...a sampling...of the wonderful posts that you awesome bloggers share with us readers.

So, here at Passionista this week, I will be recognizing the greatness that blogging is in my life. So stay tuned.
