{Why We Blog} Week: Why Christin Blogs

Hi, everyone! I’m Christin, and I blog over at Classy, Southern Wife. I write about everything from running to fashion, cooking and married life. I hope you’ll stop by sometime.

The “Why I Blog?” question is always a hard one to answer. Honestly, I started my blog as a Pinterest board of sorts (long before the days of Pinterest) to share wedding inspiration ideas with my mom. I only gave her the URL and didn’t think that anyone else would follow along. A few days later, I got my first comment, and from there it spiraled into what it is today.

I’ve always loved writing, which is a huge reason why I blog, but I also love “meeting” other bloggers, whether we actually get to meet in-person or just become friends through comments and e-mails. The blogging community is such a supportive place, women offering each other encouragement and advice. 

As a late 20-something, it’s not always easy to meet other women who share similar interests, but blogging helps bring us together.
I’ve met wonderful women who have become dear friends. In fact, a blogger friend is flying to meet me at a race next month so we can run together. I’m so excited to meet her and share a couple hours of pounding the pavement together.

Blogging is much more than putting words on a webpage. It really is a community, whether it’s your community of mommy bloggers or fashion bloggers…we all have our passions, and blogging helps put us in touch with one another.

I came across your blog because I really enjoy reading Christin's Blog. I blog because it allows me to give consumers a glimpse of my life on the farm and where their food comes from. Plus, I love fashion and turquoise so it isn't always about cows!
