26. Get Five Friends to Read My Blog

Yay! The first thing I can cross off!

Confession: I’m not new to blogging at all. In 2001 I TOTALLY had a LiveJournal. Except the only people that read it were a handful of people from high school. I didn’t go out of my way to tell people about it. I remember there was a ton of LiveJournal drama in ninth grade…someone found a girl’s LJ and printed entries in which she expressed her true opinion of some of the kids at school and brought them in to show other students AND administrators. I did not feel the need to get involved with that.

Of course, nowadays I’m not chronicling my trip to see Zoolander in theaters and what stupid thing the class clown said. I’m also smart enough to not post stupid stuff on the internet. But still, I feel really vulnerable sharing my blog with people. I know blogging means that I’m putting my life on the internet, but I don’t want to share EVERYTHING. At the same time, the only way to get people to read this is to tell them I’m doing it!

My Home Friends! (4)

My Home Friends!

My Home Friends!

I find myself writing about “my home friends” a lot. I have quite a few friends from home, but this is a special group – Ashley, Kristy, Elissa, and Julie. I met them each separately – Ashley in Kindergarten, Julie in Girl Scouts when we were six, Kristy in chorus at MHHS, and Elissa in theater camp when I was eleven. Eventually everybody became one big, happy family. We’ve had a group text going ever since the last holdout came to the light side (read: bought an iPhone) and I sent them the link to my blog. I feel like they’ll have some good (and possibly illegal) additions to The List.

My Big and My Little (2)

Little Little, Little, Me, Big

Little Little, Little, Me, Big

While we may boast that our favorite activities are drinking wine and judging people, my big and my little are two of the most supportive people I know! Biggle even has her own blog¬†AND said she was considering starting her own list! I’m sure they will have some wonderful additions to The List…even if they are bit crunchy for my taste! (Wink, wink!)

Who Else?

Well, I emailed Mackenzie Horan since one of her goals was to inspire someone else to start a list (although there are hundreds now!). As for actual, real life friends that I plan on specifically reaching out to? It’s hard to make a solid list, but telling the first six wasn’t as hard as I thought it was going to be…hopefully the next six and every six after that will be just as easy!
