Who do you blog for?

I blog for myself.
I know that people out there that stop by & take a peek to see what's going on in Erin's life & by default my life too. It's a great way for my parents to keep up with Erin. I have friends who want to know what's up also. However, as nice as that all is, I do it for ME! Some days are great so I want to write it down. Some days are horrible so I need to write it down & get the frustration out of my system.
I'm basically a "call it as I see it" kind of person. That isn't always the best way to be, but I don't know any other way to be. That said, I certainly don't want to offend anyone, but, again, I blog for me!
So. Who do you blog for? Do you really want to watch what you say or would you prefer having the freedom to say what you want, when want to?

I pretty much say what crosses my mind...and you get to see how nutty that is some days. But, I find it therapeutic to get my thoughts down. It may be a serious post or silly. It all helps keep me sane....or as close to that as I am ;0)

I blog for many reasons, mostly so Kerri has a record of her life with us. I wish I could remember or have memories of my childhood, and considering her first ten months are an unknown to us, I want her to someday look back and know how much fun we had growing up together!

Although I started it as another way to record our life story, I now blog for myself mostly - I've found it to be therapy! You've seen that there are quite a few entries that are not exactly just the happy stuff! Some days are not always so great, but, hey, that's all part of the story, too!

I blog for me as my journal...there are some things I keep private but it is a way for people to see what I am doing and what I am up too. I think of it as therapy time!
