One thing that's weird to me is that, people swoon over celeb gossip blogs? I mean, I totally can agree with wanting to know what's going on & such, BUT if every blog you visit has the same shit on it...how does that become enjoyable? I see all these blogs that post the same things, and it's mad annoying. Whatever, though. I completely condone blogging anyways. I feel like writing in general is a wonderful thing, but if you write and can share it with other people- that's uber awesome.

Anyways, that brings me to one of my points for this post. A lot of people have been mentioning that they like my blog. I thank everyone who reads me. I thank everyone who reads AND comments. I thank you if you have me on your blog roll, if you've bookmarked me, followed me, RT'ed my link, and/or told someone about my blog. I've been blogging for almost a year now, and I have over 80 followers on my blog, and I just passed 300 posts. So, it's come a long way for me. But...that's what I don't understand. I have a hard time figuring out WHY people read me. Is it because I don't really blog about celeb gossip, that I blog about real scenarios, or is it because I have emotions in what I write? I know that everyone looks for certain things in a blog to be attracted to it, but I just can't pin-point the reason for my blog's popularity in recent times.

Whatever the case may be, thank you is all I have to say.

The other subject that I wanted to blog about was my grandmother returning home. She was in a coma for about 8 days. She went into the hospital on July 14th, and just came home today. It's been a very rough, very emotional time for my family and I. My grandmother does seem to be pulling out of the Spinal Meningitis that she had. If you guys don't know about Spinal Meningitis, it's a bacteria that you get that usually is fatal and leaves the brain too swollen to function. The nurse at the hospital said she had worked there for 20 years and had only saw TWO cases of this. Anyways, she's home. Even though she told the doctor she didn't want to discharge [insert eye roll here], she's still home. Thank you to everyone that was there for me when I needed kind words. Thanks to everyone on Twitter who prayed for my family when it didn't have to be any of their concern. You guys don't know how THANKFUL I am to know that there's people in life that really still do things like that.

All I can really say is that it's great to have her back home.

idk why PEOPLE read your blog, but i read your blog because it's personal. i like hearing about people's days, people's drama, good times, bad times. maybe an opinion on some recent events but it's just so simple!
