This week I'm linking up with Miss Monica over at I Heart Grade 3 because I've been pondering her topic of the week for months now, why do I blog? Or, in my case, why do I want to blog? So far I only have a few people actually following this blog (hint, hint!) but hundreds if you add up my Facebook and Instagram followers. So I'm definitely not doing this to win a popularity contest.
Personally, I view blogging as a creative outlet. And after all, writing is in my blood. No kidding...
Ever heard of the name Bobbie Kalman before? Yep, she's my mom's first cousin but I grew up calling her my aunt. I love her spirit, huge heart, generosity and laugh. I could listen to her tell stories all day long. I think it's a Hungarian thing. Did I mention I'm 1/4 Hungarian? Sadly the oral retelling gift that my Mother and aunts have was not passed onto me. I did, however, get a prominent jawbone and a vivid imagination so all is not lost.

And you see that styling book below from the 80s? It's dedicated to me. If you've got a unique name like I do, you'll know how rare it is to see your name spelled correctly in print. I still get goosebumps remembering how proud I was to show off this book to some
mean kids at my elementary school. Too bad it's out of print otherwise I'd send each of my followers a copy ;-)
|Coolest book ever in my humble opinion|
|Amazing read and visually stunning|

I can't wait to read about why everyone else started blogging too.
