Today I’m participating in the Red, White, and You link up and finding some awesome new blogs to follow. You should definitely go check them out (after reading my blog first, of course…).
My blog in three colors:
–read (as in books)
Friday’s post (sometimes posts) is a book review. I’m an English teacher and lovers of books. LOVE them. I’m always reading something and enjoy sharing my thoughts on books (and hearing yours if you’ve read the same thing). One of my favorite parts of blogging is when someone emails me and let’s me know they read a book I recommended. I love the conversations that come from those posts.
–white (as in my pale skin in pictures)
This is not a fashion blog by any stretch of the imagination. I just happen to wear clothes when I go out in public and sometimes I happen to take pictures of outfits that I wear in said public. And then if all the stars are aligned and there are a couple pictures that don’t make me look ridiculous, I’ll post them on my blog. I’ve lost count of the number of outfits posts that didn’t happen because I look cross-eyed or my husband forgot to mention my skirt was sideways.
blue YOU (where I write cool things about myself and leave out the weird, gross things)
People blog for a million reasons (like so people will email them to talk about books), but if I had to say just one reason I blog, it’s because I love words. Writing helps me makes sense of my day, my family, my thoughts, my God, my goals, and my mess. I work it out here, in words, so that everything else just functions better. I’m a (really big) work-in-progress and words help me figure myself out. And if that connects to people, awesome. If that just means I’m writing to myself, that’s okay too. But I love that words (and pictures, if they turn out) help us see each other in different, better lights. Because I’ve met some really awesome people through blogs and their words help me figure out what I want my words to be.
And that’s me, Mary, and what Trusty Chucks is all about. Also, my favorite color is green. I just felt like that should be in here somewhere since we’re talking all about color.
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you stay a while.
