Finding the Blog-Worthy Moments

Ever since I started blogging, every moment in life suddenly becomes blog-worthy. 

After I tell friends a funny story about, for instance, driving with some friends from work to a Zumba class at a gym that doesn't exist anymore, the first response I get is "that sounds like a blog story". Every time I eat or cook something, I either grab my camera or, if I don't, regret when I'm done that I didn't capture the pretty food. Every event in my life is always followed by me wondering how I'm going to blog about it and most of the time I'll even start crafting the narrative in my head and quickly have to jot it down on a piece of paper or in my phone so that I don't forget.

I think that, while too much focus on blogging about your life rather than living it can be a problem, everyone could benefit from thinking of their life as a story. In seeing beauty in the small moments and finding fun and interesting ways to share your stories. Even if it's simply writing them down in a personal journal, sending someone an email, or starting a blog of your own. 

I guess this explains why yesterday morning when I made myself a fabulous looking egg and cheese bagel sandwich, instead of sinking my teeth into it right away I had to snag a few photos. 


  1. I do the exact same thing! Except, I almost never take the photos and then am regretting it later. I started carrying a little notebook with me in case the muses hit me with a good blog post idea.

  2. I do the same thing! My husband will ask me if I'm gonna take a pic of just about everything b/c I do just in case it ends up as part of a blog post. My food pics never look nearly as good as yours.

  3. Balancing what to blog and not to blog is the key to good content. You have great balance. We all need to turn it off sometimes and keep some things for ourselves. Wonderful photos Brenda! Have a great weekend darling. dawn suitcase vignettes xo

  4. I totally agree with Dawn -- you have such a flair for posting about just the right things. I love your honesty and humor! Plus, this sandwich looks pretty dang tasty.

  5. I know my husband thinks I'm crazy because I'm always doing that!

  6. I don't know what I did before my iPhone. Now I always have a camera ready. I can even make the picture look better (if it's a bit fuzzy) using Instagram. I take photos of everything.

    Now I'm hungry. :)
