Why Blog?

I have just read a really interesting post by Michelle Clement on her blog Scissor Quirk announcing her decision to end sponsorship on her blog and go back to the basics with her blog. Blogging when she wants about things that excite her rather than blogging because she has to.

Hubby and I were talking about this very thing this morning. How commercial so many blogs have become. I like a good prize as much as the next person but I also like to see people's real lives and real projects. I do not need a link to the shoes and cute skirt your daughter has on or a post sponsored by a multinational. 

I blog because I like to write. I feel a need to express some of the things that are going on our lives and I hope (if I ever get the time to craft again) to share some of the crafty projects I complete. If you are reading this you have probably stumbled upon this as I have no regular readers and that is okay. It gives me the chance to express myself without censorship and without feeling the need to pander to an audience.
I will blog if I have something to share. If not I do not blog. I just was not feeling it yesterday and so I did not post. Today reading Michelle's blog made me abandon the reader on my Ipad and hop straight on here to share. Before breakfast!

We have a busy Saturday planned. Scarlett has her weekly gym class this morning and then after her nap we will have our compulsory sushi lunch (it just does not feel like the weekend without sushi lunch on Saturday). I need to pick up tickets to see Kevin Spacey in Richard the third which I am super excited about. We might even get over to Novena and visit one of our favourite stores, The Little Wardrobe, and get Scarlett a couple of new dresses for the holiday season. I really will need a holiday after all that.

I hope everyone in Singapore enjoys the long weekend and a big Selemat Hari Raya to those celebrating on Monday.
