I do. Lately I’ve been reading my own a lot. Mainly to look back and remember fun times and look forward to the times to come. It kind of helps me get inspired when I’m on a dry run. Posts like THIS and THIS help rekindle the excitement and inspiration I have around this time of year.

The leaves are changing which is different for me. Growing up in the OC there aren’t seasons AT ALL. In fact it’s normal for it to be pretty warm all the way up to Christmas sometimes. I’m sure the seasons in the bay area are still mild compared to places like NY, but this little tastes of Fall is special to me.

What are your favorite posts on your blog? I’d love to read them =)

  1. Totally. Sometimes I cringe and sometimes it helps me remember where inspiration came from.

  2. I do too! I’ve been journalling online since 1999 (believe it or not) and all of my old stuff is on the wayback machine. I go back and read them a few times a year. I was in high school then. It helps me remember where I came from, among other things (like how small the internet was then!). Hee.

      Wow you are definitely a blog veteran. I was in Jr. High at the point and blogging was furthest from my mind lol! That’s so awesome.

    Absolutely! I love reading (and re-reading) my own blog. It inspires me for new posts, and it is fun to look back. Sometimes I think to myself I can’t believe I posted a certain post, but most of the time it is nice to look back at the memories. It is like my online virtual scrapbook.

    It’s hard to pick an all-time favorite post, but I relly love my Strawberry Picking post and my Apple Picking post. It’s way too hard to pick a favorite recipe post! (I’m such a huge food lover!)

    I rarely take the time to go back and read through old blog posts, but when I do I love it! It’s one of the reasons that I started a blog in the first place… to capture the little moments, and the big moments, in our life. It’s such a treasure!

  5. thats an interesting idea actually! i dont think ive ever read my own blog. my favourite ones are those that get discussion going and have lots of comments of ppl sharing their own story. these are on the popular posts column of my blog :) Mandy @ http://www.makemeupmandy.blogspot.com

  6. That is so funny that I ran across this post today. I was JUST re-reading some of my own posts yesterday and loved it. Like you said, it’s fun looking back and reminiscing! Love your blog.. I’m your newest follower :)
