For starters, I began to wonder why it is I actually blog? I first discovered blogging in a magazine article in March of 2009. I began reading several blogs and thinking it was a pretty neat thing. I really wanted a way to share our life with family who were so far away. This would be great. No more emailing pictures. Just a simple post and everyone could see what we have been up to. I was good to go.
Once online, I then began hooking up with other homeschoolers and reading their blogs. Seeing what others wrote about, I thought maybe I could have something great to say or a cool project to share. I even have gone so far as to write up a weekly schedule as to what each day I should post about. I was going to be a predictable blogger.
HA! That is not happening. I thought, slow down here, I am stressing myself out about blogging???? No way, it would feel too much like a job. And in my opinion I already have my perfect job....being mama. And feeling like I had to blog was taking away from the fun. Plus I was sitting at the computer way too much.
So I am slowing down and am back to my original plan. Blog to share our lives. Although, now instead of only family, I am sharing it with friends....old and new. And, maybe every once in awhile I will share something great, but I am O.K with just a simple post.
