Jumping on the Blog Wagon

Oh the pressure of The. First. Post.

All that empty white space just waiting to be filled, and the questions begging to be answered:

Why am I writing a blog?

Do I have anything worth writing about?

Why would anyone want to read about my life?

Let me answer my own questions.

(I love it when I can do that!)
  • Why write a blog?

b/c keeping a journal of any sort is a great idea & a blog is just a 21st century version of a journal.
b/c having a place to share my hopes, dreams, frustrations and fears or to simply reflect is healthy.

b/c I love to write & used to be pretty good at it. I miss writing for creative purposes.
b/c I want to - & that should be good enough.

  • Skipping to question #3 - Will anyone read this?

Maybe yes, maybe no. It shouldn't really matter, but it would be nice. I'll just write whatever is in my heart, on my mind & happening in this journey called my life; and if I pick up a few hitchhikers along the way, well I say the more the merrier.

  • Back to question #2 - Do I have anything worth writing about?

The answer to that is a little more subjective based on your outlook. If you're 20 & living it up as a single girl starring in your own version of Sex & the City, then probably not.
Let's face it - my life is not exactly glamorous. I'm a mom with a 4 yr. old boy and a 2 yr. old girl. My days are spent fixing meals & cleaning house, changing diapers & little people clothes, wiping noses & hiney's, reading The Belly Button Book and watching Phineas and Ferb. (hey don't knock P&F!) So how can I write a blog that celebrates the Magic of Ordinary Days? Because even though the details may be ordinary, may not seem like magic, this is:

and this is

pure magic.

  1. Love it! You will be surprised at how inspired you become to write blogs and when the inspiration hits you. I write blogs in my head at the most random times and have to find the time to put them on screen. Happy blogging!
