I know sometimes people get caught up in the world of mommy blogs and baby blogs and followers and give aways and competitions and voting ...blah blah blah. I love my followers! I don't even really like that word. Friends makes more sense to me. People who like the same things I do, who like to read about my boring and sometimes hectic life. People who like the pictures I take. My family and friends.
I blog as an outlet to the outside world. With two babies, no car, no job and all my friends hundreds of miles away, I blog for a connection.
I blog to keep my family and friends, a thousand miles away, up to date on my ever changing children and this new journey my husband and I have embarked upon.
I blog because damn it, I have stuff to say. I have opinions. I have things to say that don't have anything to do with being a mom.
I blog because I love meeting new people. I love reading about how other people do things and to learn different perspectives on life in general.
I don't take this as a quest for popularity or a place to make me feel better about myself. I ask for votes and participate in competitions not for popularity but for opportunity. Believe it or not, I don't want be a blogger my entire life. Believe it or not, I'd actually like a job someday doing something I love. Writing. Photography. Copy Writing. Editing. Fitness.(I'm working on that part) The more people that see my blog, the greater chance I have of finding something I love.
Well, that's that.
Why do you blog?
