Why I Blog....
Originally, I started my blog because I thought I was funny.
I also felt like I had stories and experiences to which people could relate.
Originally, there was no focused or real reason.
When we moved to Nebraska and now Michigan I blogged for our extended families.
We live far, far away from them.
We miss them.
I know they miss us.
So, I would blog to keep them up to date.
Also, in the past I have LOVED getting caught up or staying caught with old and new friends.
Sometimes I would get bitter that they weren't blogging (or commenting)...so why should I?
I wanted to keep up with them.
I wanted to laugh at their fun pictures.
I wanted to cry over their hardships or frustrations.
And I wanted some feedback...mostly on how cute my kids are, how awesome my husband is and how totally hilarious I am!
I also used to blog because, again, I think I'm so funny....
and I have superior opinions...
and, again, I have stories that others can relate to...
and I like to try new things...sometimes...
Well, I still think all that and I will still blog about those things.
But, I'm going to try to blog for our little family.
I love that I have this record of our family.
And barring a total web meltdown, where all blogs are lost into a cyber black hole, this is a permanent record with pictures!
Where else do I have anything close to this kind of a record?
Sure there are holes.
But, maybe there will be less if my focus is on my little family instead of focusing on all the other stuff.
The other things still matter (extended family, for sure; comments, will always be welcome), I just think if my focus changes, I will be more consistent and the other aspects will just take care of themselves.
My goal is once a week...at least!
Why do you blog?
If you used...why have you stopped?
No judgments...just wondering if I can relate and for sure I could probably learn something from you about how to have better intentions or a better focus....not sure with which I am struggling.
