Yay! I love birthdays!
It's not really "my" birthday though. Well, it is in a way, I guess.
Today is my blog's birthday. One year ago today I did my very first Introduction post.
I've got to say, I've really had a lot of fun with this blogging thang. I've learned a lot, but feel there is still so much more to learn.
I've also met some other great Moms and bloggers.
When I first learned of blogging about six years ago, I will admit I thought it seemed a bit self-centred for someone to blog about themselves. Who cares, I thought?
Then I created blogs for both my boys as their "baby books", because I never did the typical books. It was a great way for family and friends to see what they were up to and watch them grow. And it's something that I did so that I could one day give it to them. Again, their baby books. It was all for them. I did that for a good 5 years for Big T and a couple years for 'Lil K, and then I decided that I really needed to do something for me and no one but me!
Me! Me! Me! Talk about being self-centred.
But seriously, I spend my days caring for the wants and needs of other people and had been for the last five years. Whereas I wouldn't change my life with my boys for anything, I still needed something that was mine, all mine!
After coming across some Mommy blogs, I thought that blogging just might be that something.
It took me a while to start because I had a difficult time coming up with a name. Once I came up with the name, then it was the design. That really slowed me down because I wanted to come up with the "perfect" design, etc, etc, but then one day I realized that I just needed to start. So I picked a template and just started blogging. I figured the design would evolve. I'm still using that template, but I'm thinking on ways to change it up. There's no rush though.
So thanks to all the Mommy bloggers out there who inspired me to start this blog and share mine & my family's stories. And thanks for sharing yours with me. What a great community I've found out there...
...and Happy Birthday to me...er, my blog.
