With that being said, here is my attempt at a blog. Why start now? Because everyone is doing it. Seriously, I see so many links on facebook to cute blogs with witty posts and pictures of family outings and daily life goings on (I have no shame in pointing the finger on this one, Julie Cannon, you put me to shame, and I love you). And don't even get me started about Pinterest! EVERYONE has a blog, making deliciously tempting recipes, displaying cute crafty projects, blah blah blah. Will i have a blog like the aforementioned, most certainly not. Mostly because I am the worst person at posting pictures, I could blame it on the fact that I do not know how to post pictures on a blog, but that is a lame excuse. I'm sure I could bug my husband enough to teach me how, but I am lazy. And if i am going to keep an updated blog, I do not needed the added pressure of making it look nice and fancy!
Who do I think will read this blog? My mom (hi mom!), Julie Cannon because I will post on her facebook that this is all her fault and she will be intrigued and come check it out. Other than those choice two, probably no one. However, this blog may be more about proving a point to myself than anything else. Can I keep it updated? Can I do it for more than a week? Well, we'll see. My other reason is less about proving something and more about me. That's right, I am doing this for me! I miss writing. I have joked to my family before when I was in college, i'm not sure what my major will be, but I know I can always major in english. At the hardest and darkest points in my life, writing helped (a little, but it helped). I loved writing short stories in high school. I love expressing myself through the written (or typed) word. And since getting married and more so, becoming a mom, I do less and less for me, and more and more for my boys. So here is my effort to turn on my writer brain, and do something with the internal narrator I have going on.
Wish me luck, I hope I come back to this blog!
