When and Why I Started Blogging

I have to say that I have the greatest readers! You guys sure came through for me with the questions. I love them all and plan to answer them all over the next few days. Tesa (who happens to have adorable children and a great blog, go visit her!) asked me how long I've been blogging and why I started. It was the perfect question for today, since today just happens to be my 1 year blogoversary!!

I actually started blogging on MySpace a while before I started this blog. However, I knew that I was quickly outgrowing my MySpace days and wanted a blog that was not connected to that. So, this blog was born. I have always loved writing. I have always sucked at keeping a journal. Blogging was a great fit for me. I knew it was something I would keep up with (because I spend waaay too much time on the internet) and it would allow me to write.

I love sharing my stories with others. Blogging also allows me to connect with other women out there. I love getting comments and knowing that I'm not alone in the things I go through. There is always some wonderful person out there who's been there done that and is ready to give me that little bit of support I need.

I never really meant my blog to be a place for me to share things with distant family, but sometimes it happens that way and mostly it's great (except that time my mom got a little annoyed that I called her crazy...but the shoe might not have been too small, if you know what I'm saying). Basically, my blog is a place where I'm free to be me. I put it out there with no filters and feel no guilt over it. That's really something we can't always do in real life. I love blogging and hope to be here in my little corner of the bloggy world for quite some time to come. If you already follow me, thank you so much for riding along! And if you don't follow me, well, why the heck not?!

Thanks for the question, Tesa! I'll be answering more of the great questions I received over the next few days. And if you didn't leave one, or think of another one, pop back over and ask away!


  1. My family is crazy, but luckily we all know it!!!

  2. Congrats on your blogoversary! How exciting! The blogging community is great, isn't it? I love the connections you make with people you would have never known otherwise and like you said, to write a post and realize others feel the same way is a wonderful feeling.

    I look forward to reading more answers, everyone seemed to have left some good ones.

  3. It is so fun to see how blogs first start and how they grow : ).


Comments?! Yes, please! I'll return the love.
