That’s a very good question… Starting a blog is not something I would ever have thought I would be doing. I am not what you would call “into” all the social media play that is out there. I have a Pinterest account, thanks to my sister, but that is it. I don’t Facebook,Twitter, Instagram or anything else that might be out there, of which I am blissfully unaware. My family is usually pretty private, and so I have no intentions of posting my kiddos or family’s faces all over this blog.
So why would such a private person even start something which is clearly anything but private? I’m not going to lie- it makes me nervous to do so.
The answer is: for my girls.
I am finding myself in a position I never would have dreamed possible for me – a stay at home mom of two beautiful little girls. I didn’t completely “choose” to be a stay at home mom, but here I am. At the same time, I’m finding that this could be an incredible opportunity for me in more than just the obvious way of the pleasure of being with my girls… I can try to pursue a personal dream.
I want to be a published writer. Big time, small time, many works, or just one- in some way get my name out there along with something I have created. I think I owe it to my girls for them to see their mama as a woman who never stops pursuing her own personal dreams all while fulfilling the other many requirements of life. I feel like I already have accomplished many of my dreams, even though I’m only 34, but this one has been sitting on the shelf for a long time. I don’t know if keeping a blog will help, how it could help, or what may come of this,but I figured I’d give it a whirl.
So here we go…
