A friend suggested I start blogging. Blogging, really? She made me an offer to be a regular comment poster on her site, then I started this site and the rest is history. I love blogging because it’s cathartic. The exercise of writing helps me work through the humor of motherhood and the complexity of relationships. My blog and I suspect many others give us the freedom to write about things we may not feel completely comfortable talking about. My new blogging motto should be: life is tough – blog about it. Ha!
It’s also refreshing to see other bloggers, particularly Moms, finding themselves again. My 16 month old isn’t all that interested in my philosophical question of the day, so my blog becomes the voice that isn’t heard during daylight. Through this experience, I’ve found myself connecting with other bloggers – which was a lovely surprise. Blogging friends are kind, supportive and interesting.
This ‘hobby’ has become an outlet and the identity that I needed when I decided to stay at home with my baby girl. So thank you for following me and reading/commenting on my posts. I sincerely appreciate you. Speaking of you, why do you like blogging?
