Hi there! If you're just joining me from Jenna's Journey and the 3rd Annual Comment Challenge, welcome to day 2! If you're unfamiliar with what I'm talking about, simply click on the link above and it will give you the information you need. This is my first year participating, and I'm looking forward to hopefully meeting some new people.
Today's blog topic: Tell us about your blog. What do you blog about? Why do you blog? How did you start blogging? What kinds of things do you/are you willing to share with the world? Where do you find your topic inspiration? (Hint: Don't share about your social media just yet!)
Let's go one at a time with this one.
Tell us about your blog. - Well...my blog itself is simple really. I don't like an overly fancy appearance aside from maybe a nice background now and then. I do have comment moderation turned on because I was getting a boatload of spammy comments at one point, so don't let that deter you!
What do you blog about? - I blog about whatever crosses my mind at any given moment. I think I've covered everything from losing a friend or family member, spouting off random nuances about myself, to being over the moon happy with the birth of my little girl and little boy.. My family, my personal life...you name it!
Why do you blog? - It's a release for me. A lot of times I can just write and feel better. Other times it makes me feel like no one is watching/reading, or that no one cares because I rarely get comments from people that stop by. Sometimes it makes me feel alone, but more often than not, I can post a story like I did the other day which will make me giggle for hours! I love to share my thoughts with the blog world, and anyone that will read them, really.
How did you start blogging? - Well, my now husband had a blog when we started dating, and once I read his (and got over the fact that I thought he was absolutely insane based on his writing), I decided to start mine up too. The fact that he had an outlet that was so easily at my disposal really appealed to me. I had no idea that it would get me to where I am today, though! My first post stated that there would be poetry...but that has been all but nonexistent. Whoops!
What kinds of things do you/are you willing to share with the world? - I'll share whatever comes to mind! I do have a mental filter most of the time, but I created this blog to write and share about me, so that's what I do! Whatever strikes me - provided I can remember what I wanted to say when I get a chance to sit down - will be published.
Where do you find your topic inspiration? - Anywhere. Everywhere. In everything. My marriage, my family, my absolutely adorable children... My wedding was a big one, as was my sister's gestational surrogacy journey which uprooted me and the kids for a whole fun filled month! My gardening has been a topic since I moved into this house four years ago, of course my ongoing crochet projects (too many to link!), and my adventures in photography as of late (That blog seriously needs updating...AGAIN). I still have lots to learn about photography, but it's quickly becoming a new love of mine.
Well, I think that about covers it! Sorry about the link overload. I wanted to help you find a few things around my blog easily!
How about you? Why do you blog? Hope you stay for a while. :-)
