Consider Me Unexperienced...

I have no experience with Blogging...Unless you consider my random snapshots of what is going on in my head, at the time I update my status on Facebook, blogging. Using FB has allowed me to connect with many people that I otherwise would never have talked to again. It is not that I did not want to talk to them, it is more that our lives took different paths. I recently reconnected with a friend of mine from highschool and saw her family blog. I was instantly drawn in by her stories of her daily life as a stay at home mom and the trials and tribulations that go with that experience. By reading her random stories, it was like I was reconnected with her in the way we used to share with eachother at 16.

Here is her blog: Shades of Motherhood

It was through her blog, that I developed the dream of creating my own for my family. I feel like this is an amazing way to connect with family and friends who would love to share in our family experience of becoming (and surviving) first-time parenthood! I have realized that most parents LOVE to talk about their kids. I know that I could go on and on about what he has done, what I have done and what amazing things we have learned along this path together. Writing about it and chronicling this tremendous chapter in our lives would not only give other people a glimpse into our ever changing life, but it would serve as a tool for myself to reflect on and share with my son later.

Here is another family centered blog that I love to read...Sickler Family Website

I have decided that creating a blog, much like the ones I have linked, will be my digital writing project. It will be a gift to myself and my family. I welcome any ideas, experiences, or pieces of advice that anyone has to help me get started!

  1. What a wonderful gift for the whole family. I encourage you to try uploading some video and sound files as well. Listening to those little voices stumble through new words is a pleasure I hold dear.
