Like Karen, I used to keep a diary as a child. Many years ago, I was going through boxes of stuff that was still at my mom's house, and I found those diaries. I threw them away. They were so...silly.
When Katy was pregnant with Sam, she started a blog, and it looked like something I would enjoy, so I started one, too. To begin with, it was going to be all about my love for Alabama football. I made two posts, and then I didn't make another post for three months. Now, I post something about once a week. Sometimes more; sometimes less.
Like I said, I started my blog as a way for me to keep up with life, but it is also a way for family and friends to know what is going on with John and me. I've "met" some friends through the blogging world, and I love to read their blogs to see what is going on with them. One thing I love is the variety of blogs that are out there. Some are like mine--the daily "grind" of life--while others are inspirational. Some of just down right fun. Some are a great place to find recipes. Some are about the hopes and dreams the author has, and some are a place to vent frustrations, anger, disappointments (and my blog definitely falls into these categories at times.) Some are a combination of all of the above and more.
As part of the acceptance of this award, I am to sum up my blogging philosophy, motivation, and experience in five words. I think my five words would be:
Life (family, friends)
I'm supposed to pass this one to five bloggers, but I feel very generous today, so I'm passing it on to ANYONE who wants to take it.
As always, have a GREAT day!
