Well, I discovered the blogging world about 3 years ago, and now regularly read many blogs about things like family life, homeschooling, crafting, and homemaking. Since I am at home a lot, reading blogs helps me feel a little more connected to the world outside of my own four walls.
I've contemplated starting my own blog for quite a while, but wasn't sure that I would know what to do with it! I finally decided that this could be a way for me to keep family and friends updated on some of the things going on in our little household. I think it will be fun to keep this type of journal, as I do enjoy journaling. There's so many things that happen, especially when children are young, that you think you'll always remember, but you don't. I want to document some of the funny and creative things that my boys say and do. Raising 3 boys, especially when they're home all the time, can be exhausting and frustrating at times; but it's rarely boring, always interesting, and often hilarious.
I've read many blog posts that encouraged me in my own life as a mom and wife. Maybe I'll be able to encourage someone else some day as I share about things I've learned along the way.
I also plan to write posts about good books I've read (I read mostly Christian fiction); sewing, knitting, or crocheting project that I've finished (which is never as many as I'd like); and post some of my favorite photos with my new camera (I'm also a photographer-want-to-be).
Now I just have to figure out HOW to post photos; and how to write concisely and conversationally - without feeling like my high school English teacher is looking over my shoulder!
This should be fun!
