Why do you blog? Why do I blog? Why does anyone blog?
Lots of questions with lots of different answers depending on who is answering the question. There is no black and white to the answer, it’s all gray.
I’ve been debating why I blog a lot here lately. At one time I had a lot of followers and commenters but that has drifted by the wayside. Because of that I’ve even thought about closing up shop. Apparently I don’t have anything to offer anyone anymore… Or do I?
Why do I blog? Well one reason is to have a scrapbook so to say of my life. I mean life is busy and hectic. I’m now approaching the 1 year mark to having my beautiful baby girl and I can’t remember her birth story nearly like I did when it happened and I typed it out. I do wish I’d have done it in one post and not 5 or 6 or however many I wound up with, but that’s besides the point.
I have the timehop app on my cell phone and I absolutely LOVE when it reminds me of things that happened a year, two years, three years, and beyond ago. I just sit in awe and think, really, has it been that long?
In fact I was talking to Lourie yesterday and we were talking about her daughter’s boyfriend. I recalled a past boyfriend and she informed me it wasn’t a year ago (like I initially thought) but two years ago. Again, how did that happen?
April of 2013 my world got tipped upside down on it’s head and landed with a pretty hard thud, but you know what… I enjoy this life a whole lot better than what was happening prior to that. I don’t think I’d have some of the same experiences I had back then… so this blog is a great reminder. There are still days I cry that things happened the way they did but then when I start feeling sorry for myself I remember everything that was going on and bam, I smile. I mean had I not lost my job, I wouldn’t be back in school working on my Master’s which is something I always wanted to do.
Had I not lost my job I might not have my baby girl… not that work hindered that, so maybe I would have… I guess God is the only one who knows that.
So yes, I tend to think that I might close up shop on this blog and then I can’t wait to come back to this place. I know posts have been a little more scattered these last few months, School demanded a lot from me toward the end of the semester. And now it’s summer and I sometimes don’t realize my day is gone until it’s 11pm and I’m laying in bed trying to go to sleep between the baby girl kicking me and the husband snoring. Yes, we co-sleep right now, something I swore I’d never do. I guess I like the taste of crow :(.
So anyway if you’ve stuck through all the brain splatters I’ve had through the years. All the joys and trials I’ve face, I just want to say thank you! And if you’re new, please stick around, the best is yet to come!
I don’t plan on quitting this blogging gig anytime soon even though some days I think Yes I will. I won’t. So thank you for sticking around. I love ya!
