I started this blog after Big Jon & I got engaged so I could document such a special time in our lives. I plan to have a “blog book” made out of those posts, and I know some day my kids will really enjoy reading all about our engagement story and wedding planning.
I continued the blog because I fell in love with blogging. I really enjoy writing, and like having a place to “journal” through pictures and stories of our life. I feel like I am actually accomplishing something through blogging, because unlike Facebook, Twitter, or any of the other social networking sites, this will allow my kids to look back on our lives and read stories and memories to go along with the pictures. Sometimes I write about things I’ve learned, mistakes I’ve made, dreams I have, funny stories, pictures, trips, just whatever I feel. I plan to blog about each different phase of our lives- newlyweds, pregnancy, new mommy and daddy, and little family. I love others’ sweet blog posts about their adventures in each of these different stages of life and am excited for my own.
This blog is also a way for family & friends (that I don’t get to see often enough) to keep up with us. I feel certain that LOTS more people read the blog than those who actually “follow” it. And that’s fine with me. I know some people who don’t blog don’t get it. They can make fun of it if they want to, but I for one am thankful for this little space – for the memories I will have documented some day for my family to read and to look back on.
The blog community is really a neat one. I have enjoyed getting to know many readers, reading their stories, and seeing where everyone is in their life. I love reading all kinds of blogs!
Anyway, for some reason today I felt the need to share that. So, thank you for reading my little ramblings.
I LOVE this little blog.
I love my readers and I love to read others’ blog. I think the “blog haters” are just jealous. Don’t you think?
