I blog for many reasons. I don’t have to apologize, appease or placate anyone. Every single bit of my blog is the way it is because I want it to be that way, and I love having one place where I am in 100% complete control.
Before I had a blog I was always coming up with random notions and thoughts — and springing them on Mr. Plain. Lucky man, now he doesn’t have to listen to my random synapse firings. (You do!)
I’ve gotten to meet other parents like myself. Parents who don’t feel the need to appliqué and bake in order to create the perfect childhood for their offspring. (Of course, if you bake or sew, more power to you!)
Blogging forces me to set aside time to be mindful of my parenting and my life.
But most of all, blogging makes bad days more bearable. Something craptastic will happen and after the initial shock, I think to myself, “Self, this will make a great post!” and somehow that realization makes me feel so much better.
So thank you White Trash Mom for making me come up with 5 reasons I blog. Now I tag anyone out there who wants to do this meme. Try it — it’s fun!
