I will get to why I am so excited in a minute. If you are reading this post then you probably know that I am a newbie to the blogger world. But I’m sort of a ‘closet’ blogger in a manner of speaking because I haven’t told anyone other than my kids and husband that I have a blog! And they think it’s a faze I’m going through and will get over soon. Maybe they are right; but I think they are wrong. I have not commented on other blogs leaving my blogs name, (not saying that’s wrong, I too WILL do that soon) I haven’t in any way put Family Home and Life out there other than here. I LIKE blogging, it’s my personal time and thoughts, and it’s separate and yet linked to my life as a grand mother, mother and wife. Does that make any sense? This blog is something I do for me; not anyone else. When I’m good and ready, after I’m sure I’ve found my voice and know how to use it, I will tell everyone who will listen that I have a blog. I’m just not there yet. I have learned that blogging takes a lot of time and commitment. My hat is off to you veteran bloggers; you make it look so easy.
I spend most of my life right now being there for my family in one form or the other. I, me, gets lost in all that and I have a few things to say. I have a perspective on life; yes it’s mine, and how to live it. I want to share it with someone who will listen and take me seriously. I hope that’s you. I hope that you are blessed, encouraged, and learn from me if only from my mistakes, and take away with you something that is a part of me and my life. I think I’m kind of trying to make my mark, knowing that as I get “ahem” older, I have less time to make any kind of a lasting impact on my world. I’ve lived and learned a lot in my time on this earth; what good is it if I just die with my experiences and yes wisdom and take it with me? So I want to share it with you because you are the one who is here taking the time to read what I have to say. Thank you!
And now why I am so excited as I write this post; I have had my very first comments on my blog!!! Other than the one my daughter left a long time ago. That one doesn’t really count does it? She felt obligated. Thanks honey! Momma loves you! But my first other comments came from Angie and she has a blog called The American Homemaker. Please go over there and check it out. And thank you Angie! You made my week!
By the way, when I do come out of the closet and go public with my blog, I’m going to have a give a way. I hope to be ready by the end of this year, hopefully before Thanksgiving. So check back ok?
