Why I started a Blog

Click here for my Contact Information

My husband travels (a lot) and my children are young. You can probably guess that my conversations at home are less than optimal. I have a fair amount of friends and I enjoy spending time with my family, but we really have different interests.

My daughter would talk about princesses and cats all day long. My son would talk about robots and collecting things. My husband would talk about all kinds of "man things" and well, I want to talk about healthy food, gardening, running, and my daily life.

So we can all handle a bit of each other's conversations but just not as much as I want to talk about. I would talk about eating healthy all day long. My children get bored with it. My husband would tune me out. And my friends usually like less-serious conversations. So whom do I talk with about the things that really matter to me?

As it turns out, myself...in the form of this blog. Do I make money blogging? No, but I do have advertisements on my blog just in case. But really, I blog to get out all the things I've always wanted to talk about. If there's an audience that wants to listen, then I'm flattered.

Blogging is a great outlet. I started blogging as an escape and distraction from work.

Hi, there. Stopping in from SITS. I like how you say that your blog is a place to talk about what you want to talk about.

I'm enjoying looking around here. :)

I've been reading so many blogs that are so helpful to me as a first time stay at home Mom. I'm thinking about starting a blog of my own. Do you have any advice for me?
