I began blogging way back in the spring of 2008, primarily so my friends and family were able to keep track of Willsey.
But, then I started reading more blogs and it became an obsession to read about other moms and their children in their daily lives. That's what I loved about blogging. It was about real life and all the blogs I visited had tons of pictures and told funny stories about mommy hood.
Some of the blogs that I loved and still love and have never changed their way of blogging are, Lifelong Playdate (one of the first blogs I ever read)...she is a private and awesome blogger. McMommy Chronicles who just recently stopped blogging, totally miss her. Bytes of Memory with Lindsay, who always has great recipes and the cutest pictures of her little guy, Sammy. Naptime Novels with Clare, whom I mentioned yesterday is the queen of craftiness. Another favorite is Mary at Francie and Maisie and now Janie, she is an amazing mom and business owner x 3. I found Mary while at Steece's Pieces which is another favorite of mine. Suz has quads and they are total cuties!
What I am getting to is, I am glad that I have not really changed the way I blog. I am still a mommy blogger, but with the real life aspects of it all. I feel like blogging has changed so much, in good ways and in bad ways. I like showing pictures of Willsey and the "happenings" of him.
The occasional giveaway and entering a contest is nice but I still want to keep perspective of why I started. Which is to share in the rainbow and unicorn moments along with the stormy, dark cloud moments of motherhood with other mom bloggers. Which, I appreciate so much!
I have to say I have met some pretty amazing and fantastic mommy bloggers out there that I call friends even though I haven't met them in real life.
So, to all my bloggy friends out there, thanks for always keeping it real.
Now go check out Shell, who is one of those amazing, mommy bloggers.
