So why do you blog?
I have been thinking about this for some time. What is the purpose of my blog?
I have read oodles of blogs and I have found many different types. Some blogs seem they are there to make the writer look good. These are the bloggers that show the perfect home, kids, and family. They can be fun to read and yet depressing at times, as we all try to measure up, even though we know we are not supposed to do that.
Then there are blogs that seem to be out for the sole purpose of collecting readers. I am guilty of trying to do this, I had no hope of ever being a Miss Perfect blogger. But collect readers, that I could try. But then I got busy with life here at our home and once you do not post every day your readership tends to suffer. When I could not get readers back well I stopped blogging.
Another type of Blog is the giveaway type. I LOVE giveaways and have won some wonderful items but I was a HUGE failure at getting sponsors for any types of giveaways. A similar type of Blog as giveaway blogs is the book review blog. I did that for a while but once again I slipped in posting timely reviews of my books. Sigh, just not my type of thing I guess.
So what are we left with? We are left with a family blog. You will read here about our happenings and going ons. This is a journal of what is going on in my family. I took some time yesterday to just reread some post about the happenings around my house and was so glad I had taken the time to get them recorded. You may not learn much, you sure won't find a perfect family here, and I am really not sure if you will ever see a giveaway posted here. I will never make money from this blog but you will read about my children our family and what God is doing for us.
You will read about......
14 year old Mr. Bookworm, he loves to read but has expanded into doing computer graphics. I think I am the only mother whose son has made a map of the lands you find in the Redwall books. He is working on reconstructing the Abbey with computer graphics.
Mr. Fix-it is next in line, He is almost 12 and I tend to lean on him. He is my right hand man. Has a tender heart and can fix almost anything that breaks around here.
Miss Princess is exactly as her name describes her. She is a sometimes moody, sometimes sweet girl of 10. She loves to dance and is currently learning to play the violin and piano.
Then we have my Professor. Boy he is a smart cookie. He is 8 but he and Miss Princess are in the same grade, and he helps her when she gets stuck with her work. But this is the kid that will run around the house trying to find his glasses when they are on his face!
Miss Sweet Pea is 7 and is Mr. Fix-it's twin, 5 years apart, they were born on the same day and she has been such a sweet little girl. Can be stubborn at times and yet under it all is a very sweet nature.
Miss Sunshine is 5 and I just know she is not mine!!! She gets up at 6:30 and starts her day singing. She is a bundle of joy. Such a fun little girl to be around.
Bubby is next, and he is all boy!! Just turned 4 and he is gonna be responsible for every gray hair I ever get! He is always go, go, go. He loves Thomas the Tank Engine and cinders and ashes some days I am ready to put sugar in his fire box.
The Baby, ok I need to get her a new nick name cause she won't be a baby for to much longer, is 2. And she is the sweetheart of the family. She is adorable and she knows it. She will chatter your ear off.
Those are my children. That is what I am busy with. My Family
My hubby and I have been married for 15 years and are more in love than before. He is my best friend and the most amazing man ever!
I do pray that you will be blessed and uplifted when you visit here. And if I have no readers or oodles of them I need to blog. So I can look back and see what God is doing for us.
So why do you blog?
