It's such a treat for me to introduce to you
one of the first women I met
when I started blogging.
Many of you may know her as
The Head Eagle
Did you know:
she packs heat
she has a purse addiction
she has two darling boys and a beautiful little angel daughter in heaven and a husband
she's a busy mommy
at one point she was managing multiple blogs-- successfully
she's a Ute fan
tomorrow is her birthday!!
I have loved getting to know her through blogging.
Sit back, enjoy her post
and then go on over to her place
and swap howdies.
And go back often!
She likes me…really really likes me.. Those were the thoughts that crossed my mind when Stephanie asked me to write a guest post. Either that, or she is at the end of the list. I would like to think that the latter is not the case. Regardless, I am honored to be posting here today. I blog, for so very many reasons. I’ve learned a lot over the course of my blogging days and I’ve been grateful for every opportunity that it has afforded me.
Blogging with a Cause
Because it is blogging that has brought me here today –as a guest blogger, I thought the topic of ‘Why I blog’, seemed quite appropriate.
I began this journey, very unsuspecting of what I would find. I originally created this little space of mine, as a way to share our family happenings with friends and family. However, something much greater has kept me blogging.
That something great is not so much what I do for my blog, but what it does for me…
My blog provides me with a creative outlet, a way for me to express myself endlessly. Despite the fact that I have finally settled in with my blogs look and layout, I continue to express myself through my writing. It has been said –by those that know me best, that if you really want to see me, you come here….or in today’s instance…there (read: my blog). Although I continue to share our family happenings, my style of doing so is very much my own. All of it done with a good healthy dose of me, and expressions of who I am.
More important, is the fact that my blog is a reminder that this world is much smaller than is seems. There have been many times –as a working mother/sometimes single mother, that I have felt very alone. It takes only one or two clicks-away from my own blog, that I realize my feelings to be far from fact. Because the fact is, there are mothers everywhere –just like me, dealing with runny noses, late nights and potty training. It is these same mothers that have gone from just fellow bloggers to friends.
I never could have imagined the lessons I would learn, or the people I would meet through blogging. The lessons learned, life changing; and the genuine friendships, Priceless. Blogging truly enriches my life, everyday. Making the lessons learned and the friendships forged, the exact reason 'Why I Blog'.
