Eons ago, shortly after I started blogging, I did a little post on why I blog. When I was done with it, I remember how lame I thought it was.
As time has passed, and I've had many, many experiences with this blogging thing--good and bad, I've realized that my reasons for blogging have changed.
As I did the 30-day challenge, I realized that I had in some more modern way, become like my mom. As my kids come to kiss me goodnight, sometimes they catch me blogging; writing down things that are on my mind.
I don't want my kids to ever wonder where they can find me and my thoughts as they were growing up. I want them to be able to turn and find my personality for that's what I want from my mom now.
Last night, I had a rather serious discussion with the Warden. I faced some facts about why I love blogging and facebook so much. You know what it is? It's the instant feedback. I love it when I can carry on a conversation with someone and know their feelings. I love it when people make me laugh by the funny things they say. I appreciate that there are so many others that go through the things I do on a regular basis. I honestly just adore the fact that I can interact with others so regularly and frequently.
I have set a goal for myself that any time I go to someone else's blog, I will post a comment about something. It's made such a big difference. I always go to the blogs listed on my sidebar when I see they've updated, and a few times a week, I go to this site and read other LDS women's blogs. It has been from this site that I've made some of my dearest blogging friends. I'm finding that everyone has something to offer.
Here are a few things from today:
I found this blog:
She's participating in a "Woman of Noble Character Challenge" each week. I'd love to do this. She got it here.
