It's here again. National Blog Posting Month, November 2012.
My mother's group (the Milk Moms) again decided to opt-in and many of us are participating in NaBloPoMo - you can see their blogs on my blog roll.
I love the self discipline of making myself write everyday. Occasionally I'll be able to post-date an entry or two, but generally I am writing my post on that same day.
I started my blog in earnest way back in February of 2008. I had written a handful of entries before then, but decided to go public in February 2008. My blog has certainly evolved - I thought it would be a way to record the neat interactions and finds I had at the thrift store or on Craigslist, but it turned in to a fairly typical Mommy blog. Along the way, I've made a conscious decision to blog honestly and authentically. If I only share the good times and funny stories about the girls, then it's not really an authentic picture of my life without the challenges as well. I had told some family members about this blog before I made that decision and since they may be uncomfortable reading about the more personal aspects of my life, I started a separate blog just about the girls - unfortunately, I rarely update it but it would be so easy to do, so I really should. (I love that I can take a photo and publish to my blog all in one easy step using the blogger app on my iphone).
So, here I go again. Thanks for coming along for the ride.
