Linking up with A Blonde Ambition for her 'Why I Blog' Series today!
I guess I should say why I started blogging again. As you can see from my archives, I started regularly blogging back in 2010, right after I got married. My husband was traveling a lot, and I wanted something to focus on and something that was my own. I wanted it to be a humor blog and I kept getting great encouragement from the people around me, telling me I needed to keep writing.
For some reason, I stopped. I really have no idea why. Then we moved, and life got busy, and I had a baby. While I was pregnant, I started reading a bunch of Mommy Blogs, and fell in love with some of them. I continued to read these after I had Charlie and loved reading and learning about others' experiences parenting.
About a month ago, I sat in a job interview, and they asked me if I blog. And I told them I used to. And ever since then, I've thought 'why don't I?' I love to write, I love to have a chronicle of what's happening with Char. I think I got intimidated by other bloggers. I developed some blogger crushes and I thought I could never build my blog to be like their's.
But even if I never get more than my current 13 followers (that would be so sad), I will have a great collection of stories about my family, and that is priceless! I've already connected with a few other bloggers, and it's such a unique community.
Let's see where this blogging thing goes!
Sidenote: I changed my blog url to sugarfreeash.blogspot.com!
