World's Worst Blogger?

I have to admit...A year ago, I didn't know what a blog was...Yeah, I know. Can you believe it?! I can expect that from someone in their 50s, or even their 40s, but I'm only 27 (well, almost 28 - I'll give myself some credit)! What's wrong with me? I was introduced to blogging by my friend, Jennifer...A blogging addict, who writes on her blog several times a day and posts the most amazing pictures. Jennifer is an artist and photographer and has the flair for writing great posts. I, on the other hand, am not an artist (my husband and my 4 year old are the creative ones in our family!), nor do I have the flair for writing (that was sadly pointed out to me by my 6th grade teacher). I am also very private and don't enjoy posting things about me or my family for all the world to see. So, why have I started a blog, you may ask? Well, it's simple. I'm a stay at home mom, for the most part, of three very small children. All girls. Ages 4, 2 and 2 months. I've realized, especially since having a third, that I need an outlet for myself. Something more than running and yoga. I need a place to write about my thoughts, my frustrations and maybe even my dreams. I need a place to write down stories about my day, somewhere I can store and save all of the funny and crazy memories about our family. If I can be honest, I am a little intimidated about all of this. I don't really know where to begin, but hopefully I'll figure it out along the way. Jennifer, you inspired me! I may become the world's worst blogger, but at least I'll give it a shot!

Hip, hip, HOORAY!!!!

If you are anything like me, you will go from not knowing a thing about blogs (I had also NEVER heard of a blog a little over a year ago...just before I began mine) to LOVING the outlet, place for recording memories, means to connect with others you can relate with, and fun pasttime that I have discovered it to be. I LOVE connecting my my IRL (in real life) friends and making new blogging friends, too. Welcome!! So glad I inspired you. Feel free to e-mail me any blog related questions! I will add you to my blogroll right now.

Oh, and don't worry about starting slowly....it takes time to get in the groove of what to write about.

Also, I have a contest going on my blog...be sure to check it out! Oh, or can you STILL not comment? Hmmm....have you tried viewing blogs in different browsers...like Internet Explorer and Firefox? I use Firefox for my browser and it works well with Google. Just a thought.

I'll stop now. And see you Friday!!

I just found you on Mck's site. Welcome! You wouldn't happen to be an NW alum, would you? Or did you marry one? I was friends with Ben while at NW.

Anyways, yea. You're here...
And, it doesn't surprise me that Mck Mama talked you into this. ;)

Welcome, welcome, welcome! I also am a (blogger) friend of MCK Mama's, love her to pieces. I know I was in your shoes a year ago as well, I had no idea what I was getting myself into, however I have met so many wonderful people on here and have gotten GREAT advice from other mothers.
I hope that we can keep in touch, I look forward to reading your posts, and again.... welcome aboard fellow blogging mommy!

Hello! Mck Mama is so convincing isn't she? Welcome to blogging. I will be checking back for sure, because I also have a 4, 2, and almost 2 month old! (CUTE Blog Title too :)

Welcome to the Blogosphere! MCK Mama is a great Blogger mentor to have... I don't know how she finds the time to blog as well as she does :)

Anyway, welcome and enjoy all that Blogger has to offer. We look forward to your stories (I think you're a great writer - forget that 6th grade teacher!) and pictures of your lovely girls.

I earn $20 for completing a 20 minute survey!

Guess what? This is exactly what big companies are paying me for. They need to know what their customer base needs and wants. So big companies pay $1,000,000's of dollars per month to the average person. In return, the average person, myself included, participates in surveys and gives them their opinion.
