Well, as you can see it has taken me just about 7 months to begin my blog. My husband set this up for me in November and not until just a few days ago did I decide to become serious about it. We are currently in the process of selling our first home and moving to our second - a bittersweet moment for us. I have found myself trying to send multiple emails and pictures of our house hunt to relatives and finally decided it was time to begin my blog. I can now post updates here and keep everyone informed. I not only hope to keep people updated on our current move, but hope to make blogging a daily (or at least frequent) habit in order to keep everyone informed on all of our news.
I have a friend who lives in Ohio that I admire when it comes to blogging. Ever since learning of her sight, I can honestly say I don't think a week has passed when she hasn't posted at least one blog - I am pretty sure she posts something at least every couple of days. I have added her link to my favorites and typically check up on her at least once a week and love it. I don't feel as though I have missed out on a single moment of her life.
With our relatives living various distances from us, I decided this would be the best and easiest way to keep everyone informed. I was pretty sure grandparents would particularly like it - especially when the posts include pictures of the granddaughter. I also thought it would be a wonderful idea for me since I love writing down milestones and funny stories relating to my daughter. When she was first born I did very well writing daily about our experiences. I would say I continued that until she was about a year old. Then I started to just jot things down here and there on the calendar (hoping to one day go back and journal those calendar notes). I would say it has been about 3 months since I have written anything down and know it is something I will one day regret. So like I said, if I can just make it a habit, it will be a win-win for all. Family and friends will love keeping up with us and I will have a record of all our experiences.
So with all of that said, I sign off on my first official blog entry.
