What a fun topic to reflect on! I actually started blogging on a homeschooling site last year (homeschool blogger). It was a great way for me to get ideas from other homeschooling mom's, and learn about other peoples techniques, creativity, praise reports, and even struggles. I did not consider blogging at first until I read a couple of my friends blogs. I thought it was neat idea to keep an online diary of the days events. I eventually started writing about other things besides homeschooling. I started playing around with the templates they offered and started to get bored of the same look. I stumbled upon the Google Blogger and then I was instantly hooked! Then came the decision to keep both or just one. I knew there was no way I was going to be able to keep up with both, so I chose this blog since it just seemed so much easier, and there were tons of layouts to choose from. So, my blog is just a little mix of everything that goes on in my life. It didn't really matter to me who read it or not. I did share it with my family who live in different states so they could keep up to date with us. I have since then participated in all these "meme's" and now it seems more like a hobby! I love and appreciate all the people who have read and commented on my posts. I always think that I'm the only person (besides my husband) who is interested in reading them!

Yep, this is a great topic! Blogging is awesome! I am so glad that we crossed paths. I really enjoy reading your blog daily. We seem to have a lot in common which is even better for me. I almost cried the night I had posted a verse and low and behold I go to your site after seconds of posting mine...and you'd posted the same verse! Glad we're blogging buddies girl!

Have a great weekend!

Hey there! I couldn't stay away! I had thought about homeschool blogger, but decided to start here instead. I am glad I did. I enjoy getting to know other moms who are not homeschoolers. And it has definitely been fun!
