Blogging has always been in the back of my mind but I’ve never had the confidence to try to write for the general public. Not that I think I will get tons of “audience” anyway, but I think in the back of my head, I’ve just always had a fear of rejection. So I just wrote for my family and friends about the adventures of parenting after my daughter was born in 2013. I gained some confidence in blogging and about 2-3 years ago, I created this new site to start blogging for anyone to see. I wrote 3 entries, then I got pregnant with my second child. That pregnancy took a lot out of me. I was sick most of the time and when I didn’t feel sick, there was another little one to attend to. Then my son was born and there was just no time to even think about ideas on what to write to people I may not even know. I did continue to write about the parenting life with 2 kiddos, but it was mostly because I wanted to also remember their milestones as they grew up and I only publicized it to family and friends.
What’s the difference now? Well, for one, both kids can go to bed by 7:30pm at night. They are not necessarily sleeping, but they are in their beds by then and we have some down time before bedtime. But in all honesty, I think I just decided to grow some balls and do what I’ve always wanted to. Putting yourself out there can be so daunting and my fear of rejection will always be there. But I love to write (though don’t expect my stuff to be grammatically correct – english is my second language you see ;-))! Time for a new hobby anyway – it seems to me that watching NCIS marathon all night does not necessarily flex my brain muscles. I’d like to get my creative juices flowing since… well… I really don’t think I’m very creative. I’m working on it! I’m a work in progress =).
My goal is to write and to entertain and to grow a community where maybe we can help each other out with whatever life throws at us! Who knows, maybe what I write could be useful for someone… or maybe it could just put a smile on someone’s face. That’s really my goal here. That… and well… everyone needs a hobby or an outlet or else they can go cray!
So thanks for reading and joining me in this journey!
