In reading one of my favorite blogs I stumbled upon Mommy Want’s Vodka post about why she blogs and she asked why we blog so of course I had to answer. But only after thinking about it for a couple days.
I’ve really been trying to get better at this blog thing. It’s hard. It’s a lot of work. It takes a lot of time if you want to actually grow your blog into something. And is it worth it? I don’t know yet since I’ve only been doing it since May.
I spent a lot of time reading blogs on various topics and pondered starting one of my own. And you know what got me hung up… a witty name. What in the hell was I going to call my blog? I mean without a cool name to catch your attention why read it? So I thought about for some time before finally settling on something. And that was the beginning of With Just a Bit of Magic. Is it the best choice? Eh… who knows. But I like it and that’s all that really matters!
But why blog… well why not! I have a lot to say and a lot to share. It’s a way to meet new people and so far that’s been the best part! Connecting with other moms out there has been amazing and the only thing that could make it better is getting to actually meet them!
Like so many mommy bloggers I have kids (duh…). And to me they’re entertaining and I need to share all the things that they do. I know you want to know what they do on a daily basis too! Because what else would you do! A side effect of that is that it’s an easy way to keep family updated on things that are going on in my life.
I like blogging. Maybe because it’s new, maybe not. But only time will tell I guess. Right now I just ramble on and on about things that aren’t all that important or even interesting. But someday I’d like to have guest posts, host a giveaway, do a review or two but it’s not the most important thing.
I will tell you all that I am a terrible writer. I am the queen of run on sentences and if it weren’t for spell check this blog would be even more atrocious! I’m not all that witty. Things don’t come to me that quick! It’s always later I think, ‘dammit! I could’ve said this… or that…’ and of course it’s to late then. And the worst part is sometimes things sound good in my head and on the blog it’s not the same…. you can’t hear my tone of voice and the sarcasm. Hope you get my odd sense of humor!!!
My guess is that it’ll be hard to keep up with a post every other day or so. I mean I work full time and have 4 kids! geesh… but sleep isn’t that important is it?
I want to know why do you blog? How long have you been doing it and what keeps you doing it?
