When I started my blog I thought it would strictly be about my daughter. I was putting pictures of her on my blog almost weekly. Even though the name of my site is “This Is Mommyhood”, I felt the need to stop exposing her so much on my site.
*Sidenote. This just has to do with my comfort level. I read several blogs where the kids are the main focus and I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that at all. I love seeing these kids growing up. 🙂
There’s a photo of her on my header and I know I’ll still put pics of her on my blog every now and then but I just felt the need to tame that a bit. I figure even though I’m not always writing about her, this is still mommyhood and I’m still a mama.
I’ve thought about quitting my blog many times since I think I’m awful at this but I know I would miss it too much. Also, my hubby hasn’t been that thrilled about me doing this. It’s not because of what I say in my posts. It’s the time I spend writing, time that’s taken away from him. I’m finally balancing that out with everything else though.
When I first thought of doing a blog, I tried to think of a name that didn’t just pertain to motherhood and was more neutral. I drew a blank and when it came time to type in a blog title, the name just popped into my head.
I still think about changing the name but I’m just too tired to think of a different name. Meaning: I’m too damn lazy.
The biggest reason I’ve kept going is you. Yes, you reading right now, even if it’s the first time reading my blog and you’re sitting there thinking this is the lamest post you’ve ever read.
It amazes me that real people, as opposed to robots, squirrels, and cats, actually read what I write and I am so thankful for that.
There are countless blogs out there and I’m so grateful when people actually take the time to read mine. Even if you never read my blog again or better yet, if you do come back…Thank You!!
