What made you decide to start a blog? If you’ve blogged about this before, go back and read it. Is that still the reason? What’s changed?
I've picked another blog meme. This time I think I found something that I can commit too. Giving props where props are due, Shannon from Thumbin My Way led me over to Post A Week 2011 via WordPress. Is it wrong that I using a Wordpress meme on a Blogger blog? I feel like for some reason I am crossing territories and am going to get beat up or something. Or maybe there will be a musical style snap-off involving varsity jackets.
So back to the question. I have a lot a great blog writers on my bookmark bar. They inspire me. I found the Reverb 10 idea over at Adventures in Juggling. I thought it was a great idea. I wanted a way to move into the new year and leave 2010 peacefully behind. I headed over there and decided to jump right in. But that would require a blog. Now, currently I have a craft/tutorial blog that I had started but due to a Mac Crash have not updated in awhile. I wanted something this time that would focus more on writing and not crafty awesomeness. So Something Cute by Juju turned into Something Written By Juju. I like Iweb for the craft blog because I can add pictures and its all point and click. However I ran into some issues using Iweb. For my written blog I wanted something easy that I could use from multiple locations. Blogger has fit nicely so far.
I think part of me wants to tell my story. Or at least have a spot to get some of my ideas out of my head. I wanted to reflect on 2010 and accomplished some self reflection in the process. It was a good experience. I decided to keep the momentum going but felt a little self conscious that my oh so glamours life of being a SAHM/wifey wouldn't produce enough material to write about. So enter the memes. It's more to help me think outside of the box and spur ideas in hopes that I don't write about the same five things over and over...
My adorable 2 and 3/4 year old
My Hot Hubby
My love of Good Pop Music (sorry no Brittney)
The Coffee in my Cup
Posting every day was easy when I added it to my routine. But enter life and the dreaded laundry monster and posting once a week seems to fit more into my giant game of Jenga. Posting once a week for the entire year isn't intimidating to me at all so I think it will fit in nicely with all the other pieces in the tower.
Speaking of the same five things...I need to get Clover some toast, kiss the hubby, add a load of laundry, make another cup of coffee and charge my ipod. Guess I better get motivated this morning. Strawberry jam or Orange Marmalade?
