It's National Blog Posting Month!
And thanks for telling me about it Lori! If you want to participate, you just need to post each day in November. This is a pretty big commitment - especially for someone who has never posted daily to begin with. I'm going to give it a shot just so I can get back into the habit of blogging again.
I started blogging a few years after we adopted Erin. My blog is for Erin & myself. I want her to have what I don't have - a compilation of memories captured by her mother. I have bits & pieces from my own mother but would have cherished seeing her thoughts written down. I know what I miss, & have been trying (not too successfully) to give her a piece of me for later on in life.
Blogging has been a huge source of comfort for me, but it has also
introduced me to a number of people that I might never have had the chance to get to know in any other way
- captured my thoughts about Erin & my life as her mother
- seen bits about David - the man who was put on this planet to drive me nuts but keep me pinned with that look of his that tells me I'm his one & only.
allowed me to write about my mother so that Erin will understand who I am & where I'm coming from. I've also written about how her life affects me.
- been a source of fun in the way of tags from other bloggers
- been a place where I can vent my frustrations
