Why I Blog…

Most days, I have a lot to say.

In 2009, I moved to Peru with my newly wed husband and wanted to start a blog so my family & friends would be in the know about our experiences and life in general. I didn’t start the blog.

In 2010, we moved to Trinidad and had a baby and life was new and busy.  I didn’t start a blog.

In 2011, my daughter was turning ONE. She was wearing a dress I wore as a baby and looked so much like me. I finally started my blog. I created a Tumblr account, posted photos, and wrote about how things were going in life.  I was excited at the prospect of my friends and family having a way to check in even when we couldn’t speak often. I think I wrote once or twice a month. I created a Shutterfly share account to make sure everyone could enjoy the photos and anecdotes of our life with kids. So I wrote even less on Tumblr.  All along I wrote/blogged partly because I like to but mostly for my friends & family.

In 2014, I was inspired to start a new blog here on WordPress.  Now I blog for me.  I just like to write.  I have my Shutterfly site for the vast amount of photos I share with friends & family. I have my personal journal for the really deep stuff I prefer not to publish.  This blog is for me. And if you have stumbled upon it and enjoy my writing, awesome! Welcome to my world.

  1. I love this ‘Why I blog’ summary because it’s so similar to the conclusion I came to after several previous failed attempts to start my blog. I couldn’t work out what I was supposed to be saying or who it was all for. In the end I decided I just wanted to journal some of my life in a more public space and if anyone finds it, likes it and even finds it helpful, then that’s all a real bonus. Think I should follow you to see how your journey works out.
