This week for mama time I just couldn't help but talk about one of my favorite outlets of all- BLOGGING (even if it does involve talking about my boys most of the time!)! I love blogging for so many reasons, and here are a few:
- It gives me a voice! Sometimes I feel like my intelligence and personality get lost in the shuffle of this house full of men (two of which are 3 or under!)! But when I blog I can make things as girly as I like and hear feedback from other mamas, which is invaluable to me! Blogging helps me find "me" in a time when I am otherwise mostly focusing on others.
- It makes me a better mom. I know this can seem debatable, as blogging can take some time away from my family, but I really believe that it makes me a better mom on a few levels- I feel better after I have spent even just a little time focusing on something I enjoy, and I learn so much about myself and how I can be better, plus everything I learn from all my bloggy mama friends!
- I don't have to feel guilty for not scrapbooking! I used to scrapbook, but after R-Man arrived I quickly realized that pulling out all my supplies to put together a page or two simply took too much time and effort in our little life! Through blogging I am able to chronicle our lives much more quickly and in greater (and definitely more up-to-date) detail. I plan to turn my posts into scrapbooks (The Cutest Blog on the Block will soon be offering such a service) which makes me feel like I am leaving my children a legacy and something to look back on from their childhood.
What drives you to blog and do you think it makes a difference in the kind of mom you are?
