Why do I blog? I'm not sure, because my life is pretty boring, and I don't ever feel like I have anything interesting to say. But I love blogs, so I joined the blog world.
How did I get into blogs? I first found blogs this summer. When my friend Lauren's baby was diagnosed in utero with CDH, I wanted to find out what it was. In a google search, I ran across a blog for a baby with CDH, and I read it from the first post to the last. That blog is www.ellawest.com . I still read it almost every day and am amazed by her parent's strength and faith in God. From that blog, I found another baby's blog. He was from Birmingham, Al, which caught my attention. His family's blog is www.familyofriches.blogspot.com . From there, I found MckMama....a great blog that is hilarious and heart tugging at the same time. And then, from there, I found Bring the Rain, www.audreycaroline.blogspot.com . Another blog I read from beginning to end and cried and cried throughout. All of these blogs had a baby's life threatening illness in common, but more than that, they all are stories of great faith...faith I don't think I could have in their situations.
From my "cry my eyes out" blogs, I found Boo and Big Mamas. They are sooooooo funny! www.thebigmamablog.com and www.boomama.net . Good ole Texas girls! From them, I found www.kellyskornerblog.com on the very day that Kelly was giving birth to her miracle, Harper. Amazingly, my funny blogs took me right to another heart tugging life threatening baby blog!
From Kelly's blog, I found the jackpot! I found blogs of women with a love for homemaking and decorating. I finaly found my place in the blog world, lol. With each new blog, I find links to other blogs, and I can spend hours reading blogs and looking at the things these women have created in their homes. Hours that I should be spending taking care of my own home, I'm sure.
But of all of the blogs that I love (and there are many, obviously) my favorites are the blogs of the people I know.
I love Stephanie's www.welchstuff.blogspot.com and Roxanne's www.ramblingsofareagan.blogspot.com and Hollie's www.singletongirl.blogspot.com, and Lauren's www.keepinupwiththebrowns.blogspot.com .
If you read this, and you have a blog, please let me know...I'm sure I'll love reading yours too!
