A photoless post of contemplation

No posts in almost three months. I’m pretty good at this blogging thing, eh? So good in fact, that I’ve been wondering if I should just take this thing down. I don’t know. I haven’t written anything in so long in part because I have been questioning what my motivation is for doing so. Do I blog because I need to write something down and get it off my chest so that I can process my thoughts? If so, why not do it in a journal where the world can’t read it? Do I blog to update people on how my life is going and to let you know what I’m learning and struggling with? If so, why not tell you in person? Or do I blog because I want affirmation…do I want people to pat my virtual back and tell me things I want to hear so that I can feel better about myself? If so, then that’s a dumb motivation to blog. If that’s what motivates me I guess I should stop blogging, or change my motivation. What is a good motivation to blog? What’s yours?

    I have always journaled and specifically journaled to each child. I felt like blogging was a natural extension of that but with more to it, like pictures, and I am NOT a scrap booker so this is like blending both for me. I plan to print off my blogs to keep as books. I want my kids to know I was human so they feel okay when they are human… I want them to have a record of the good times and the real times… I loved hearing and reading about my family so I figure at least one of them will enjoy it in the future:)

    I also blog to keep my far away family in contact better because we can’t afford the phone bill:)
