Happy Blogoversary to Me!

It's probably one of the silliest words around, but I figure now is as good a time as any to take stock of my little slice of the Internet.

In the past year my page has evolved and I've read and followed a ton of other blogs. Some gave me ideas on how to make my blog better, some made me laugh, some gave me inspiration for other aspects of my life (recipes, crafts,etc).

I will probably never be disciplined enough to write everyday or have a schedule for the week. I recently realized that I have been neglecting the original intention of this blog - keeping a true journal I need to include more posts about what we're doing so I don't forget. My memory is horrible, and I don't want to forget the funny, sweet silly moments with my family. I still haven't written anything about my kids' birthdays two weeks ago.

I don't do giveaways and don't think I ever will. Never say never. I haven't done paid reviews and doubt I ever will make any money off of this and that's fine. That's not my goal.

This blog has been therapeutic for me. Sometimes I write things and don't post them publicly. Just the act of writing things down helps. I often find myself (especially when I go to sleep at night) starting to compose stuff in my head. Sometimes it's worth actually writing in the morning. Sometimes not.

In some ways it is my Internet based "command center". I haven't found a good place in my house for one yet, so I keep my project list and recipes here. Part of the reason I write book reviews is so that when someone asks me for a book recommendation, I'll actually be able to remember my opinion of the book.

I am thinking of making some changes to this blog once school lets out and I have more time. It's a learning process but I'm enjoying it.

  1. Congrats on the blogoversary! I celebrated mine this week too! :)


I love all your comments, but admittedly have been a slacker about replying to all your kind words. I've recently received a bit of spam on my posts so will now be moderating any comments - and not allowing anonymous commenting. I hope that will help me stay on top of replies.
