For the past month, all I've wanted to do is blog. I think about all day at work, waiting for the moment that I get home to start writing down some of my thoughts and ideas from the day. I get so excited when I see people reading my blog and submit comments. I click refresh constantly on my stats and have this little ball of joy and excitement to see that just one more person has read one of my posts. It's just so exhilarating!
Does that make me a blogging addict? I don't know. You tell me!
Now, there's a difference...I WANT and NEED to spend time with Micah, I NEED to go to work, I NEED money to take care of my household, I NEED to buy groceries, I NEED to cook a meal (every now and then)...but all I really WANT to do is spend time with Micah and blogging.
In a short period of time, I've become fascinated by the world of blogging -- the different perspectives, the incredibly hilarious stories, the connections with people around the world. It's just an amazing way to share your story (good or bad) with the entire world...and to get advice when it's much needed (hence my co-sleeping post Get Out of My Bed and the incredible feedback and advice I received from a number of parents).
Blogging has become somewhat of a stress reliever...juggling so many things at one time tends to drive you insane when you have no one but a toddler to listen to your frustrations. Most times, Micah looks at me with this puzzled look on his face, similar to the little boy did in that movie Look Who's Talking (wasn't he adorable? I often wonder if kids really think that their parents are crazy).
Of course I have friends, but my friends don't want to hear me ramble on and on (at least not ALL the time). Sometimes, I have to be a good friend and listen too. I probably interject way too many times though because I have so much on my mind that I have to just get out. But all of my friends are really good at just bearing with my craziness.
Actually a few of my friends even told me that blogging was the best thing that I've chosen to do...I wonder why? :)
I've always had a sincere passion for writing and for weaving a tale. I've been told that I have a strange sense of humor, so it just seemed to be a great fit to try blogging. Now that I have, there is no turning back. I will probably be blogging for years to come. (If I ever get burnt out and you ever hear me saying "This is my last post", smack me in the face and please remind me of my excitement when I first started so I can have a renewed passion once more)
Nonetheless, this will probably be me...
