Why do I blog?

Have you ever read my posts and thought, why is she sharing that?  Or, maybe you have thought...  wow, that is so personal why would she blog about that?  Well I will attempt to explain that here in this post.  

Why I started blogging:  I first started almost a year ago.  I became overwhelmed with my husband being gone all the time and was looking for support for the wives of ag teachers. There isn't ANYTHING out there in the way of support....  So, I thought I would start blogging about being an Ag Teachers wife.... It soon turned into a way for me to keep others up to date on our family.  I started out doing just that.... keeping others updated.  Though, I have managed to turn it into a way for me to share my heart, my thoughts, my wonderings in life.....  

What blogging is for me:  It is a way for me to share with others our journey in life.  It is a celebration of life.  It is a way for me to connect with family, friends, and fellow bloggers.

What I blog:  I blog the good and the not so good.  I blog openly and honestly my feelings on life and the events that we encounter.  I blog from my heart.  EVERYTHING I blog, if it is personal, I get clearance from my husband first and foremost.  He is such a great sport, especially since he is so private.  If he has any qualms about a blog, I delete it, no questions asked, unless a good ol' edit is needed.  

Why I blog:  I blog to share.  I blog to let others know that although they may not have the courage to say something out loud..... I probably will and that is okay.  I blog to let others know that they are not alone.  I blog so others can count their blessings.  I blog to let others know my heart and soul.  I blog to catalog life.  I blog to encourage.  I have a passion for life, the good and bad.  I want to share my passion with you. 

When I blog: I blog whenever.  There are not set times or days.  I blog if I have time.  I blog when I don't have time.  I blog multiple times a day and sometimes skip a day or two.  I blog mainly at night, after the kids are fed, bathed, and in bed.

Not only have I forgotten where I parked, But I was trying to force myself into the Wrong white Expedition. I kept on pushing and pushing the alarm unlock button and trying all the doors until I realized there were no carseats in the back of this Expedition. OOOPPSSS. My truck was really like 2 rows over. heehe.
