Before I began blogging, I wish I had known just how influential it was going to become in my life.
Did I know that I’d meet women across the globe that would become some of my closest friends even though I’ve never actually met them in person?
Did I know that I’d learn things about other people’s lives through reading their blogs that maybe their family or friends don’t even know?
Did I know I’d get funny looks from my friends and family at the mention of, “Oh, well I read it on a blog…” or “Someone I know through blogging…” or “Honey, I’m going to meet one of my twitter friends in person come August!”?
Did I know that blogging (& twitter) would become so important to me that sitting down at the computer (or phone) was something I’d need (yes, NEED) to do on a daily basis?
Honestly, blogging has changed my life a little bit. Those of you reading this who aren’t bloggers yourself won’t get it. I know you won’t. But those of you who are part of this amazing platform will totally be nodding your head in agreement.
I’m proud to say that I am a blogger, and a mommy blogger at that. The connections I have built around the world with others amazes me daily, and the fact that I can reach out to someone else at any given point in the day through my blog or twitter is even more amazing.
Before I began blogging I wish I had known that once I started, I wouldn’t be able to stop. Not because I’d change my mind about the demand it has on me, but to prepare myself a little more for it. Juggling work, kids, a husband, a house, friends, family, and the blog. Yes, I consider it a priority in what I do day in & day out.
