My blog is basically my outlet to share the medical struggles we have had with our now 5-month-old daughter. If we get the diagnosis that the doctor thinks she has, then I'm going to use my blog for networking and to create awareness for this debiliating terminal disease that would take her away from us in just a few years if she does have it. I keep thinking that the more people I reach out to that maybe someone who comes across her story may know someone who could help or if they shared her story, they might find someone who can help.
I guess, basically, my blog is a fight for my daughter's life.
I write about 5 to 10 posts a week depending onwhat is going on.
I have 4 blogs that I write for. The first 2 are my blogs and the 2nd 2 are ContentQuake blogs.
http://homeschoolblogger.com/cindys is the address for my personal blog called Our Journey. This is my personal blog. It is filled with a fun mix of musings on faith, family, marriage, homeschooling, parenting, ministry and everything else life brings.
http://mommaven.blogspot.com is the address for my reviews/advice blog called MomMaven. Mom Maven reviews products and services geared to families. Mom Maven links to other great family sites. Mom Maven shares ideas and information to help you be the best mom you can be.
http://mommybabble.contentquake.com is the address for my other "mommy" blog called Mommy Babble. Most of what I write here are series articles. I have written series on keeping Christ in Christmas for your kids, New Years resolutions for parents, families, teens and children, chores. I also have an ongoing blog experiment on recipes for picky eaters.
My goal with the blog is to educate moms about c-sections, as well as writing about cloth diapering, homeschooling, and what life is like with 4 kids ages 5 and under. I chose c-sections as my main focus because there is so little out there on the web about women having more than 3 c-sections, let alone the information being positive.
So far, I've been writing 6 posts a week, but I just started up a few weeks ago.
Most of my visitors are not friends or family.
I've spent the past week writing about journaling- I've shared some how to's, as well as ideas on creating a mother's journal and my examples from my own journals. I have several interesting c-section articles on my tabs as well as a few cool birth photos. : )
My blog is called Grandma's Blog. It's connected to our online store Grandmas's Shoppe. My mom and I are a mother/daughter team! Through the blog we give updates on our family, merchandise specials, Feature different merchandise from our vendors including the mom-preneurs that supply most of our merchandise.
I try to write at least 2 blogs per week. We get new visitors to our blog.
My URL is www.littlebrothermax.blogspot.com and my name is Tina Green.
I chose to blog because we adopted our two children from China, our son having special needs, and I wanted to share our journey and possible inspire others to adopt. I also have challenges I face due to a health disorder.
I don't post as often as I'd like (just to pooped to peck at the keys!)
I do get visitors other than my friends and family but I'm always looking for more!
Basically it's a blog all things "woman." I write about life, mine & others, parenting, fashion, home decorating, makeup, skin care, books....you name it and I cover it. One day it's deep and meaningful the next day I'm obsessing about reality tv. I'm a chick, what else can you expect???
I try to write every day, but if not, I am at least posting 5 days a week.
I have a stat counter and I would say I get about 50-75 visits a day. Some of those are definitely friends, but all of my comments are from people I don't know.
Mostly I started my blog to get back into the habit of writing. But more than anything, my writing is to try to connect with other women so that we all know we're not alone. There is always someone else out there going through the same stuff.
You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll wonder why...that's my blog!
