it's fun. I know that answer is simple, but I just think it is so much fun. I find blogging therapeutic and a form of escapism as well. I enjoy writing about something that has happened to me and my family, or reviewing a new TV program and celebrity gossip. I like to make my readers laugh.
I blog because my day as a stay at home mom can get so routine if I allow it. I also want to be sure to remember these thoughts, events, opinions before they escape me...I think we all benefit from reading about the lives of moms just like us - it definitely makes me feel a bit more sane to know that I'm such a normal mom.
I also want to make friends with similar interests and situations.
I like to keep journals but I never seem to be able to sit down and actually write in them. I figured I am on the computer pretty much most of the day and could easily keep an online "journal" So far it is working out perfectly, plus I'm meeting a lot of different people and learning about their lives as well which is fun :o)
I have two blogs. One I use for memes, book reviews, and my general mayhem opinions. (http://sparedchange.blogspot.com) The other I just started and am dedicating as a family blog, where I will share my thoughts on motherhood and military life. (http://sergeantmommy.blogspot.com)
I'm hoping to expand my reader base on both and generate great discussions between myself and new friends.
