Why Moms Blog...let me count the ways!

All moms that I know are busy moms. How we find the time to blog always amazes me. But why we blog...! There are a hundred reasons.

We blog because we want friends and family around the world to get a snapshot of our daily lives. We blog because we have stories to share and pictures to show that we don't want to keep to ourselves. We blog about extraordinary achievements- and sometimes we blog about ordinary moments just to celebrate the importance of everyday life.

We blog because we have something to say, or sometimes because we just need to vent . We blog because we know our families are unique and because at the same time we need to know that we're not the only family in the world whose sweet children are sometimes disgusting or who have lambs living in the kitchen.

We blog because we need advice, or because we've found a way to do something that makes our lives easier and want to pass it on. We blog because forgotten lunches, messy houses, and lost homework are real and in this great crazy world, it's good to know we're all in this together, and that no matter what we do or say or feel, we can find reassurance that the kids will all okay as long as they are loved. We blog because we know that we can learn from each other, and because any community - even an internet one - is a positive thing.

If you're reading this, check out some other members of this great big community at Blog Party 09 hosted by 5 Minutes for Mom. Bloggers will link from that site to their own blog where there will be a post telling you a little about themselves with links. Take a look around, and enjoy.

I just started blogging, but I'm having a lot of fun with it. I feel like I have something for me, outside of my kids, again and it's a really nice feeling. Happy partying!

Hi! Just found you through UBP- I enjoyed reading about why moms love to blog. I agree full heartedly! I loved seeing the pic of your children on your sidebar as well painting. Letting kids create is such a great thing!
