Birth of a Blog

Why "Blogs Like A Mother?"

I am not exactly sure when I started thinking about doing a blog. I've certainly been an avid user of blogs for awhile; photography blogs to learn from, cooking blogs to get fat on, blogs about crafting and sewing (because I need more hobbies in my life).

But in thinking about starting my own blog I had misgivings. I mean, why would anyone even care what I had to say anyway? My sister has a blog and, while talking to her one day, I started thinking about having one "someday". That led to thinking about what the content would be, what the name would be, what the goal would be. I figured if I were to blog, it should be about something I cared about and knew about, right?

That led me to thinking about my life as a mother, a wife, a uniformed service member, a crafter, a seamstress, a photographer, a baker; all the things that make me...well, me. I decided this "someday blog" should be about all of that, those things that make me who I am and the mother I am. A blog about a mother.

Then in a moment of divine inspiration, I thought "I could blog like a mother!"  A mother who is constantly running, juggling a million things, cooking, cleaning, trying their best to raise the beautiful kids they created.

I quickly logged into blogger to see if the name was taken and, to my surprise, it wasn't.  So I snatched it up for my "someday blog."  I think the name suits me well.  I love a good double innuendo, and it pretty much characterizes my twisted sense of humor.  But at the same time, it characterizes what I think I want the blog to be about: all of the facets of life that go into being who I am.  The name stuck and here it is.

I have had the blog set up for at least two years and have never used it until today.  But I plan on that changing.  I still have some work to do in setting it all up and designing the blog, but that will come in time.  Baby steps! I don't know where it will go or where it will end up, but I think it will be fun and that it is finally SOMEDAY...

The day to blog like a mother.
