Some time ago I heard or read something, somewhere, about blogging. Nothing that interested me, in the least. Strangely enough, through my two pregnancies I avidly followed other pregnant women´s journeys on youtube (something I also heard or read somewhere) and yet that had managed to catch my attention. I think because I saw them live, heard the concern in their voices, the excitement and anticipation of their upcoming motherhood that was so much like my own, I connected to them.
I admit I never really read a blog, anyone´s blog until very recently and so I really had no basis to write them off entirely. But just like when you hear a new word or expression, you suddenly see it everywhere....so it was with blogs for me. A few months ago a friend of mine told me of her new project, she was starting a blog. Very enthusiastically she told me about her search for finding a personal space, in which to pour her creativity, share her thoughts and perhaps even create something new for herself. She had been following blogs for some time and had seen working moms like herself, dedicating time to blogs that were an outlet for creativity and inspiration. Some had even created businesses out of them. Not intentionally, they had found a niche in which to share ideas, advice, just about anything they wanted and people were paying attention.
Interestingly enough, I was just starting a ¨project¨ myself, a children´s clothing store online. I was curious and began to investigate, reading a few here and there, suddenly realizing it was a whole other world I had not been privy to. The more I read the more out of touch I felt. I suddenly felt like I needed to write as well...(warning, cliche ahead) a need to be heard? I imagine this comes from raising two kids under the age of 5, you crave creativity - the adult kind! I realized I needed time to share my thoughts, express ideas, if even just for myself, at the very least it might be therapeutic. So here it is, welcome to my blog...stay tuned, more to come!
