Blogging is becoming so big … heck, almost everyone has their own blog!
But a lot of people turn their noses up at bloggers like myself who actually blog about their children, or their own lives in general. It has sort of become taboo (which I disagree with 100%).
I started to think about all the reasons I started to blog, and why I continue on a daily basis to blog about parenting and my own personal children.
I remember going back to early 2008 when I started my first blog. It was after I had been asked to nurse in a different room by my grandmother at my own sister’s baby shower. I was dumbfounded, and frankly I was pissed.
I couldn’t complain about it to my mother because back then she would have sided right with my grandmother, and of course I couldn’t just throw my own grandmother under the bus. So I started a blog and complained about it. By the way, years later I laugh about the whole experience and chock it up to a whole generational barrier in parenting.
I found it freeing, helpful, and as time went on … completely necessary!
Four years into my blog, I am so grateful for all the people I have met, and for the amazing outlet it has been. I was able to document my entire pregnancy with my daughter right here on Babble with people all over the world. How cool is that? And people actually cared!
Anyway! This is why I blog about my children.
Do you blog about your kids?
