Personally, I started my blog to create my life journal. I can print this in a book and have our adventures and pictures all in one place! That's perfect for me because I don't scrapbook and I don't write in a journal. The number one reason I continue to blog is for the journal aspect. I feel so guilty that I don't have a baby book for Mia, but someone mentioned that I already have one... my blog! It's so true, there is way more info on Mia's life than I ever would have written down!
I also love to blog because of the friendships I've made across the state, the country and the world! Blogging has brought people into my life that I would have had no chance of meeting otherwise. It's SO amazing!
And a tiny part of me blogs now to hopefully bring in a tiny bit of extra income on the side. I'm pretty much a stay at home mom now, which I LOVE! But blogging takes a lot of time... time away from my daughter sometimes. So I feel that bringing in some money to store in Mia's college savings, or money to save for a fun family vacation by ways of my blog, makes the extra time and effort I put on the computer so worth it!
I am no expert on blogging, and I'm certainly no expert on bringing home the bacon with the blog... but I have a special treat for ya'll from an amazing, beautiful and talented woman.
