So, I haven't been blogging regularly like I used to because I'm rethinking the purpose of my blog again. A couple of months ago, I started reading people's blogs and got really motivated to start my own. I didn't really know what I wanted to write about so I found inspiration from others and came up with a topic for each weekday. However, that eventually became a chore. I felt like sometimes I was writing just because I was supposed to and not because I wanted to. Also, I sometimes feel like I don't have time to blog and do other things I want to focus on. So, I'm trying to figure out how to use my blog to help me accomplish some other things. For example, I want to start the Project Life kit by Becky Higgins. A blog I read, The Mom Creative, will be doing a link up on Tuesdays where people can link their blogs to show off their pictures for the week. I'm excited because my blog will actually be helping me to do something that's important to me...documenting our family life through pictures. I'm hoping to use my blog to keep track of milestones in my kid's lives, too. *S*'s baby book is still empty and *L*'s is done up to the first year (she's 2 now). I know there are some things I can go back and look at from my blog. So, I'd like to make that something intentional from now on. I also want to have record of the funny stuff that happens in life. Helene has a hilarious blog where she often writes about the funny stuff her kids say and do. She has 2 sets of twins, so you can only imagine. She could publish her blog into a book and it would sell like crazy! So, I'm still cooking up my blog ideas. Any suggestions for other ways to use my blog to help me be an organized working mom with great photos and memories of my family? For those of you that blog, how do you use your blog to help you accomplish goals that you have?
