Why do I blog? Hmmm…. I touched on this here, but I suppose there is a bit more to it.

I started this blog because I was bored. I had been a full time Stay At Home Mom for 9 whole months when I started this blog. For 9 months, I had the job of raising and taking care of my 3 children, house and husband, but I was bored in the creativity output department of my brain. Before I stopped working to take care of my children, I had worked a full time job, non stop since I was 15 years old. So, I felt lacking, felt I needed a hobby and so I started this blog.

I blog to focus on the positive things in life. Ever since I can remember, my ultimate life goal is to be happy. Happiness is most definitely a state of mind, so focusing on happy, positive things is what I do. I want to share my happiness with my family, with my friends, with my blog readers. I will stop this paragraph now at the risk of sounding too cheesy.

I blog to journal special memories. I have a pretty crappy memory, and I am really bad at baby books. So, I blog to archive these memories on the internet for posterity. It’s fun to take a trip down memory lane every now and then and read back through my family posts and see how much we’ve grown, changed and learned.  ALSO… my family lives in a land far far away, so my blog is a way for them to keep in touch with me, see my children and share in our experiences from far away.

I blog for catharsis.
Ever have a bad day, tell someone about it and then feel so much better? Blogging is like that, but way more intense.

I blog to exercise my graphic skills. Before I was just Mommy, I was a graphic designer. I love to create cute, powerful and aesthetic things. Technology changes, trends change, styles change, so if I want to stay fluent in the graphic world, I have to stay at least somewhat active in it, too.

I blog to make new friends. This one is new. I didn’t expect it at all, but am loving the blogging community. It seems everyone is so friendly and supportive. It doesn’t feel competitive at all. And I’m loving it.
