I wish I could type up these posts that are full of life and all puffy and great... unfortunately my blog has had some reductions. To list a few... pictures, posts, and most of all comments and traffic.
I'm not sure what has happened. I know that my blog isn't as hilarious or witty as others. I know it damn sure isn't as well written as some. But, in all realness does that matter? Will that matter in a few years when my son can read and I show him some funny posts about him and his sisters? NOPE!
I'm so consumed with trying to please the readers, or actually GET the readers and get comments and feed back that I'm obsessing over it more than I'm typing about the great, cute, funny, crazy, smart, sweet things that my wonderful children are doing.
I started a blog so I had a place to come and brag about my children without feeling like I was boasting too much. Also so I could share photos with friends and family and have a way to look back on them as the kids get older. A place to vent and shed some stress. I started blogging, just for me, for my family and for a few of the friends that read this. Now I'm becoming an attention whore and wanting everyone to come read my posts.
Nothing against any of you... (whom ever is reading this) I do love you all, and love reading your blogs and actual do enjoy your comments, BUT I'm not blogging for you, well I am, but it wasn't my true intention. I try to tell the story about what happens in our lives in a way that will grab your attention, and really that isn't what I need to be doing. I need to tell the story so that when we look back we laugh and have the fondest memories of it.
So from now, I'm just going to blog about our lives. Plain and simple, and honestly that is what this blog will probably be like too... plain and simple and possibly very boring to the average outsider... but to us, it will be the keeper of our memories. :)
