I've been blogging for three months now and I love it! I was a lurker for a while, reading but never commenting. Then I started to comment. Then I started to blog. And I've 'met' so many really fun, really interesting people!
But I've also learned that I have a lot to learn! There are so many 'bloggerisms' to figure out. People tag and get tagged. There are blog memes. Thursday Thirteens. Stuff Portrait Fridays. HNT (and the more daring ...the other HNT). There are parent bloggers and mommy bloggers. Blog rings. Blog Talk Radio. Michele's Three Day Meet & Greet. And so much more.
I've not done any of these except the Meet & Greet (trust me, you don't want me doing HNT!!). But I've had a lot of fun learning about them. It is great to read what others say when they do these and interesting to see all the photos they share.
And I'm a parent. Sometimes I write about my kids. But I don't think of myself as a parent blogger cause I write more about me and my experiences...and sometimes that just happens to involve the kids.
Bottom line - I'm having fun. When I began, I wondered if I would write a week or two and then just fizzle. Lose interest. But damn, I find that my blog time - whether reading, writing, or both - has become a really nice part of my day! I look forward to it...and have a bit of withdrawal if I don't get it!!
So to all of you who have commented here and/or who write such great blogs that I visit all the time (and continue to discover more!)....THANK YOU! I love my new neighborhood!!
