Who do I write this blog for?
Well to some degree, I write for you. Yes you. The one reading this. I am aware that there are people out there (aside from my Mom) who actually read my blog.
I mainly write for myself. I enjoy it and this has really become my legacy to my girls. When I forget to update their baby books, I can be sure that I have mentioned their milestone here. I might not be able to nail it down to the precise minute or even day, but I can get the month and that helps me create their timeline.
I have grown to love my blog. It’s mine and it doesn’t matter what I choose to write about because at the end of the day, I am truly doing this for me.
Just over a year ago, when I moved to my own domain, I really felt like this was mine! I pay for it and it belongs to me. I jumped into reviews and giveaways and quickly realized that reviews really were not my style. I do not mind doing them, but I much rather be involved with giving away things to all of you. I would much rather do a review that includes a giveaway.
It’s time-consuming. It takes so much time to track down sponsors. Weed through emails to find a giveaway that I think that my readers will benefit from. Not to mention, I had some difficulties with my winners actually receiving their gift. So, I keep my eye open for a good giveaway and I hope to bring that back again.
Right now, though, my time is precious. I work away from home 9 hours a day at least 4 days a week. Our family spends up to 6 hours a week away from the house at various activities for the girls. That doesn’t include the travel time to get there. If I added in driving time, I would be adding at least another 6 hours to that. We spend 12 hours of our day sleeping (well, me only if I am lucky), add to that a household to run, laundry, meals…. time is precious. As many of you busy families know.
So, mostly, I blog for me. Who do you blog for?
