To blog or not to blog?

To blog or not to blog--that is my question of the day. So many of my friends have tried to get me to blog for years. I have attempted it several times, but I just haven't had the self-discipline to keep on it. I actually started this blog towards the end of my pregnancy with Emma Brooke, but I only wrote a few posts.

Will and I then had our odomsonmission website/blog while we were in Vancouver. I did pretty well with that one when we first arrived in Canada, but after things got busy there, I wasn't as good at keeping it up either.

Why am I attempting again? Well, there are several reasons:

1) I am now a full-time stay-at-home mom, which actually gives me a little more time to write.

2) God has blessed us with friends and family that live all over the world! We've been using facebook to keep up with many of these loved one, but I have realized that my status updates were getting a little long, and a blog might be a more appropriate place to let others know what is going on with us.

3) I graduated from Gardner-Webb University in 2003 with a double major in journalism and Spanish. While I kept up with Spanish pretty well over the past 6 1/2 years, writing is a love that has all but died. Since I am now at home, I have thought about trying to rekindle that passion and try my hand at freelance work. What better way to re-hone my skills than by starting a family blog?

So, there....for those who have asked or for those who don't really care. That's why I have re-started a blog. We will see how long it lasts this time!
