To Blog or Not to Blog

Dan (my husband) read all my posts as I was getting ready to announce my blog, and he said, "Where is the one about you?" Hmmm. If I'm going to be honest, I just don't think of my life apart from being a wife and a mother. But I want to! I've wrestled for months about whether I should blog or not blog. The last thing I want to do is be more isolated from family and friends than I already am. A friend (thank you, Steph) gave me some very logical reasoning for how blogging does not have to hurt relationships, but can actually help them. That's my goal!! So in time you will read real blogs from me, that will include stories about my family, but have the intention of revealing who I am as a person.

Yeah!! Welcome to Bloggityville! I enjoyed reading what's going on with you. The picture in the sidebar is so cute. I can't wait to hear more about life in S.D.

This is great, Alicia! I've found blogging to be just an additional way to communicate with family and friends, and I think it has enhanced relationships rather than replacing or weakening them. Since I've never been comfortable with picking up the phone anyway, it's nice to have another way to communicate.

Alicia, This is Rebekah... I feel like my blog has helped me keep in touch with people all over. It's neat to hear some of their deeper thoughts that you wouldn't necessarily hear in 10 minute conversations here and there. It's neat to understand what's going on inside and how God is working in their lives...I think it's definitely a good thing!
