5 Reasons I Blog...

I've been tagged.

This is a first...I have yet to partake in a meme (rhymes with dream...according to Chilihead), and I really do think they're a great way of letting others know more about you.

(Fiddle Deedee was the tagger, and I couldn't be happier to be concede with her wishes.....Your wish is my command Deedee...)

Here goes, ...5 Reasons I Blog...


#1. Spilling the News ~ I began blogging at the conception of my son Gabriel. I had a wonderful blog entry on a beautiful blog laden with beautiful pictures, detailing the beginning of my beautiful pregnancy. My reason for posting was to tell my cousin Bianca about our wonderful news. I (ideally) was to write something poetic and profound, and I would have her go to the link to find out about our 'surprise', and then she would cry, and I would cry, and she'd be so happy and I'd be so happy...
Then she found out through other means. And my blog was unnecessary...and ridiculous. So...there it ended, until this past summer.

#2. Summer ~ In the summer past, I had wonderful ideas of being poetic and profound (ahem..I see a pattern..) and I began blogging about my life on our farm...it was deep. I shared the link with my Mom, who graciously told me it was too deep. The more people I shared the link with ....the lighter the material got....that brings me to now, and you can see how clowny and ridiculous some of my posts are. I hope you still read them.

#3. I Have Something To Say ~ ....sometimes. And it helps to know you are out there reading me. It's a catharsis,...a cleansing of the soul on some occasions, and an outlet of my incredible, top notch potty humour. You know you love it.

#4. My Children ~ I want them to have the connection to their childhood, the every day mundane events, and the 'blow yer mind' events, right here. Poured lovingly from my heart through my fingertips..... perhaps saved in a binder one day. Guess I'd better start printing them now.

#5. I need Something To Do ~ Let's be honest, as hard as it is to raise children, I do have a few spare minutes in a day that I have absolutely NO IDEA what to do with...or maybe I'm trying to find time away from my children....blogging is me time, as sad as that may seem to you people with real lives.

There, now you know.

Leanne,
You're a phenomenal writer, and one day when the kids are grown up or you have more time on your hands, you should seriously consider writing a novel... I'd read it! I enjoy checking out your blog to see what you're up to. Anyway, I thought I'd just mention that you've a way with words.

I just knew you'd do a phenomenol job with this. You are poetic and profound, even when you're talking about the every day crud. Awesome job. I really liked #5!

Blogger should install spell check for the commenters. I meant "phenomenal."
