75! Have I really written 74 blogs? It feels like I’ve just started this blogging thing. I remember meeting my friend Mandy in the park when Jackson was about six months old and her telling me all about her blog. She encouraged me for weeks to share my stories. Now, Jackson is three, no longer in diapers, Marley is in pre-k, and learning Braille, and I’m sitting here writing my 75th blog.
Crazy! Time sure does fly when you’re having fun blogging.
Some of you may have been with me from the beginning, and many of you have just recently started following my blog. I would like to thank each and every one of you for taking the time to read my ramblings.
As many of you have noticed, I’ve been writing much more frequently than before. I’ve said it out loud, but now I’m going to put into words of my intentions. Blogging is a fun outlet for my creative fingers to type away any stress or funny moments that may be currently passing through my life. I’ve feared that if I take it to the next level of blogging, it will turn into a job, and no longer be fun. Time to kick that fear out of the driver seat and take my blogging to that next level. Over the weekend, I’ve created a Facebook page. Today, I purchesed my own domain so that Blind Mom in the Burbs is no longer at a .wordpress.com, but at it’s own .com. The results of posting more frequently, I’ve gained more traffic, in turn more followers. Drumroll please…and the final goal of all of this…to in the some day soon to be near future get picked up by a publishing company for these awesome words of mine and make a little bit of money from my musings. I’ve always dreamt of becoming a published author, so here I go. Wich me luck.
It’s taken me 2,5 years to publish 75 blogs. Get ready for some fun, because in the next 75 days I’ll be here sharing recipes, fashion do’s and don’ts, seeking advice, venting, laughing along with you as you read, blog give aways, and so much more!
Below are my 10 favorite blogs from the last few years, in no particular order.
