For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord bestows grace and favor and glory - honor, splendor and heavenly bliss! No good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly.

My First Month of Blogging

Wow! I can't believe it's been a month already!

So how has it been, blogging every day for a month?

Well, it's way more interesting then I thought it would be. I guess I never really realized that there was this whole community aspect of blogging. I thought I would just write my little posts about my kids and recipe experiments, and keep a record for myself about our life. I never thought other people would be interested in it. I don't think of myself as being that interesting. I feel like my life is actually... pretty normal and boring. I'm not a world traveler, I don't have some sort of exciting profession, I'm not super beautiful, or super smart, or super talented in any way. And yes, I have twins. But so do a bunch of other people who are FAR more interesting than me! And I don't claim to be a super awesome mom either. I think I pretty much just barely get by, and my kids spend way too much time in front of the TV while I'm here writing stuff and reading stuff.

Anyway.. enough about me. :P

I just recently joined a network of Mom Bloggers. I'm really not sure what to think about it. I think generally speaking I'm way more interested in other people's blogs than other people are about mine! And I'm ok with that, I'm having a lot of fun filling up my blog reader and becoming a loyal follower. Be sure to check my side bar thingy for all the awesome blogs I've picked up along the way over the past month. There are certainly some good ones!

I also just signed up for Twitter today because somewhere I read that you could connect it with Facebook and enter your status updates on there? I have no idea how to do that, so if anyone does please let me know! lol I'm such a newb. Oh, and if you have Twitter look me up! I have like... no friends. ha ha!

I'm reading up on Mr. Linky and trying to figure out how it works. :) I'd really love to do one of those Carnival thingies! So in the next few weeks look for it, it's gonna happen! I've already decided that it will be a Spice Rack Challenge!!! Where I pull out a spice that I have no idea what to do with, and figure out something to do with it. It's gonna rock! So get ready, look through that ol' dusty spice rack, and start cookin' up new things so that you can join in the fun! It's gonna rock!

So I feel like I've learned a lot about this whole blogging thing over the past month, and I'm looking forward to learning more. My goal as always is to write every day. I think that it's good for my soul. Keeps me focused. Grounded. And overall requires discipline. It also keeps me thinking. Which I've found to be very important in the type of life I live where I often go a whole week without leaving the house and one can only take so much toddler babble before needing intellectual stimuli.

Thank you for joining me on this blogging journey and taking the time to read my ramblings! I do appreciate it! :)
