WHY I BLOG

The ol' blog...well...has been a bit dry lately.

And trust me, I have totally psychoanalyzed the crap out of it to determine why.

I had a blog idea brewing for earlier this week, and then clicked on one of the many blogs in my blogroll 
and saw the exact same topic already written out.  Crap!  So I did what any narcissistic blogger would do and delved into my archives... searching for a post to submit... and came up empty.  Wah-wah-wahhhh.


You see folks, I am not a poetic writer.  I realize that I don't hypnotize anyone with my prose.  I'm pretty much bare bones.  I tell stories.  About me.  About my life.  About being a mother.  A wife.  A friend.  A working woman.  A product consumer.

There's not much here that constitutes artistry.  A flowing of words that entrances you with their splendor.

Nope.

What am I doing with this space?!?!?!

But then I remembered WHY.  Why I blog.  What I get out of blogging.

I do this for me

And?

For you. 

I want my readers to laugh.  I want my readers to shake their heads in agreement.  I want you guys to say, "ah, that's exactly how I feel but couldn't put it into words."  I want to share my experiences with parenting and products, because as you know, everyone tries to sell you.  I want my readers to understand that they are not alone.  That I, like you, have been there.  That no one is a perfect parent.  That no one has perfect children.  That no one has a perfect body.  Or a perfect home.  In all its splendor and glory, sometimes life stinks.  It's beautiful and rewarding, but motherhood isn't all it's cracked up to be at times.  It is hard, yo.  But on the heels of that, be a friendly reminder that our kids do some pretty magnificent things.  Magical even.  That it's okay to serve cheerios for dinner every once in a while.  That our husbands rock!  And that we're beautiful, oh so beautiful...just. the. way. we. are.

So THAT.  That's why I'm here, dammit.

No apologies.
