What do I want from this....

So...what do I want from this blog?  Why did I start this blog?  Who in the world will read this blog?

These have been the question's I've been asking myself I thought I would share my thoughts for those of you out there.

What do I want from this blog? - At this point, I just want to keep a record of the things we experience as a family and the crazy thoughts that run through my head (and yes, some are crazy).  Share fun and not so fun stories, and cute things the kids & Troy have done.  I've always heard people tell parents to "write things down" so this is my version...because if I actually wrote it down, I'd throw it in some drawer somewhere and find it 10-15 years from now.  I would like to get some more feedback from my readers, and some more followers just so maybe I felt like someone else was enjoying this as much as myself...but then again, I'm doing this more for myself & family.

Why did I start this blog? - I actually started this years ago when O was a baby to share pics w/friends and family without overloading their inboxes.  I got behind (kinda where I am now) and could never catch up, so I just quit...while pregnant w/Brynnleigh, I started reading other blogs, which inspired me to re-start my own.  Well, trying to keep up a blog, work full time, work a direct selling job, train for a 1/2 marathon, scrapbook, coupon, AND spend time as a family....well it's a tad tough!  I do enjoy the blog, and I know that Troy enjoys reading it from time to time, so I don't want to give up/stop.  I do have some very anal issues and do not like to blog out of chronological order...but I also don't want to be blogging about something that happened 2-3 months ago!  I'm not going to lie, I wouldn't mind if my blog became "famous" in the blogging world, but I'm pretty sure I would need to catch up those 2-3 months I'm behind before that's even a thought!

Who in the world will read this blog? - Well I know of at least one....Troy...and even though he's part of this blog, I'm glad he reads it & shares with his friends.  I know of a few more of you that read this...and I know there are some of you out there in the cyber world that i don't even know...thanks for giving my blog a shot...and I really do hope to have some interesting posts coming soon...and if nothing else, pics of my babies!! : )

So, with that out my readers...who are you?  What would you like to see out of my blog?  Any questions you'd like for me to answer?  Also, how bout becoming a follower (if you like my blog that is) always makes me happy when I see I have someone new, or a comment!!

Like your blog, my blog also displays posts in order based on the date I assigned them. I use TypePad for my blog which allows me to backdate posts. It's super useful as I fill-in some of the more quiet periods. I do this all the time! For example, I actually posted about Irene on Thursday BUT, to my readers, it looks like I posted it on Monday. Muhahahaha. I imagine Blogspot has similar functionality. One point of clarification - RSS subscribers can see right through this tactic.

By the way, I'd love to read about Troy making a heroes return to soccer greatness. Who knows? Perhaps that would motivate me to come to VA for an alumni game.

I am now a public follower! I love reading blogs. It's a great way to stay in touch and see what's going on in your family. I love the pics of the little ones!!

For me personally, I would love to see a post about your super duper coupon ways!

I think you should keep it up when you have the time because it will be a great way to go back and see what was going on.
