I want to thank the lovely Mari & Stephanie for highlighting my blog this month! You ladies are wonderful & have been so patient with me this month. Thank you!
This has been a busy summer, as I’m sure it has been for you, too. I’ve coined this the “Summer to Savor”, as my oldest will be starting kindergarten in the fall and I know that will bring lots of changes to our family.
In an effort to spend more intentional time with my family & friends, especially this month, blogging has taken a backseat. It’s been very quiet around The Strong Family this summer. That will be changing, though, so I hope you’ll follow along as I pick back up, blogging about a variety of things.
There are a few things I love about blogging & they are the reasons I keep coming back.
Voice: I love staying home with my kiddos everyday, but I also love sharing my voice, life, with others.. Blogging provides me a space to share what’s happening in our life, in my heart, in the kitchen or a myriad of other things I might want to share.
Community: I love the community I found within the blogging world. I’ve become connected with women all over the world whom I never would have met were it not for blogging.
Challenge: Blogging challenges me in ways I wouldn’t have imagined. I’m challenged to be creative with the content I write, challenged with my time management, challenged by other bloggers I come in contact with, etc.
This certainly isn’t an exhaustive list, but rather the top three things I love about blogging.
What about you? Why do you blog?
