To be or not to be...


A blogger or not to blog. That is the question. I love to blog. When I first started blogging, it was to stay in touch with family and friends. It was an opportunity to create an ongoing journal of our lives. Behind the scenes was my desire to go back to school. My reasoning was I needed to feel challenged again. I needed to feel like I was accomplishing more than a load of laundry or a sink full of dishes. I recently found that challenge. With writing reviews, I have something that I can call my own. I think that some people are a little confused on bloggers that write reviews. Personally I don't always write reviews on items that are just given to me. I have bought some items and after finding how much I love the product, wrote a review. I have received items at no monetary value but I would never consider it free. I have worked hard for these items. I have to network so I can promote my blog and my sponsors. Writing a review, is also hard. I strive to make each review better and better. I may not always accomplish that but I'm going to try! Staying organized is also a key! I have to work out scheduling as well. Organization doesn't come easily for me. But it is yet one more challenge that blogging has made me face. I know that in the end, it will make me a better person if not mom. I think the biggest plus in writing reviews is not the items I receive but the women that I have met along the way! They are such a great support system and I will never forget it. Now I'm off to fulfill my needs as mommy so I can get back and help share more great products and my life with you!
