The SITS girls posed a question on their blog for today that really got me thinking why do I do this?
Well it all started with cancer, Mark (my first husband) was diagnosed with cancer just after I turned 21. I could handle the day to day but calling all of the people who were close to us each time we had an update was just too much. So we started a blog to keep everyone aware of what was going on. It was crazy, my parents have lived a life ‘on stage’ in the Church and we had hundreds of people checking our blog weekly. Towards the end it was a good outlet and a great way to let people know, in fact I just couldn’t handle telling people he had passed. I called those who it was necessary to tell on the phone and then it went up on the blog.
After that I kept going because people wanted to know how I was doing, it was a great way to stay connected to the world when I was home alone. It was an easy way to stay connected without having to leave the house, that was to hard.
After a while when I started to ‘live’ again it was a way for me to challenge myself. I wanted to be green but I didn’t know much about it so this was a way for me to learn. If I started a green blog I had to learn more so I could post….From there it has grown. It is still a challenge Its a way for me to take hold of my life. I want to do more crafts so I start blogging about crafts. I’m a greenine and I want to keep getting greener so I blog about it. What can I say I’m addicted.
