So, I’m really doing this . . . writing a blog post, I mean. I’ve written thousands of things in my lifetime: grade school compositions, high school term papers, a college thesis, law review notes, legal briefs, and closing arguments to name a few. More recently, however, my writing has been confined to grocery shopping lists and status updates.
When I was invited to take part in World Mom’s Blog, I was intrigued and also a little intimidated. It has been almost two years since I’ve written much more than a text message arranging a play date or a meet-up with another stay at home mom for a cup of coffee and a trip to the swings.
I love reading all different types of blogs. I’ve been a long time regular reader of blogs written by lawyers, parents, political pundits, women struggling with infertility, fashionistas and military wives. I have often wondered what motivates someone to add their voice to the cacophony out there in cyberspace. For me, I finally decided to contribute to the blog because, like so many of us stay at home mommies, I found I needed an outlet to express myself.
