My Simple Blog Story

I got this from Kailani, who got it from Chili of Don’t Try This At Home. Instead of a regular tag our it, it was turned into a group carnival. So why don't you join in. Write our blogging story then sign theMr. Linky here.

I'm jumping in a bit late in the game, but better late than never. Right????

Tell Your Blogging Story

How did you start blogging?
I honestly don't remember. I know that I read a few blogs and figures that this would be a great way to journal my days.

Did you intend to be a blog w/a following? If so, how did you go about it?
No, not at all. Like I said, I was just documenting my day to day life. Mainly for me. I'm so happ that I have made a few blog buddies in the process.

What do you hope to achieve or accomplish with your blog? Have you been successful? If not, do you have a plan to achieve those goals?
I never really had any goals, per se. My one goal was to keep up with the blog. With a few exceptions, I have done that. So I suppose that my goals have been met.

Has the focus of your blog changed since you started blogging? How?
Not at all. It's still just about my own sometimes boring life. But it's my life and I like going back and seeing what I was doing & thinking on certain days. I LOVE contests & that is one thing that I have been sharing on my blog lately as well.

What do you know now that you wish you'd known when you started?
I only wish that I had decided to start blogging earlier.

Do you make money with your blog?
Nope, don't know how to do that.

Does your immediate or extended family know about your blog? If so, do they read it? If not, why?
Well, my daughter snoops around sometimes but not often. My husband knows about it but does not read. My mom is constantly lost in cyberspace. So I guess that the answer is yes to knowing about it & no to reading.

What two pieces of advice would you give to a new blogger?
I am a fairly new blogger. I have only been blogging for a little over a year. My only advice is JUST DO IT! I am totally clueless and through trial & error, I have gotten my blog into somewhat acceptable shape. I haven't changed much, since I don't remember how I did it in the first place. :)
Also, if you visit someone, just say hi and let them know that you are visiting their "home". Comments are quick and easy & brighten peoples days.

Don't forget to sign my new Guestbook at the bottom of the page!
I would love to see who visits.

Thanks for sharing your story. I can't believe you are the mother of teenagers. You look so youthful in your picture!

Great story! I enjoyed reading, and wanted to say thanks for your comment on my site. I love being a mom to teenagers -- except that they grow up so quickly! Nice to "meet" you.

I'm finding that I've visited many of the participants and THOUGHT I left comments, but as I come back, I realize I DID NOT. Sorry about that.

I love reading these stories! Thanks for playing along. I love your slide show in the sidebar!

I am really enjoying cruising around reading everyone's stories. I'm even later than you . . . but posted mine today, so c'mon by!

"I only wish that I had decided to start blogging earlier."

Now ain't that the truth!

And I am utterly jealous of all your travel pictures. I thought I'd just get that out of my system now... (But they're cute pictures!)
