My public

I've been feeling a bit uninspired in my blog writing lately. I think it's partially because I've been reading a lot of other mom blogs (there are so many) and they are so well written. Someone was asking me what I get out of reading blogs about motherhood that are written by people that I don't know, and I think the answer is a) it's nice to know that there are others out there who are experiencing what I'm experiencing. As many new moms as I know right now, their experiences are so extremely varying that its nice to have an even wider net to cast for information and b) they are good writers! I enjoy their humour, wit; the way they can tell a story. Only problem is, sometimes it makes me want to be like them. I want to write these great posts, ones worthy of a following. So I try to think about what to blog about, and I get overwhelmed with the possibilities, or the lack thereof and just don't blog.
So I don't think I'm going to be the next big momma blogger - so much for that as my next career ;) And believe it or not, there are people who do mommy blog for a living.
But instead I can ramble on, and know that there are a bunch of you, people I know and who know K, that read to find out what's going on with us. And I know that this will be a great record of how things went in my first year as a mother. And I don't need to have themes for each post, and I don't have to have fancy titles. You'll still find me amusing, right? :)

Ok, enough woe is me crap :)

I don't know about other people who read your blog but I get very excited when I see you've posted a new one. Even if it's about something you've already told me I enjoy reading it with the great headings and you do make it all very fun to read about. I definitely could not do it knowing other people were going to read it so all the more power to you and anyone else who is able to blog.

I look at your blog everyday. I am sometimes disapointed when I see you have not blogged. I find it very entertaining.

Even though I talk to you every day, and see you and Kiernan most days, I still look at your blog daily and am disappointed when I don't see a new post. You do write well, and even better you take FABULOUS photos of Kiernan!

Lara!
I haven't even met your little man, or your big one for that matter - so I rely on these postings to find out what's new in your lives - and I love knowing! Keep it up, you don't realize that you are an awesome storyteller! And I agree with Vicki, your pictures are FANTASTIC! Love and hugs!
