I’m brand new to blogging (1 month now). It’s National Blog Posting Month (November) so I’m diving in and trying to post EVERY day. I have a new Macbook (thanks honey!) so I don’t share the home PC with our 5 teenagers anymore. (Freedom!) I want you to know I’m on a learning curve and loving it.
I love the connection stay at home moms have through blogging. I think it’s healthy in so many ways. It enables you to “get out of the house” more often. I particulaly like blogging, because I can do it at my leisure. The kids don’t suffer (usually…) and I can work on it in the middle of the night when my body’s not in the sleeping mode. I’m convinced – it’s good for the brain. They’ll have research verifying this someday, I’m sure.
I want to know what you think. What challenges you have and what you’d like to see covered. Please contact me with your ideas!
I’m not really into contests – so I don’t imagine I’ll have many of those. I don’t do “bells and whistles” real well either – so you won’t find a bunch of those on this site. I DO want to have depth of content and address the WHY more than the HOW. That’s what you’ll find here. I will pepper my ideals with daily living though – this stuff is real … very real.
I’m doing this to help. I want to say things I wish I’d heard years ago. I don’t have all the answers – noone does.
I have so many ideas, I’m not sure where to start. Bear with me as I stumble through the tedious process of learning blogging. Darcy, who designed this blog, can attest I just know enough to be dangerous! BUT – I’m a fast learner!! All homeschool moms are. 🙂
I’m not in this to make a name for myself – my kids do that for me. I’m honored to be nominated for The Best New Homeschool Blog by The Homeschool Post. IF you think Above and Beyond is worthy of this title – please vote. Tomorrow’s the last day.
If you voted for me already- THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! It’s a huge boost of confidence for this beginner and given me the courage to DIVE IN!!
