Why a blog?

Well, here I am with yet another form of electronic communication . . . why do I give myself another reason to be distracted from everything else that keeps me busy?!? Although I'm not really sure about that answer, I am really excited to have a blog. I got the idea to start one because my friend, Francis (http://www.aneclecticmom.blogspot.com/), has one and I've found out how fun it is to check her blog every few days to catch up on the latest news. Also, I've heard that blogging is a great way to painlessly document the daily details of our family. Since I'm a family historian through and through, this idea appeals to me immensely.

I'm not sure how faithful I will be at maintaining my blog, but I'll try to at least update it once a week (maybe more?). I want to have the opportunity to share with friends and family through the blog, but I have committed that it will not be continued if it begins to distract from my family time, my business (http://www.mylifemoments.net/), or my house-keeping. When I tell the boys, "just one more minute" or put editing pictures on the back-burner or lose a child within the piles of dirty laundry because I'm busy blogging, I know I will have to be more disiplined with my electronic commitments. But, until then, here goes nothing . . .

Welcome to blogville! I look forward to hearing from you more often via your blog. If my bookmarked blogs list continues to grow, I may have to drink more chai since thats my excuse for sitting and gazing at the computer every morning. ;-)

one more thing- love your picture and layout!

Thanks, I had fun playing around with the layout last night and again this morning . . . not a good start at keeping my computer time limited! I haven't gotten much accomplished today, but we did go to the park for a few hours so I feel a little justified staring at the computer screen again. :)

Ashley (my business partner) took the picture. I'll pass your praise on to her. :)

Welcome to the world of blogging! I keep a few blogs myself - the blogging itself doesn't take up much time - it's the reading of OTHER blogs that takes up SO much time!

Heather said...

Can you send me the link to your blog, Sonyia? I'd love to check it out!

Hey heather. I've got a blog too. So glad to have found yours. Ben and I are considering homeschooling for Canaan. It will be nice to hear your views and experiences.
