I was recently at a blogging conference and the most common question (naturally) was, “What’s your blog about?” Sometimes I get confused about this blog and what it is supposed to be and what I want it to be. Well, this definitely isn’t a business blog. I don’t have an obvious niche, like travel, fitness, or fashion. I don’t attempt to give out advice or counsel. I guess I would be classified as a “Mommy Blogger” because, well, most of my posts are about my family and home. Just a Mommy Blogger, not a Super Mommy Blogger.
I’m not one of those bloggers. You know what I mean. Super Mommy who does everything and does it well. “I homeschool my 13 children, except for the 14-year old who is in college. Last week I taught the 8 month old and the dog how to use the toilet. My husband and I built our own home from the trees we cut down on our property and hand-planed. I garden, can, dry food, bake bread, grind my own flour, and I am a master winemaker. I make my own laundry detergent, dish soap, shampoo, household cleaner, furniture polish, furniture, soap, and toilet paper. I am an extreme couponer and rebater. Our meals are planned, prepared, and frozen six months in advance. My hobbies include scrapbooking, quilting, archery, recycling, rope-making, back-packing through Europe, and rebuilding passenger airliners. I also make scarves out of dryer lint. I donate blood daily and send care packages to the troops overseas every week. I am the Scoutmaster for 2 Cub Scout troops and lead a 4H club. In my spare time, I help under-privileged animals by hand-making clothing for naked mole rats. And I work full-time.”
Yeah…that’s not me. I just talk about my plain, regular life. My life. Sometimes I might share a recipe or project, or inspire my readers in some way. My blog may be humorous, poignant, or gross at times, but it is what it is. It represents me. Faith, family, home…I’m working on it! Hopefully, you find it worth your time to read.
