NaBloPoMo

I can just see everyone wondering to themselves, "huh????  What the heck is NaBloPoMo???"  Well let me set you straight.  NaBloPoMo is short for National Blog Posting Month.  It's a challenge put out by the lovely ladies at BlogHer to blog every day through the month of November.  The theme is "blogging for blogging's sake" and is about getting into the habit of blogging, working on your writing skills, and having fun all at the same time!  And so, this year, I thought I'd join the looooong list of people taking part in NaBloPoMo.

There are writing prompts every day- whether I'll actually write about the prompt topics or not, who knows?  We'll see how things go.... Today, though, the prompt is "What is your favorite part about writing?"  For me, the answer depends on what I'm writing about.

On the days that my blog mainly consists of photos of our life and updates on what we're up to, my favorite part about writing is that I'm saving all of these memories that we're creating as a family.  And I'm sharing them with family and friends around the world who love and care about us.  So even though Nana and Pappy don't get to hear first hand all the hilarious things LP says, they get to read about them on my blog.

When I blog about craft and sewing projects, I love that I'm sharing creative ideas with my blog readers.  And, I'll admit, I love when people tell me that my projects are great- in a house of guys who don't really notice too much how things look, it's nice to get compliments somewhere!

And when I'm blogging about motherhood, infertility, feelings of guilt, etc., my favorite part about writing is the feeling I have once that post is published.  When I share these more intimate thoughts on my blog I feel as though some of the stress and struggle of carrying these feelings around on my shoulders has been released into the atmosphere somehow, and I'm able to stop obsessing over things in my head and can just relax and enjoy life.  Sometimes you just have to clear the air, you know?

So for me, writing this blog is a way to share all the bits and pieces of our lives- the mundane, the creative, the thoughtful, the funny, and every thing else.....

And because I always have to share a photo of LP, here's one from trick-or-treat last night of my little ghost and his buddies the monster and the butterfly:
