How and why I blog
I’ve had people ask me some great questions about blogging so I thought I would take a minute and answer them.
How do you find time to Blog:
I can not tell you how many times a friend or family member has said to me ” how in the world do you find time to blog?” Well, this is my answer….
I never, ever under any circumstances watch Television. period.
It’s amazing the extra time you can find when you don’t have a TV in the house:))
I blog early in the morning (like in this photo) and late at night to avoid having my computer on during the day. Oh, I keep a blogging Journal in the Kitchen and on top of my computer; I write my thoughts, ideas and blogging to-dos in those so I won’t forget or lose my ideas in the midst of the Circus that is my life some days..haha!
What do you blog about:
I blog about the Magic in the ordinary day. I search it out and some days it’s harder to find than others but it’s always there if you are looking. I blog about my Journey here and I try to do it with as much honesty and love as possible.
We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures that we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open.” ~Jawaharlal Nehru
Why do you put so many links and quotes in your posts:
I love to read and I wish I could write. If I was ever to get an extra talent late in life, I really, really hope it is the ability to write. Quotes say what I am feeling but don’t have the ability to put into words. I try to be oh so careful where I am getting these quotes ( aka never facebook) most of them come from books that I have here at the house, that way I can be sure of where they came from. If not, I find them on the internet and I am super picky so it takes me awhile to find ones I like. I have a notes post unpublished where I keep my quotes and ideas ( hopefully I never publish it be mistake, that would be embarrassing)
Why Links…..oh, well because I can..jk I love supporting small family owned businesses that make their products by hand. It makes me feel like I am helping them out.
Oh, and I link to my blogging friends cause I love them and I think you will too if you get to know them
Who are you writing to
To you, to me, to the friends I have and the ones I haven’t met yet, to my family, to my husband, to my Daughters and to my son.
Writing to the friend who has chosen a path that no one else in the world seems to be on and they like me are needing a like minded friend or just someone to hear them out, to my family who thinks they know me but don’t and who will probably never read this..haha, to my love who really wants to know me better, to my children who may someday want to know who I was and what I was thinking when they were young, and for me because I want to record and remember..you, them, this, that and some more of all of this beauty:)))
If you would not be forgotten as soon as you are dead, either write something worth reading or do things worth writing.
What is your blogging Mission:
The hell if I know..haha!
I guess if you pinned me down and made me answer, I would say…
To inspire, to Share the finding and holding onto of Magic, to encourage anyone reading to take time out of their busy days to connect with the Earth and Each other, to find and fall in love with their Creator, to love themselves and to follow their hearts, to wave a banner in support of healthy raw living, to breathe LIFE & JOY into this role as MAMA, to share my gratitude for every single second I am given, to leave a record of my Journey here in this “Magic in a Bottle” that I call my blog.
Walk Barefoot on the Earth……and listen
