But, as I thought about it, I decided that I really do have other reasons for blogging. Some of these reasons, such as keeping my family up-to-date on our doings, do not require a bigger audience. In fact, trying to get a bigger audience for that type of blog would seem a bit odd (to me at least). But I write about more than just what my family is up to. Depending on how it's divided up, I write about five other main subjects:
- Homemaking and parenting
- Large families
Reading all this makes me realize how far short of these lofty goals I regularly fall. But I cannot succeed if I never try, so I will continue trying. And I find that it's OK to want others to read this. I know I gain great support and often some great parenting tips by reading other mom's blogs. I'd like to think I can offer that kind of support myself.
