Back to Blogging

Obviously, I took a bit of a hiatus from blog writing.  Unfortunately, the hiatus was not intentional or planned.  Basically, I killed my computer.

While on my blogging break, a few fellow homeschooling moms and I were discussing life, and I mentioned that I write a blog to track of our activities.  During the discussion, one mom mentioned that my blog showed what a “good homeschooling mom” I am and that it would make the other mom feel like she was not good enough if she read it.  (She was not saying this to be negative at all.  It was all light-hearted and silly).

So the above conversation and the killing of my computer made me think about the importance of letting others know that our life is not our blog.   I write my blog for fun, but definitely not to brag or to be boastful in any way.  I do not want anyone to think that our life is all roses and hikes. We are a typical family of five who argue and get the house messy.   We all melt down. ( Hence-the dead computer.  I became frustrated after being lied to and back-talked to.  I walked into the kitchen and saw the perpetrator on the laptop.  From behind, I slammed the screen down to end the session.  And…….hard drive killed.  Mother….humbled.)

Bloggers still live life.  I try not to sugar coat too much, but I do want to respect my kids privacy.  They do not want me writing about their issues with school or life.  However, they are proud of their work and their activities, so I do share those.  As I get back into the world of blogging, I plan to be more aware of my stories.

  1. Always a hard line. I have so many stories I want to share, but I don’t want everyone who knows me to sit around and wonder if what they say or do will be fodder for my writing.—I get humbled that way all the time (your computer). Classic something I’d do.—Luckily, your blog is some of your life. Which means you have tons of happy memories and learning going on! Yay! —Terri
