I have had alot of people ask me questions about blogging. Most often I hear, “Why do you take the time to blog?” and “How in the world do you have time to blog?” Well, I decided to answer both those questions right here!
First, why do I blog? I blog for different reasons, but the main reason is because I scrapbook? So, what is the connection with blogging and scrapbooking? I am a few years behind in my scrapbooking and I find that when I try to journal about events that took place years ago, I can’t really think of anything to say. So, I decided to use my blog to write about the things that I hope to scrapbook one day. So, whenever I get around to scrapbooking a particular event or picture, I can just go back to my blog, make a few minor changes (like adding in the kid’s real names), copy, paste, print and add it to my scrapbook pages. It just keeps me from having to remember the details of events that took place years prior! 🙂
As for the second question, I tend to blog in the evenings after the kids go to bed. I tend to make at least two or three blog entries in one sitting, but I schedule them to start/post on different days. That way, it appears that I am blogging regularly, when in actuality, I only get around to doing it maybe once a week or so.
So, now, my secrets are out! 🙂 But, I am wondering do YOU blog and if so, why and when do YOU do it?
