the Why of blogging

I had hesitated to even write a blog at all, but I just gotta get it out of me sometimes, and this is a good a place as any. The people said "write, you should write!" and so I am.
Before I chose this site, I looked at other portals, and it was hard to decide. See, I was worried about the content of other blogs and wondered if I wanted to be associated with a site that posts "whatever." ("Blessed is the man Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, Nor stands in the path of sinners, Nor sits in the seat of the scornful; But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and in His law he meditates day and night." Psalm 1:1,2)
However, I have looked around and found a gamut of topics and levels of content. Good friends Anna & Israel blog here, and I've found a few others - more - as well. OK, more than I could possibly list. Look around. Especially explore the blogs of others with similar interests. Just don't compare their writing skills/how interesting the people seem/etc. with me because I just don't stack up. There are some very clever folks out there!
On second thought, don't look around. The other blogs make mine look like the instructions on the back of baby cereal. Bland. Theirs is blogging with purpose. Inspired. With direction. Mine? The mundane day to day of a ma, her hens and her chicks. Just keep reading. It should get better. It HAS to.
Oh, and speaking of content, for overall computer safety and for managing content, I'd highly recommend BeSafeOnline's product. Very reasonable cost and great protection on multiple levels. Plus, the customer support can't be beat.

That's all for now. Gotta pick up the trashcan the baby just dumped over. She's chewing on something. Oh, a nail. I better get that.

  1. Hello Heidi! Thank you so much for linking me. I love the name of your blog.

    Great post, I feel the same about blogging sometimes. Yours is not all bland. I really enjoyed seeing your chickens. I actually had chickens as a child in Hawaii, believe it or not. Thanks for bringing back fond memories. :-)
