So I have decided to start blogging again. There were a myriad of reasons why I stopped. Life got a little crazy. A tiny little tornado came into my life and pretty much turned it upside down-which I am totally ok with, by the way. In that regard, I've found a new normal, as a working mama, and it is good. I also stopped because I was unsure of the blog's purpose, and wasn't enjoying it as much. Did I want it to be more intellectual, personal, a platform for expressing beliefs and opinions? I stopped because in many ways I think my generation and also our culture has become awfully narcissistic. I struggled a bit with feeling I am contributing to that by having a personal blog. It is also a bit nerve-wracking to put personal thoughts and musings out there in perpetuity. I realized that when I looked back a few weeks ago at an old blog I kept back in my early college years that is still alive out there in cyberspace--now THAT was entertaining to read! I can unfortunately be prideful at times, and a fear of sounding dumb, conceited, boring, fill-in-the-blank with whatever unfavorable term--also was a reason that I stopped.
I can't promise that this blog will be particularly funny, or interesting, or entertaining. But it will be a window into my crazy little brain, and also an update of what is going on in my little family. I hope to write some posts that are simply updates on our life, and some, like this one I wrote a while back, that delve into more important issues. So if you care to read, I hope you will enjoy it!
