Finding My Voice.

Sitting down to write after watching "American Blogger" last night is making me look at blogging with fresh new eyes. I have this little space on the internet and I can do what I want with it. I can write our story. I can share our life and that makes me excited!

The movie was so inspirational and really made me think. When I moved from Live Journal to Blogger a few years ago I was unsure of the move and felt intimidated by putting myself out there for the whole world to see. In all honesty I still feel that way. I haven't found my voice yet and I think I've been scared too. American Blogger made me realise that for me to do myself or my blog any justice then I need to find my voice, I need to put myself out there. I love blogging and it brings me such joy, why would I not want to put my whole self into it?

There are so many great blogs out there and the woman writing them all seem so put together, so sure of themselves that I always find myself comparing, which I shouldn't do. Nearly everyone on the movie last night spoke about the community within blogging. The friendships that are created by people living hundreds or thousands of miles apart from each other. That's one of the biggest reasons that I love the internet and social media. I've written a few posts where women have responded with a "Me too!" and it's awesome how by sharing our hopes, our fears, our struggles and our achievements we can bring so many people together.

I went to bed feeling inspired and this morning that feeling has continued. There is still a lot I want to write on this subject but right now I'm having trouble putting it all into words.

Some photos from the weekend :)

{baby pears!} 

It's been an exciting morning in our house! I have some news to share tomorrow!

  1. I was inspired by it, too! I thought it was interesting, but I have to say, it wasn't exactly what I was expecting. Then this weekend, I met two of the women who were on on the movie at a blog conference - so cool! :)



Thank you for taking the time to read and comment! I read every single message that is left for me and try to respond to everyone :)
