So I realized late last night that I hadn't followed through with this commenting challenge...oops! Life happens...but I'm here now playing catch-up.
Day 2: About this blog, why I blog, how I got started, etc...
I started blogging shortly after I got married (summer of 2008). I had recently quit my job as a sales rep and had lots of free time on my hands. I also really wanted to learn how to sew so I started looking for sewing/crafting blogs. Oh my, there are a ton! My husband was in grad school and so we lived far from family, so I then started blogging as a way for our families to keep up with us.
It has evolved over the years. I blog for many reasons. It's a great way to family and friends to keep up with us. I like to blog about recipes. It's also like therapy for me in ways. Sometimes I have my most "ah-ha" moments while blogging. There are times I use it as an outlet to get out my frustrations and fears I have about this crazy life.
I love to blog about life in general. Now that I have a baby, I use it as a way to document his milestones and life. It's mostly about me, my life, and just a bit of random-ness thrown in. I often think no one ever reads this silly thing, and that I'm just sending my life out into cyber-space but I also hope I can use my blog to help or inspire, which is why often I'll do a post about what God might revealing to me during a certain season in my life.
Day 3: Social media & other sites
Lately, I've been obsessed with Instagram. I could NOT wait until they launched the droid version on the app. I love it and use it all day long! I'm mrsnancyb if you want to follow me.
I also recently joined Twitter. I'll admit that I put it off for such a long time because I didn't really understand it and thought it was just ehhh, I don't know. I don't know why I waited so long because I like it so much better than Facebook. So much better and less clutter than Facebook. I'm now NancyPants_05
So about Facebook. I've had Facebook since the dawn of time it seems. Going on almost 10 years. I joined back in the day when you had to a college email address to even join. Oh I miss those days! I use Facebook to keep up with family and friends, therefore I keep my profile private. But I do have a business FB page, Honey B. Boutique.
Like many others, I'm a Pinterest junkie! I mostly use it for recipes and I've found some really great ones that you can see here.
Other sites - For online shopping, I like Zulily, Amazon, Etsy and endless.com for shoes! Free shipping & your shoes always arrive in 1-2 days!
I do have a Google+ account/profile but I'm not really sure how to use it, other than for photos. But I do looove me some Google reader. That's how I read the majority of my blogs.
