My Purpose for Blogging?

I was staring at the blank sheet of Write 2 app, trying to think of what post to do next. I know I have a couple of past family events lined up that I wanted to post but I didn't have the time yet to browse through the photos and pick which to use. I just felt like writing something short, that didn't require a lot of photos to watermark and arrange. Like an inspiring, in depth thought that I could share across the world wide web.

20 minutes passed by. Nada. Why am I not surprised? I'm not a very opinionated person, really. If there's anything on my mind, I tend to keep it to myself until I am 100% sure I knew what I was talking about (which is not very often hehe). I so envy other mommy bloggers who are very passionate about something. Like breastfeeding or cloth diaper advocates and want to inspire more people and make a difference through blogging. That's what I want to be in the future. But at the rate I'm going, I don't think that will happen soon.

So I gave up and raised both hands. Forget it. Will post some other time. Then I wondered if there were any new posts from any of my favorite bloggers. So I opened my Blog Lovin' app. There were some new posts, one of which was from one of my favorite mommy bloggers, Bebengisms, announcing some sort of event for bloggers.

Intrigued, I continued on to Dainty Mom's post for more details on this forum

Upon reading what the forum was all about, I immediately wanted to join. I feel this event will help shed some light as to where I want to take my humble little blog, and why I want to pursue it in the first place. Because honestly at this point I still don't have any concrete direction. And that's what I hope to learn with these mommy blogger experts!

So off the bat, I followed the instructions and crossed my fingers that I could be one of the lucky 35 to make the cut. After 2 days, I received a welcome email from Martine informing me that I had made the cut! Yahooooo! Thanks to Martine, Toni, Jayme, and Michelle for increasing the number of your guests from 35 to now 45, and more importantly, for coming up with this event!

I am so looking forward to April 20! Originally, I just wanted to post my experiences as a first time mom, but hopefully I can do more and hopefully inspire other mommy readers somehow. I don't know yet how, but that's the dream! :-)
