I am not a writer!
I am sure those of you new and old to this blog are nodding their heads because you know I am not. The posts I write can have many grammar errors, lacking style, which persuades no one. I can get so self conscience about this truth that writing any post is equivalent to the dentist chair.
As a homeschooling mom I am relearning a lot about the English language and writing structure, but instead of that making me a better writer I am more aware of my inability to write well. I now know what I don’t know. If that makes sense, and some days its paralyzing.
I guess what it boils down to is that as a blogger I do have an audience but I can’t be held captive by what you think. I will apologize now for botching the writing process, and maybe as I continue to teach my own children how to write, you, my reader, will begin to notice a change.
I don’t like using this platform to sell you just anything.
There are products that I promote on this page because I use them regularly and like sharing a great restaurant you ate at last night I am sharing with you. I do not want to promote or sell anything that I have not found to be amazing. I love, love, love, My Well Planned Day and I will continue to review their products. I am crazy about Shakeology and Beachbody. There is not another meal replacement that I have tried that compares to Shakeology, and because I love to workout in the privacy of my own home Beachbody videos are supreme.
So please know that when I share a product it is a friend sharing with you something fantastic she’s discovered.
I am not a photographer!
I took a photography class in design school at college, but that only means I know I am not a photographer. I love blog posts with beautiful pictures and I often wonder how they managed to get such a perfect picture. Life does not happen when you’re asleep so I’m sure what looks effortless took more time than not. If I have pictures on my posts its because the Instagram effect worked. I do not own a camera so all my pictures are taken with my phone and modified in an app. How’s that for classy blogging?
I don’t whittle, stitch, or meal plan!
I am amazed at what women can do and then post about it. From your decoupage frames, hand made skirts and monthly meal plans is amazing. I know I am not alone with feelings of inadequacy after a binge on Pinterest. Well let me set your mind at ease. I am not one of those women. My hobby list is very short and rarely does it produce anything I would “pin.”
Who has time for that anyway? I clean, make meals, clean up after the meals, wash clothes, make beds (sometimes), work, keep my kids safe, and during school season I homeschool from 9-3pm. Where does one fit in DIY projects? I am not complaining, at least not at this moment. I am thankful for what God has given me and I truthfully enjoy social media and seeing the creativity.
I am a blogger!
I have a blog on which I write whatever is on my mind. Thank you for reading.
