Today in celebration of Tara Frey's book, Blogging For Bliss, one of the blogs I admire most Artsty Mama, http://www.artsymama.com/ is hosting a blog party. We are posting why we blog, how we came to blog, or why we dare to blog.
Although I am fairly new to the blogosphere if you will, I find it to be so rewarding. It helps me to see clearly, perhaps sort out my thoughts. I'm so often times a speak before I think kind of girl, so blogging helps me to sort through my brain clutter a bit. I started blogging shortly after my 2 year old son's diagnosis with Autism. I thought my blog would soon be renamed the "Autism Times", however, it was quite the opposite. In a life that seemed to be all consumed with Autism and diets and therapies, my posts didn't reflect that. In fact I don't often times post about Autism, not that I don't have anything to report on the matter, but my posts reflect what I feel inspired about at that moment. That was a wonderful discovery! I had found a way to see outside of the bubble I had been living in. To see that I was LIVING. I found myself and my voice in my posting, and I kinda like me.
My family and I are facing a lot of trials right now, and perhaps this should be the time when I blog the most; to find clarity. There will be so many changes to come, and I'm okay with that, maybe even a little excited.
Blogging IS bliss, release, truth (good or bad), and perspective. Thanks to all of you who blog and who read my blog.
