Blog Bash 2010

Blog Bash

I stopped for a moment and thought about "what would I be doing if I
wasn't blogging or if I never knew this world exisited?"
It's hard to really wrap my mind around that.

How it all started

My cousin had a blog
and she invited me several times to come read her blog.
I stopped in a few times and thought oh, that's cute.
Then I broke down in October 2008 and created My Crazy Kind of Wonderful.
I didn't even think very long about the name for it. When you've got
two kids under the age of 5
and you're working full time and trying to be a full time mommy
well that's just a crazy, wonderful part of life.
It just popped in my head. I'm a go with your gut kind of girl and
when my gut tells me something
then I know it's a good thing.
I started blogging to show off photos of my children and talk about what was
going on in our lives.
I really got active in my blogging this year.
The economy had gotten slow and work was pretty boring during the
mornings. I started blog surfing and found some great blogs to read.
I participated in a couple weekly carnivals and it opened my creative side back up.
I found myself writing more posts, reading more blogs from fellow bloggers
and it started coming full circle.
I am blogging for me.
because I love to write and I'm not getting paid
for it and who cares if what I say isn't right but I like it.
And it's ALL MINE.
It's a wonderful feeling.
The biggest reward I get from blogging is the support and friendship from
fellow blog friends. People that I feel I know so well without really
knowing them in real life are some of my best
friends. They don't judge me or critisize me.
We know each others strengths and weaknesses
and we're not afraid to spill out how we feel.
I love the honesty, compassion and encouragement.

My name is Tiffany, I am a mother to two, wife to one
and this is my blog.
I love taking photographs of my silly kids, laughing at my nutty husband
and cuddling with my houseful of animals.
I find joy in making my kids happy and cooking meals from
scratch. I am always on the look out for a bargain, a new recipe
and jeans that make me look skinny.
I am embracing my life now as a stay at home mom in my 30's
and revamping the look of Betty Crocker.
Pull up a comfy chair or car seat or whatever you have handy and
relax and stay awhile.

Why don't you join me?
