Wow, I just renewed my Go Mama O. domain today for another year, making it 4 years of blogging!
I am not an exceptional or wildly popular blogger by any means. I know there are many things I SHOULD do (writing more is one of them), but many of these things are in a mental list of “how to be a better blogger.” I’ve even changed my Twitter bio to “occasional blogger.”
But still, this Mama O. goes on.
I have seen bloggers in my reader or blogging community come and go, and my little site is still here.
I have found so much enjoyment from meeting fellow bloggers in my Fly on the Wall challenge group. These posts have kept my blog going and have become not only a fun outlet for me to record what my kids say, but also a wonderful way to connect with some other awesome bloggers! I’m so glad to have come across and get to know you all through your blogs. A special shout out goes to Karen at Baking in a Tornado, the mastermind behind this and other challenges.
And wow, my kids have grown so much in four years!
Hmm…remember when they would nap?! I see a correlation between nap time and number of blog posts published on Go Mama O. Now I squeeze in a post when they are occupied with a show!
In the past four years, a lot has happened, I’ve worked full time as a SAHM, part-time as a marketing manager; we ventured to Arizona as a family, celebrated our 10 year anniversary, did a LOT of spring cleaning, and moved to a new house this year, enjoyed camping & many adventures with our kids. Soon little brother will be off at 4 year old kindergarten, and I may be job hunting.
It has been a treat to look back on my blog and read old posts, which brings me back to the reason why I still blog – for me. It’s my own little smidgen of the Internet, where I take some time to reflect and create posts pertaining to what’s going on in my world. The format is perfect – more than just a status update or a Tweet to share what’s on my mind.
Thank you for following and reading!
