Why I Blog

Can you believe I started blogging a year and half ago? When I first started I was a bit skeptical that I’d be able to keep it up and tried a bunch of different ideas.  I finally decided to blog about being a frum working mom and since I didn’t come across many other blogs in that genre I figured I’d try it out. Whether or not I had any followers didn’t really matter. I was just blogging for fun and knew that at the very least my family was reading it- even if it was out of obligation 😉

 

I don’t think I ever really shared the reasons for my blog, so here goes (reasons are shared in jest and are not meant to be taken too seriously!):
  1. Everyone else I knew had a blog, so I wanted one too.
  2. It’s cheaper than therapy. When I’m having a bad day and need to vent, I just blog about it. No one wanted to hear my complaints in real life, so it’s basically the same venting with a better outcome, since some of my readers commiserate with me.
  3. A place to store some of my most-used recipes.  Check them out here!
  4. It reminds me of my past accomplishments. When things get tough, I read back at some of the posts on how I coped in hectic situations and I’m proud of myself for it.
  5. Maybe I can actually help someone. It always helps to know you’re not alone; whatever your situation is.

So, my question to you is… why do you read this blog?

Until next time,
Shaindy

    • Thanks! I also found that it’s hard to relate to other blogs- sometimes our lifestyles are just way too different!
