For the last couple of months I have been reading blogs, more specifically, Catholic mom blogs. I ‘discovered’ these blogs by accident. I was on the Catholicmom.com website which I visit every Sunday for the Gospel activities that I use for my religious education class. Anyway, there was an interesting article which led me here to Lori’s blog. From there, I found Jen at Conversion Diary which caught my attention because I am also a covert (although not from atheism). And then it just snowballed when I started reading other bloggers that link up with Jen for the ‘7 Quick Takes Friday’. Since then I have been hanging out with Grace at Camp Patton, Kelly at This Ain’t the Lyceum, and Dweeja at House Unseen, Life Unscripted to name a few. There are several other blogs that I check in on when I can. (I will post links to others in the near future) Anyway, I never knew how amazing reading blogs could be. I have found tremendous strength spiritually and emotionally through these ladies. (plus, you just can’t beat the comic relief J) I feel like I have new friends, but to really be friends, I need to be able to share my life too. So I have decided I would try this blogging business. (By the way, thanks so much Dweeja for the timely 7QTF post about why I should be blogging). So this is it, the first one and we will see how dedicated I can be with this.
Probably the biggest disclaimer I need to put out there is - I am not a writer. There are some fantastic bloggers out there who are incredible writers; I am not going to be one of them. If I can simply get some thoughts and some photos posted from time to time, I will be happy with that. And I apologize in advance for any spelling, grammar, or punctuation errors you may encounter should you choose to read my blog.
