Confession - I have always secretly wanted to be a blogger. So, here goes...

I haven't had much success with journaling in an actual notebook/journal. I am not a scrapbooker, although I would like to be. Perfectionism just seems to get in the way with that. I have always enjoyed writing, and I love reading blogs. The blogs I have been reading have inspired me to chronicle the daily life of my family in order to look back and remember. I actually started a blog this same week 2 years ago, and it had one post. Maybe this attempt will be more successful! I've been putting off starting again because it just takes me forever to make decision about design, layout, titles, etc. (The whole perfectionism thing kicking seems so much less "permanent" online than on a scrapbook page so it's not quite as stressful).  It causes me a bit of anxiety to actually post something because I think it's not quite "good enough." I'm trying to get over that and remind myself that I'm not doing this for anyone out there who may happen to actually read this, but that I'm doing this for myself and my family.  I want my little man (and any future children, of course!) to be able to read about life growing up. I want him to have a record of our favorite things to do at different ages and stages. Because he is 5 months old tomorrow (eek!), I may do some back-tracking in order to record favorite memories we have already shared as well as writing about the present, so please bear with me as I get started!
