Blog to the world; Blog for you and me

Lainy’s Musings

Blogging is my way to CONNECT with people. Being a hands-on Stay At Home mom, I have very limited time for social activities. I seldom go out and meet friends. Not to mention that most of my closest friends are out of the country already. When we moved here to our own place in Sta Rosa Laguna 4 years ago, I was happy and sad at the same time. Happy to have our own place finally but sad that I can’t meet up with my old friends since I don’t drive and it is quite a distance from Manila. But when we got our DSL connection here at home, I began to browse at blogsites. I was interested to read entries from different people and different cultures. Though I am an introvert, I am really interested to meet people. I was particularly interested in We Are Family. From her site, I found more mommy bloggers who I was able to connect with.

September 2008, I decided to start my own blogsite. I wasn’t sure how it would turn out. I just wanted to SHARE. Share about my journey as a mom thus, the birth of The Mommy Journey. the mommy journey

Since then I have met some many blogger friends. Some of them have been my source of inspiration and encouragement. Though I havent met them personally, it feels like I’m at home with them.

After 6 months of blogging, I have started a weekly photo meme. It is known as Mommy Moments. I know that as moms, we all have our moments, whether pleasant or not, they are precious to us. Since I wanted to know how other mommies do their roles as moms and I know that we want to share our kids precious moments, Mommy Moments was born. It began on January of this year and I am so blessed to have around 30 moms participate each week.

So, what does blogging mean to me? It CONNECTS, SHARES and INSPIRES me. It is a privilege to able to blog to the world. When I read that I can Blog and Win at Lainy’s Blogoversary Celebration , I just wanted to share my story more than anything.
