Since I was a little girl I loved to write. I used to keep a journal all growing up since 5th grade. I never wrote it for anyone to see but I also didn't write it to hide anything. It was like having a friend that didn't judge. Somewhere I could tell my thoughts without getting in trouble for it. In 2006 I discovered blogging. I saw it as my online journal for my own eyes but still knowing others could see. So I don't write to please others or to put up fronts. I write for me and it happens to be public. It was never meant to be a means of ammunition for others. But if it is used in that way, I can't control it. My blog. My writing. My pictures.
I say us mommies need not worry about being judged for showing life like it is in our own homes. Using our blogs as a ministry to show others our triumphs but not be scared to share our weaknesses. Besides, only showing a perfect side of us encourages others very little. His strength is made perfect in our weakness. Blog for you but keep in mind those you may be encouraging (or discouraging) in the process. Don't let anyone bully you or tell you what you can or cannot write about. Be YOU.
