I can’t believe that it will soon be a year since this blog came to life. A year of daily posting and connecting with inspiring people all over this planet. I know it’s early, as it’s not a proper anniversary just yet. But I figured I might celebrate already today. Celebrate in the form of reflecting on what this blog is all about and what it was intended to be about. Maybe even thinking about how I would introduce me today, almost a year after I’ve introduced myself to my readers for the first time.
When I started with A Momma’s View all I wanted is getting back into writing, check if I could stick to a daily writing or posting routine over a long period. I had no clear idea about what I would write about. Well, I kind of did but I could not just put it in one word. There was no this will be a lifestyle blog. Or this will be a mommy blog. No this will be an expat blog or a SAHM blog. I couldn’t claim that this will be your typical homeschooling blog either. And yet it’s all of it, just slightly different. There was not intention on posting quotes or funny facts. All I wanted was to write about what goes through my mind. Things that make me happy, things that bother me, things that make me angry. I was hoping to inspire people, instead I got inspired by other bloggers.
I guess I cannot really change who I am. I’m still a mom, a wife, a woman approaching her mid 40’s. I love my children to bits and find my peace in nature. I don’t like judgmental people and yet I do judge from time to time too.
I look back on 11 months of blogging and it puts a smile on my face. It was not always easy. Sometimes the inspiration seemed lost and my head felt empty but then I headed out and read other bloggers’ posts and there it was. The inspiration was back, there were ideas in my head, things I wanted to write about. Feelings that had to be put out there.
Will I continue like this? I sure hope so. I grew over the last year. I feel confident writing and expressing myself and it’s all because of the feedback I got from all of you out there. The blogging community treated me very well and I’m happy to be a part of it. Here’s to another (at least) 11 months of blogging, sharing our thoughts and inspiring and be inspired.
To celebrate in style I figured I would invite you all to party with me!
