i forgot that yesterday was the mark of my blogging start. (i hate the term blogiversary, don’t ask me why.)
i started blogging as a means of community. i found blogs when i started sewing again & discovered a world of crafting i never knew existed. i created an online persona to talk with those on the other ends of the wires. i ended up writing as well, beginning with nablopomo 2007. i kept clicking and clicking and clicking and clicking and fell down the rabbit hole of the many great and varied blogs from design, to parenting, to sewing, to writing & more.
i guess the best part of all of this is that in the last 2 years i’ve made friends. some people still don’t get how i can be friends with people i’ve never met, but it works. i stay home with my kids & i have many people to call on to ask for advice, become inspired by, support & cry with.
i blog to make connections. simple as that. and my connections are varied. i read crafty blogs, sewing blogs, mommy blogs, daddy blogs, funny blogs, sad blogs, and even a-couple-of-people-i-already-knew blogs.
i hope to put flesh to the faces i see, someday. until then, i’ll just stick it out here at mommymae, but you can call me jenny.
my name is jenny, and i like you.
