Spin Cycle: Where it all began

This weeks spin cycle is about the birth of my blog. Well not mine specifically, but how each person's blog got started. Mine isn't too interesting but the outcome has been pretty amazing for me. It all started one Thanksgiving break about a year and a half ago. My friend was visiting from Dallas and she had sent me her blog link a while before and I had been reading it. I told her I would like to comment but I didn't have a google username and it wouldn't let me. She told me I should start a blog. So I did. There you have it ladies and gentleman. A true story of peer pressure! But since then I have written almost 200 posts and I have gained many people who read my blog and have gained many more whose blogs I read. I feel connected to many of them because I have found people in similar situations that I find myself. It is amazing (and reassuring) to know that there is someone halfway across the country trying to figure out what to do with their 3 year old the same way I am! It is also nice to just be able to get my feelings out of my system and not have to worry about the repercussions of talking to my people in the real world. There are definitely still things that I don't discuss on my blog because some of the people that read it actually know me and I don't want to completely disturb them with my crazy thoughts but most of them I can type out and I can feel the stress leaving through my fingers. So thanks bloggy world for letting me do that!

I got started by writing letters to Sprite in a notebook John gave me when she was 7 months old. I found it was easier to be me when writing about her in the third person instead of addressing her directly and my blog was born! (I was also reading a few blogs and thought it looked easy. It was definitely harder than I thought, but so worth it!)Great Spin! You're linked!

Peer pressure can sometimes be good for you! LOL!

This is a case where peer pressure was a good thing! ;)

I like how you can use blogging as a stress release. Glad to see that you have kept it up and are reaching a milestone in the blogging community.
