I have a confession to make. I’m an introvert. Merriam Webster defines an introverted individual as : a shy person : a quiet person who does not find it easy to talk to other people. Yep, that’s me. So I’m wondering and I’m sure you are too, why would I ever start a blog? I am blogging for two reasons.
The first is that I want to document my life and I’m hoping that doing so publicly will help me come out of my shell. I have stories, thoughts and ideas in my head, but have difficulty sharing my personality via social media, mostly posting pictures with dates as my captions. I am also extremely reserved when talking to friends and family, so this venue will give them a chance to see a little bit more of who I am.
The second reason for creating a blog, is that I desire to make it a challenge that I can work towards everyday. I’m a stay-at-home-wife and doggie Mom so I have some extra time to fill when I’m not cooking, cleaning, budgeting, meal planning, grocery shopping etc. I figure that since I enjoy writing, this will be a good fit for me.
This blog will be about my lifestyle, living in rural Colorado with my husband and two dogs in an RV. It will include stories about how we got here as well as how in the world we live like this. I’m going to share tips, tricks and recipes that I’ve learned along the way as well as some I’ve come up with on my own. There will be a little photography as well because taking pictures is one of my favorite hobbies.
Whether anyone reads my blog, or even enjoys reading it is important to me, but I can’t control what other people feel or do with their time. I can control when and how I share a story, picture, recipe or a piece of myself with the world. I know that doing so will give me a small victory in conquering my shyness. I’m far from perfect, my journey getting here is bumpy and confusing, but my hope is that you find something interesting or inspiring here. Thank you for reading this!
