birth of a blog

Well, here I am, doing something I’d never thought I’d do.

When I first found out that Greg had a blog, I thought it was the weirdest thing. Why would anyone want to post what basically amounts to a personal journal on the web? It made me feel really uncomfortable at first, but over the years I’ve gotten used to it. Well, more than used to it.

I started reading Greg’s blog more, then I started reading friends’ blogs, then I started commenting on them, and before I knew it I was addicted to blog reading. Then I got pregnant and took the big step — a blog for Sprout. But it was to be private, and Sprout-related content only. So still a journal, but more a journal about him, not me.

But over the past year I have found myself quite frequently thinking “If I had a blog, I’d write a post about this…”

So, here I am. And here we are, a family with three blogs. Perhaps Yoshi and Aphro each need one as well.

I haven’t quite figured out the division of content between Sprout’s blog and this one — obviously stories about Sprout will be on Sprout’s blog, but I haven’t decided where I’ll put content about motherhood. Maybe I’ll just see how it evolves.
