Question of the week: What got you started as a blogger? Everyone has a story/reason, what's yours?
Once upon a time AOL message boards were my thing. I had several I read regularly and to which I posted frequently. As that started to die, I became aware of blogs and several on-line friends started them. I decided to try it too. You'll note in my archives that I've been blogging since 2005 but did not start blogging frequently until 2008 when I became a book blogger. I guess I kind of envisioned this as a mommy blog at first (though I had never heard the term) but the more I thought about writing about my kids, who were not babies at the time, the more I was concerned about someone they knew stumbling on this blog.
I like to write and I like to spout off my opinion and at first I planned to do more of that than I do but while lately I have written about welcoming families to a parish, , attracting young families to a parish, public schools, Catholic schools, college loans, and healthcare, I couldn't come up with enough to say regularly to make me a regular blogger.
I've always liked to read and one day I surfed onto a book blog and it didn't take long for me to make that my niche.
