I want to welcome everyone to my new blog. I have wanted to start a new blog for several months now, but wasn’t sure which direction I should take. In the past, I have had two blogs. One was a personal blog where I talked about my life. I mainly focused on writing about day trips, my latest gadgets, opinions on animal rites issues and the antics of my cats. Then I created an early childhood blog where I posted project ideas, school assignments and things I was working on in the various classrooms I’ve worked in. As my job changed over time, I lost interest in the blog and there were no creative ideas flowing. I wondered whether I should start posting there again, but after some issues with finding a file hosting solution, I decided to leave it as is and start fresh.
I brainstormed for a while, created a blog and even wrote my first post, but I found that I was at a loss for ideas. The problem was the topics I wanted to include in that blog seemed too narrow and I wanted to put all my passions into one blog. After some thought, I decided that being a mom was what I am most passionate about so that was where I wanted to start. I could share my knowledge and ideas about early childhood education by writing about the activities my daughter and I do together. Also in this format, I can branch out and write about a delicious recipe I’ve tried, a great book I’ve read, a neat place I’ve visited or share more personal things I have discovered about myself through personal development.
I have a variety of interests and am in a place of transition right now. Both personally and professionally. This blog will be a creative outlet for me, but I also want to reach out to others. If anything I share makes one person’s day brighter or helps them in any way, then my blog has served it’s purpose. I look forward to sharing our adventures and making new connections along the way. Thank you for reading and following the journey of my flourishing rose.
