I am writing this post in contemplation of starting a second blog...one where I actually, you know, blog, instead of just using it as an online photo album. I will keep my original blog around for that purpose. I have all of these posts running around in my head, and I’m thinking it would be a good idea to actually type them out and see if there is anything there worth posting to share with bloggy land. So, I guess this is the “dipping my toes into the bloggy waters and seeing if I want to actually jump in” post.
First, there are all of the questions one must answer...What kind of blog? It could be an Adoption Blog since our oldest daughter was adopted from China, or a Mommy Blog since I am a mommy of 3 small children, or it could be a Christian Blog since my Christianity (I hope) defines who I am, or it could be a Pastor’s Wife Blog, since I am a Pastor’s Wife. I’m guessing that this one will end up being a combination of all of those, likely with a little more tossed in for good measure.
Then there is the whole question of “Do I use our names or try to keep things anonymous?” I have tossed that idea all over the place, and have finally come to a conclusion. I think, since I already have one blog, and since my husband and I have Adoption Voyages, the whole anonymous thing probably won’t work very well for me anyway. I obviously will avoid posting last names or other personal information, but other than that, I’m not going to go the anonymous route. I will, however, most of the times, refer to the kids by their initials, which could get confusing since child #1 and child #3 both have “M” names. Thankfully, though, being the good southerners that we are, child #1 goes by a double name, so she will be “MJ,” child #2 will be “K,” and child #3 will be “M.” Are you totally confused yet?
I also needed to settle on a name for the blog, which you can obviously see. I will explain it in another post.
So, now that all of that is settled, here I go...
