Winging it!!

The blogging world for me has been very intimidating since I started mine in October.  I didn't know what to write and didn't have very many posts. I still don't know what to write so I usually just wing it!!  My uncle just sent me an email this morning about my blog.  He was encouraging me to keep going, let go and JUST write. He gave me some good advice.."We all have an inner being that never gets out so I would suggest you find that inner person."  It's SOOOO true.  I need to find my inner person and just go with it.  Write from the heart, write how I feel, write how I speak and basically write about me and my life.  And maybe even make some shit up sometimes....just because I can and who knows maybe it will make someone laugh and actually be funny!

 Recently I've gotten really obsessed into doing more posts and found that I really, really love reading other blogs.  I've found SO many wonderful blogs that I can totally relate to, that make me laugh out loud and that make me feel not so alone in this whole new mommyhood world.  It's so nice to know and read about other women who are experiencing the same things that I am.  It's encouraging to see how other people write and tell their stories.  It's fun to read those stories about families and kids.  Being a mom, I think, connects us on so many different levels.  I'm sure there are people I talk to that don't care about Mia eating solids for the first time or me having to pack all of her 3 month clothes away and the devastation that it brought me!!!!   This is such a perfect outlet for me to journal all of these things and get them out and receive comments from others who are going through the same situations and emotions! 
I hope that I can continue to explore my inner self and "meet" new friends and I hope that when someone reads my words they can relate to something that I've shared or even possibly laugh out loud!! (I'm hoping I'm sort of funny!!)


  1. Hi Nikki!!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and for leaving such a nice comment!!

    I struggled with the blog too in the beginning. It's like you said a little intimidating, and I'd think to myself, do people really care about this stuff? But, it's so nice to have a journal of your babies. I wish I had started mine when my oldest was a baby. It seriously is better than a baby book! Good luck with your blogging, as far as I can tell, you are very funny, and yes I did laugh out loud a few times! I will be back to read more and I'm putting you on my blog roll!! Nice to meet you Nikki!!

    Oh yeah, and your daughter is adorable!! Such a cutie!

  2. Thanks Kristi for the nice comments!! I'm totally just gonna go with the flow and more than likely be super random!!!!

  3. I think people are definitely more interested in the blogs, where people are real, and are just themselves! Your Uncle's advice is right on! I think you will have so much fun, the more you blog! It's a great hobby, and helps all of us "mommies" Stay connected! I am so glad we are bloggy friends now!!

  13. I'm a "winger" too. Sometimes I write down ideas I have because I'll forget about them before I sit down at the computer!

    I found you through Friday Follow, by the way. Hope you have a lovely weekend!
