So I started this blog for my boys. I still write it for my boys. I also write it for myself. It is a way for me to reflect on my day, find those moments that are meaningful or memorable, and it is a creative outlet. I also LOVE reading blogs. They inspire me to try and cook better, be a better mom, and to look at life with a more positive outlook. What is blogging? Here is one definition. The key word today that stands out to me is interactive. It states, "The ability for readers to leave comments in an interactive format is an important part of many blogs." I will admit that I do not leave a ton of comments on many of the blogs I read but I am trying really hard to comment more often. I am finding that these people, who I don't even know, will respond and email me after I comment. It is so cool. I know I write mostly as a journal about our day, which doesn't invite too much interactive energy...but I would like my blog to be more interactive. Whether I know you or don't know you - whether you read my blog because it is linked on a friends blog or whatever....take a chance and comment. It does not say compliment -You do not have to agree. It says comment...so just tell me something about your day, give your opinion, a thought, a response, ...etc. Just say hi! I will try and write more interactively. Those friends who have become followers, email me, or leave a comment - you make my day. You motivate me to write more. Thank you!
So to encourage some interactive-ness....leave a comment telling me what you are thankful for today and I will have Charley pick a random number and the person who commented first, second, third, tenth... etc....will win a little fall treat. Comments for this give away will close tomorrow evening at 9pm! Your fall treat will arrive via snail mail or it will be personally handed to you by me or Charley :) Good luck!
Oh and if you are a follower you get your name in the drawing twice!
