Why I have a blog

I am a brand new blogger, effective today. This is meant to be my personal blog where I suspect I will write posts mainly about being a mom, daily experiences, perhaps something related to work and other random stuff that catches my attention. There will not be a theme that I strive to write content about. I am not a literary genius – I admit that right here and now. So why am I doing this?
I am doing this as my method of personal growth. I’m a mom, I’ve branded myself as such and I wear my mom badge with honor and pride. But I have realized that for the past six plus years my focus has been on my kids/husband and work. I’ve been buried under the day-to-day aspects of raising two small children while working full-time. I finally stuck my head up and realized that I feel that I have forgotten or lost my voice, my personal thoughts and opinions. I am not looking to set the world on fire with radical thoughts, be controversial, rant and rave on this or that, or even be overly though provoking. I am simply looking for a hobby that I enjoy. (nope, it’s not a mid-life crisis, not that I am aware of anyway).
Writing appeals to me. It has always been easier for me to communicate via written word than face-to-face. And the fact is that I am very shy, it takes me time to be comfortable in new settings so going out and joining a new group for a socializing doesn’t appeal to me. If someone who knows me reads this they may disagree with that statement. Truthfully, I like people, I like having a good time – with people I know and have grown comfortable with. If you put me in a room where I don’t know anyone, I will find the nearest corner, pull out my phone and pretend to be occupied until I have wasted enough time and can make a graceful exit. Plus I want a hobby that I can do on my own time, when I want.
I guess I am channeling my inner Carrie Bradshaw to some degree albeit in a slightly different format. Thanks you for reading. I appreciate comments and feedback.
