Well, I guess I haven’t been writing regularly, huh? In my defense, I have been rather busy this past year. I gave birth to our second child at the end of April of this year. Our oldest is almost exactly 2 yrs 1 month older than her little brother. So our hands have been totally full!

It’s kinda interesting writing a blog. I’m really struggling with a few things here.

One, I can feel right now that I’m searching for my voice. It seems like at present, I really haven’t found my style, my voice, my identity as a writer yet. I’m hoping as time goes on and I (hopefully) write more, that this style becomes more in focus. I think that it’ll happen gradually and one day I’ll realize — boy! I’m a writer!

Another, is how much to reveal of myself to the blogosphere. I’ve always been a very private person, never sharing much of my feelings. However, there’s a new level of sharing to be contemplated when it comes to cyberspace. Do I want personal details to be available to people I don’t know? Such as my name, my kids’ names, where I live, what I do. It’s a scary thing to put yourself out there like that. On the other hand, how can I keep this blog interesting or vibrant without sharing something of myself and my family?

Being a parent, one of my favorite blogs is dooce.com. She is such an incredibly talented writer who has a real knack for drawing people in with her writing. However, not much is held private about her life, her husband or her daughter. I’m not sure I can be as brave as she is. I’m not sure I want to be.

Well, we’ll see what the future brings. Decisions like these are probably too early for me to make. Afterall, I’m only on post #2….

BTW, I have to change this template. It’s in Chicago Bear colors and I HATE da bears….
