You see it at the end of every one of my posts. But it’s not just a tagline…I really mean it! As I explained to my kiddos (when they asked, “Mom, why do you have to put that at the end of EVERY post you write?”), I really do feel thankful to you each time you take a moment from your busy day to check in with me here in my little corner of the blogosphere. As every blogger knows, it’s a lot more fun to write when you know someone out there is reading.
I blog for two reasons:
1. For ME.
As a mom, I love being able to share the funny things my kids say. As a Christian, I love to corral my thoughts here and “discuss” them with you. As a (very amateur) photographer, I love posting pictures of the things that catch my eye. I blog because it’s fun for me.
2. For YOU.
Besides blogging for my own enjoyment, I also want to give something to you. Something to make you smile…or think…or be thankful. Something to help you, encourage you, or make your life a little easier. And that’s why I’d like your input.
I have a long list of things I’d like to write about in the near future. But I’m curious about what YOU would be most interested in reading. I want this blog to be fun and helpful to you! So, being the list maniac I am, I’ve made a list of all the general topics I’ve blogged about in the past, or plan to write about soon. Which are you most interested in? Which have you enjoyed the most? Which would you like to see more of? Or less of? Usually I do the writing here, but today I’m asking for YOU to jump in and help me out. Hopefully it will make Why Amy Smiles a place you want to visit again and again.
