OUR FIRST POST – PART DEUX
YAY! It is finally here! This is the day where we get to start sharing our little corner of the world with all of you. Oh, I almost forgot to introduce myself! I am Momma C; the jack of all trades for our online and social media content. Follow us on this introduction into how we live and the environment in which we raise our kids. Therefore, all of us here will be sharing with a level of openness and honesty that requires certain constraints.
I have a bit of a confession first... This is not our actual first post! This is due to us having our website hacked and losing all of our initial work that went into setting up our blog. Arrrgh... So, welcome to our part deux.
This idea of starting a family blog has been given much thought & all the pros & cons that go along with it. Our main reason for not starting a blog was for privacy reasons primarily. One of our main thoughts was how can we be open and honest, but still maintain a sense of privacy and security for our children. Then voila, we came up with the perfect solution while editing family photos. While editing I noticed 90% of the photos were of our children. Only a few of them had Poppa B in them while they weren't complete photos of him. Of course, none of them were of me since I am the person behind the camera. As a result, it gave me the genius idea to only share photos of the kids and bits and pieces of the adults of the family.
CAN YOU FEEL THE EXCITEMENT IN THE AIR?
The thinking is that it will allow our children to fade into anonymity once they enter adulthood. Furthermore giving them the choice of whether they want to associate it with their childhood once they are adults.
I have been a consumer of blogs in all forms for lots of years. Many of these blogs have been about fashion, family’s, nature, physical activities, travel, and many others. So, I have a pretty strong idea of what I did and did not like. I have tried to bring that into the format of our blog and social media content. Hopefully it is in a format that is fairly easy to navigate; so, if you have any tips or ideas that would make it easier for you to navigate please feel free to share it with us!
