When I first set out to create my website 4 years ago today, I didn’t want a blog. I didn’t want to have to scroll through recipes to find what I wanted. I wanted a different organization system, and a blog wasn’t it.
If you weren’t aware that my website isn’t a blog, well, now you know. It isn’t.
It also doesn’t have a simple, FREE (and that’s important) blog option for me. So, here I am–starting a blog.
1. My husband pointed out that I was using Facebook like a blog. This is true.
2. Facebook isn’t showing everything to everyone anymore. In addition, last week, as I was just finished typing my list of frugal things I had accomplished for the week (and the list was long), and was ready to hit enter, it dumped me out and told me I wasn’t logged in. I lost everything I had just typed. I was tired and wanted to go to bed–so I did. I didn’t post the list. This isn’t the first time that’s happened. It’s happened over 20 times this week alone.
3. There are things that I want to say that belong on a blog–and not on the website. I’d like to say them.
4. I get emails all the time asking me if I have a subscribe option or an RSS feed, and I can only do that with a blog. You want to know when there’s something new on the site. I used Facebook for that purpose–but now I can offer those options–as soon as I figure them out! (If someone wants to guide me to a tutorial on how to set up an RSS feed on Blogger, that would be awesome, because I haven’t found it yet.) I will be posting on here when there is something new on the site, so you can click on over to check it out.
I don’t know how often I can post, though,
I have 7 children, ages 10 to 2 months, who need me–constantly.
And that’s pretty important.
