Starting a blog is no easy task. Some things are easy – what color do I want it to be? Do I want to write about recipes and such? You get the picture, right? Then there is the not so easy things – who am I writing for? Why am I writing? Will I purpose to not let stats matter?
And, as I sit down once again to ponder these questions, I am wrestling with the answers. I’m writing to you and to myself. I’m writing to women, specifically the woman who needs encouragement, who needs community. I’ll write about perfectionism, loneliness, and the need to connect. (And coffee, there will definitely be talk about coffee). These things will be written about because they are areas in which I’ve struggled. It’s taken me a really long time to realize that community is necessary, and even then it is no less scary.
These words I’m pouring out, this giving of myself is to build you up. It is a love offering of sorts. These words are to build up the first time mom who doesn’t have any family to help out, the SAHM who is in the thick of it, the career woman who needs connections – life giving connections; and for the working mom who has 2 full-time jobs. It’s for all of us who need community.
