I am one of those people who have resisted technology changes over the years and not even realized it. Switching from a pager to a cell phone was major. Getting rid of our VHS was heartbreaking. I didn’t want to get a facebook account for as long as I can remember because it sounded completely bizarre to me. I still don’t really understand the point of a twitter account if I’m honest! I was also pretty anti blogs for a long time because I just thought it sounded silly. Who would want to read about people they don’t even know?
I started one as an “online diary” to document our life since I seem to forget what I ate for breakfast let alone what I did a year ago. I now realize I started it in hopes that I would have something more interesting to write about fairly soon after starting. A baby. I honestly don’t think I even realized that’s why I started it in the first place because I remember thinking, “I’m not even going to tell anyone I’m doing this because they’ll think I’m silly and boring!”
But now after opening up about the trying to get pregnant I realize this has been more therapeutic than I could have ever imagined. I have felt more supported, encouraged, and loved over this topic than I had any idea I needed. Not to mention the world of blogging is beyond bigger than I had any clue about! Once again – another technology advance I was clueless about. I am amazed at how I can jump from one blog to another over a period of an hour and not realize I’ve even blinked an eye. It’s amazing to me how connected people get and even have “coffee dates” so to speak. I’m still learning what it’s all about completely but I guess that’s part of adjusting to this new “world” I’ve become a part of. Also, having a husband in his first year of residency is giving me more time than I realized to figure it all out. I’m finding all sorts of new hobbies to keep my time filled!
Here are a few blogs I’ve come across that I’ve really enjoyed!
