Hello. New and Nervous!
« on: Jul 18, 2015 @ 05:51 PM »
Hi, Moms! I am new to TMB and new to blogging period. I didn't realize just how tech dumb I was until I began this adventure. I feel I've been spending more time googling how-tos than actually writing, and that's been rather frustrating! Everyone seems to really have their blogging act together around here, and your good examples have made it a healthy challenge for me to work hard at keeping up. :)

I'm a SAHM of 4, oldest has severe food allergies. Husband in the Army. Dad was in the Army so I've never lived in one place too long; there's no place I call "home". Recently moved from Hawaii to Virginia! Big changes.
I started my blog as a creative outlet for myself, because I love to write, and my Facebook statuses were beginning to get annoyingly long. ;) I am also writing a book and to my surprise have found blogging to be an awesome exercise for that.

I'm pleased to meet you, Moms of many characters, and hope to make some lasting connections!

(I don't know if it will show up or if I have to add it manually... my blog is ...told you I was tech dumb. I still don't even understand twitter!)

Welcome to the world of blogging!  ;D It can be challenging but oh so fun. I've been blogging for a while but I'm also just now starting to get deep into connections and other things that revolve around blogs. So, you are not alone in that aspect at all!

You were an army brat too, huh? My dad was in the army twice and the first time we were everywhere so I get that. Having a military family was cool but it was also strict. ??? Was that the same for you?

I hope that you have a great journey in your blogging and just know that you already have a friend. Feel free to take a look at my blog and I will do the same for you and hopefully we can make some lasting connections within them!

Good luck! :)

Hello and welcome! Blogging is a new challenge and I think even bloggers that have been at it for a while are learning new things! I have recently started a blogging tip series that posts on Fridays, feel free to check it out and if you have any questions, I will try to help. Other than that, I think we all started out Googling everything and spending more time doing that than actually writing. You will get the hang of it and this is a great community to learn from!

Also, you have a friend right here if you have any questions, just let me know, I will help the best way I can.

Hi and welcome!  I'm new here too. I also just moved from Cali to Virginia.  What part of Virginia are you in...I'm in Falls Church.  We like it.  Blogging is new for me. One day I feel proud of myself for what I've been able to do in a few weeks and then other days I feel like I have no idea what I'm doing.  I guess that is part of the process. I like your writing style. Good luck!

Hello and welcome to Top Mommy Blogs!!

I can so relate, I began blogging in October of last year.. Love, and won't deny, I spent lots and lots of time searching on google (lol).. It's all about trial and error, and I still don't have it down. I can say, I am having a blast and you'll meet some amazing bloggers who'll turn into some great friends.  Sharing ideas, tips and tricks!

Your blog looks great, you've got a good foundation!  Congrats!

01/09/2018 I'm back to blogging, took a break and now I'm back. Super excited to get things going!

Hi!  I'm new to Top Mommy Blogs  and new to blogging and new to Twitter, LOL!! It's all so new!  I feel you on the spending more time googling "how-tos." The way I look at it though, it's a learning curve, and we can only go up from here!  Just checked out your blog, and it looks like you're off to a good start!
