Hello and welcome to Top Mommy Blogs!!
Oh gosh, I know what you're talking about! I began blogging last October and I didn't really announce it, because of the fear of judgement. I told a few close friends and family, but it was weird. Once I began posting though I linked it to share on facebook. Then I'd get questions, I feel more comfortable now, but in the beginning I was a bit shy.
So, welcome to the world of blogging. This is a great community, you can gain lots of great information here.
Have a great week!
