DiShInG iT!

I think my friend Tanya has such cute posts, and today she has participated in Serenity Now's Dishing It! party. I thought I would play along! This week is all about BLOGS.

I have been blogging since 7/08. WOW. I actually had to look back and find that date and I really had no clue I had been blogging that long! It's amazing how time flies - and even MORE amazing what happens when you have a baby and your memory goes to pOt!

I started blogging initially to have somewhere to express my thoughts - a creative outlet mind you - and at the time intended it to be geared towards my work as a Registered Dietitian. I have so many hilarious, crazy, and sometimes even slightly scary stories from being an RD and dealing with parents.

"He has caffeine headaches if he doesn't drink his sweet tea. He's been drinking it ever since he was a baby and I would put it in his bottle."

So, I thought I'd start a blog to get out my frustrations but it pretty quickly took another turn when I got pregnant. After that it turned into a MOMMY blog...and I had NO idea I would ever have a mommy blog! I enjoy reading mommy blogs, however, and let's face it...once you have a kid, there is nothing more fun to talk about ;)

My blog's title...

Sigh. ... (Revert back to previous post)...

Basically my title is me trying to say - these are my thoughts on paper people! I am not the type of person to be loud or overly outgoing, but I love to write, and I love to write in COLOR, or OUT LOUD - meaning letting people know my true thoughts and feelings ... well, you get it.
My favorite thing about blogging is that I can sit down and let go. I try to contain myself and sometimes but I really enjoy letting my thoughts flow. I also enjoy reading other's blogs, getting good home ideas, seeing their cute designs, and thinking about re-designing my own (obviously, it needs a makeover). Basically, I enjoy having this online journal that will be here for years to come, where I can look back and think wow - I remember that now! I also love getting spiritual inspiration from others. There are a few women out there that I enjoy following and they really inspire me to try to become a better person. After all - friends (whether they are close friends or mere blog acquaintances) should always give you some type of positive inspiration...right?

If I could have one famous person become an avid reader of my blog...probably Candice Olsen from HGTV's Divine Design. I just love her! In an ideal world, she would post decorating tips or even come over for dinner and while she was here, just happen to drop off some of her designs that she was discontinuing. haha! Dream on! I would love to have her sit in my living room and pick her brain regarding how to arrange my long and narrow room with a corner fireplace! She can make a shack look like a palace.

I actually can't remember any overly funny comments that I have received, but I haven't really been all that public with this blog and haven't received a whole lot of random readers. Most of my followers are just close friends that put up with my ranting and most likely just enjoy seeing baby pictures :) But I'm okay with that!

And that is my first DISHING IT!

Proverbs 27:17 NIV

YAY! I'm so glad you're partying with us! Amanda has AWESOME parties!

I totally love Candice Olsen too. I wish she'd come arrange my crazy living room with a corner fireplace after she got done with yours!!!

I never get any really funny comment either. I get some really sweet ones, but never funny. Oh well!

The baby pictures are just an adorable bonus :)

Amanda K said...

Cute baby! Someone really put tea in their baby's bottle? Yikes! I am glad I stopped by! It was nice to "meet" you.

Hey Danya! I nominated you for a sunshine award today. Come on over to my blog and pick it up when you get a chance!

Amanda @ Serenity Now said...

"Writing Out Loud." Love that idea! I could not believe the sweet tea comment (!!). Some people still just amaze me. :s Thanks so much for linking up with me at the party. I hope you're having fun "mingling." ;)

I'm here mingling at the dishing it party. Your post makes me wish I had spent more time creating a real post. Good writing.

My cousin used to put Coke in her baby's bottle. I've never understood giving them crap when they're too young to even ask for it.
