I'm still a blogging newbie, so I'm obviously not going to BlogHer. Actually, I just recently figured out what it was in the first place. And now that I know, I'm oh so very jealous of all of those wonderful bloggers who get to go and meet all the other wonderful bloggers *gasp* in real life! I can't even fathom it.
So here I sit, behind my computer screen still, and I'm psyched to be participating in the No-Go BlogHer Blog Hop! So here are my answers to the questions:
When did you start blogging?
I believe I started Haute Single Mama in October of 2009. I had a couple of blogs before that that I didn't really keep up on, and they fizzled out. This one was the lucky one that stuck, though!
Why did you start blogging?
Definitely as an outlet for myself. I haven't written in an actual diary since I was 14 (long story) and I knew it would really help me to sort out everything I have been through to write about it. Plus, @KatiesPickles kept bugging me to start one.
What is one thing you are going to do this week that is WAY cooler than going to BlogHer?
I already did something awesome this week that was WAY cooler than BlogHer - I celebrated E's first birthday! I don't have the pics uploaded yet, but I will soon. I promise.
Share a post that you think says a lot about you or is your favorite. (share the link in YOUR post so we all can see)
This is lame, because this was my last post before this one, but I love the post where I put my year of exclusively pumping breast milk into quantifiable terms. I think it says a lot about me, just because I am so totally impressed with myself for actually making it to a year. There were so many days that I didn't think that I would, and my mind is still basically blown that I did. Seriously, this is just one of the many, many things that I'm doing that if you had asked me a year ago, I would have said "I could never do that!" As difficult as the past couple of years have been, I am so much stronger for it. And pumping is a prime example of that.
