Blog Birthday


Today is my 1st blog birthday! One year since my very first blog post. SuburbanDaddy started as an experiment, mainly as a way to share pictures and happenings in my kids lives with family who live across the country. I committed to sticking with it for a year to see how it goes. Here’s what I learned.

Blogging Is EASY– All you have to do is write about what happens to you every day. Like Seinfeld. Went to the store to buy new shoes? There’s a blog entry. Go on vacation with the family? Another entry.

Blogging Is HARD – Finding time to sit at the computer and write something is easier said than done sometimes. Then, even if I have a few minutes of quiet, do I really want to expend mental energy writing or would I rather watch some mindless television. That’s why I often go days or a week without writing. It isn’t from a lack of ideas. Just time and energy.

Blogging Is Fun – When I’m in the middle of a daddy episode, at my wits end, tantrums all around me, or in a major battle of wills, I actually start thinking This will make a great blog topic. And it makes the daddy episode easier. Fun even. I find I take pictures with my cell phone to write about it later. Kids out of control in McDonalds playland? Not to worry. Just take a picture (I’ll write about that one soon).

If You Write It They Will Come – When I first started, I had no idea people, complete strangers, would read my blog. People from all over the world. And write comments! Here are some of my blog buddies.
