It didn't begin like this

My blog didn't start out like this.
The intention wasn't for it to turn into what it is now.
I never in a million years dreamt of getting this many followers and making this many new online friends.

Actually, my initial blog name was "So far from home".
It was intended to be the one place all my family could come to and see updates and pictures of us.

Then my blog started evolving into my outlet.  My place to be me, and try different fashions, and meet new people.  It became the one thing that I had for me.  The one thing that kids can't touch.  The one thing that I could turn to whenever I wanted.  I have gotten SO much support from my bloggy friends - and that has really gotten me through hard times.  Read this post if you're new here to get familiar with my "hard times".  It's given me a purpose.

I'm happy that it has turned in what it is now though.  It has evolved me and made me try different things.
Some people don't like it, and have expressed their opinion, but I say it's my blog and if they don't like it - don't read it!.  Simple as that.  If you don't like what it has turned into, than you have the choice not to read it.   That's the great thing about blogs, you get to pick and choose which ones you want to read and which ones you like and don't like.

I'm here to stay and the blog isn't going anywhere.  My true "followers" and "likers" will stick by me and support me and my journey.....and they're the ones that in the end will matter.

Aww, sorry to heart that. I am one of those friends and followers that are here to stay. Your blog helps me to feel like I'm not alone in mommy-hood challenges and learning how to share your heart honestly and wholeheartedly. Keep up what you are doing. I love to hear everything you post. =)

I noticed my blog button is missing. Not sure if that has something to do with my blog being screwed up the other day? My home page where my button is located was all messed up. Not sure what happened but it seems ok for now. :)

You are one of my daily reads Nicole and I'm so glad I found you! Love your blog and I'm here to stay too ;))) Have a great rest of your weekend friend!

Be nice or go home...simple as that. I guess some Mamas don't teach their kids that when they're young and they grow up to be nasty adults. This is YOUR corner of the world and we're lucky you let us in to visit. Keep doing what you're doing...I imagine most of us aren't going anywhere... Loves!

I have to say I'm glad I found you...I LOVE reading your posts. You're a real Momma, with real topics, in a real world.
And you're absolutely right, people have the choice not to read it. But I bet most people still will because you're you and you're great!

Pretty new-ish follower, but I already think (know!) you're awesome!
Don't ever stop being you! :)

Your blog is great and I read every post. Don't worry about the ones who don't like every one, it's like you said if they don't like they don't need to read it.
