Blog identity...

What is the A, B and Baby C blog identity? I probably should have thought about that before I started the blog. But at that time... it was really about... ME. My, my husband, our growing baby, and our life. But now the blog has changed to updates on Andrew (which are GREAT in their own right)... but I feel like I've lost my outlet. I have so much going on in my mind right now... about the "same, but different ME," about returning to work, about being a mom, about being a wife, about losing the baby weight and living a healthy life. Hummmm... maybe I need to start a second blog. (Do I REALLY have THAT much time on my hands!?!)

I understand. But I urge you to keep this about you and your experience with Andrew. As a Mom. As a working Mom, as a wife, as Alison.

I know it's been helpful for me to get all the thoughts out as they're occuring, and seeing what was going on with Jenna at the same time. It makes key points much more obvious to me to look back and see that when I wasn't taking good care of myself, my posts about her were more negative up until that point, once I started caring for me, and for her, and for my DH, the entire blog took on a more positive spin.

But, if you do pick up another blog... let us know!

Everyone I know goes through this blogging crisis. But I'd encourage you to keep it from your point of view. Otherwise when Andrew has a sibling you'll go through the same identity crisis. I had to switch back to me when Brooke was born. And its nice for you to have an outlet

I agree with both of the above comments. I also went through the blogging crisis. There was a long period where all of my blog were just photos. I regret not doing more writing in Grey's early days.

What I found helped me with my blog is using the labels feature. Being able to write what I want to write and then add it to it's own little catagory. It helps me feel like my blog is somewhat organized, even if my thoughts veer off in a totally non-kiddo, non-family direction at times.
