do you blog? or is there a perticular blog that you follow? Do you find it helpful in your day to day SAHM tasks?

I love blogging! I started doing it in 2009 when my husband and I were on vacation in Romania. The best part is that I was able to get it printed with a hard cover for a very reasonable price. I started a second blog when my son was born in October. It's nice to have more than just his baby journal to track special moments, events, pictures, and videos. That one requires a password to sign in, so only close friends and family can read it. I'm not sure if I'll blog until he's 1 or until I have another baby, but I'll have to do one for the 2nd child as well.

As for following a blog, my friend moved to Winnipeg last June and loves to cook (something she's had a lot of time for in a new city), so she blogs about her eating and dining adventures. I also like to check out the Smart Canucks blog.

I've been a bit addicted to blogs lately - I love reading cooking, weight watchers and fitness related ones. There are a few I have bookmarked.

Don't think I'd ever start a blog, my life isn't all that interesting.

That's what I thought, but it's not hard when you find the right thing to write about. Mostly I started them so that other people could read what I was up to. Everyone loved my vacation blog, so it seemed like a great idea to start one for my son.

I want to, and I believe you may be giving me a push to get started.

So how do I get started? I see blogspot seems to be the most popular service.

i use blogspot.
so you basically just find a theme you like, apply it, customize it & go on your way.
blogspot seems to be the most popular in the blogosphere.
unless you want to go with a purchased domain, the its wordpad & godaddy.
