What inspired you to start blogging?
My desire to rant about how hard it is to blend our family was my initial inspiration. I needed an outlet. I felt totally alone in being a stepmom, and in my immediate circle of friends nobody had ever done ANYTHING like what we were attempting to do. Now, I have found that there is a whole community of women just like me, and through my writing I've learned that in actuality, NOBODY has ever done anything like what anyone else is doing. We are all pioneers, breaking new ground. And, in the midst of it all, I have this amazing little blog that chronicles our growth, and reminds me to stay sane.
