This morning I was briefly browsing some of my favorite blogs and really loved this one from Joanna from Cup of Jo where she asked her readers to introduce themselves.
This topic piqued my interested because, similarly, I’ve become much more interested recently in learning more about you – the real person (imagine that?!) on the other end of the computer screen reading my words. The personal, loving, and deeply caring emails, comments, etc. that I’ve received regarding our family and Hadley specifically from people I’ve never met (and many that have never even commented on my blog or social media before) moved me to crocodile tears on several occasions. (One email even made my mom a little weepy!)
I feel much more connected to my readers now than I ever have in the 2.5 years that I started consistently blogging. This place used to just be full of my family and closest friends, but my Google Analytics is telling me that you’re coming from all 50 states and 87 countries just in the last 30 days. B A N A N A S.
So I’d love for you to take a quick sec to say hello in the comments! What’s your name? Where are you from? What’s your family like? Do you have a job? How did you find my site? What else would you like to share?
I’ll go first!
My name is Erica DeSpain and though we live in Kansas due to my husband’s job in the military, we both call Alabama our home sweet home. If you’re familiar with Alabama, I’m from the Huntsville area and my husband grew up in Birmingham. The two lights of our lives are our daughters Hadley and Sadie. Hadley will be three in November and Sadie was just born this past April. I worked a few education/public speaking jobs before having our babies, but now I feel very fortunate to stay home with our girls every day and make a part-time income from this part-time love affair I have with blogging.
Your turn! Have a beautiful day. xoxo
