Back to Blogging: Day 1

I am participating in the SITS Girls Back to Blogging event this week. It seems like a fun thing to do and it will be nice to see how my writing and my blog have evolved over the last year. The assignment for today is to re-post my first blog post which I have done below.

One month

So, I have survived my month as a mother.  And so has the baby.  I’ve learned at least 10 new things everyday, most importantly, perhaps, for this project, how to type  one-handed. Some background:  I had a relatively easy pregnancy, no complications and almost no problems at  all  until the last few weeks.   This culminated in an induced vaginal delivery and a bouncing baby boy.  The induction was due to ruptured membranes: my water didn’t break per se, the little guy tried to kick his way out and put a hole in the top of the sac.  I am working on breastfeeding, but am not evangelical.  I am just trying to be the best mom  i can and hope to use this blog to write things out.


It isn’t the most fabulous first post, but it isn’t that embarrassing either. If I could go back in time, about all I would fix that lowercase I in the last sentence and maybe be a little more interesting. When I started, I wasn’t too sure what I wanted this space to be and that is pretty obvious in the post.  That was the extent that I ever wrote about my birth story, which I do regret a little. Everything is a little fuzzier now, and I would like to have captured the story more in the moment.

  1. Thanks so much for visiting and leaving your sweet comments on my Back2Blogging challenge day one!
    I wouldn’t worry about the “lower case i” – my hubby says it’s classy to write in all lower case! LOL
    I do wish I had started out my blog with pics though. But we learn as we go, right?


  2. Isn’t it amazing? We think no one is reading to so don’t bother writing very much. It’s great though. The first line is my favorite! Thanks for reading mine!

    I think that was a really good first post. (So much better than mine!) And I couldn’t help but crack up at your breastfeeding but not evangelical comment! :) Liked that a lot! Isn’t it so fun to see how far we’ve come as bloggers?
