Why I Have Two Blogs

A reader emailed me recently and asked why I have two blogs and truthfully, it's a really good question.

And one I sometimes ask myself....

When I jumped into the world of blogging a little over a year ago, my main focus was just keeping up with what was happening in our family, having an online 'journal' of the crazy things happening in our house, and using it as an outlet of sorts. I was homeschooling, but for some reason didn't feel that it 'fit' on this blog.

I know, I know...I could make it fit, but it just didn't feel right to me.

I started Homeschool Creations primarily as an online record of what the kids were learning every week and never expected any one else to be interested in what was happening. Apparently I was very wrong on that front. Which just cracks me up to no end.

Is it hard keeping up with two blogs? I'll admit it ~ there are times that it is, but I've also learned that generally I am the one putting pressure on myself to do 'this' on a certain day and have posts going constantly. If I'm keeping it fun and doing what I want to do, it's not pressure at all. If I miss a day, I discovered that the world doesn't end {shocking revelation...who knew?}.

Basically, each blog is an extension two parts of me ~ the 'mommy/wife me' who likes to read and tell funny stories that will haunt my children for years to come and then the 'teacher me' who has an outlet to share a side of my creativity in a different way.

Either that...or I just have too much free time on my hands.


  1. ahh the answer to my question :-P In some ways its probably nice to have it on 2 separate spaces. I am not sure I would be able to keep up with both :-P

  2. I admire anyone who has a blog, let alone, two. You are a busy woman!

  3. I ran across your blogs while blog-hopping late this summer and have really enjoyed them! Your stories are funny and the ideas you put on your homeschooling blog have often inspired me! Love all the good Christian books too!

    Keep up the good work!

  4. Can I testify to the fact that it's NOT because you have too much free time on your hands! Besides, if you actually had a free minute, you'd find a project to do. ;-) Keep up the good work, you amazing woman you.

  5. I know you don't have too much free time on your hands! You have FOUR children, and I know you must be busier than I am with two--and I think I'm busy!

  6. Your reasoning makes good sense. :-) I prefer the potpourri approach on my "miscellaneous drawer" blog. But orderly is nice too. I don't follow this one, but I should!
