While, still narrowing down my goal and purpose for the content of this blog, besides a desire to write and share my ideas, I am aware that while I have a sense of needing to connect with parents to encourage and challenge them, I’m not quite sure how best to go about doing so without coming across like I know it all. Because, and this will come as no shock to those who know me, I don’t know everything there is to know about parenting, and probably never will.
I don’t want to write as someone who feels like they have it all together, and my true hope is that you all won’t read it that way.
I don’t know everything about parenting, but I do have a few ideas about some foundational truths that hold parenting and families together.
I have only read a couple of parenting books in my life and neither of them were great reads, although I did take something away from them.
Perhaps that is my goal for what I want to create and do with this blog and anything that may come with it. Perhaps my desire is for people, myself included, to just take something away from what I share. Something that might help them in life and in their role as parents.
I read today about making sure the purpose and message of a blog is clear and well understood. In my reading I learned this could often take up to a year to figure out. At this point my goal is simply to write, and start sharing my ideas freely with the small section of the world that happens to wander by.
Actual writing on parenting is coming, I promise.
