Day 1: Repost Your First Blog Post

It wasn't too hard for me to locate my first blog post since it was posted just over a month ago. This was my first post:

My First Time
Just when I thought I couldn't possibly fit anything else into my already hectic schedule. I have decided to enter into the world of blogging.

Hey Everyone,

Let me introduce my self. My name is Chanel and I am the mother of a very active 2-year old girl named Kyla. I am married to wonderful man who loves his family dearly.

I had the wonderful privilege of staying at home with my "chunky munk" for the first six months of her life. Then reality kicked back in and I went back to work as a server. A month later I was promoted to restaurant manager at a restaurant 45 minutes away. This is when the craziness began. Working 50+ hours a week, going to graduate school, tending to my family and home. I has almost been two years and everyday is an adventure.

This brings me to the reason that I started this blog. I don't have many friends with children. I needed an outlet to vent and share my experience with other and hope to also learn from other mothers. I also want to create something that my daughter can one day look back at and laugh at her crazy mother.

Looking back at my post I wouldn't change much. I would add a picture. I think this was a good introduction post. It let you know a little about me and why I started blogging. Here is my  edited post:

My First Time

Hey Everyone,

I had the wonderful privilege of staying at home with my "chunky munk" for the first six months of her life. Then reality kicked back in and I went back to work as a server.

This brings me to the reason that I started this blog. I've always loved to read and write (I was one of those nerdy kids that loved to get books for Christmas). I used to write all the time; poems, stories, essays you name it. Over the years I have lost touch with my creative side and I miss it. I figured that blogging would give me that creative outlet that I longed for. Being that I don't have many friends with children; I needed a place to vent and share my experiences with others. I hope to also learn from other mother's experiences and advice. My final reason for starting this blog is because I wanted to create something that my daughter can one day look back at and enjoy.
