Hello all you bloggers out there! Welcome to the Ultimate Blog Party here at Tara Thinks. If you're coming here from 5 Minutes for Mom, welcome. If you're one of the people who read my blog regularly, check out the Ultimate Blog Party to find lots of cool new reads. You might even want to participate yourself (you can win great prizes too). I am excited at the prospect of finding new blogs, written by talented and interesting women. And I'm hoping that some people might find mine worth reading too.
I started blogging about a year ago at The Carpenter Clan - solely as a means of keeping a record of my family's comings and goings. My husband and I have been married for 6 1/2 years and have 3 sons, aged 3 1/2, almost 2, and 6 weeks. I posted a lot some months, less others, fell behind sometimes - but at the end of the year was happy with my efforts and had our family journal printed as a blog book (see this post).
But along the way I started connecting with other women and found that blogging can also be a fun networking tool for woman, especially SAHMoms who desparately need another adult to talk to during the day. I started Tara Thinks for myself - to blog about things that family members wouldn't necessarily be interested in and that I might not need to archive forever. I love to read, shop, cook, and work on my home - along with all the other things in my blog header!
Please take a look around my site and comment on this post or any other that might catch your interest. Leave your URL too - I would love to visit your blog if we have something in common. Also visit my Daily Delight feature by clicking on the button at the top of my sidebar. I started Daily Delight to remind myself of the things that bring me joy and that I think are beautiful, fun, or helpful. Thanks for visiting!
