My Online Journal

I posted 378 blog posts in 2012.

I was going post about our past four days right now, but it seems my computer is FULL! Yep, full of pictures, that is. So, I'm moving some over to my external drive.

Backing up and moving things can kind of take some time so I was browsing around my blog and thinking about a new year or blogging. I looked down on my sidebar at my archives to see that 2012 had 378 next to it. That kind of shocked me. I mean I know I blog a lot, but to think that I averaged at least a post a day? I never would have thought! It doesn't feel like I've blogged that much. I think a good portion of those came from doing 31 Days of Twin Treats in October and doubling up on a few other things.

I know many weekends pass where I don't do a post. For the past year, I've typically posted in the morning time while the babies are taking their nap. Then, during their afternoon nap, I do things around the house. On the weekends, Brent is here so I typically end up spending time with him during the nap and getting things done around the house. He is now going to bed relatively early and waking up early, as he recently started CrossFit, so that also leaves me a little more alone time since I run on little sleep. Now that the babies are working on transitioning to one nap, I'll probably work on my post during Brent's sleeping hours.

Is it weird that I thought about this?

I don't really think so. I want to make a point to have quiet time with God and blog each day. When I'm alone, those are the things I want to do. I don't feel like those are things I have to do, by any means, but I enjoy doing them and I feel better when I do. They are just part of my day, kind of like brushing my teeth.

I've fallen out of the loop of blogging our days and I want to get back of it. I can imagine it's quite boring for some, but it's the main reason for this blog, so I want to keep it up! Of course I'll be blogging other things, too!

I do blog some sponsored posts, and most of the time I enjoy it. All of the opinions are my own. Sure, I've had companies send me things that I didn't like. Instead of wasting space on my blog telling what and why I didn't like it, I simply didn't share. I've declined products and services I don't believe it and will continue to do so if need be. I've found and learned so many things through the blog world and social media so I do know they provide a great sharing platform. I occasionally receive products and/or compensation and I will indicate so. Obviously that's not why I blog, or what keeps me doing so, but of course it's a nice little perk!

I share my life, things I like and everything in between. I'm random. If you've been reading, you probably feel like you know me, as you should. I think I did a post a few months ago talking about feeling shy lately. I felt like lately I had been thinking what to post instead of just opening up my blog and posting. I don't think I was censoring what I said, but I was wondering if people cared and why they would care.

I snapped out of that pretty quickly. In a way, it's one of those "you can't really care what people think" scenarios. I want to post what's on my heart; I want to post my opinions; I want to post my pictures. This is my journal and I'm going to look back on it and read about our life. I'm going to remember our moments.

I welcome different opinions, of course, and I know having an online journal means having people read and chime in. I enjoy that. Even though this is my journal, I still love the interacting, socializing and networking with others. That's also a nice perk of having an online journal!

I'd love to know if you are reading so I can know you. Do yo have a blog?


{I think this may be my favorite picture of Brent and I from 2012 and it was taken on New Year's Eve :}

  6. I've been a long-time reader, and I've been blogging since about 2005 (long ago!) My blog is www.lovejaime.com. I have a little guy about two weeks younger than your twins. It's fun to compare their milestones. :)

    I consistently blog about my opinions! ;) I take the command seriously that older women are to train the younger women to love their husbands and children, be keepers at home, etc. I so wish there were older women around when I was young and raising four children to train me! God knows what He is talking about...we just need to listen and obey.

    Blessings,
    Lori

  8. I do love reading your blog, even if it is a sponsored post! I always wanted to start a blog but was afraid to post my feelings online because I thought I was going to hurt feelings, but in the end, I am glad I have a blog! It's a good creative outlet for me and a fun way to make new friends! You can follow me at bettertogetherandforever.blogspot.com ~Jessica :)

  11. My favorite blogs to read are the ones where people use them as online journals. That's definitely what I do! I have blogged since our engagement in 2008. I had almost 300 posts in 2012 so it's safe to say it's a hobby that I've stuck with! Happy New Year!

  14. Wow, that is a lot of blogging! I don't blog every day. It is my goal to be consistent but sometimes I just don't feel like it. And I don't like putting pressure on myself either. But I do love it and will keep going for as long as it still fits me.

  40. I enjoy your blog because as a mom I really like reading from other moms I can relate to. It's nice to share ideas and inspire each other. I will only read a blog if they make me feel positive and/or inspire me to better myself.

  44. Hi Megan...I have been following your blog (I don't remember how I found you) before Cohen was born. My heart broke for you when you found out he had heart defects. My heart is also not well and recently had a cardiac ablation and hopefully will have a good outcome after my heart heals. I love your stories and pictures of those cute little babes. My daughter had her baby girl on 8/12/11 and named her Lily. She also has a dog just like yours named Elvis.

    I do not have a blog but love reading several on a daily basis..The Pioneer Woman, Enjoying the Small Things and yours.

    I look forward to many more blog posts and pictures..oh...and recipes.

  55. I have been reading your blog for a few years now. I have been blogging religiously for just over 6 years since we began the process to adopt our 1st child. I love having my blog and looking back through it. I am so grateful I started it. It has also allowed me to find so many other blogs out there that give me inspiration, hope, spawn my creativity or just open my eyes to new things. I have prayed for your family so many times and still continue to. Thank you for your honesty. I guess it's about time I chimed in to let you know I've been reading. :)

  56. I'm a new reader, I found your blog while I was doing a google search. Something about the way you write just connected with me! Sometimes I feel shy when posting because I feel like its not interesting but like you said its an online journal so if you aren't posting what you feel then it sort of loses its meaning.

What a wonderful mom you've turned in to and of course, I've followed all of your heartbreak and joy along the way... I have a blog, Every Day that follows, but I have never been able to get going with it even though I love to write. Your dedication to yours is an inspiration so maybe this will be the year that I start joining in!

  61. I've been reading your blog since Cohen was born! My blog is www.callmemal.blogspot.com and I post every day, too, though I don't have nearly the attention you do.

  70. I've been reading for years (before I had a blog OR a baby), and have always enjoyed the easiness of your writing...now that we have a little boy, I am always looking to you for advice, suggestions and reviews - mostly for baby things, but also everyday things. Now that I have a blog, I can agree that it's hard to not think if people will like what you're writing, but who cares?! Your blog is one of my favorites...simply because you do just write sometimes...it's refreshing! I love seeing the babies in their pjs with food on their faces...it makes me feel like an OK mom. ;) Thanks for writing!! xo

  72. I've been reading your blog since towards the end of your pregnancy with Cohen. I don't even recall how I came to your blog, but I'm glaI did :) I made a habit of praying every single day for your family after hearing Cohens story, and it just became so much part of my morning prayer that, to this day, I still pray for you guys every single day! :) (Probably sounds strange coming from a COMPLETE stranger :)) Your children are absolutley precious! I LOVE that pic of you and Brent. I blog too, but not often, and never about anything super interesting! ;)

  97. I love your blog I've been reading it for three years now. I really admire how open you were about Cohen and then with Knox and Sloane. I'm really happy that things seem to be going well for you. I blog too. I've done three I start a new one as a chapter in my life changes (single/dating/married). This is my Mrs. blog: http://thenextqueenb.blogspot.com/

  98. Hi Megan! I've been reading your blog for a while now, at least over a year now, I know it was before your twins were born. I started my own blog last April. This is me: http://www.adventuresofmissmare.blogspot.com/

  100. Hi Megan! I've been reading your blog since y'all found out about sweet Cohen's heart. I love reading about your twins, your life, and everything random in between. :) I blog, but not consistently. I'm hoping to get better about it. :)

  106. I blog at crazycherrybear.blogspot.com i'm horrible about commenting, guess I shouldn't wonder why I don't get many comments! My goal is to blog more memories this year and more about my life. It's been lacking lately!

  107. I've been reading your blog since I heard about Cohen. As I read your words during that difficult time in your life, I cried along with you as if I really knew you personally.
    I continue to read because I'm happy that you & Brent have your precious twins and have been able to move on with your lives while always remembering Cohen. I'm so happy for you & your little family.
    I do blog. I don't do it for any reason except to keep a journal of my life with my boys. It took my husband & I almost 9 years to start our family and I try to document our memories for my boys as best as I can.
    I will say this, I enjoy reading your blog much more when I can "feel" your feelings about your sweet family and life pour out in your words.

  108. I started reading when you were pregnant with Cohen. I have to admit that I got pregnant shortly after, and it became hard to read. Which makes me realize how terribly difficult it must have been to share. I have a tiny blog. It really is my journal, and I've never tried for an audience, really. I love just being able to use it to document and get my thoughts out. http://monsterproof.blogspot.com/

  109. I also started reading your blog when you were pregnant with Cohen. I love reading about your twins who aren't much younger than my son Cooper. My blog is www.kdcline.blogspot.com

  110. I blog at kellyreedwatson.blogspot.com My husband and I are on a journey through infertility, and reading your blog has made me realize that I'm not alone. It gave me courage to tell loved ones about our struggles and to start blogging about what's on my heart.

  112. I've read your blog since you were pregnant with Cohen. Your blogged sparked my interest, not only because of the story of Cohen's journey, but also because of his name. We had Cohen picked out for our first son and he arrived in June 2011. We spelled his name Coen, because we just liked that better.

    You have a beautiful family. I'm so happy that your twins are here and safe. I think about Cohen often and wonder what he would think of these siblings... I bet he's having fun watching from above.

    Happy New Year.

  113. HI! Been reading your blog forever! Follow you on Instagram too! I've commented a few times, even on your blog's Facebook page. Little about me...I just turned 39 on Christmas (not sure how I feel about that number yet? Ha)I've been married for almost 19 years, in February. I have three children and live in Pearland, TX.

  117. I've been reading your blog for a couple years now (as well as following you in Twitter & Instagram) and this might be my first time commenting. However, recently I went back and reread your Cohen posts because our first child was born last month and we had to say goodbye all too soon due to breathing complications. I appreciate your honesty in all of your posts and look forward to reading each one of them. Thank you from one Meaghan to another :)

  127. Hi, Megan! I LOVE LOVE your blog! I forgot to comment on yesterday's post, so I figured I would today. Your blog inspired me to start my blog after I married my high school sweetheart in June 2012! I think that it is amazing how open you are with readers about your life and family. I truly loved reading through the posts of Cohen's story and it has been a joy to see the twins grow throughout the last five months. Love your new blog layout, as well! I contacted Jessica at Diamond Dolls in November and she is going to help me with a new design! Thanks for sharing her info! I blog over at http://lovelaughterhappyeverafter.blogspot.com/ :)

  129. I LOVE your blog. I started reading the day the twins were born and became instantly hooked. I love the all the pictures and updates of the babies.

  134. I think it's always important to have a time of reflection in blogging, to reevaluate, to renew, and I love that in this post you share a little of your thoughts on that. I love that picture of you and Brent!

  135. I've been following you for quite a while...I found you through my sweet friend, Laura, over at Grizaland. I feel stalker-ish to have been so diligent about keeping up with you and your sweet twins, but I guess that is the way of the blog world!

  138. Hi! I think I started reading right around the time Cohen was born. I have loved reading about your adventures with Sloane and Knox, as well as how you continue to honor Cohen in your lives. I had a baby right around the time your twins were born, so it's fun for me to see what they are up to. I love that you always seem so upbeat. Thanks for sharing all that you do!

    I don't have a blog, but I am on twitter as jenlob :)

  139. Hi Megan! I've been reading your blog since you got pregnant with baby Cohen. I can't even remember what led me to start reading it. :) Been hooked ever since. My blog and I'm still working on it is www.emmaroserenee.blogspot.com. It's a work in process.... ha!

  140. I've enjoyed your blog for years and appreciate your open, honest and fun posts. Our little guy is just a day older than your twins, so it especially fun to follow you and your cuties as they are growing, changing and going through the same things as my son. Thanks for sharing your journal online!

  141. I've loved and read your blog for over 2 years now, and I really feel like I know you! You are just too sweet--you've commented on a few of my posts and it always makes me happy to see that. I feel like I'm almost famous with someone such as you reading my blog :) I think 2013 is going to be a great year, and I'm praying for the same for you and your precious family!! God is so good!

  142. I love reading your blog. I started reading while you were pregnant with Cohen. I found out during my last pregnancy that my Isabelle would be a heart baby as well and also have Down Syndrome. She had her OHS at 4 months and we just past her 1 year anniversary.
    Your babies are beautiful!!

  146. I've been reading since before you were preggo with Cohen :) your faith is really inspiring! and your Twins are 2 days younger than my Daughter! I love seeing what they are doing compared to my girl :)

    I've been blogging for a few years, but really got started while going thru fertility Treatments, and then when the Lord lead us to our girl, from Foster care! she was born addicted to lots of drugs :( I love being able to document our life with her! we get to adopt her too!!

  148. Hi there! Im so glad to hear you may go back to some of your everyday posts! I always enjoy what I read on your blog and I learn a lot about a lot of topics too... but I especially LOVE midweek randoms and brain dumps. I guess that's the way my head works too and I have actually found several products I like from those posts :) I have been reading since June od 2010 when Matt alerted me to Cohen's situation. I'm so glad we got to know each other a bit. I have let my life run away with me the last two years or so and have let my (half-hearted attempt at a blog-with-no-readers lapse...)I have decided to get back to the life I want and love for 2013. I have resolved to be positive and optimistic and healthy and meet the new year head-on. One of the things I'd like to get back to is reading blogs and yours is one of my favies :)Hope you and your family have a wonderful and blessed 2013!
    Mel.

  149. I started reading because of Cohen and keep coming back because you're inspiring. Thanks for that.

    I started a blog of my own not too long ago to document the process of building our new house. I'm hopeful I'll keep it up once the house is built and decorated. :) No guarantees. I'm amazed how much time it takes me to take photos, edit them and then draft the post itself. Not sure how you long-time bloggers do it!!
