What do you blog about? {In your own words}
I have been blogging on and off since late 2006 and I like to think of it as my free therapy…so far it seems like it might be working. One can hope!

I have always loved writing, starting with poetry as a teenager, which kinda fizzled after my angsty teen years. I started blogging almost 6 years ago. I write about my family, mothering teens, Asperger’s and autism, aging, my faith and lessons I learn, homeschooling our son, public schooling our daughter, our neighbor’s cat, and our HOA. Generally, whatever hits me when I sit down at the keyboard! I also throw some humor at you and yes, even the occasional poem!

Yes, writing helps me keep my sanity, but I also want to encourage people, make people laugh, help people see that there are always lessons we can learn from our circumstances.

Mainly for my own mental health, but also because I love writing. I consider it free therapy. LOL.

"Hey everyone! Don't forget to "like" each other's blog pages on FB from your personal FB page. Otherwise, FB does not count your "like" if it is through your blog page. Hope that makes sense! :-) Joell"
