To My "Followers" & Why I Blog & Men

I just wanted to say thank you. If you are out there and you "follow" my blog it may not seem that I notice you, but I do. There are some that I correspond with via blog and off blog and others that I never get a comment from. Some of you like to lurk in the shadows and that is okay. I read some blogs that I am just a lurker. In reality I am more of a commenter, though! LOL! Some of you know that already. ;) However, you got here and for whatever reason you "follow" this blog I want to say "Welcome!" I want you here and I want you to feel comfortable when you visit. I would love to here from you, so feel free to leave comments even if it is the tiniest comment of all. I love to read them and I love knowing there are others out there. If you ever have a question just ask away. I am very open and honest and eager to tell (my own info, that is).

When I started this blog it was just to be able to sign on and comment on another blog. Then, I thought I would use it to make money, but... I have never even tried to and I truly don't care if I ever do. It is sort of a therapy for me and a way to connect with others that I have common ground with. I use it to gain knowledge about life, homeschooling, my Christianity, and share information. Honestly, I thought I would be able to share the experience of what it is like to be a homeschool family when your husband is a public school teacher (or if the wife was), but I am finding that not to be as rare as I assumed it was. I just wanted to let you all know I see you! ... and I am glad to have you here!

One more thing... Are there any men bloggers out there. I would really like to start reading some posts from Christian male bloggers. I would love to have my husband read some of it, too and I sooooo believe that men should be "teaching" and not just us women. Blogging could be a great tool for that!!! Do you know any good ones to share with me!!???


  1. I too love comments. I started this blog journey to follow a friend and to be able to comment on her blog. It has been a blessing to connect to other homeschool mothers, learn new things and in the process it has helped my family. Voddie Baucham has a blog....it may not be what you are looking for, but that is the only one, I know of right now.

  2. I have been reading your blog and not commenting but it's because when I do comment, I forget to go back to check to see if the blogger answered my question...haha! That said...I, too, am a wife of a public school teacher and coach! Our oldest is in public school, homeschooling 1 and 2 others waiting their turn to be homeschooled! So...you aren't alone!! ~DIANA

  3. Hey Shannon!
    Aww, you're so sweet. One of the most popular Christian male bloggers is challies.com. My husband (and I) love that blog!
    Catherine :)

  4. Hi Shannon, just popped over from your comment on my blog. What a beautiful family you have. That baby girl is positively huggable!

    I second the Voddie Baucham blog. Also, Doug Phillips has a blog on the Vision Forum website. Can't really think of any others right now.


  5. HI Shannon,
    Just wanted to thank you for he sweet and most encouraging comment you left on my blog a few days ago. It may have been longer but life is a blur right now and when I think I've commented back, I haven't . YOU, my friend, are so good at commenting. I always think I'm going to go back and do it and then someone starts crying or calling for mommy. :) I appreciate you and am so glad we're blogging buddies. :)

  6. I can't remember how I found you but I want you to know I have enjoyed reading your blog :)



I love comments and suggestions! I read them all and I am so thrilled you are taking the time out of your busy life to share your words with me! --Shannon
