I first started a blog when planning my wedding; initially, it was to have basic info– where the wedding would be, information for out of town guests (hotels, things to do, maps to get to the wedding venue, restaurants near the hotels), registry information, information about Jewish weddings, and the like. Standard stuff. Because so many people were asking me questions about the wedding planning, I started blogging my progress as well.
Once the wedding planning process was over (ie I got married), I was still blogging a bit to the site: some lessons learned, photos and videos, etc. But something funny happened on the way to the wedding: I discovered I liked blogging. And I realized that some of my content would be quite useful to other brides (and to inquisitive guests attending Jewish weddings). And that there were other things I’d like to write about, mainly relating to my hobbies.
Since my original blog was single purpose (wedding related) and a semi-private site (you had to have the link to access it), I realized I needed to create a public blog. This is it!
I transferred the information over, and then have sporadically added content. I’m not a regular blogger… partly because to do pattern reviews or post recipes, it really helps to post the associated photos. Apparently, that’s my problem area! So hang in there, this is a work in progress.
