I am taking a break from Wordless Wednesday to participate in Dishin’ It! hosted by Amanda at Serenity Now. Fun!
This month’s topic is all about your blog! Maybe I’ll find some more new blogs to read – as if I don’t have enough. I posted the blogs of people I know yesterday and next week I am going to post the bloggers I wish I knew The list may be embarrassingly long.
Anyways, here is all about The Dixon Dialogue.
I started blogging in 2007 when I found out that I was accepted to graduate school and would be moving from Nashville, TN to New York City. My blog had the clever (I think) title of “Tiny Worm, Big Apple.” I was a sporadic blogger because grad school was demanding and I had better things to do like live in New York City!
In February 2008 we found out that we were expecting this little stinker, Will.
We thought a cute way to tell our family and friends that we were expecting would be to set up a blog appropriately titled, Baby Dixon. When our family and friends went to the like it said “Under Construction: Coming this Fall.” For a while, I maintained both blogs because then my life really could be separated into two distinct categories – oh, how things change! Not to mention we moved back to Tennessee so Tiny Worm, Big Apple did not fit anymore.
A few months ago we decide that Baby Dixon did not accurately describe where we are in life anymore so we did a blog overhaul! I’m glad our marriage survived, ha! My husband is the web guru and I am the opinionated one so we make a good team. Our end result is this – The Dixon Dialogue.
What do I blog about? Mostly Will because he is so cute and funny! And in general just our everyday life – the good, the bad and the messy. I do book reviews for BookSneeze (free books! Go sign up!) I also try to convey what the Lord is teaching me although I am not very good about being vulnerable. I have recently signed up to be a Compassion blogger so I post information and updates about Compassion every so often. I am very passionate about social justice issues (comes with the territory of being a social worker) although I don’t blog about it often. (Goal: Blog more about social justice)
What else? What else? If I got to choose one famous person to follow my blog it would be Jennifer Garner. I really do think we would be good friends if we ever got to meet! My second choice would be Brian Williams because I just love him and think he is SO funny. I may or may not have stalked him when we lived in NYC.
Why do I blog? It keeps me sane It’s a great outlet and it helps me feel like I am not all alone out here in “mommy world.”
I am looking forward to reading all about everyone else’s blogs. Yay!
