A Blogger's Past.

Tuesday, November 27, 2012

Today, I get to share a personal story or talk about who I am thanks to Becky at From Mrs. to Mama. It's called the Women Connect. In the hopes that we all can connect with people going through the same as us.

She suggested describing who we are, why we write or just a personal story.

Trying to introduce yourself is hard.

Hello, I'm Krista...getting married to the love of my life June 7, kitty mama, motherless daughter, still trying to find my dream job.

Um. Not digging it.

Let's try the story behind why I blog.

I started blogging in 2010 after I had stumbled on a blog randomly searching something in Google. I went through it and read how this person was sharing their whole life on this little space on the Internet. Feelings, experiences, everything. It seemed she was giving everyone a peek into her life. And I thought about how I wanted to do that.

I love writing. Always have. This seemed like a great opportunity. But I started out on a random blog interface because I wasn't fully convinced I wanted my blog out there, wanted people reading what I was writing. It was more of a diary for me, a way to pour out my thoughts and feelings at a difficult time. Boy, wish I knew what kind of community would have helped me here.. 

Dealing with the loss of my mother the year before, graduating college and not finding the job I had hoped and just going along everyday not sure what tomorrow would bring. The blog was my place to go when I had strong feelings, when I wanted to document happenings in my life. It became therapy for me.

In March 2012, I finally made the decision to move my blog to Blogger and become a part of the blogging community. I was ready to share what I wrote with everyone. I don't know what took me so long. I love getting comments on what I'm writing and being able to share my life and experience with my friends and family far away.

I write about the grief that comes with being 'a motherless daughter.' It's a never ending healing process.

I write about all the wedding plans we have been embarking on in the past few months and will continue until wedding day and after!

I write about the life I live my little family in a new place.

And I write about all the quirky things that come into my brain. And you might also notice, I can be very opinionated ;)

But this little space has become my brag brook, my life documenter and some days, my therapy. Hope you enjoy and if you dare, feel free to read my very first entry!


  1. I found your blog on Mrs. to Mama! I am also a motherless daughter, and it is so true when you say that it's a neverending healing process. Mine has been gone almost 7 years, and yet I still miss her terribly!! I look forward to reading more!

  2. Hi Krista! I'm visiting from Women Connect. I'm sorry to hear about your mother, I can only imagine how hard it can be.
