Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
I hope you’ll forgive me, but I’m still exhausted from the hospital stay, sick twins, sleeping on a floor for two nights, and the chaos that we came home to. I’m hoping to be back to regular blog posts within a day or two.
In the meantime, tonight’s post is in honor of five months of blogging! I can’t believe that I started on this endeavor exactly five months ago, and that I’ve written over 150 blog posts! I am so proud of what this blog has become, and even though I don’t have a huge following, I am beyond grateful for the small following that I do have.
I have heard from people who have big families and can relate to my life, and people who are beginning their own foster care journeys. I’ve been able to share my blog posts with my wonderful mom, who inspires me to keep going and see what this blog might become someday. In just five short months, I have learned to take my love/hate relationship with this blog (love writing & sharing my life… hate squeezing in time each day to do it, and those days of writer’s block really kill ya) and make it an essential part of my daily life.
Through the ups and the downs, happy times and sad times, this blog has become my way of escaping from reality for just a minute and venting when I don’t want to bother people in the real world. I couldn’t imagine life without it now. And no matter how little or how many people continue to stick with me and read each day, I know that I’ll continue to post even if it’s just for myself.
Thank you to all of you readers who do stop by to see what I’m up to each day. Please remember that you don’t need to put in an email address to comment on a post, and you can always comment as “Anonymous” so you don’t need to share your name. I hope to connect with more people in the future and hear about your stories as well.
As always, I’d greatly appreciate it if you would share this blog with friends and family through your favorite social media sites. If you’re sharing on Twitter, don’t forget to tag me (@TayTayK02) and use the hashtag #TaylorTalks. I can’t grow my audience on my own… it’s up to my readers to share with family and friends to help people learn about this blog. And I promise that someday you’ll all be able to say, “I read Taylor Talks before Taylor Faith Krigsman became a published author.” I know that the future is bright, and I’m so thankful for everyone who has supported me in the beginning of my writing career.
My family has been doing foster care since I was three years old. I'm the only biological child in my family, though I now have five permanent siblings. Having nineteen siblings over the course of my lifetime has been an incredible experience, and I'm hoping that by sharing some of the ups and downs of being the only bio kid in a foster family, other foster families or people looking into doing foster care will be able to learn a bit of what life can be like. I also like to share what life is like on my journey to becoming a published author, as well as where my schooling and career choice are taking me.
