Welcome back to Taylor Talks!
I've been writing this blog for so long now that I often forget about previous posts. What have I written about before? What comments have I received and replied to? Some posts were written over a year ago, and so much happens in my daily life that I forget about previous blog entries.
Today, I started receiving comments on some blog posts from way back at the beginning of Taylor Talks. It was clear that I had a new reader who was starting to read posts at the very beginning and working her way forward. It was so nice to receive her comments (thank you, Dawn!) and it was also great to re-read some old blog posts.
I still feel like I'm unsure of how to share my blog with new readers, so it's always surprising when someone reaches out to me via a comment. Just because I've been blogging for quite a while now, doesn't mean that I know exactly what I'm doing yet! Blogging definitely an art form that takes a lot of skill and work. Some days I feel like I have this stuff down, I'm so proud of how things are going, and other days I struggle, wondering why I continue to blog each day.
On a day like today, where I am reminded of how far I have come in this blogging journey, I feel like I have accomplished an amazing amount of work. I feel like even if I have off days, I'm doing something amazing for myself by continuing to push myself in my writing. No one is perfect; even if you've been writing or blogging for years and years, you're always going to have an off day here and there. It's completely normal to have ups and downs in your career path, and this is exactly what blogging is for me; this is part of my career path, providing a place to write each day and to learn and grow in my craft.
I think that taking a look back at some of my old blog posts reminded me of why I started this blog. I love writing about my daily life and important things that are happening for my family, but I love writing about foster care and adoption as well. I love writing about the way my family is perceived by the community, to bring awareness about foster families to the public. I like sharing information about foster care that people may be misinformed about. I hope to bring awareness about foster care and adoption and encourage more families to start their own foster care journeys.
I'm still hoping to receive some adoption stories to share before the end of the month for National Adoption Month. You can go back to that post to see what I'm looking for. I'm also always willing to answer questions about our experiences, so please feel free to comment on any blog post whenever you'd like to know something. I really appreciate having so many readers and I love finding out when new readers stop by to explore Taylor Talks!
Thank you so much for your continued support! I look forward to sharing more stories about my experience with foster care, and hopefully hearing from readers who have questions or similar stories to share. I'm always willing to answer questions and hear about other experiences! Please don't forget to like and share my Facebook author page as well!
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.
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.
