Finding my Place in the Bloggers World

My mom used to teach us to always choose our friends wisely. She said there's a saying that goes: "show me who your friends are and I'll tell you who you are".

Here in the Bloggers World, I noticed that the LINKS or BLOGROLLS tells a lot about the Bloggers. With this note, I would like to admit that I still am trying to find my "group" is in this bloggers world. My blog roll is an assortment of interests and stuff of all sorts, and i like it that way. I like variety and assortment. But I know that somehow those assortment represents something....

If you've noticed, the "Blogs I Visit" are in alphabetical order instead of by category . I thought about categorizing them but there were overlaps so I didn't.

If I'd be very honest...I am feeling a bit " out of place" at this time. I still don't know exactly where I belong. For example, I visited a lot of Christian women blogs and they are wonderful and i am very much drawn to their blogs. But most of them are SAHM (Stay at Home Moms) and most are "homeschoolers". As much as I'd like to be in that circle...I don't know if I should. You see, part of the reason I started this blog is so that I can vent about my sentiments on being a working mom. All of my best friends here on Maui are SAHM, and many times I feel I am a "wannabe SAHM". So.. to make this long story short...the question I asked myself before I get so involved with the SAHM circle is "do I want to subject myself to this again? (being surrounded with SAHM moms)? That's what I already have here on Maui...maybe I need a support group of working women. Then I discovered BlondMomBlog and enjoyed it. yes, she's a working mom and enjoys her writing very well....But there's only a few "working women" blogs i really enjoyed.... Maybe I am just not the "career oriented type"...

And then there are the Christian Bloggers... But as much as I like talking about my Christian Life, I definitely don't want to leave behind my non-Christian friends and I don't want the Non-Christian bloggers to be uncomfortable in visiting my blog to the point that they won't come back.

And then there are the Pinoy Bloggers. I'm impressed at how much the Filipinos are very active in the Bloggers world! Most have excellent Blog sites! But then again after reading many of the Pinoy Blogs, I only have a few that I'd choose (they are now in my list of blogs I visit") because some of the blogs are too lengthy and I felt a little out of touch with the topics they are conversing about...

And how about my passion for advocating for kids with LD? ADHD struggles, etc?

Ok, I am rambling and babbling. Just tired. Maybe tomorrow morning I'd be more coherent....
