So they say that there are certain drugs that will eventually lead into other drugs, which lead into other drugs, which lead into other drugs….and so on, and so on. They call these drugs ‘gateway drugs’….
Lately, I’ve been thinking of my ‘gateway blogs’……
The first blog I ever read was about a little girl named Harper and her sweet mom Kelly. One of my friends had posted a status asking prayers for Harper, along with a link. I clicked there and I was enthralled in the life of Kellys Korner. I sat up most of the night reading through her blog.
While reading through Kelly’s blog, I saw a button on the side asking for Prayers for Stellan. I was curios. My curiosity lead me to MckMama. Again, I fell in love with her pictures, her kids, and baby Stellan.
On MckMamas, I read about Audrey Caroline. I was lead to Angie Smiths blog to read the story of her daughter Audrey who had died after only 2 hours of life. Angie is an amazing writer and also the wife of Todd Smith of Selah.
Just recently, Angie highlighted on her twitter about “NIE-NIE being on Oprah”….Who was “Nie-Nie”??? Once again, my curiosity lead me to her blog. I spent most of Saturday and Sunday reading from start to finish the NieNie Dialogues. If you do not know her story---go now, dont wait. She is an amazing woman- and her blog is so fun!
Sooo after I recognized all these ‘gateway blogs’- I realized ALL of them were Mommy blogs. Seriously? I am 21 years old and I all read are Mommy Blogs.
After this I registered for 20 Something Bloggers and I’m so happy to be reading blogs now (along still with all the ones above) about people my age! haha.
What were your gateway blogs?
