When I began this blog, I really had no understanding that it was even possible to gain an audience. It began mostly just as a writing exercise and a creative outlet for me. It is so nice (though sometimes still a little intimidating) to know that there are people who read the posts I publish! Whether you have read just one post, you are a sporadic visitor, or one of my loyal readers - I appreciate you taking the time to visit The Most -- of Every Moment.
I am very grateful for the readers who loyally comment on nearly every post, especially those who are busy writing blogs themselves. Even in the past months, when I have been commenting on and sharing your posts less and less, you have faithfully continued to support mine. I am looking forward to getting back to a better blog visiting schedule soon - and catch up with all that I have missed.
November is National Blog Posting Month, "NaBloPoMo." While I do not plan to increase my posting schedule to daily this month, I did take a peek at the daily prompts posted on the Blogher website. Some of them look really fun to answer, and may be my inspiration for a few posts.
Today, the prompt on Blogher was "What was the one toy that a friend had that you wished you had when you were little?"
My answer is definitely an Easy Bake Oven. I remember desperately envying my friends for having one. My mom's response to my request was always, "Why do you need one of those, when I can teach you how to use my oven?"
I couldn't resist buying my daughter her very own easy bake oven when she was young and it was practically being given away during a Black Friday sale. It was a lot of fun for her at first, but then it did not get a lot of use, and eventually we gave it away.
In retrospect - I think my mom's decision was a smart one. Her patience while teaching me to cook and bake, and learn to use her oven led to my lifelong love of baking!
How would you answer the November 2nd Blogher NaBloPoMom prompt question above?
