My first blogorail

blogorail logo (green)Welcome to those of you joining me from Disney Dream Finder. I am the 5th stop on our Magical Blogorail.  This month, we are focusing on information about us, about our blogs, and what inspired us to start our blogs.

I’ve been a Disney fan since the word go.  As a toddler, I carried a small plastic Mickey Mouse around with me.  I wanted to go to Disney World for as long as I could remember.  Once I found out we were going when I was nine, I read every guidebook I could.  You know how normal people’s parents will tell people about how their kid always liked baseball?  My mom will tell you about how I lectured them on going left vs. right when touring the Magic Kingdom on our first trip.  (I’m still not over Betamouse bursting my bubble over that).  I went back twice after that-when I was 12, and as my high school graduation present in 2002.

Flash forward to 2005.  My mother and I had had a God-awful run of 2004 and 2005-my father and grandmother died within 10 months of each other, our cat died in the interim, I got mono and had to take a semester off school.  Anyway, we decided to go away, and as I always wanted to go to Disneyland, we went.  It was great.  I decided to go to Disney World on my Spring Break.  Following that, once I graduated college and decided I wanted to go to WDW every other year.

I write the blog I would want to read.  This means that I will be talking about hair in one post, and food in another.  I try to keep my blog varied, with many different topics discussed.  As you may have noticed, I’m not a very loquacious blogger.  Oh, and I like my parentheses.

This blog has a few different roots-one big one was when I was applying for the Mom’s Panel in 2009.  I did not make it, but it helped me shape what would eventually become this blog’s “elevator speech.”  Shortly after the “I should start a Disney Blog!” half-baked idea settled in, the Social Media Moms event took place.  Now, I have nothing against Mom bloggers (heck, I bet I have more in my google reader than most twenty-something PANKS do).  However, it seemed like Disney was missing out on a key demographic by not including me-is my Disney Visa not at the ready as soon as “Disney” or “Social Media” are said?  So I began this blog.  A huge inspiration to me was also Melanie of Savvy Auntie-seeing her create an empire based upon the idea of people spending money on children’s things that aren’t parents helped give this blog a push.

Your next stop on the Magical Blogorail Loop is Your Highway in the Sky.

    I think you would be a great Disney Mom. And your subject is my favorite since much of what I write about is that WDW is for adults more than kids. Welcome aboard.
