My First Ever Blog Post

I just created my first blog!

I have been thinking about creating a blog on and off for a while now, and finally just did it. My sister-in-law, Ali, just said, "You should have a blog." And I said, "Okay." And I did it.

Here are a couple reasons I was resistant to starting a blog:

- Don't know what to write
- Already on Facebook
- Not funny enough
- Not a good writer
- No kids yet (you will see a whole lot of just mine and Tanner's pretty faces for now!)
- Not enough time (even though I spend like 2 hours a day on Facebook...yikes)
- I don't want to write my personal journal online for all to see

Reasons I finally decided to start my blog:
- My sister will look at my blog more than my Facebook page and we can keep in touch more
- It's like a journal for all to see (it might take me awhile to warm up to the more personal stuff...see reasons not to start blog)
- Everyone can see what an amazing husband and life I have
- Reason to take more pictures
- Everyone is doing it!
- I feel guilty spending time on Facebook, but not on my blog
- My mom has a blog ( and she gets thousands of views...maybe I will too!

So in the end, obviously the latter reasons won out!

So here it goes...welcome to ATtheBrownsBlog!
(AT stands for Anne and Tanner...kinda clever, huh?! Pretty hard to create a clever name with the 4th most popular last name in the nation. So that will have to do!)

Enjoy! Whoever is watching.


  1. Way to go! Welcome to the 2010's and blogworld. :-D ~Linda Brill

  2. Anne you express yourself so well you should have a blog. I am glad you started one. I am excited to read it. Keep it coming...
    Love, Dad

  3. Oh, I love it already! I would have to beg to differ you are a fabulous writer, and very clever too I must say! I liked the name of your blog even before I read that AT meant Anne and Tanner! Wow. I can tell that reading your blog will be a highlight to my days.

  4. I am so excited to read your blog Anne. I am committing to reading 3-5 posts of your each week. I have to set these limits because if I don't I'll spend the whole day reading your posts. Not that doing that would be a bad thing, I just have so many other things to do as well. :-) Thank you so much for sharing your life with us. As a fellow Type Two, I just wanted you to know what a blessing you and Dressing Your Truth have been to my life.

    And I totally love your blog title. The AT = Anne and Tanner is pretty clever. Great job. :-)
