Welcome to My Blog

You may know me as a daughter of Sarah Palin or the pregnant teenager that created a political controversy during the last Presidential cycle. But a lot has happened since then.

Now, I’m mom trying to make a good life for a rambunctious little boy who loves to play hockey and ride on the snow machine. Over the past few years, I’ve made mistakes, I’ve learned some lessons, and I’m trying to be a good mom. After a few years of entering the public conversation in a very dramatic fashion, we’re doing well. We have a “fixer-upper” in Alaska which I’m remodeling, and we’re trying to forge a life for ourselves.

Yes, I may have a mom who’s quite famous and a dad who’s an Iron Dog champion, but I’m like many American moms. I worry about the best way to raise my child, am concerned about making sure he has the best care, and am trying to make it to my job on time without getting pulled over for speeding.

As you can tell, I’ve also decided to write a blog. Here I’d love to keep a record of the things that happen in my life and also to share them with my far-flung friends. Wasilla is my home, of course, but so many of you showed support to me as I struggled with a pregnancy I hadn’t planned, supported my mother when she ran for Vice President, voted for me when I was on Dancing with the Stars, and snatched up my book to make it a best seller. It’s been my privilege to get to know some of you – on the campaign trail, on my book tour, and even on Facebook. I hope you consider this blog a way for you to be a part of my life in Alaska without having to put on more layers, buy hand warmers, or wear boots!

Here on Lake Lucille, life is thankfully more ordinary than it has been the past few years. If you’d like to share in our lives by following my new blog, leave a comment below to automatically receive a weekly e-zine with my best entries! (Also, if you haven’t already, fan me on Facebook here!) I’m thinking of posting a photo of Tripp with a Mohawk, doing some very fun giveaways, and maybe even comment on the next season of Dancing with the Stars.

I hope you’ll join me!

      Hi Bristol!

      Cool blog and glad to see you are doing well. I have had the great pleasure of meeting your mom several times around the country, your dad and even you in Madison last April for the tea party rally! You’re mother is such a great woman and I really admire her faith and patriotism. I hope to see you and your mom sometime soon and I look forward to reading your blog entries. Tell your mom Christian from Chicago says hello! :)

      God Bless you!

        Bristol may the Lord continue to bless you and your family. I pray everyday that the Lord will open the door for your mother to get into this presidential race for such a time as this. Tell my do you and your family go to church?

    I have no idea where you find the time to write a blog, but go for it.

  • Leona Laico Galal

    I think you and your family are great!
    You are correct, your mom is much prettier than all those who try to portray her, and also much smarter.
