In case you haven’t heard, there is something in the works for a Mom Blog Reality Show. They wish to interview moms in different niches about their social media activity.
Intriguing, isn’t it?
I do have a lot to say on the matter, but I need to keep my submission to 500 words or less. You will just have to wait to hear my thoughts later. So here goes:
Who Am I?
I am Erika. The term Mommy Blogger, maybe, doesn’t quite fit me. I do sometimes bristle at the category. Yes, I am a Mommy, but there is so much more…
I write about everything. I started writing in the Fall of 2009 because I wanted to tell the stories of my life. I have one simple goal in my writing:
To make people smile, laugh and feel good.
Why Am I Unique?
I think there is a distinct feel to my writing. No matter what the subject is, it is upbeat, fun and positive. I can’t help it because that is who I am. It is just how I look at life and I try to convey that as much as possible to my readers.
In January 2010, I created a meme called Feel Good Friday. I did it because in my own life I feel that no matter how bad or sad or frustrating life is; there is always something to feel good about.
Our dog had cancer, my husband’s best friend was dying of cancer, his mother also was diagnosed with cancer, I had been sick in bed for 17 days, yet, there were still things to feel good about.
You have to look for it, train your mind to find it and life is so much better when you do.
Where Am I Going? What Am I Doing?
It is the old phrase, “Be careful what you ask for, because you just might get it!”
I started blogging with a simple goal of seeing if there were people in the world that would enjoy my point-of-view, who would laugh with me and at me… and they do!
My blog quickly took off in the winter of 2010 and yes, sometimes it is a little overwhelming trying to fit it all in. My family is truly my first priority. Blogging is still so new to me and I am still learning to find the right balance.
I could just write with no communication whatsoever, but I don’t and I won’t. Blogging, to me, is about the relationships with others, the interactions and the discussions. I am letting people into my thoughts and my world. Communication is vital.
As for the future? I just want to keep on making people smile. The emails I receive telling me how I have made someone’s day better or brighter makes it all worthwhile.
You have already seen the infamous vlog… so, would you want to see me on TV?
**Yes, I am still on my blogcation. I will be back next week refreshed and raring to go!!**
