After my most recent post I was filled with a renewed energy from all of your comments. I was holding on to the criticism that I received from this women thinking that I could make use of it to improve my writing.
The fact is that I have never have dealt with negativity well and her words were taking me down. I couldnt move away from the criticism and I started to climb into my dark, little hole to stay for a while.
When I received all of your positive comments I slowly began to crawl out confirming that positive criticism is much more productive.
Please make sure that you go back to my website to see my replies. Your comments are my important feedback and I respond to every one, even the scathing ones.
Social Networking has proven to be an incredible phenomena for me. Admittedly, in the beginning I hated the entire concept. I wanted to write, not socialize. Who had time for that? But now I see that I was closed minded. Global Technology has opened up an amazing world of new friends and connections, it is my new travel.
When I started writing, I set sail on a spiritual, psychological, physical and emotional journey. To be honest, I had no idea what a blog was I just knew it provided a great vehicle for writing all that I had been storing in my head for so long.
I really hated when people would lump me in with all the other mommy bloggers. I wanted my own individuality with my writing.
No, I would explain, I am a new and aspiring writer trying to make a living as I raise my three boys. I am looking to build a platform and to connect with book and magazine publishers and agents.
My SEO/Renaissance man, sorry Eric I cant move away from that tag, tried to feed it to me lightly. Ok, if youre not a mommy blogger then how would you like to define yourself? I saw his point.
I read that sleeping and dreaming is a time where all of our thoughts from the day get organized in our brains. I find that mommy blogging is a similar process and it is no surprise to me that it has become the latest trend.
Successfully mastering being a mother and a wife is an enormous undertaking and we, as mothers and fathers, have needed to unite for a long time to combine efforts and help provide each other with invaluable information that you can’t get in text books.
I can speak for a large percentage of parents who are in shock at their responsibilities and we have discovered that writing about our issues helps us to analyze our progress as we observe our lives objectively.
When I was on Twitter the other day one of the Celebrity posts asked for some input in to who we would like to read about. I responded, “Move over Paris, Mommy Bloggers are the new Celebrities. We don’t focus on starving ourselves and plumping our lips. We are real and raw and ready to tell everyone a little more about life and many of us are naturally sexy without even trying!”
