This is me on a good day which, in my hectic life, are few and far between. Hair flat ironed, make up applied and dressed to the nines.
Me, on a typical day. After I’ve gotten all 5 kids off to school, switched laundry loads, swept up the animal hair and dust bunnies, emptied the dishwasher and all the other things that us moms do, I look and FEEL more like…
I am living in the modern nuclear family. Yours, mine and ours. My blog is unique in that I capture the voice of the step-mother, the bio-mother, the ex-wife and the second wife and under all those hats there are many stories to tell. Not to mention, I have a very different approach at how I write. I’d like to think that my friends and readers never know exactly what’s going to jump out at them when they land here, on Rock and Drool.
Blogging for me, started out as what I thought would be a non addictive, anti-anxiety med substitute. Turns out I was probably better off filling that prescription because it would have been less addicting! It has become my go to, my turn to, my head and my shoulders. I blog to put it all out there. To get it off my chest, give it to you and beg you to help me figure out what to do with it. I also blog because writing is a passion and the only way to grow as a writer is to do it every day. So, I try, every single day, to write. Someday, I hope to have a book or two to brag about. I’d probably have them completed already if I wasn’t always on Twitter, chatting with all my friends!
My blog hasn’t grown in numbers the way I had hoped, especially for a blog that is over 2 years old. That is pre-historic in blog years. But, many of my original blog friends are still hanging tight with me, the old fossil! I’d say that is what makes me a successful blogger.
Is my story unique? Yes. Because it’s MINE. It may be similar to many others but I have a very different way of telling it like it is though my words, my stories.
And that…is my story.
I could use all of your support, please.
if you would tweet…
