Most of the time I do not have the time to write everything that I do write for my blog. I have to spend my days being the primary care taker for my children and I wouldn’t change that for the world. I love them, but it does make blogging difficult. Why, because at the end of the day when it is “my time” I’m exhausted. Pooped, Dead dog tired.
So, while I have reviews, thank yous for donations, and giveaways to post for my readers, I can hardly think. So then when I’m trying so hard and staring at the screen I often wonder if what I wrote made any sense at all.
I have so much that I want to write. I have so much personality I want to present to the www. It just takes so much time that I don’t have so most of my personal posts get put on hold. With the controversy out there over the term of “mommy bloggers” and “review bloggers” and “bloggers” I sometimes wonder, do I actually qualify as a “mommy blogger”. I have been nominated for the Love this site award on Divine Caroline and often find myself wondering about my worthiness for that category. Perhaps I should be in the play category but then I think about what it means to be a mom.
As a mom, I clean, I cook, I organize, I play, I teach, I talk, I share, I love, I accept, I discipline, I file, I manage; as a mom, I do everything. So writing about reviews, and products is to me part of being a mom. I am active in a local MOMS Club and as moms we see each other in cute clothes and shoes and ask where did you get that? That’s what Review Bloggers Do, it is an extension of being a mommy and sharing.
However, when I am tired I have a hard time articulating how I feel. I also take more personally than I should when I’m tired. I feel like the world is out to get me and that’s pretty arrogant for me to think that. Oh, the crazies kick in when I’m tired. I cry, I laugh, and I just want to go to bed but then I’m so tired I can’t sleep. It’s an endless cycle of un-organization and running as close to psychosis as sanely possible. Welcome to Mom Start, the tales of a mommy review blogger. We can all co-exist in this insane world.
And a Personal post is always just a day or two behind.
