I never thought I’d be one to have a “mom blog”. If I am being honest, the thought of being a mom who blogged as an occupation made my eyes roll. But then I became a mother unexpectedly and I found myself wanting to share.
I had friends, my daughter’s father, family, and a therapist. They were as supportive as they could be and yet I felt like it wasn’t enough.
Creating a blog provided a safe place.
Mom With No Plan is a space just for me. Writing has always been a way for me to express myself uninhibited. I write better than I speak. I am more of an extrovert writing than my typical introverted self.
Six months into this, I know that this blog has been good for my soul. I get to not only share my feelings and thoughts but provide information too. I don’t always get things right, but I know that within this blog I am authentic.
Motherhood is messy.
Through this blog, Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, and Ko-Fi I have got to speak with so many other mothers who enjoy what I write. I’ve learned with the creation of Mom With No Plan that I am not alone. That some days are better than others and it is completely ok.
The creation of Mom With No Plan has opened the door to developing a tribe of mothers, fathers, and parents who are sharing with me as much as I share with them.
I am humble, grateful, and touched by those who choose to read this. I am honored to continue to share my journey of motherhood with whoever is open and willing to read. Thank you all for allowing me to be good to my soul. Here’s to six months with more to come.
