It’s one of THOSE DAYS. I and my baby are cranky, tired, funny-smelling, and just blaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah.
We need a pick me up. For her, that means some naked time on the changing table (I don’t ask why; if it works, it works) and for me, that means catching up on my two favorite blogs.
I enjoy writing as a hobby, and have recently decided I want to try on some different styles. I found these two brilliant blogs that I look to for wordy inspiration on how to get certain things out there, and do it with style. I want to share their magic far and wide, so here goes!
Blog #1: Confessions of a Mom Zombie
I love, love, love the writing style and voice of this blog. She takes irreverence, snark, honesty, and some chic geek, and shakes it like a martini. A martini that we all need. I’ll admit, I’m a little biased towards a fellow Firefly fan (Browncoats baby!!!), but personal prejudices aside, it’s well written and highly entertaining.
Blog #2: Alpha Mom
This blog has a section called Bounce Back that is totally devoted to getting your life (somewhat) back postpartum. Me likee. It’s a bit more…commercial, and the pop up ads can get annoying, but are worth wading through for the columns. Bonus for new moms- there’s literally a column written for everything I could think of, so I feel a little less crazy (just a little bit) knowing there’s a discussion board out there for everything ever.
Most importantly, both of these blogs are inviting me to step up my game. Blogging is one of the few ways I have right now to reach out. I’m likely a lonely, awkward teenager that way. ( will u be my bff? j/k! lol!!)
Ha! Just kidding! I barely have time to zip my fly, let alone revamp this site anytime soon. But someday. Someday…
