Finally Blogging About Something I Care About
I like to think of this as a promotion, but that might be a little optimistic on my part. I find that I'm feeling a little Benedict Cumberbatch in a Kim Kardashian world. The entertainment section includes Humor, Tech, Books, TV& Movies and all the Celebrity Mom stuff. So it's right up my alley—my moody, cobblestone-lined alley.
I still have so much to say about kids and parenting and I will keep saying it here on my blog. I'm really happy for a change in topic at Babble, though, because my kids are getting older and they read my blog and the stories I tell are less and less my stories and more and more their stories.
It's getting to where writing meaningfully about my kids is an invasion of their privacy and as they interact more and more with the world the stories/struggles I would normally share involve their friends, other parents, and teachers. It's not appropriate to be peddling it on Babble. Or here, probably. So that's that.
Even though I sort of joke about being bad at writing "clicky" things and acting like a stuffy old English teacher who thinks slide shows are for sell-outs, I am really trying to learn more about web content and clickability and snappy headlines. I even checked some books out about it from the library. Ahem. This tweed waistcoat is itchy.
The fact is, I just can't force myself write about Honor Alba. That doesn't mean I will never write about Honor Alba. I might. There's no way of knowing what my muse will tell me to do. It comes from God's mouth to my ear and I comply. I'm just a vessel. And this week my muse whispered (it's a whisper, but it's FORCEFUL), "Is Richard Simmons wearing pantyhose under those short-shorts?"
