A couple weeks ago, a momma on one of the neighborhood Facebook groups that I’m part of posted to share with us about a new blog that is getting ready to launch and that was looking for local moms who were interested in participating with the blog via a role as a monthly contributor.
This sounds awesome, I thought. I LOVE the idea of this blog, I thought. Hmmm…maybe I should check out this contributor thing, I thought.
That’s how this all began.
A quick little post on Facebook that left a momma who is desperately missing the blogging world intrigued. So, I clicked over to the link she had shared, read up on the details, and sent off an email before I could give it any more thought. Then I clicked over to their Facebook page and scrolled through the various posts that had been made so far about the women who were joining this project. Women I was completely and totally in awe of. For a moment, I felt foolish for having even sent in a request for consideration. Then, I shrugged it off and went back to life, mostly forgetting about the email that I’d sent. To my dismay, a few day laters my inbox held an email from one of the co-founders and editors. And the email didn’t say what I’d expected it would…thanks but no thanks.
Maybe Hubster was right when he told me that I was selling myself short as I explained to him that these other women are AMAZING. Maybe he knew what he was talking about when he declared to me “you are people, too…whatever that means.” Or maybe these women, these awesome, amazing women who are putting together this awesome, amazing group of women, are bordering on being completely insane. Frankly, I’m going with that last option. And only partly because it’s a real buzzkill to have to admit that Hubster was right. Okay, fine. It’s mostly because I don’t want to admit he was right. But it’s also a little because I’ve now had the opportunity to meet Annie, one of these awesome, amazing women, and I immediately liked her. Immediately, I felt like I’d known her forever. I wanted to be able to call her my friend. And that clearly means that she’s got to be at least a little as unbalanced as I am. (I’m only joking, Annie. Kind of. I seriously do adore you, though. For real.)
Whatever the reason, they liked me (they really liked me!). And I’m SO excited that they did. I’m honored to have the opportunity to lend my blogging voice to this amazing group of women. And I hope that you’ll be excited to follow along with all of us as we work to build the blog up to the awesome resource that we all know it can be. Head on over to the RMB Facebook page, hit like, and add the page to your Newsfeed and/or interest lists. Then join the excitement on the Reno Moms Blog in the coming days when it’s officially launched.
And stop back here in the next few days when I just might manage to get my act together and have a post put together that’s been rolling around in my brain for a few days.
