What if no one comes?

After mulling over the idea again and again, I decided that today is the day to start a "Real" mommy blog. You know, something to supplement the uber-protected place where I post pictures of our darling babe, which if you're here today, is probably the path through which came.

Mommy Blogs like Baby Rabies and PhDinParenting have been real sanity savers in this thing called motherhood. In a strange, slightly egotistical way, I feel a responsibility to share my insights publicly on the off chance that they help someone else.

I have to admit that there is a certain amount of social anxiety that goes along with creating a blog. It's kind of like throwing yourself a birthday party. You're excited and you've been thinking about it for a while, but there are these nagging doubts, "What if no one comes?" "What if people don't enjoy themselves?" Unlike an poorly attended, boring birthday party, which would be horribly disappointing and difficult for the guests to escape, this blog will serve as catharsis no matter who reads or doesn't read it.

I don't pretend to be the next dooce or BearShapedSphere (excuse the shout out, but she's the only pro-blogger that I know IRL and I'm pretty proud of her!) But, I think I have some things to say that might be interesting to someone out there. So, if it's not you, thank you for visiting. I'll keep posting pics on the other blog!


  1. I am excited you started this blog and I look forward to reading it.

  2. I'm excited, too! I zoomed right over after our photo session (and snack, why did I pass up on those cookies? I was hungry!)

    And I'm not really pro. Just obsessed!

  3. Thanks guys! I'm excited to start "thinking out loud".
