I recently submitted, recycled, repurposed a blog post on Scary Mommy because go big or go home. I sent along the story about wanting to stab my teenage daughter with a fork, because, well she’s a teenage daughter. And that’s how I felt at the time. Several times.
They liked it and published it the day I left for our traditional no tech vacation. Where we have no wifi, not gadgets, and very little cell service except for the coveted third base of the softball field, where you can often find people sneaking peaks at iphones in order to keep their jobs and be able to return year after year after year.
So I didn’t know until I sneaked a peak by the light of the moon and the glow of my iphone that things were getting real over on Scary Mommy Facebook page (thousands of likes, thousands of shares and hundreds of supportive ME-TOO comments).
Being a mommy ain’t so scary when you don’t gotta go it alone. Thanks to Scary Mommy for letting me share the angst of raging hormones, and thanks to the readers who gave a resounding “me too” with their Facebook love.
Go ahead and see for yourself, here.
PS: Part of my writing goal is to submit, submit, submit. This goes to show, people don’t know you’re out there, until you put yourself out there. Thanks to Beyond Your Blog for giving me the tools and confidence to take a chance on yes.
