Wow! So I left the blogging world about 4 months ago because I was at the end of my pregnancy, huge and exhausted. In hindsight, I should have kept up with it so I could have something cool to remember that experience of carrying two babies. In reality, I went old skool and kept a journal for my boys. It is something I have done for each of my children. I also have a baby book for them, but with each pregnancy, one of the first things I would do is go buy a journal to write in for the next nine months, so they can know what it was life was like before they got here. Now that I have four kids, two of which are twins, I’ve been asked to restart my blog again. And, I want to thank all of you who have reached out to me to encourage me to do so. I have been wanting to, but also wanting to get my family in a routine, and steal sleep whenever I can, it’s been in the back of my mind but not on top of my priority list. Now that the boys are 7 weeks old, I am getting antsy to do something for me to keep my mind engaged and active, and so the blogging begins!
I am 35 years old, and I have gaps in my resume. I’m not looking to go back to work right away, but I enjoy working, so I’m looking for something innovative, interesting and challenging. I also feel ancient when I look at job postings for cool companies and positions, and the knowledge of social media/ on-line community is a necessity. One of them requested I send them a video of myself as to why I want to work for that company, so my husband brought me home a Flip camera. I just learned how to utilize Facebook, which I still have a ways to go. I bought an iPhone and an iPad, so I am constantly in contact with the internet. I started my blog, and now I am on twitter! Still learning the ropes of Twitter, and thank god for a few good friends who have kept up with all of this and are guiding me along the way. One girlfriend described twitter as an on-line cocktail party. You decide which parties you want to attend, who you want at your party, what to wear…I thought that was a good analogy. My other girlfriend emailed me her version of the “Idiot’s Guide to Twitter”. I have a little researching and catching up to do. But what I love is how this all keeps me busy and feeling like I am accomplishing something other than drop off, pick up, dishes and diapers.
I want to apologize in advance as I’m a little rusty and just want to get started. I am also sleep deprived and have trouble remembering the words I want to use (can anyone recommend a good on-line thesaurus??), and how to write a sentence so it is interesting to read. My blogs will get better, they’ll be more relevant, and timely. Promise. Just wanted to get started again and let you know I have not fallen off the face of the Earth, and that I am back, and more excited than ever to write!
