Welcome!

I have been blogging for over three years now, with no end in sight. One of the best parts about blogging is being part of a larger community - a community that includes some really terrific people - other bloggers who not only inspire you be a better writer, but who write stories worth reading, who comment on your blog posts, and who make you laugh. So far, all the bloggers I have gotten to know online and have had the opportunity to meet in real life have been just as terrific after the first 'hello' is said face-to-face.


Having said that - boy! Am I ever looking forward to going to BlogHer this year in New York City! There are tons of amazing people I am looking forward to meeting - including Heather from Theta Mom. Heather is an awesome blogger who writes it like it is - it's no wonder she is so loved! Today, I'm the Featured Blogger over at Theta Mom. So, if you're visiting me (hi!) from Theta Mom- welcome!


As a mom of two young boys, I write, most of the time, about parenting. And the day-to-day adventures that go along with being a mom. (I could write an entire book!) I write about tips for new moms, about my life before I became a mom, and how to travel with children while keeping your sanity. I blog a lot about shopping (I love to shop!) and about the crazy things that happen to me, like near-death experiences in Mystic Tanning booths. You could say I worry - a lot - and, of course, blog about it. I'm not very domestic - ironing scares me and I'm usually gently escorted out of the kitchen by my husband when I try to cook. I know, I shouldn't be complaining about that, right? I'm Canadian-Greek, and I'm passionate about so many things.


I just love to write about... life. The things I like, the things I don't like, the news stories that affect me, health care, the world, children, entertainment, and everything in between.

Blogging has taught me so much, and it has introduced me to a world of awesome people who share the same interest as me. Blogging is just... awesome! So thank you for being a part of it!

Congrats on your TMC feature! Just read your Mystic Tan post and I was laughing out loud. I got one once too and I freaked out as well! It was awful. I got the worst headache of my life from the fumes and I couldn't get rid of that spray tan smell for days. I would never do it again!

i admire anyone who has been able to maintain a blog for more than a few months. it's hard work. dang...it's tough keeping the messages up. sounds like you had an impressive career in a field that placed the kind of writing and creativity demands on a person--at least the TV/hollywood image of what working in the entertainment/news media life is like.

Lisa said...

I absolutely LOVE and admire the passion you have for blogging. You rock. xo
