For those of you who have been following my “What The Heck? Wednesday” series, I am sure you are probably asking yourself just where in the heck my post is this morning. After much consideration, I have decided to do a little bit of rearranging and change a few things over here at The Mommyologist, and the first thing that I did was to officially give “What The Heck? Wednesday” the boot!
Lately, I have found myself suffering from complete and total blog overload. Basically, The Mommyologist is finally starting to take off and grow and no matter how fast I run I just can’t seem to manage to keep up the pace. My blog is always a good two steps ahead of me, and if I don’t take action and try to catch up, then I’m bound to get left behind in the dust. And that is the absolute LAST thing that I want to happen!
One of the things that was most definitely slowing me down was trying to keep up with a weekly Meme. My “What The Heck? Wednesday” posts were a lot of fun to write, but it was really starting to get tough for me to come up with content for them each week. But the reason behind my lack of ideas for those posts is actually very positive. Truth be told, I just really don’t have very much in my life to complain or bitch about these days! I used the whole What The Heck? theme to sort of get stuff off my chest and vent a little, but right now I’m just so happy and content and blessed that I really can’t invent stuff to whine about each week!
And though I’m still not totally thrilled about the fact that Legos are trying to brainwash me and completely take over my life, if that is the biggest problem that I have, then I’m doing pretty damn well. I remember my Dad telling me many years ago that, “People really don’t want to hear about other people’s problems.” And you know what? He was RIGHT! My readers are not visiting my blog to hear me bitching and moaning and being a total Debbie Downer, and I think that once in a while my “What The Heck? Wednesday” posts came across that way, and kicking that meme to the curb was absolutely the right decision.
I want to stick with my whole philosophy that The Mommyologist should be a place where people can come and LAUGH. I want people to feel positive and inspired when they leave here. And I can think of no better place to start than with putting a huge emphasis on my whole Mom Sexy revolution.
Seriously…how cute is my new button? My blog design guru, Lauren at Restored316 Designs made it for me earlier this week, and I’m totally digging it. At Bloggy Boot Camp back in March, they told us to “pick one or two memes and stick with it.” Well, I’m officially picking Mom Sexy as my monthly meme for this blog. If you missed the details, you can click here for the scoop. I’m really hoping that bringing Mom Sexy back will inspire women to feel better about themselves inside and out. Make sure and mark your calendars for Monday, April 26th for my first official Mom Sexy meme and for your chance to be my Mom Sexy Blogger of the Month for May.
If I’m going to stick with the whole positive vibe on my blog, then there is one more big change that I’m going to have to make. As hard as it may be for me to hold back at times, I think I’m going to have to resist the urge to rip various celebrity moms to shreds when their bullshit filled stories appear on the cover of US Weekly. I think that I’m just going to put a little more faith in the idea that most moms hopefully know that the tales of perfection that they try and sell us are nothing but a complete and total pile of crap, and that if we all had nannies and personal trainers and personal chefs and hair and makeup artists, that we’d probably be featured on magazine covers too. (I’d SO be on one).
From now on, I will only feature celebrity moms in my posts if they are real and honest and somehow inspire the rest of us “regular moms” to be confident and happy in our lives. And if you are shaking your head right now because you don’t think that there are any genuine ladies out there in La-La land, then don’t miss my post about Kendra Wilkinson. Because she is the real deal. And she is totally Mom Sexy. Stories like hers are what my readers need to hear…and I’m keeping my fingers crossed that I’ll have more wonderful ladies like Kendra to write about in the future.
I am also working on a new series for The Mommyologist right now. I am not sure how soon it will debut because I still need to work out the details and figure out where the hell I’m going with it, but it’s something that I’m very excited about. It’s something that will feature REAL women, with REAL stories, and with REAL laughs. And I can’t wait.
The only thing that is certain in life is change. And the only way that you can grow is through change. Because CHANGE IS GOOD.
