I’ve been writing for Work It, Mom! for over a year now, and I’ve seen the site go through a wonderful transformation, finding new voices and more voices to add all the time. It’s really a great resource for moms—and all parents—who work, and I’m pleased to be a part of it.
I originally pitched an idea to Nataly, the CEO of WIM, and she loved the idea and we looked at ways to make it work, make room for it, etc. The site was going a slightly different way at the time so she offered me a place there as a blogger writing about spiritual stuff, finding your peace, etc. After several months we changed the focus to include the wonderful voice of Karen Rani, who was going to be running a freaking MARATHON and wrote about her journey from unfit to fit and all the lifestyle changes, weight lost, etc on the way. It was awesome and I loved sharing the space with such a dynamic writer.
Now we’re changing again. Hey, things change! That’s life, isn’t it? Change and stuff? So now I’ve got the blog back on my own again (Karen’s gone off to other things, like, well, life), and we’re blowing the roof off of parenting myths and stupid ways people get caught up in the “shoulds” of parenting. Sound like fun? The first post is totally up; go have a look because we’re talking about drop-kicking nosy people and fun stuff like that.
