I find self promotion completely mortifying and I’m cringing already, so I’ll just pretend I don’t feel embarrassed about doing this and will resist the temptation to apologise profusely. Sorry, oh crap.
In the last six months I have been really privileged to appear in a number of online publications and blogs as guest writer.
I still can’t believe they said yes.
Included in the following are direct links to my articles, but also the opportunity to have a nosy round to see what else is on offer – trust me – there are many a humdinger I wish I had had the honour of writing myself!
Sometimes the comments can make me take a big deep breath and have a word with myself (and a large glass of wine) before I remind myself that I’m not always a terrible parent, person or in one comment ‘Exactly what’s wrong with America’. What an amazing opportunity to get candid feedback on a site that makes me cackle regularly. The Scary Mommy crew are a wicked bunch. I love the site, the articles and I’m so grateful for the inclusion.
Oh God, I am not cool – but that’s ok now
If it offends you that I don’t like strangers shouting in my toddler’s face, or indeed have less inclination to be embarrassed when my children kick off these days – don’t read this one
When the submissions editor asked if I would like to publish one of my blog posts it was a huge compliment and incidentally one of my favourite pieces.
The pieces I’ve shared with Mamalode are some of my favourites; definitely more of the sentimental side and some of these I still find hard to read. Not because they’re dreadful, well, they may be, but more because they are subjects so dear to my heart. I love Mamalode for its warmth and sincerity, there are so many lovely things posted on a daily basis inspiring parents to accept things they can’t change and embrace what’s wonderful about raising children.
This is about my wonderful husband and his amazing Mum and all his family, I can’t read this without big tears and loads of snot
For my little boy, who looks astounded whenever he hears mention of ‘life before’ I had him
What would I tell my husband to expect before we had our babies? If I knew what I know now… and because, Binner.
We’ve all had one of those days with our toddlers, yes? Hopefully it’s not just me. My beautiful, gloriously funny youngest has one hell of a temper. She must get it from her father (*cough)
One of my ABSOLUTE FAVOURITE sites with some really fantastic pieces (so much better than mine…). One of my blogs was syndicated on here to my great delight and eternal shame – if you read it you will know why. I’m still embarrassed!
Yvette and Big Trouble in Little Nappies was the first to give me a guest post and I am so grateful and honoured to appear on her amazing blog – she has the ability to make me laugh and cry all in the same post, you should definitely read her pieces.
Claire over on Life, Love and Dirty Dishes published my most embarrassing story (so far) on her blog and gave me the confidence to laugh it off (and then share with Blunt Moms…) I love Claire’s blog, we share so many of the same experiences (catastrophes)
Thank you so much for reading. I realise most of you are probably obliged to, in fear of intense interrogation from me on the school run or from either of my parents (thanks guys). I will continue to ramble a while longer.
