My New Blog and My First Award!

I'mentioned before that I used to write for a magazine. Well, one of my secret desires was to start my own magazine. I always thought some of the stuff we were writing was crap and that if I had my own magazine, it would be awesome.

Fast forward 10 years and I am married with a child and no time to even think about a project so big. Not to mention the cost involved. So when I discovered blogging I thought it might be a good opportunity to test the waters. Except now that I'm a mom all I write about is baby stuff. Enter Lollipop.

Kelly from Nello Design did a fabulous job helping me put it together and creating a kickass page! I want Lollipop to be a place where moms can come and rant about this all consuming job. I don't know about you but I felt duped when I became a mom, like "wait a minute, this isn't what I signed up for."

Before I go on, let me just say that I wouldn't change my life for a second. I love my daughter with all of my heart. She is my life. But, I had a hard time adjusting and I'm only now starting to get used to my new role as mommy.

I want Lollipop to be a place to hide, to come and complain about the day to day, the stuff that no one wants to hear about. I also want it to be an interactive experience where you can contribute. It'll be a mix of information and conversation!

So go on over and check it out. Let me know what you think. I'm open to suggestions and ideas. And just remember that it's brand new so all the kinks still have to be worked out.

Oh before I forget, I got my first bloggy award too!!! The lovely ladies over at Our Smart Baby gave me the honor of being their Top Toddler Mom Blog! I can't believe it! Check out the cute button I get.






Don't forget to check out Lollipop!
