At the first of the year I set some goals for myself, not necessarily resolutions, but goals. One of those goals is to grow Blogging With Bee. I’m new to the blogging world and I know that I have a lot to learn but I’m willing to put in the work. That includes attending workshops, meeting and learning from other bloggers. So imagine how excited I was to learn that there was a blog in Memphis that was written by Memphis moms. Not only did I discover the Memphis Moms Blog but I also learned that they were also looking for new contributors. This is just what I needed to expand not only my personal blog but to also truly engage with other like-minded Memphis moms. Being a contributor to Memphis Mom Blog was not a given. I had to fill out a questionnaire AND ace the interview. We are talking serious business.
I knew that I my unique view of motherhood and MY Memphis would be an asset to the Memphis Moms Blog.
After a week or so I received an email from lead Mom Lindsay to set up an interview. I had the option of a phone interview or face to face. I wanted face to face so that I could make sure that my amazing personality came shining through (kidding, not kidding). I knew that things were off to a good start when Starbucks was our choice location for the “interview”. This was like having home court advantage. I also could tell from the email that Lindsay was going to be someone that I would like.
Yep, I was right!! We talked like girlfriends catching up. It did not feel like an interview at all. I knew that if selected this would be an enjoyable experience.
I’m proud to say that YES I am one of several new contributors to the Memphis Moms Blog. Not only will you have the pleasure, yes I said pleasure, of meeting me here every Thursday but you will also be able to catch me on www.MemphisMomsBlog.com
I’m really excited about this new opportunity and I hope that you will join me Memphis Moms Blog, ESPECIALLY if you are a Memphis Mom.
What steps have you taken to reach your 2016 goals?
