As a blogger and freelance writer, I am constantly trying to find a balance between writing quality pieces, and writing pieces that get the clicks. Sometimes, I find the perfect combination of the two, and things go crazy for a while. And then I realize I don’t know what the hell I’m doing, after all. […]
To the woman I was one year ago, Oh sweet, sad Mama. You are in the thick of it right now, and I know you can’t see a way out. It’s hard enough being the mom of a spirited two year old, but add on an unplanned pregnancy and having to put your own big […]
