Remember all the times over the past 2+ years I’ve whined and longed and written over and over about wanting to find a real writing gig? Something where I felt legit and like my words had a purpose? Remember this like 2 weeks ago?
I got hired to write full time at Babble’s Being Pregnant blog.
Wait, I lied. Tons of words.
Like seeing the email, thinking it was yet another rejection and reading through it briefly while telling myself it was ok. Then wondering why it was so long. Then rereading. Then sitting down to read it yet again and comprehend it.
Then screaming in a really high voice.
Then calling Kim and screaming at her while she screamed at me.
My poor child that sat next to me must have thought Mommy lost (more of) her marbles.
I am – thrilled. Stunned. Overwhelmed. Still trying to put it all together. What this means to me. To us. It’s so huge. It’s something I’ve worked so hard towards for these past 2 years and to have it happen – is just amazing. I am so excited to be a part of their team and to have a place to blog on things that don’t fit well on here anymore.
Or, let’s face it, I’m too chicken to write on here for fear of offending someone I love.
There? Meh. It’s a lot less personal. Let the haters roll. :p
So everyone is more than welcome to say, “I told you so!” because so, so many of you have. And thanks for the support and encouragement and never giving up on me even when I threw in the blogging towel.
