If you follow me on Facebook you know that I have some exciting news to announce! No, I'm not pregnant... sorry y'all!
Anyways, as a blogger and a passionate writer I always love a good opportunity and I put all my effort into being chosen for them.
This seems to be the year of possibilities for me.
A couple of weeks ago I came across an opportunity staring me in the face... the local City Moms Blog I follow, Oklahoma City Moms Blog, was searching for a couple of new contributors for their blog. I immediately contacted them, followed their application process and crossed my fingers. I hoped I stood a good chance but I'm not one to get prematurely excited about things. In fact, I'm probably the most realistic person you'll meet. I didn't tell anyone other than my husband that I applied for it because there was no need to share no news.
Several days went by and I hadn't heard anything so I sent them an email just to check in. I figured no email by then meant I wasn't chosen. Well, they quickly responded letting me know that they would announce the chosen contributors soon as they had more applicants than expected. They ended up having 3 dozen local women apply! How awesome is that? Except that meant my chances of being chosen were lessened. There are so many talented women out there so I knew the competition was going to be tough.
Well, much to my surprise I received an email last night asking me to be a contributor! This is big time news y'all!
This is a wonderful group of local writers who have a variety of opinions, thoughts, ideas and unending talent. Who could pass up an amazing opportunity to collaborate and network with such lovely ladies and the community of local moms they reach? So of course I said YES! I am so excited and honored to be apart of the group and I look forward to sharing my experiences with you all as well. I hope you'll share in this excitement with me and keep an eye out for my posts there as well as here! This means nothing less here, I promise. I'll still be here but I'll be there as well.
