Just as I’ve been feeling a bit ‘down’ about my blogging journey, yesterday gave me reasons to smile.
Because I was in two places at the same time.
First, I did warned you that the team at World Moms Blog has graciously accepted me as one of their contributors, right? They published my first writing yesterday. Where I talked about motherhood from my point of views after it was being altered with different cultures and backgrounds.
A little about World Moms Blog from their About page:
Join us on a journey of motherhood around the globe! World Moms Blog came about from the idea of merging what it’s like to be a mother, writing, anthropology and all things international. It is written in English and is a volunteer effort.
As busy mothers we often find ourselves without the time to be jet-setting around the planet. So, we invite you to come travel the world with us, through our global writers. We will read about how women across the planet are mothering, how their lives are similar or different from ours, what’s on their minds and expand our horizons into corners of daily life around the world.
To be brutally honest, I was nervous about my writing. Worried that it might not be good enough. Go and see it for yourself and let me know what you think.
Then here comes The Parent Du Jour…
Maria from Bicultural Mama was kind enough to introduced me to Lisa Duggan, the brilliant mind behind this website. It was this post that Maria referred me to. Intrigued by the idea, Lisa and I soon got in contact with one another.
A little about The Parent Du Jour:
365 moms and dads, served fresh daily!
Our goal is to feature 365 moms and dads from around the world. We want to feature at least one parent from every country inthe world—195 at last count.
Moms, Dads, Grandparents, Guardians, Aunts and Uncles— all are welcome to participate
It doesn’t matter how young or old, seasoned or inexperienced, or whether a parent is single, married, civil-unioned, separated, widowed, divorced or re-married, or if their children are babies or completely grown, with children of their own. We consider anyone taking an active part in the raising of a child a candidate for this project. Grandparents, aunts, uncles—consider yourself invited.
Each day we’ll serve up a different parent telling us, in their own words, how they combine work, family, and life. Dads will be featured in our “A Dad a Day” series, moms in “Once Upon a Mom”.
The result? Well, you just have to check it out yourself. I am just so excited to be their first international mom – outside of Canada. If you are interested, please do get in touch with Lisa by their Twitter or Facebook, they are looking for more international parents.
It’s been an exciting day here at Tatter Scoops, that’s for sure.
