I Am a Mother….and Then a Blogger!
I am beyond frustrated right now (to the point of tears). I had recently turned the comment moderator on because comments were coming through that were inappropriate (I’m afraid to say the word for fear I’ll get twice as many). As many of you know, especially those who follow my blog on a regular basis, this past week was extremely busy for my family and I. There was my 10 year wedding anniversary, Thanksgiving, my oldest son’s birthday, and many holiday and family related activities. I was quite busy and unable to focus on my blog as much as I would have liked to. I am getting back on track though.
There are 1100 comments waiting to be moderated, which I am actually approving while typing this post. I could have done them last night, but I felt it was more important to sit down with my family and eat dinner and talk to my husband about how his day went.
This is not “just” a blog. I HATE that statement. It makes me cringe, just like the phrase, “just a mom.” I put so much hard work and effort into this blog. However, let me make this very clear. I am a MOM…..and then a Blogger. It’s not the other way around. If my kids are sick, I take care of them instead of my blog. If it’s my sons birthday, I plan his party and make him feel special instead of approve comments. Most of my readers and PR reps I work with are quite understanding about this and I am thankful for it.
Thank you to those who are patient and understanding. I love my site and the companies I get the opportunity to work with. I know that you all work hard on your comments and I totally appreciate that. I enter other giveaways as well. I know it takes time and effort. It also takes time and effort on my part to find companies to work with or products to review, as well as to review the products, facilitate the giveaways, and be the contact person for the winner and the company.
Your patience and understanding is beyond appreciated. If it weren’t for you all, The Mommy-Files wouldn’t be where it is today.
Thanks for listening to me vent!
