Could Somebody Burp My Blog?

7:32 a.m. OK ~ So, I’m already having an itty bitty issue with my new blog.  I feel like a young momma who after 8 months of being pregnant, has just brought her new born baby blog home from the hospital.

I am excited, nervous and completely undeniably unprepared!!!

I thought that just by reading the book: ‘Blog Birthing: What To Expect When Giving Birth To A Blog’

would make me an expert momma blogger.

Seemed simple enough.


Forgot every word I read.

9:47 a.m. Evidently, my baby blog is being temperamental. (Or is that just me?)

10:02 a.m. Panic sets in ~ baby doesn’t have all ten toes and fingers ~ gallery button, format, navigation menu, the list is endless!

10:57 a.m. Bargain with my childhood friend, Bea: “if you just show me how to post a picture, I’ll name my next baby after you.”

1:32 p.m. I thought I had all my diapers stacked in a row but I forgot how the links get linked, plugs get plugged … why that’s like milk for my lil baby blog. It’s crucial!

When this baby was delivered, I thought I’d be sipping mocha latte and popping M&M’s while carelessly posting away into the blogger sphere. Instead I’m sitting home alone feeling fat, sleep deprived and suffering from the new baby blogger blues.

2:03 p.m. Frantically email my very sweet, patient nice baby blog web designer. Can’t she come live at my house to raise this baby blog? I wouldn’t need her long, maybe 4, 5 not more than 6 months to get this baby up and running on it’s own two feet.

Seems reasonable enough.

2:13 p.m. Can’t find my own baby blog when I try to search it on google. What kind of momma blogger am I that I can’t even find my own baby? I’m unfit blogger ~ this baby is 23 hours old and is already giving me fits!

Maybe it has colic.

Maybe I’m the one with colic considering I’m the one doing all the boo hooing.

2:32 p.m. Apply Therma Care Powerful Pain Relief Patch to relieve scrunched muscles on back.

237 p.m.  Sit back and stare mindlessly out window. 8 months

ago, I was a young writer with a an unpublished novel, a dream and a very cheap purple lap top, what was I thinking? Every mother feels the heat when she thinks her lil blog baby won’t have any friends, followers, links (whatever those are) etc. What if he is a blog bust? A dork? A drain on society; one of those blogs that lingers around, maybe getting caught up in the wrong crowd, disappearing for months at a time… you’ve heard this sad story before.  It can be devastating to a momma blogger to have her baby blog turn into a dismal disgrace and won’t even be welcome at Thanksgiving dinner and for Christmas…well you can forget it!! This baby blog is such a flop, it gets rocks and lumps of coal in its ‘in box’ not presents of encouragement.

2:42 p.m. No more whining! (Me, not the baby.)

I am fully capable of raising a baby blog from birth.  I’ve raised babies before, I can certainly handle this baby as well.

3:03 p.m. Call from my daughter Izzy.  She wants to know why I haven’t picked her up from school as I am 38 minutes late.


These babies…. always wanting something…..

4:24 p.m. Bare with me and my baby blog, we’ll figure it ……eventually.
