It might have started out slow but I’m making progress

Back in August I announced that I was going to start writing a weekly column for the Detroit News Michigan Moms Blog. I wrote a few posts for them, about parenting mostly, but they were not well received by the public. Apparently my Detroit readers are much more critical and outspoken than those that read my personal blog. I needed to get a thicker skin, but unfortunately, depression overtook my ability to turn the other cheek and my writing came to a screeching halt.

Thankfully, my editor is very kind and agreed to let me continue blogging on their parent panel. This time I am more focused. I decided to focus less on my parenting, and more on myself for the first couple of return posts, describing my experience with PMDD and how I am coping with overcoming this obstacle. The second installment of that journey was posted today.

Also, I came up with an idea to write a specific column on Tuesdays called Tuesday’s Tips. Tomorrow will be my second installment of this endeavor, focusing on meal planning tools and tips.

Feel free to visit me there today and leave a comment or two. It would be nice to not be called a “Nazi Mom” or  “An overprotective parent” for a change.

Happy Monday!

One thought on “It might have started out slow but I’m making progress

  1. Aw, I’m sorry to hear that your first foray didn’t quite pan out, I hope that this time things go much better and I do wish people wouldn’t be quite so ‘nasty’ (vitriolic also comes to mind). All the best! 🙂
