Thanks for visiting my blog! I hope you feel more enlightened or encouraged after reading what I have to say. Maybe you disagree with some of the points that I talk about (I can be very opinionated sometimes) but that is okay. I love to hear other viewpoints and welcome all comments on my blog as long as you keep it civil (and don’t sound spammy). If there are any blog topics you would like for me to talk about, just head over to my contact page and shoot me an email- your opinions are actually important, and I would love to hear from you.
If you are new to my blog, I suggest checking out the most popular posts other than those lists on the left sidebar. Another great read is my list of 101 Things To Do Before Preparing For A Pregnancy.
Now how did this blog get started and why? Two years ago I would not have thought I will end up writing a blog. Actually, I would not have thought I will be a mommy. I have always been good at writing but I never wanted to be a writer. After my surprise pregnancy, I decided to take an undetermined length of time off from work to care for my precious baby. During this time my husband convinced me to do a little writing about my experiences, and this writing adventure turned into My Experience, an unplanned blog which I am now cultivating with my husband’s encouragement.
Why I Have a Blog
When I first found out I was pregnant, I panicked and just had to read everything I could about pregnancy and babies, including many blogs. I have a tendency to research whatever I want to know until I find out all I can about that subject, and the subject of pregnancy was no different. As a scientist, I enjoy solving problems and I took my pregnancy as a fun scientific learning experience.
A Blog is Born
After my baby was born, I continued to learn and attain as much knowledge about babies as I could. Since I was staying home with my baby, my husband thought it would be good for me to write a hobby blog about all that I learn. This was just for fun at first and when people started to enjoy what I was writing it turned into the blog.
Who Am I
So, who is this opinionated person and why should I believe anything I read in her blog? Well, you don’t have to believe it all or any of it, but I try to put trustworthy references in my posts, especially those representing any facts that I have gleaned. Because knowledge is power, right?
I am a 26 year old Mommy to a precious baby girl, and wife to a very wise husband who is also a computer geek. He is my jack-of-all-trades, Army medic, problem solver that I have come to depend upon during this crazy year with our baby. Together we are an invincible force out to educate everyone on what we have learned from our experiences with baby.
As a new mother, I wanted to know everything I could about parenting but it was difficult to sift through the web for real experiences and motherly knowledge on parenting. I hoped to make My Blog an informative site for all those who are expecting or are parents themselves. Whenever I find good resources for us parents, I try to share them so we can all benefit.
Before I was an author of this awesome blog (tooting my own horn, sorry), I was a Medical Laboratory Scientist who loved to talk about diseases and disorders a little too much. I am very passionate about scientific research and I think this helps me to have a different viewpoint from other Mommy and Baby Blogs.
I hope you enjoy and contribute!
