Glitter Tales, Mommyhood, Simply Mommy Chronicles

End of an Era

Well, here we are. The last Glitter Tales of the year and I’m so proud that I allowed myself to take on this project. It held me accountable to post on my blog at least once a week and to think outside of the box. There were probably only 3 or 4 times when I was a little late in posting (last week’s post was posted and promoted this Monday – thanks holidays), but other than that I can proudly say that I’ve posted Glitter Tales 52 times this year!

So where do we go from here? How do you follow up a full year of committed writing each and every week?

I won’t lie, I’ve been brainstorming for the last month on what I wanted to do from here. Where do I take this blog and this continuous prompt to keep writing. Between running ideas by my husband and trusted friends, I think I’ve finally got an idea of what is going to replace Glitter Tales in 2017.

As we’ve already brought to light, David and I are expecting our first baby together and I kept it pretty much under wraps for the first 3 months. I’ve also learned that there isn’t really a safe place to talk about all of my feelings without the unsolicited advice from multiple people who think my priorities aren’t straight because the first three items I’ve purchased for this tiny human are all for her nursery.

Starting Thursday, January 5 I’m going to get real honest and upfront about pregnancy so far. I’ll revisit when I first found out, the search for the perfect OBGYN, the slight annoyance I have with nearly everyone who tells me something that they absolutely believe I should know, and much more. I’m basically going to UnicornMom….

This avenue will give me a way to share my own experience thus far, on my own platform and easily just stay away from the constant annoyance of people who just have started to irritate me with all of their unsolicited opinions. Here, I’ll delete a comment and move along. It’s just that simple.

So I hope you’ll stick around for some real sweet tea on pregnancy and the people who will make you want to roll your eyes at every word they say to you, because it’s definitely not all rainbows and glitter for everyone.
