I am pleased to invite Michelle for New to Mom to hang out here on Acting Balanced this fine Saturday! I recommend grabbing a cup of coffee and putting your feet up to check out more about Michelle and her blog... then popping over to visit her site and those of her favorite blogs!
My blog is New to Mom. I started writing it when my son was a baby and I was trying to figure out this mom thing. I also was reading lots of blogs and thought I could write one. As someone who is a mother, SO and an employee, I wanted something of my own. Kind of a selfish reason I guess but it's the truth.
2. How long have you been blogging and what do you love about it?
I have been blogging for three years. I love having my own space to let out some feelings and ideas that maybe I felt like I couldn't share otherwise. I love the community and the support that I've received from fellow bloggers and the conferences are fun. :)
3. Who is the person or group behind the blog?
My name is Michelle. I'm 31 years old and from NW Iowa. My SO have been together for 10 years and we have an almost 5 year old son. So, I'm out numbered in this house. I work full-time outside the home and I love it.
4. What hobbies/interests do you have?
My hobbies tend to change. But for the past year, I've been doing the Project Life scrapbooking and learning photography through different blogs.
5. If you could invite 4 people (real or fictional, living or dead) to a dinner party, who would you invite and what would you serve?
Top of the list would be Justin Timberlake because I've been ooggling him since 1999. My other choices would Jimmy Fallon, Tina Fey and Kristin Wiig. I'd have to keep the food simple because I wouldn't be able to take my eyes off Justin and the rest would be making my stomach hurt from all the laughing.
6. I can’t live without ... my family. In my younger years, I didn't think I wanted a family. Now that I have one, I can't imagine my life without them.
7. Something people would be surprised to know about me is…I've been to at least 15 concerts in my life.
8. Three of my favorite blogs to visit are:
Baby Rabies, www.babyrabies.com
Harpers Happenings, www.harpershappenings.com and
Click It Up a Notch, www.clickitupanotch.com
9. Three of my favorite posts on my blog are (Include urls) :
