My first post for Deep South Moms Blog, the sassy sister site of Silicon Valley Moms Blog network, is finally up.
Well, "finally" in that I finally wrote a post for them. I signed on to the site well before they launched, but became thoroughly distracted with our BlogHer The People's Party and Blog Nosh Magazine. When I showed up for the SVMB Group headshots shindig at Saks Fifth Avenue in San Francisco, some whispers hounded my tail along the lines of "Does she really write for us or is she crashing?"
I may steal movies, but I don't generally crash parties.
Hm, that would look good on my headstone. But I digress...
The post I wrote for them is "Resilience or Defiance" and it is something that has been on my mind every day for years. It would mean a lot to me if you would head over there, check it out, and if you feel compelled-- leave a comment. In fact, I worked my sassy ass off this weekend and have some free time today (seriously finally!), so I promise to visit and comment on every single one of the blogs that leave a comment on my first post over there. Something I should do more regularly over here, I am well aware. But still...
For all of your hard mouse clicking and keyboard tapping, here is a glimpse of the behind-the-scenes of my Deep South Moms post:
Do you love all of the Sonic cups in there? I was bribing my boys with Sprite and cups of cereal so that I could take the photos I needed to along the beach for the post. You can see the live oaks along the waterline in the reflection in the window.
Let's show those girls that I can pull my own weight on their fancy blog.
Sweet tea and pearls, my ass.
