Clearly I don’t have enough time on my hands.
I decided to start a new blog. I know. Actually I’ve been thinking about this for awhile, thinking about what I want to do when the kids start school and ways in which I’d like to improve myself blogging-wise and writing-wise.
One of the ideas I had was that I wanted to write more book reviews. That at some point I would love to do it professionally in some capacity. For awhile I was reviewing books and products at Mommas Review and I gave it up when it all started to feel like an awful lot of work for no good reason.
So what makes this blog different? For starters, for the time being, my reviews are going to be of the things I’m already doing and loving – the books I’m reading, the tv shows I’m watching (like my Idol Thoughts posts – they’ll be over there now), CD’s I’m buying, movies I’m seeing and more. I’m not going to do a lot of product soliciting for the most part because I do still have a kid at home and my time is limited. Though I’m sure there will be exceptions.
But I think that if I want to take things to a higher level at some point, that I’m going to need a portfolio of sorts – a blog that I can point to and say, “I’m already doing this. I’ve got samples and a following.” Hopefully I’ll have a following. At the very least I’ll have writing samples and a way for people to gauge the kinds of reviews that interest me.
So the blog is called Things Momma Loves - I wanted the title to feel relevant to my Momma empire. I do have an empire, right?
You can go there for reviews of all the types of things I just described – books, tv shows, movies, music, maybe cellphone apps or Facebook games. Any of the things I’m digging and enjoying while the little miss naps or we’re out and about, basically. You can head over and check out some of my old reviews that I copied over and a new review of Adele’s album 21 – a Mothers Day present from the hubby.
