Can I do this? I CAN DO THIS!


Many experienced bloggers have been attending blogging conferences for years.  Sponsorship?  No problem.  They expertly blog about their experiences and jet set off to the next town to meet with their blogging friends.

Then there’s me.

Am I hiding?

Kind of.

With blogging you can be a voice without a face.

Sometimes it’s easier that way.

I want to change.  I don’t want to hide in the shadows of  my blog anymore.  I want to take the leap and show myself to the world.  I want to attend a blogging conference and make new friends.  I want to reach out to companies for sponsorship.  I want to represent their company in a professional and articulate way.  I want to be a visible blogger.

Yes, I picked this picture because it doesn’t show my thighs.  But who would purposely post a picture of their thighs?  Maybe a model, but not a North Dakota farm girl like me.

Sorry, back to my point.

I want to embrace my blog world.  I want to learn and grow not only as a blogger, but as a woman and mother.  I want to show my children that their mother was not afraid to be heard and seen.

I wrote this post in response to The Divine Miss Mommy‘s article about a P&G Media Event in Miami.  I have been feeling this way for some time and I am happy to finally step up to the plate, so to speak.  This assignment has helped me articulate my goals.  I enjoy using  many P&G products, but I would love to try CoverGirl’s LashBlast Fusion.  Mascara is something of a mystery to me and I would like to use it on a more regular basis.
