Day 70: Follow the Yellow Brick Road...

After talking to the Spouse, thinking it over, and getting a few little comments, I think I've decided how to proceed. I am going to work on two things, the first will be a memoir. That's what I've decided to call those little, random "me" posts that come up. I was feeling all guilty and torn about posting more of that because, you see, I didn't start this whole thing as a mommy blog and I don't want it to become a mommy blog. At the same time, I do have things that happen every day that make me laugh or give me pause that I would like to share sometimes. Then I came across the genre "memoir" and, for some reason, having a title for it (other than mommy blog) made me feel much better. So--project 1 will be memoir entries, and there will probably be more of them than the other. Project 2 will be a work of fiction that I'll be working on daily, offline. I will post chapters, and parts of chapters, here as I work on them and feel ready to launch them into the world.

So let it be written, so let it be done.

cool, I'm excited to see it. And I still don't get the negative stigma for mommy blogs. People won't read it if they don't like it, but since many people do, it must not be that bad.

Yay! I can't wait to see the direction you take... and how it plays out for you.

I think your blog should be whatever *you* want it to be... because, well, in the end, it belongs to y.o.u.

Either way, I'll keep reading :o)

Sounds like a good idea to me- I look forward to both. A thought- I don't see your past memoir pieces so much as a mommy blog but as real life entries and you just happen to be a mom to young children right now. Your comments on life when you hit menopause and other joys that come with "middle" age will be hilarious, I just know it. Denise
