Okay today I have decided is the beginning of my 12-step program to
I don’t know if I come across as being confident on my blog. Some days I wish I could read or see things as you do, but I can’t. Instead I worry that what I’m saying will be ‘disagreeable’ to some and quite often I find myself editing, and re-editing what I’ve written because I want to please and don’t want to cause conflict. I won’t talk about politics, religion or even reality TV for fear of upsetting someone. It all comes down to confidence. Something that deep down I don’t have.
I see other bloggers going out and getting what they want. They have no fear of approaching companies for reviews, giveaways and sponsorship. I wish I could be a lot more like them. I am not that person … yet. Instead I wait to be approached. I sit in the background.
So this week I’m doing 2 things I normally wouldn’t do EVER.
1. I put myself up for the Mother of All Bloggers contest at momlogic. Normally I wait and hope somebody will just nominate me for things like this. But, unlike most contests of this nature, I had to start the process by requesting nominations *gasp*. Oh and I deliberated on doing this for so long because I was scared nobody would nominate me that now there are only 3 days left. So pretty, pretty please, head on over to my page at momlogic and type “I nominate you for Mother of All Bloggers” in my comments section.
and now that I have put this out there I will stop obsessing over this and quit refreshing my homepage at momlogic and my email every 3 seconds hoping that a nomination pops up. I will shut down my computer … and obsess by looking at my Blackberry instead every 3 seconds from the backyard 🙂
2. I said I had two big fears I was going to conquer didn’t I. Oiy. So number 2 is that I am going to be attending the Mom It Forward Fundraiser event at the Hard Rock Hotel this Saturday night. I’ll be there. By myself. I don’t know a single person going. Think I’ll head straight to the bar. In my mind everyone else going knows everyone who will be there. Is that going to be just in my mind though. I’m scared. If by chance you are in the area and want to come down here is the link to the Facebook group for more information. There is still a chance I may back out at the last moment … you know I may have a last minute appointment with a bottle of vodka 😉
