Now, I know what you are thinking. My blog is already pretty fabulous. But when you take away my good looks and pretty pink header what have you got? I am feeling the need to define and challange myself and this seemed like a good platform. So this is already day #3 of the challenge because most organized bloggers started on Monday. But I wanted to make a grand entrance, so here I am. So I will be cramming for my tests as I did over 20 years ago. Some things never change.
Challenge #1, Elevator Pitch
An elevator pitch is how you can define yourself and your job/goals to someone else in a short amount of time. Like in an elevator. Now the only elevators I usually ride in are in casinos. Not because of my gambling addiction but because the casinos are where the good movie theaters are located in Las Vegas. These elevators usually smell of smoke, shame, sadness and a one-night stand. I don't usually talk to anyone in these elevators and tell my kids to close their eyes and plug their nose. So I will try not to take the term "elevator" pitch too literally.
When I describe myself to others I usually say, "I am a mom." Being a mom comes with a set of given traits and habits that would immediately be understood by others, especially other moms. And I think the same goes for bloggers. So If I say, I am a mom and a blogger I think that would describe a lot. But now I need more definition. What is my blog about? Well it is about whatever I find funny or amusing that day. It can be about finding the humor in parenting, being a mom, a wife, a daughter, sister, friend, human being or creepy person at Target. So how do I make that sound exciting and make folks want to know more?
I am the mom of six who likes to find and write about the humor and every day insanity of being a woman and mom raising a family. And I hope to help other moms feel that their life is normal.
Okay, how boring is that?
I would say I don't want your opinion, but I guess I do. I am open to suggestions. But be kind or you will not be invited back.
