Mommygolightly started with boredom and lonely days of being a stay-at-home mom to my third-born (the first two were cats, and therefore, low maintenance). I think it would be wrong to call it a parenting blog or a mommy blog or even a blog about raising kids (at least in my case, I feel Re is raising me more than I, him).
I had no real ‘plan’ for it. I went where the blog took me, and I think it’s still more or less the case. I had written all there was to write about pregnancy in my book “I’m Pregnant, Not Terminally Ill, You Idiot!” ; the blog was a good place to start putting what didn’t go into the book.
Re is six now, and the blog is five, and it’s been five years of meeting some lovely people online and offline. I feel connected to each and every person who comments on the blog, writes to me, or reaches out in any way. I try and write back most of the time, but if I don’t, it may just be a case of mommy amnesia, so keep writing. Perhaps my cat got my keyboard. And while I am all for healthy discussions and points of view, if you intend to be mean, vicious, malicious or racist, I have just two words. Stay out
Mommygolightly has grown hugely in these five years, and I have learnt so much from it and from you, my readers. I will keep it going for as long as I can, and sometimes reach out to you to do so too.
I will be adding new sections soon, so if you wish to write/share ideas/contribute, do write to me on firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are an advertiser or a brand who wishes to collaborate, the email remains the same. But be warned that I only write about things I care about or feel connected to, so this is not exactly a marketplace.
And lastly, please do not reproduce any text or images in this blog without my permission. It’s not cool.
Enjoy the blog!
