UBP12!- April 14, 2012

Okay readers, I’m in a “bloggy mood.”  You know, I’m just ready to meet new bloggers and find some new favorites to read.  I was psyched to learn about this year’s Ultimate Blog Party.  I’m in!   (I’m a little behind.  Forgive my tardiness on this post.  I know most of you had these done Friday.)

If you’re new here, I’m Amy and I’ve been blogging since 2010 when I got pregnant.  I knew a lot of women had pregnancy blogs so I worried I wasn’t really pregnant in the 21st century if I didn’t chronical every bout of nausea and fetal kick on the Internet.  I kid.  I kid.  I started it really so I would remember everything about my first pregnancy and child birth.  I had no idea this would turn from a hobby to a passion and allow me to meet some awesome people!  It’s become my daughter’s baby book in a way because God knows I’ll never get around to making one of those.

Me, our 1-year-old daughter Charlotte, and my husband Greyson.

A little about me… I’m owning the fact that I’m 30 years old.  (Dirty 30!  Woop! Woop!)  I just started a new career in public relations after eight years in television news.  I was a reporter for the last four and ready for a change.  Here’s the story.  I may be the luckiest woman in history with my 4 1/2 hour childbirth.  Of course that was after more agonizing over baby names than has ever been necessary.  

So let’s get the party started bloggers!  You’ll find me on Twitter @SomebodysParent and this party gave me an excuse to do something I had been putting off.  I made a Facebook page for the blog.  I would appreciate a “like” so I don’t look like a friendless/fanless sap.  Thanks!  Let me know if you’re going to BlogHer 12 this year.  I’m PSYCHED to be going with her, her, her and her.

Happy blogging!

      Pitocin! I know, haters be hatin’ but I was past my due date and ready to have that baby. By the way, I just commented on your blog but I’m afraid I did it in my husband’s Google account. Ha! Sorry! Welcome Katie! Nice to meet you!

    Stopping by from the party and I’m so glad I found your blog! I started mine while I was pregnant too! And I also graduated with a degree in television news! BUT I haven’t taken the big step and apply to any stations because I don’t want it to interfere with being a mommy. It’s hard work! I’m about to read your story now! I’m excited to start following along :)

      Hey Josie! Ah! Another TV news gal! Awesome! So nice to meet you! Yeah, I quit partly because it interrupted motherhood. Would you consider finding a news job when your kids get older?
