I promised you some exciting news so I figured it was time to deliver on that promise. For some of you who asked either myself or my mother if I was pregnant, this news is probably not going to be as exciting for you but for me personally, I am beyond ecstatic.
Drum roll, please……….
I am one of the newest contributors for the Raleigh Moms Blog!!
Being somewhat new to the blogging scene, I jumped at the chance to apply for the contributor position since the topics that are featured on the RMB fall in line with my personal blog: local businesses, parenting, fitness, and highlighting favorite products/activities. I was thrilled to be chosen from the Raleigh Moms Blog pool of applicants to be one of their monthly blog contributors. The RMB is part of a larger organization called the City Moms Blog Network, which includes over 80 mom sectors in different states including Florida, Tennessee, Kansas, Texas, and South Carolina. The Raleigh Moms Blog was founded in February 2015 by a fellow mom with an overall outlook of building community and sharing positivity and encouragement while showcasing all that Raleigh has to offer.
If you are local to Raleigh and have children you have likely heard of this blog and already follow them. Or maybe you have attended one of their events in the past couple of years. If you do not yet follow them, whether you have children or not, I highly suggest giving them a follow. I have been following them since before we had our son because (a) I knew someday we were planning on children so I enjoyed reading about all things parenting in preparation for it and (b) they have awesome suggestions for things going on in and around the Triangle area for adults and children.
I started this journey in June after my husband encouraged me to chase my “dream” of blogging. I have been overwhelmed by the support of my family, friends, and the community to help me along the way. From providing blogging topics and ideas to sharing and liking my posts; I am so grateful for all the love and encouragement! I cannot wait to see where this new opportunity and adventure takes me and my blog 🙂
Make sure to follow the RMB on Facebook and Instagram, and keep an eye out for my first post, Dining out with Toddlers, coming later in September. I will share the link once it is posted on their site!
So with that, I leave you with this photo which showcases how I felt when I got the good news!
