It’s not what you think…
I’m not throwing in the blogging towel or going on a long, exotic vacation, although I certainly wish that was the reason.
Sometimes a major event in your life — and especially one that involves your child’s health — makes you completely re-shuffle your priorities and focus on what’s truly important. If I didn’t have perspective before, I certainly do now.
I still plan to blog.
I love to write and I NEED to write, especially now.
However, I am in the process of figuring out HOW I want to write about this.
So far, this is what I know: I want my new off-shoot blog to still reflect Oh Boy Mom’s humor and occasional atypical angle on parenting. I also want my new blog to be a source of comfort, inspiration and comic relief to other parents who may be experiencing similar situations with their own children.
I always wondered if my blog had enough of a niche, and whether it was forever going to be overshadowed in the very saturated mom blog category.
As it turns out, sometimes you unintentionally stumble upon a niche for your blog. I now know that my new blog most definitely will have a clearly defined role out there in blog-land.
Please stay tuned for further details. I hope you will join me on this new journey and stick with me as Oh Boy Mom changes direction. I will make several announcements when my first post goes live so please keep your subscriptions active. The new blog will most likely appear right here using the same domain (ohboymom.com), but will have a different header and design, reflecting its new focus.
I sincerely appreciate your loyalty and patience while I make this transition.
