That’s me, Ginger, over there. And my little man giving me a brief moment of stillness.
I started RambleRamble in 2008 because I wanted a place for myself–a place to explore my own thoughts and ideas, a place to figure out who I am and who I want to be.
In 2009, I had that little dude, and the focus of this blog shifted a bit. I became a…mommy blogger. I write a lot about my experiences of being a mom, and how that fits into the whole who am I and who do I want to be thing.
What I found when I started writing about my experiences of being a mom is that the internet enabled me to do something I wasn’t good at in real life–building a community. They say it takes a village to raise a child. Well, my village is online and I’ve met them through this blog. I now think of this place as my own personal little girls night out, where I get to hang with great friends (readers), ask for advice, and share experiences and stories with each other. Pull up a chair and join the conversations and discussions!
Of course, I’m more than just a mom. I work full time in marketing for a book publisher. I’m married to an emerging artist, who is a stay at home dad. I’m a bookworm, and a tv junkie, and a movie addict. I’m addicted to the internet.
The car crash that is the intersection of all those things is what I explore in this blog. The desire to find myself after allowing myself to become invisible. The experiences of being a mom, working or otherwise. The drive to have a creative outlet of my own. The need to not just be the artist’s wife, or just the mommy, or just the worker drone, but how to make all of those things shine through the ME that exists…somewhere.
