Yeah, I sometimes cannot believe I’m going to be a mom either! These past three months have been absolutely crazy and this was the reason I’ve been kinda MIA in blog land. The first trimester is no joke and morning sickness isn’t even the half. Between the crazy waves of fatigue,the hormonal emotional roller coaster, and my body expanding in ways I didn’t think were humanly possible, keeping up with the blog has been a bit of a challenge. No matter how much reading you do, there isn’t anything that can prepare you for all the physical and mental changes this exciting time in your life. There were times where I didn’t feel like blogging, every word looking like poo poo on the screen. When I wanted to do a beauty post, my face would conveniently break out, taking weeks to clear up. Then I thought, “How in the world can I achieve the goals that I set for this blog while working full time and being a mom?” Sure there are plenty of mommy bloggers who have awesome blogs and do a great job everyday but the question was: Could I do it? Those were just some of things I wrestled with and in the end I’ve come to the conclusion that I just don’t know and I’m not going to stress about it. Three years ago I didn’t think I could even send a tweet let alone blog but when I took it day by day, I learned so much and accomplished more than I hoped for. So with juggling motherhood and blogging, I’m going to take it day by day and it will work itself out!
As for the blog now, I don’t plan on turning this into a mommy blog though my outfit posts will be affected (for obvious reasons!). Slowly but surely I’m trying to get my head back into the blogging game because I still love it and miss you guys terribly! I also need it more than ever to distract me from the constant worrying I’ve been doing lately. I will say though that from now until the munchkin comes (and probably after!) I am completely open to having guest bloggers come on over and share their beauty and fashion with you guys. So if you’re a blogger and want to be a guest, please feel free to email me at Margaret (at) getfiercestyle (dot) com. I welcome with you with open arms ( and a growing belly!)
