Blogger Shout-Outs: Lilac City Momma

Wednesday, December 15th, 2010 by by

Welcome to Week 3 of Blogger Shout-Outs!

I hope you all are enjoying the Shout-Outs to other blogs.  Please give me a response and let me know what you guys think of this!

This week I would like to introduce you to Hanan from Lilac City Momma.  Hanan found me through my own blog and that is how I starting reading hers.

What is your name and something silly about you.
Hi, I’m Hanan.

When I can’t sleep, sometimes I lay on my tummy with my butt in the air like a baby does =P

Tell us all about you and your family

I am a 24 year women who loves photography, baking, and arts & crafts. My husband and I have been married for a little over a year and a half, and have been together for almost 5 years. We have had our typical ups and downs. You know, the dating, three months later getting pregnant, and oh yeah, breaking up two weeks before we were to be married. A lot to go through for a couple of 19 year olds! But despite statistics, we made it through and are now raising our two beautiful girls Carleigh (3.21.07) and Kendall (12.15.09), and we hope to make another lil baybah soon!

I am not that smart, articulate blogger that I want to be. Not that I ever set out to be a fantabulous writer but now that I have been blogging a while I sometimes venture out to other blogs just to see what other mommy bloggers are talking about. Each time I do, I come back to my own blog and think bleh boring. I don’t write impressive posts or well worded thoughts about motherhood or life all that often. Sometimes I come up with a great topic I want to blog about but by the time I sit down and type for a while I am just irritated. I am not a verbose writer. I actually looked that word up so I could throw in a new vocabulary word into my post. But, even though I don’t think I write the most sophisticated sounding posts, I think I am down to earth. I think people can read my posts and I don’t come across as some over educated snob tossing around big words and writing super long sentences just to sound smarter.

I am who I am. I want to improve my blogging so that my posts are more interesting but I don’t want to be fake. I have met other bloggers in real life and some of them seem to be putting on a show, like they have been blogging for an audience for so long that they have forgotten how to be themselves. I don’t want to ever turn into that kind of blogger. I want to keep it real. I just want to work on (more…)
