Posts Tagged ‘blogging’

For years, as I’ve introduced myself as a blogger and shared my website the response is almost always the same. A wide-eyed stare, a slight chuckle, followed by the inevitable question: “How many kids do you have?”

“Just two,” I reply.

Two is plenty, believe me. In some countries it is a lot. I guess here in the states it’s about average. Compare it to my church congregation and we’re severely under quota.

It’s not that I didn’t think the name of my blog through when I chose it all those years ago. I remember the moment quite vividly. I was lying in my apartment, yearning for a new project. An escape from the mundane cycle of work, home, sleep. A feeling came over me that I needed an outlet, and I needed to act on that now.

I had been thinking about having children someday, and the name “Baby Making Machine” came to mind. Without much more thought, I created a Blogspot account and started writing.

Nearly 9 years later, I haven’t stopped.

In the very first line of my very first blog post I quote a talk by a leader of the LDS church. “There is no tomorrow to remember if we don’t do something today.”

For some reason, I interpreted that as a reason to start a baby blog years before having a baby.

As I reflect on those words today I’m stuck with chills at how this journey has come full circle.

I’m laughing because back then I was struggling with cooking more, eating better and exercising… Not much has changed in that regard. But my heart has grown tenfold.

And now I’m crying. Crying because for the first time in more than 8 years I just re-read the talk that inspired this blog, and it speaks to the very essence of it’s core.

“I believe that among the greatest lessons we are to learn in this short sojourn upon the earth are lessons that help us distinguish between what is important and what is not. I plead with you not to let those most important things pass you by as you plan for that illusive and nonexistent future when you will have time to do all that you want to do. Instead, find joy in the journey—now.”

Find joy in the journey. Cherish every day.

 

The Rebrand

January 1st last year, on a whim (most of my decisions seem to be made this way) I decided I might have another 365 project in me. I did one with my daughter when she was a toddler, and one documenting my son’s first year. I was trying to think of hashtags I could use. I’d already decided I wanted to slow down work-wise, and express more gratitude. My word of the year was “Cherish”. A quick search revealed no one had snagged what I thought to be a quite clever hashtag… #Cherish365.

I used it for a week, and received some kind responses. Something told me to check the domain and see what came up.

Nothing.

A quick godaddy search revealed it was available. I couldn’t believe it. I bought the domain, and forwarded it to BabyMakingMachine.com until I could think of a way to get my instagram feed to populate there, or something else clever like that.

A week later I turned 30. At my dream board birthday party I flipped through a friend’s scrapbook cards. I was stunned to see the word “Cherish”.

I pulled it out and set it aside, along with the numbers 3, 6, and 5.

It was meant to be a reminder to cherish every day. But that hashtag, that phrase, stuck in my mind. I saw it daily, next to my desk. It started back at me and silently drew me in.

Vision Boards: How to host a vision board party and a tutorial for how to make a vision board to help all of your dreams come true! What a great way to ring in a 30th birthday!

“Maybe one day I’ll rebrand to Cherish 365,” I told a few friends. The statement was never met with the enthusiastic response I had imagined, so I let the idea go.

Eight years was a long time as the Baby Making Machine. Maybe it was a bad idea to try to start over, and change it. And not only that, this blog has become a full-time job and business for my family. I didn’t want to mess that up.

I re-worked my taglines to make my name make sense. “Making Memories” “Make a Difference”, all in line with my mission and the feeling I want to convey, but it never felt quite right.

See, the thing is… The tagline wasn’t the problem. It was the name.

For months I toyed with the idea of creating a Facebook group for my blog community to come together and discuss photography, making videos, and silly memories with our kids. I dreamt of a podcast where I’d share personal stories with a token of advice at the end. Every time I got stuck at what to call it.

On another whim, earlier this month, I decided to dive into creating content for YouTube. I was hitting a major writers block with my blog and I needed to jump into something entirely new. I needed to challenge myself. Really push myself. So I started a daily vlog. Yes, DAILY.

This personal challenge has been so difficult, but it’s truly opened my eyes to see things differently. Then one night, while editing another video, it hit me.

It’s time to say goodbye to Baby Making Machine.

And everything is going  to be ok.

There was absolutely no question what the name of my blog would become. It had been staring me in my face for the last year.

Cherish 365

Another quote from the talk that inspired the start of it all stuck out to me as I re-read just now. It speaks to the exact place I am.

“If you are still in the process of raising children, be aware that the tiny fingerprints that show up on almost every newly cleaned surface, the toys scattered about the house, the piles and piles of laundry to be tackled will disappear all too soon and that you will—to your surprise—miss them profoundly.”

A line I likely glossed over eight years ago for lack of understanding now brings me to tears.

There may be more babies in our future. There may not. Or there may be children who come into our home by other means. Regardless, there was no longer a need to be tethered to a name that–I can see now–had clearly been holding me back.

While I am the curator, I feel this blog has been lead by a force much stronger than me. I have truly cherished this journey and while I’m ending one chapter and beginning another, I can’t help but feel this story is just getting started.

 

What’s Next?

As far as technicalities go, all of my old posts and archives are still here. Here’s I’ll still share the same kinds of stories with the same message and passion, its just accompanied by new look and a new name.

Months ago I did a reader survey and I was blown away by so many of you. So talented and interested in all sorts of things. From sewing to photography, travel and beyond. Because of you, I’ve just started the Facebook Group I’ve been dreaming of. Please join us over at #Cherish365. I envision it being a place where we can chat photography and video tips, as well as just talk about marriage, our favorite books, podcasts, and reality TV shows. It’s been a one-way street for a long time and I’d really love to get to know you more, as well as for you all to get to know each other.

As if everything incredible is happening all at once.–I didn’t plan it this way, but I feel extremely blessed. Tomorrow, I’m leaving on my first trip abroad, as a part of a tour group sponsored by a nonprofit. I’m one of five bloggers (one of two from the United States) traveling to Israel as a part of a Vibe Israel Mom Bloggers tour.

I don’t mean to just drop this bomb on you then bounce out of hear for a week, but the timing worked out that way. I was initially planning to wait until April 1st to launch this new site but when my awesome designer said she could get it done now, something told me to just do it.

I’m still planning to upload a daily vlog while there, and I’m hoping to share a lot on my Instagram stories. Perhaps every couple of days I’ll post a quick microblog here too.

I’ll be back to my regularly scheduled posts soon, and just to keep your mouth watering, I’ll let you in on something in the works. To celebrate this re-band, I’ll be giving away an L-series Canon lens.  So wait for me ok? And tell your friends! Maybe now it won’t be as embarrassing to be spotted reading my blog or liking my fanpage. I’ll be doing a Facebook Live video over there around lunchtime to discuss this, so please pop in and say hi!

I’ve always had a bit of an impulsive streak inside me. I can’t help but jump head first into new things, look back and ask questions later.

Exactly two weeks ago I decided to start a vlog. A video blog for those of you who don’t know. I felt like I needed a pickmeup. Something new and exciting to try. A new challenge to commence. I knew if I set a goal to do one once or twice a week I’d procrastinate and quickly fall off. I had to go big or go home. So I decided to start a DAILY vlog for the month of March.

What I’m loving about it so far is the rawness and spontaneity. I never really know what is going to come out of my mouth, or my kids’ mouth, and it’s capturing a lot of the REAL here and now. I take photos and write about our days here on my blog, but some of the day-to-day things have been feeling too boring to document.

The silly random thoughts and moments that no longer make the cut on my blog seems to be finding a place in the vlog. I am enjoying that.

So I don’t know if you enjoy watching vlogs (I’ll admit, it takes a special person I think, because I can’t always sit through 15 minutes of someone else’s life) but if you do, check ours out. We’re doing daily videos through March then I’ll reevaluate what I’m going to do after that. We’ll see how it goes. I’m not sure how they’ll come into play here on my blog, maybe I’ll share a couple favorites once a week, or maybe I’ll keep it completely separate. Let me know if you have an opinion.

Ok, so when I started this thing, it was just in time for me to go support my best bloggy friend at the We All Grow Latina Bloggers conference. Vanessa from De Su Mama is an incredible mother, photographer, writer and friend. She was honored as a Storyteller at this fabulous conference. She presented a powerful story on stage about her journey to discovering, and falling in love with the country her family immigrated from.

Keep checking back on her blog for her story which should be up soon! I was so incredibly proud of her.

Vanessa knows I’m a huge Disney fan and she was so thoughtful to invite me to experience this with her. While there we also got to have a special Disney Princess experience, go to an early screening of the new Beauty and the Beast (my review is here) and tour the Walt Disney Studios lot. We even bumped into Bob Iger, CEO of the Walt Disney Company! I have two or three vlogs about the conference, I’ll share a couple below.

Vanessa and I, and parts of our family have been on about a half a dozen little adventures together with another coming up this summer. She listens to and supports my impulsiveness and talks me of the ledge when I’ve gone too far. She’s an amazing woman and I’m so lucky to call her my friend.


Since my last post I’ve been out of words and full of tears. Happy tears because of the overwhelming amount of people who understand or want to understand. Sad tears because things haven’t gotten better. Not yet. But these sort of things take time.

So where do we go from here?

Collaborations are in the works. My cry for unity was met with a loud response from others wanting to help bridge a divide between law enforcement families and Black Lives Matter supporters. It’s a great start and we are going to do something. What exactly? I don’t know yet, but when this news cycle is over and gone know that we’ll still be working to make a difference.

We shouldn’t have to live with this fear.

Meanwhile, something awesomely crazy that’s happened over the last couple of months. I’ve had a renewed sense of clarity. So much clarity and so many answers to questions I’ve been praying about.

A producer from a religious television network reached out to me a few months back about presenting on a motivational speaking show. I was honored but completely caught off guard. Why me? What do I have to offer that could possibly inspire others?

After several conversations and lots of prayer I had a very clear message nailed down, something I was passionate about and could talk about at length, something I didn’t realize other’s struggled with: Compassion and positivity.

That opportunity didn’t wind up panning out but I can’t help but feel like that experience didn’t happen by chance. Even though the show didn’t happen, taking that time to hash out my passions and emotions on these topics, and discussing them with friends has me realize this is something I should explore more.

I joke about my extreme sense of optimism all of the time. I call myself a “hopelessly optimistic” but maybe it’s something we all need more of. Maybe it’s something I need to study and talk about.

I dismiss the fact that I try to find a middle ground in every argument as being a part of my time spent as a journalist, but maybe it’s just in my nature to strive for peace.

Bunmi Laditan is the woman behind Honest Toddler. She’s amazing and I’ve loved her from afar for years. Something she said in a recent Instagram post spoke to my heart:

“I want promise you this: I’m not going to hate you. I don’t care what color you are, how you vote, or what your occupation is. I’m not going to hate you. Hatred is not my destiny. It’s not my birthright. It’s not my portion. You can say bad things about me, hate me, even kill me, and I won’t hate you. Not because of who you are, but because of who I am.”

Because of who I am.

This is who I am.

Where do we go from here: Motherhood, parenting natural hair

I spend so much time introducing my kids to new topics and subjects. I’m constantly trying to see what may spark an interest or passion inside them. (It’s a huge reason I’m so excited to be diving into homeschooling.) But who knew I’d still be discovering these things about myself at 30 (well, actually many extraordinary people discover their life’s calling in their 30s and beyond).

There’s a picture hanging in our playroom–I bought it on a whim during one of my expensive visits to Hobby Lobby. It’s a canvas that says “Someday you will change the world.” As a mantra not only for my children, but our whole family… Or anyone else who sees it and feels inspired. My husband jokingly looks at it and says “For the better I hope…” Yes! For the better. Most definitely for the better! Let’s change the world for the better.

I’m a hopeless optimist but I don’t consider that a bad thing. It allows me to dream bigger dreams and believe they are possible. I want that for my children, for my friends, for you.

I’ve reorganized my blog to reflect this realization. Up at the top, instead of a dozen different ways to document family life, I’ve organized it down to a photography and video category. All of that lives under the Leave a Legacy section where I am excited to continue to share those tips and my photo series.

The other sections are as their names describe–meant to inspire action. To make a difference, whether in our children’s lives or our communities. Love the world through travel, nature, food, culture and study. Cherish the moments and milestones with our families. And leave a legacy our families will be proud of.

My blog has been through a LOT of changes in its eight year existence. From my journey towards motherhood to beginning motherhood, and now that I’m getting a grasp on my new role and duty as a woman raising two children who I hope will grow up to change the world… It seemed fitting I refocus my blog to aline with this mission I’m being so strongly pulled to.

So I hope you’ll join me as I continue to make memories with my babies but also work to make a difference with them, for them, for all of us.

Do you ever hear someone speak, meet someone who inspires you, read a good book or watch a documentary that just makes you want to jump into action? You just can’t wait to change your life/start something new/ pick up a new hobby.

That’s basically me every other week.

Mom 2.0 Summit recap

My husband is used to my random epiphanies by now. When I watch Oprah, have a really good Sunday school lesson, or watch something like Cowspiracy on Netflix I come out ready to save the world and turn vegan.

The most recent source: Mom 2.0. A blogging conference I attended last week at the Ritz Carlton in Dana Point, California.

mom-2.0-summit-2016-8

I haven’t traveled to a blog conference in years, YEARS people. After having a second child leaving them both plagued me with the worst kind of mom guilt. But this year I went for it. I packed my bags and flew halfway across the country to meet people I’ve admired and connected with online for months, years even.

It was amazing.

First of all, there were so many people that I met 5-6 years ago at my first blogging conference who still remembered me. I mean dude, some these people have exploded into [bloggy] stardom and are like “sup Jenn?” and I’m like “who me?!” (I really wish I came up with a cool pen name that wasn’t so common).

Mom 2.0 Summit recap

Then there were all kinds of sessions that made me feel all kinds of ways. Some made me go “Oh, I totally know what I’m doing, ok, yea, I’m legit!” and others made me go “Ok, I’ve been doing this all wrong.”

Mom 2.0 Summit recap

I even taught my own session with my girl LaShawn from Everyday Eyecandy. It was a lesson on visual storytelling with photos and videos. The room was packed and people seemed to enjoy it. Definitely a win in my book.

Mom 2.0 Summit recap

I left the conference with a full soul and a million ideas.–Telling myself I need to redesign my blog, start a podcast, make an e-course, organize a writer’s retreat, become a motivational speaker, hire a Facebook sorcerous, fly to Trinidad to find my roots, write a book, and learn the wobble.

Mom 2.0 Summit recap

It was a bit of inspirational overdose, but I loved it, I needed it.

First things first, I need to decompress and write a list of priorities. As I come down from the motivational high hopefully those things most important for my business will come to focus in the forefront.

Mom 2.0 Summit recap

Mom 2.0 Summit recap

I actually won’t have much time to come down from this high as I’ve climbed right back on a plane to head to the Disney Social Media Moms Conference. Yea, the one I wasn’t invited to last year, or any year every before! They must have realized what they were missing cause I got a golden ticket this year baby!

Remember the aforementioned mom guilt? Well, it gets worse. Lil’ J has already missed too much school for our other TWO Disney trips in the last 4 months, so she’s staying behind. I’m bringing my little sister instead, making it a big girl’s trip and for the first time ever giving myself a chance to ride Disney World roller coasters, stay out extra late, have less frequent potty breaks, meltdowns and whatnot. I’m so sad to not be bringing my kiddos but so excited to see Disney through a new lens (aaaaand I may or may not already have another quick mommy/daughter trip planned for October).

I was trying really hard to keep it a secret from Lil’ J but she’s so smart. I guess she put all the pieces together. She cried when I told her I was going out of town again but didn’t bat an eye when she questioned if I was going to Disney World. She even asked God to bless that I’d have fun at Disney World in her prayers. Talk about a SWEET girl (ok I’m not gonna lie, she also prayed that I’d bring her a present back).

Telling her I’m bringing her favorite aunt/idol with me on this trip would just not be smart, so I left out that detail. I’m sure that would send her over the edge, but I’m glad she knows at least part of the truth, and is ok with it.

Mom 2.0 Summit recap

I’m sure once we land the guilt will wear off and excitement will set in. I’m eager to get pumped up with another serving of motivation, this time with an extra dose of Disney Magic. Who knows what kind of epiphanies I’ll come home with this time. Hopefully nothing too outrageous. I’m not sure my sweet husband can take too many more of my ideas.

Lately before I sit down to write I find myself asking “What do people want me to write about?”

I dive back into my reader survey responses to see the most requested topics. I get some ideas but something’s holding me back.

What do I feel like writing about? But what if people don’t like it? I can’t decide, and so I don’t write.

Later I’m picking up my daughter from school. She runs to the car beaming and shouts as soon as she climbs in “I’M THE FIRST MATE!” It’s the class “star of the week.” I gave her a high five and cheered her on as she told me more about her duties. I would have realized she was given the title had I throughly read her weekend folder but that’s neither here no there.

She opened her backpack and pulled out a poster-sized sheet of paper she would decorate and fill in blanks all about her. I knew she’d have a hay day since she adores any art task.

She looked it over as we drove and said “Mommy… What if nobody likes it?”

“What do you mean baby?”

“I mean, what if my class doesn’t like how I decorate it?”

“Oh, everyone will love it! You’re great at art!”

“No, but I mean, what if they DON’T?” She persisted.

“Well, you make something that you like, and work your best on it, then if they don’t like it, you’ll still be proud of it,” I told her. “It won’t really matter what they think.”

A mommy and me lesson on rejection

It wasn’t until I sat down to attempt another blog post and the doubting thoughts started to creep in again when I stopped and laughed at myself.

How can I give my 5-year-old the best, most honest advice about dealing with potential rejection yet not own it myself?

As wise mothers how much advice to we dish out to our kids on a daily basis? If your child asks as many questions as my daughter then you’re probably giving a lot! But how often do we use our own advice?

I think it’s time I start to take my own advice. Not just with blogging, but in life. Fear of asking for help because I may be rejected. Fear of trying something new because I may be bad at it. Whether you’re 5 or 65,  we can’t let fear of rejection hold us back from our potential.

So, this wasn’t what I was planning on writing today. I mean, something more pinterest-worthy would have been nice. But I wrote it anyway, and I’m feeling good about it, and I’m not afraid.

 

 

~At the time of this blog post, Lil’ J is 5 years 9 months old.~

We’re taking a break from the regularly scheduled rambling about my life to talk about blogging. Sorta. I’m coming up on 8 years of blogging here at BabyMakingMachine.com and I don’t think I’ve ever done a reader survey. I mean, I’ve done casual questions here and there on Facebook and whatnot, but nothing formal. How selfish of me?

Well, today that’s all changing. I’ve created a survey so I could learn more about you, what you like to read about and want more of, and what you are sick of seeing!

BMM-reader-survey

Wondering where What I’m Making Monday went? Sick of pictures of my kids? Want me to finally take up cooking and actually add something to my “making food fun” section? Want more Disney tips? Want LESS Disney posts? Now’s your chance to speak up. No need to worry about hurting my feelings, it’s totally anonymous!

I’ll admit, I went a little crazy and kept adding questions but it’s not long, and it’s multiple choice. I’ll even offer a little incentive! If you complete the survey come back here and leave a comment letting me know you filled it out, you’ll be entered to win a $25 Amazon gift card (or Target if that’s your thing). I’ll give everyone a week to fill it out before the drawing.

This is all on the honor code since I don’t ask for your email address or anything, so I’m trusting you awesome people to tell the truth!

Thank you so much in advance! I’m excited to hear from you!

Over the last seven years I’ve written about my baby making machine being off, switched on, back off, and on again. Now I have no idea if it’s off for good, or if there’s one more good run in me. I’m about 50/50 split right now. … But more on that later.

For the last several of months I’ve been thinking a lot about my blog, where it started, and where it’s going. My pregnancy journey has been a HUGE part of this experience, and though it’s not the main focus now, it still plays a part. So do my experiences as a wife and mother, career-woman and semi-domestic wannabe person.

One theme that’s remained consistent through all of this has been my desire to document my journey creatively so that I can look back on it with my family and enjoy it for years to come.

“Isn’t it funny how day by day nothing changes but when you look back, everything is different?”

That quote by C. S. Lewis. perfectly states a big part as to why I do this. And hopefully, in the process it gives you inspiration for making your own memories last.

I’ve made some upgrades around here. For one, you’ll notice my navigation menu got a facelift. Now it’s way easier to locate certain posts or topics within my blog by selecting from the main categories. Featured are the 5 main focuses of my blog, and underneath I break it down into more specific topics within each category.

Making Beautiful Memories are my personal journals from TTC-contemplation to pregnancy, he says/ she says debates, and my favorite motherhood stories.

Making Strong Roots is where I share stories pertaining to our multiracial family, traditions and religion.

Making Moments Last is where I give you tips for photography, home videos, and journaling.

The Making a Cherished Legacy section has inspiration for documenting your lives creatively.

And Making Magical Memories has all of the fun lifestyle topics from Disney to DIY.

Any questions?

Oh, and one last thing. Notice that little symbol at the end of my new blog header? I asked a half a dozen people to confirm I wasn’t the only person who still knew what a movie reel was. When my 18-year-old sister passed the test I figured we were good to go.

This means I plan to bring a lot more videos to this space. I’ve already started doing this the last few months and I plan to keep them coming.

Last week I made a video to quickly share what I’m all about, and what you’ll get from me here and on my YouTube Channel. My husband even cooperated and makes an appearance!

I’m telling you, as much as I love pictures, I love video more. You can’t display them around your house like you can with photos. But nothing brings you back to a memory like a video of that moment. I want YOU to make videos. You won’t regret it.

I’ve been video recording and editing since high school, and professionally doing it since college. Now I want to share what I know with you.

It’s ok if you don’t have a video camera. I’ll show you how you can make short movies on your phone too. (Though I may have to get my hands on an Android to be fair to my non-iPhone users.) And other tips and prompts to get you going.

I’m planning to start off with a new video about what’s in my camera bag, and what lenses I use for certain situations. Then I’ll move on to a tripod demo, or my recommendations for movie editing. Of course there will still be our silly and special family videos along the way.

I’d love to hear topics you’d like to learn about. Let me know in the comments or send me an email. You can also subscribe to my youtube channel. It’s free and you’ll be the first to know when I share something new.

Whether you’re here for the stories, the lessons, or because you have nothing better to do, thank you for reading! I hope you enjoy the improvements.

What do you think of the new look? What’s something you hope to read or learn more about?

I was fiddling through my FaceBook page the other day when I realized how long I’ve been at this thing. It’s really incredible when I think about it. I started this blog nearly six years ago.

Blogging has changed SO much since I started. I had no idea there was a plethora of mom blogs when I began. I thought it was just a way for friends and random stumble-uponers to find my space.

Back then I was writing about my dreams to become a mother some day. Now I have two freaking kids. How in the world did that happen?

Two of the world's cutest kidsI’ve seen so many friends enter and leave the blogging realm in their own space, some still keep at it, and others still are just beginning. When I first started I had so much extra time to browse other blogs, comment, read my favorites daily, and post about 30 times a month myself. Now I think back to those days and laugh at all the dang free time I had on my hands.

I remember once having a feeling of boredom. I don’t remember what that feels like.

Occasionally I’ll stumble upon an old comment, or email, or message on facebook, and I’ll recognize a name of someone who is still around… After all these years!

Then there are others who are just discovering this little place I call my own, and they’ll send me a note. I try to reply to each and every one but if I’ve missed you please know I appreciate your words.

Some of you I know in real life, some of us chat on Twitter or facebook, others I probably haven’t a clue who you are but you know what? That’s ok!

I don’t say it enough, but thank you. THANK YOU for coming. Thank you for reading, my arguments with my husband. Thank you for listening to my confessions, for not throwing up when I showed you photos of my fugly cankles, and for leaving comments when you have the time. I love knowing when you’ve stopped by, and it really makes my day.

As I’ve mentioned recently, I am trying to evolve this space into being something more. Something helpful for you I hope. If you’ve been here longer than 30 seconds you know I’m no homemaker. I am terrible at cooking, and I can’t teach you how to make that outstanding Easter Bunny Poinsettia. But you also know I love taking too many pictures, videos, and asking a lot of questions. I can teach you what I know about preserving memories, making a history for your family, and making it extraordinary. It’s basically my new mission in life.

All that will be coming as soon as I learn how to champion my blog with a little butt in my face. But for now I just want to say thank you!

Thank you with a butt in my faceHave you been here long? Take a second and say hi!
