A Change of Plans and An Announcement

I just want to add a little note… I am SO impressed with how we are doing with this fund raiser! My computer is in the shop so I only have time to blog late at night, early morning, or squeeze it in during my dinner breaks… Even such, we’ve had at least one donation EVERY DAY of this fund raiser, and we’ve already made 75% of our goal.

I can honestly say since starting this I’ve gone from moping to wanting to help a cause to being at peace with everything. I will say I lied about one thing though… I’m not sure I’ll do this every-other month I am not pregnant. This has been AMAZING but I’m no “Power Blogger” aka “Social Networking Queen” nor am I a mommy blogger reviewer. I’ve also had time to take a step back and realize everything will be ok, and I don’t think I’ll need this sort of thing to help cheer me up every-other month.

In another two weeks we will have done a wonderful thing, and I will have had a wonderful break from constantly thinking TTC. But I’ll also be ready to write and share again. My blog isn’t about getting free stuff (which by the way, I’m not getting any free stuff from this in case you were wondering 🙂 ), it’s about documenting my experiences. When I first started my blog I was stingy about things I’d write about… NOTHING unrelated to my baby-thoughts would be published… Even posts off topic were twisted in a way so that it was still related to my theme.

Now I’ve sorta gone off in the opposite direction… And while it’s totally ok because this has helped me, and has been for a WONDERFUL cause, I want to get to somewhere in the middle.

And this is not to dis my AWESOME sponsors at all. I’ve LOVED featuring their sites, and I’m SO grateful for their support, and for your support in joining me through this, but to think I’ll do this every-other month is a little much. Besides… It’s kind of taking away from the whole baby making point as I’m seeing I have less time for baby makin’ with all of this!

Perhaps if I hit a year, and/or I’m deemed infertile I’ll do another one of these 🙂

I’m also going to be SO busys the next month or so making all of the headbands and bandanas I’ve promisd those who donate $15 or more! I didn’t think there would be so many! I spent $50 at Hobby Lobby Saturday getting supplies and I STILL don’t think that’s going to be enough! it’s ok though. I origionally was going to donate headbands to the charity, now we can donate a lot more than that!

And another mini-announcement I wanted to make… I was approached by MomTV and asked if I would like to have a LIVE internet-streaming weekly show on their site! While I’m SO busy, and I don’t think I’d have time to do a show every week, I have decided I’ll do one every-other week.

We are still working out the details but I wanted to ask you what you thought, and if you’d watch. I’ll be on once a week for 30 minutes to an hour, on either Monday or Tuesday. Will you watch? And what time is good for you, cause I need to nail down a time. I’m thinking Tuesday morning sometime. Please let me know! Also, any ideas for a name? I need help!

I’m excited because I think I’ll be the first non-parent on the site… Or at least the first Future Mommy on MOM-TV! And I think I’ll learn a lot from the other moms on the “network” as well as bring a different flava to the site!

Like I said, I don’t have all of the details worked out yet. I know I’ll have guests on the show to talk about things I blog about like choosing an OB vs Midwife, fertility health, adoption, and of course TTC. Sometimes it’ll probably just be me yapping though, so I hope you’ll watch to keep me company (there’s a chat room so you can type to me and each other while you watch).

So I REALLY hope you’d like to tune in sometime, I’m really excited about it, and I think it’ll be something else to keep my mind off constant-baby makin’.

Like I said I have A LOT to tell you soon. My perspective right now seems to change from day to day (actually more like hours to hour) and I really can’t wait to get your opinions on some of the rants running around in my head.

That’s all for now! Back to the March of Dimes show!

Oh and remember, let me know if you’d watch, what time, any name ideas, and what you think! THANK YOU!

  1. Yippee!
    1st off, I miss your writing too. 2nd Congrats on the offer! I like the name you have….Future Mama, it might help draw people to your site that way too, not so many names to remember. 3rd I doubt you’ll have another one of these in a year, you’ll def. be preggo by then:)Now, quit reading this, and get back to headband and baby makin’!

  2. i have no idea for a name. why don’t you just keep it congruent with the blog name you already have? If it came on Tuesdays i would watch it in the morning after i drop my daughter off to preschool, so that is after 8:30isham i’d honestly have a better chance catching your show on monday instead of Tuesdays. i think it is a fun offer, just don’t over do yourself. you said you are super busy…so just don’t spread yourself to thin as tempting as it all is.

  3. The great thing about it being online is that even though I wouldnt be able to catch you at the posted time, I could totally watch that evening or so.

    So, yeah, I’d watch. I’ve poked around MomTV and think its an awesome show/site! I think it would be a great honor to get out there and talk some talk about TTC and such.


  4. Would definitely watch your cute self. Anytime. That is exciting, and I think you should go with Future Mama. And when that changes, make the name change then! Best of luck, that is fantastic stuff.

  5. Hi,
    Thank you so much for your comments on my Wifey Wednesday post and your compliments.

    I prayed for you today. Would you mind if I asked my church to pray with you at our prayer meeting next Wednesday about having a baby? I don’t have to give any details about you just an online friend.

    Congratulations on the MOMTV spot. Doors are opening my dear. Praise the Lord.

  6. I just want to say you are SO awesome to help out the March of Dimes like you are. We’re super grateful and can’t thank you enough. Good luck with your show, Future Momma!

  7. Good luck on your TTC journey!!!

    I’m really loving that you are doing such a fabulous job of supporting March of Dimes :o) And I can totally see how this isn’t something you would want to do all the time lol!

    As for blogging in general, I’m of the opinion that when people blog about their real lives, it’s far better than trying to blog only about one aspect. Then again, I am the WORST blogger ever lol!

  8. Brava chica! I would be sitting here on Tuesday mornings between 9 and 11am watching your show. So long as you give me detailed instructions on how to find and see you. I tried before awhile back on a different show and the effort was not fruitful at all! :o)

    My best, Lynn
