Here’s a little more about them:

Welcome to the Momplex

Maneuvering Motherhood

****

Name:
Sarah P

Blog Name:
Seraphim

How many kids do you have?
I have three children, my eldest is six and is known as Mr Large on my blog. My daughter is nearly five and she is known as Miss Medium and my youngest is nearly two and known as Mr Small.

What is your favorite thins about being a mom?
I could write you a really long list but I’ll condence it to this. The unconditional love it creates within me.

What is the hardest part about being a mom?
See above. Unconditional love is wonderful, but it can also be exhausting.

What is your blog about?
It’s largely about motherhood, juggling work and family, but for me a very important part is working with mothers who have lost their babies or their children. So often they get great support immediately afterwards, but then their story is gradually forgotten. I lost a sibling many years ago to SIDS. I’ve never forgotten him and it’s really important to me to honour these women and their babies. I’m working with my brother on creating beautiful images for these women and their families. I’ve only started this recently, and I’m not really sure where I’ll be taking it. I like the sense of unknown with this blog.

How did you start blogging?
I started blogging when I was trying to research about a friend’s infertility. I’d had some difficulties falling pregnant myself but knew nothing about what she was going through. I wanted to know more, so started researching and came across all these amazing blogs by all these amazing women. The trouble is, until we face a hurdle, we often take motherhood for granted, a given. And for so many women it’s not.

How long have you had your blog?
Oh gosh, over a year now. It’s undergone new looks frequently, thank in large part to Danielle. She keeps coming up with all these news looks and designs and I love them so much. Like me, my blog keeps evolving!

What are some tips for new bloggers?
When I started I distinctly remember saying, I didn’t know what the purpose of my blog was. You don’t have to have a purpose in mind. Just enjoy the process. Read other blogs and comment on them as well. That way people get to know you too. Join forums to discuss topics that you are interested in. I began at LFCA, a site that provides support for women struggling with infertility, miscarriage and pregnancy.

Your 3 favorite posts you’ve written?
The one I nominated for: Say it with flowers and Love’s Brother and one I wrote about a wedding I’m planning: The Wedding Spanner

Spread the love: 3 other blogs you love?
Apart from yours you mean? That’s really tough because if you saw my blogroll you’d realise I follow a lot of wonderful blogs. But, if you pinned me down and threatened me then I’d pick:
My friend Carly’s blog, she does wonderful work with her “Write their Names in the Sand”
Stacy’s Blog “He will carry me”
and because it is just so cheering to read, I love Kelly’s Korner. (I don’t think she even knows I exist, but it’s a really heartening blog to read)
