Those of you who have been following our journey for a while will know that I have a real passion for social media and social networking. If there’s a blog or a community of interest for me to join, you can be sure, I am there. Throughout our IF journey, I participated in all kinds of IF blogs and forums and was an active participant on Twitter, not to mention my Face Book activies.
For a while after Ava was born, I felt the need to hide and shy away from all these activities, mostly out of a need to protect myself from what was a times a rather chilly reception to our new situation and I also needed to find my new place, find my feet and I needed to make my transition to motherhood without the eyes of the entire online community on me.
But slowly over the past few months, I’ve really started to feel like I’ve come into my own as a mother and with that new found confidence I have found myself being drawn back into the online community. I took the first tentative steps by making my blog public once again and this morning, after an interesting discussion with my friend, Tanya yesterday, I reactivated my Twitter account!
I received the following BBM from Tanya yesterday morning:
“Hi! Quick Q, and no pressure, but would you be keen or able to do a radio interview with me on Wed at 3pm, in studio? I want to chat about the power of online to connect mom’s!”
Of course, I rather nervously, jumped at the opportunity! Any opportunity for self promotion right? And as I’ve said before, I have always felt that my IF journey was going to take me places and change the course of my life in someway and in some profound manner, still don’t know how, but I feel it, I just know it, and so I have this need to take every opportunity like this that comes my way, you just never know where they might lead.
So, please listen to Tanya and I at 15h00 (CAT) tomorrow on Chai FM, 101.9FM or on audio streaming at www.chaifm.com I am literally shitting myself I’m so nervous but you know me, I don’t let fear stand in my way. I just hope I don’t sound like a bumbling idiot or even worse, accidentally drop an F-bomb or some other equally embarrassing way of shoving my foot in my mouth while we’re on air!
