Something new: Mama Memoirs Link Up

Here on my blog, I write about a variety of things, but one of the things I tend to write on the most, are my experiences and thoughts on Mothering. I know, that's nothing new, and it's not a unique topic to write about. There are 432493789 other Mommy bloggers out there and we all write about Motherhood. But that's what is relevant to my life right now. And that's what I love so much about this community, is how many people are willing to share their experiences. I really think we can all learn from each other, show compassion toward each other, and encourage one other. Oh and of course, complain with each other ;-)

So, I've been thinking of starting a super informal link-up called The Mama Memoirs. It would be a common ground, were we can link up our posts about Motherhood. There really won't be strict "rules". You won't be required to "follow" anyone, or write on any specific topic. Just write what's on your heart. Whether it be a triumph from the week, or a struggle you've been facing. Or maybe just something silly your kid did that you are dying to share! The only thing I ask is that if you are going to link up, please make sure your post is rated PG. Or PG-13 is fine, too. And the most important thing: While visiting other blogs via this link up, please be respectful of people's lives and opinions. No mommy wars, okay?? ;-)

I think this will be just the thing I need to make me sit down and hash out some of my mom guilt, or share a success that I've had. And mostly, it will be an opportunity for us Mothers to all connect and get to know each other.

Here are the details:

For the first little while we'll link up every other Thursday. I don't know about you, but I can't commit to writing every single week. But twice a month? I can do that. I think.

So come back here on Thursday, April 18th, and link up your Mama Memoir, k? And remember, it can be about ANYTHING revolving around Motherhood. There aren't any guidelines. I just want a place for us all to share our motherhood trials, triumphs and (mis)adventures!


And lastly, just for this week, if you're truly interested in participating in this bi-weekly link up, please add your general blog link here!! This is more for me, so that I can stalk you visit your blogs a little before next week :-)

This is a fun idea ... I always love meeting other moms out there. I know my blog is a lot about sewing, but it's probably 50/50 with my kids. So hopefully that's still ok :)

So glad you are hosting a link up. This will be a great encouragement for me to hit Publish on the posts I've started.

This is a great idea! As a new mom, I'm realizing the importance of linking up with other mama's out there. Sometimes we need a little encouragement from each other. So, thanks for starting this!!

I love this idea! I'm always looking for more blogs to reas that have a similar style. and you know there's nothing better than getting some high fives from fellow mamas.
