This blog was an accident.
It was late, and I was having one of those days. I was spinning around in my desk chair, staring at my giant to do list and feeling utterly uninspired to do any of it. I wanted something to work on – some creative project that was just for me.
Instead of doing something productive, I started Skyping my friend Sarah. Sarah’s a photographer, a snapchat aficionado, and a personal cheerleader for everyone she meets. She’s the one who suggested I start blogging again, and her positive attitude made me think that maybe she was right – maybe I would be good at it this time! In fact she got me so excited that I went and bought my domain name right then and there.
Then the call ended and I started to have a bit of a melt down.
what am I doing?? I don’t have time for this, I can’t do this, I’m not interesting enough for this.
Oh, and I’ve tried blogging before… it’s hard.
So there’s that.
It was a long night – there was a lot of freaking out. Sometimes I think I buy things that I think will help me live a certain type of life (it never works)… and I had just done that very thing with a damn domain name. At least when I buy too many lipsticks I can wear them to work!
I decided that I wasn’t going to move forward with it – that I would just forget about the whole thing and try not to dwell on it too much… but my mind kept wandering back the idea. I started thinking about what my aesthetic would be, and titles for blog posts wouldn’t stop popping into my head. So hey, I thought, why the hell not?
And thus, MOMPUNK was born – for real this time. I started making lists, coming up with a palette of colours, gathering photos for instagram and drafting posts… and now we’re here! I haven’t done as much prep as I wanted, but they say the hardest part of anything is the start, and I have a feeling that if I don’t just hit that publish button, nothing is ever going to go up on here.
SO, that unnecessarily long story was basically to say… hello! Welcome! This is MOMPUNK.
Here’s what you can expect to see here:
+ playlists of some great tunes
+ my favourite make up products
+ university talk
+ my sad attempts at DIY projects
+ tips for life (or something)
+ real talk about things like sex, feminism, and how hard it is to be an adult
+ just me, ranting, raving, rambling, and being the mess of a woman that I am
So, any tips on who to follow, what to post, or how to… y’know… be a blogger? Let me know!
see you tomorrow,
