To those visiting for the Ultimate Blog Party, Welcome to Science Fiction Mommy! To those who read regularly, Welcome back! The Ultimate Blog Party is something I just discovered via my friend Sela, and just in time! It's a networking party for parenting bloggers, and a chance to win lots of prizes. Since one of my April goals is to network, this is perfect!
My name is Eileen, and I am a stay-at-home-mom to my wonderful son, who is almost 18 months old. I am also an aspiring writer of science fiction, so I imagine you can guess what I spend the majority of naptime doing! I try to balance parenting, writing, and all of the little things life requires of me, and I share my successes and failures here.
I started blogging in April of 2008 with a private blog (which I do not link to) to share my pregnancy and baby pictures with my family and close friends. I started this public blog in February of this year for several reasons: to keep myself motivated to stay in the writing game (when I have to tell people I didn't write, it becomes more embarrasing not to be creative,) to have a website where I can promote myself as a writer (all set and read to go once I eventually get some published credits!) and to network with others.
Life is wonderfully chaotic right now, because in addition to the usual entropy of life with a toddler, we are trying to sell our house--a process that our son is not fond of. We'll be remaining in Colorado, just moving a littler farther south.
