This is where I get all asky...

Friends? Readers? Lurkers?

I'm trying to make changes over here at JPJ.
It's a bit of a slow-going process because I'm not tech/blog savvy at all and therefore, I'm kinda wingin' it.

Here's what I've done so far:

Imported posts from an old blog. They're important to the journey I took during my pregnancy, which is the sole reason I originally started this adventure.

I created an "About Me"  page. Don't expect too much, it's a work-in-progress.

I created a contact page. You can email me, and follow me on Twitter! Yay!

I also put up a page leading you all to my poetry blog.  I you get a chance, go peruse it. I'm trying to get back into that style of catharsis again. Not everyone likes poetry and I get that, but who knows, you might find something that flips your skirt.

This blog started as a pregnancy/mommy diary. It was never really meant for eyes other than those in my inner-circle. Who would care anyway, right?

But it's definitely morphed into something more.

As such-
I'm trying to push myself to be a bit more honest and vulnerable in my writing, as I mentioned in this post.
and I want this blog to reach more people.

I've gotten several emails from  strangers about how certain posts of mine helped them, validated them, touched them. Blew me away.  Me?  My quirky blog helped you in some way?

If I can help someone? I want to. TRULY.

So do me a's a big one....

Read through my blog.  From the beginning.

Get to know me. And tell your friends/readers to do so as well.
If you come across a post that speaks to you or of someone in your life, pass it on!
Bring others on OVER.

Email me, comment, ask questions.

Let's connect.

I'm really trying to do something with this blog....

What EXACTLY that something is, I haven't got a clue yet.

BUT I do know-

I have things to say. Experiences to share. Even encouraging/helping one person is worth it.
It's kind of a corny thing to say, but it's true. Think about the written words that have helped you out. 
I definitely have mine! I just want to return the favor!


Read my little blog.
Tell others.
Pass it on!

DO IT.  Pretty Please? Ha!

You're on! I will read. From the beginning. I wish that I had done the pregnancy blog, both times, but I didn't. I spent my free time meticulously designing the perfect he hasn't slept in yet lol! I will read. Besides, you asked so nicely, I couldn't possibly ignore the request :D

HAHA. I think if I would've had a nursery to decorate, we may not even be having this conversation, so I completely understand! Thanks for reading!

Hi! I'm just starting out and feeling the same way. Kind of knowing what I want to do, but still unsure on how to morph the blog to follow that path. All this to say: I'm in. I'll start da capo. Have added you to my reader and am now following on Twitter! Looking forward to seeing how it unfolds :)

I thought I had read everything you had here, but if you have imported stuff from your old blog? I would love to read those posts.

And you know I am impressed with your poetry.

Your words are worth reading.
