I have exciting news!
A few months ago, my dear friend Gem sent me an email about a post she'd seen on Facebook. It was an all-call looking for first-time moms of color who intended to breastfeed with babies due in the Spring. I was like "Hey that's me!" They wanted moms to blog about their experiences with breastfeeding and they would pay them! In real money!
I emailed the lady and sent her the link to my blog, figuring I had nothing to lose. I was about to go on maternity leave and any extra money would be much appreciated. Amazingly enough, they chose me!!
Check it - my first post is up today! It's a lot harder than I thought it would be for two reasons: One, I can't curse! It's all family-friendly over there so I must keep it buttoned up for the kiddies. Waaay harder than it looks. Two, I have to keep it short and y'all know how I like to ramble. But what a fantastic opportunity! I'm so excited to have been chosen and my posts will go up once a week over there. If you're interested, go check it out! Of course, I'll still be here - you'll have to pry this blog from my cold dead fingers.
And this part should be fun: they want me to promote my posts and things on.....wait for it......
Facebook. And Twitter.
You KNOW how I feel about that nonsense. But, I'm getting paid so you best believe I'm going to update the hell out of my status and Tweet the shit out of my posts. Mmmm, eating my words tastes so good!

Oooh, I feel so dirty! Pimpin myself out like that - I feel like I'm walking on the wild side!
Okay but for real though - I'm a writer now. This is serious business. Stiff upper lip, profound musings, deep contemplation on the state of the universe, all that.
Plus I get to talk about my boobs.
