My 2011 Blog Theme

I got an email from Jody Hedlund the other day. She was responding to a comment I had made on her blog about blogging themes and asked me (very nicely) why I wasn’t blogging about pregnancy and parenting and life as a Christian mama…since that’s what my books and life are all about right now.

I read her email and wondered the exact same thing. And then I wondered why I hadn’t thought of it first. I mean, my books are about Christian parenting. My life is as a Christian parent right now. So why am I spending some much time blogging about other things?

So, I called my agent Rachelle to discuss the change with her and she also agreed that it’s a great idea.

And with that, it’s final. Starting next week, I’m officially a Christian mama blogger. Complete with the cute kid pictures and fingers sticky from doing crafts.

Thanks to Jody and Rachelle. You two are amazing.

See you Tuesday!

    Gald you like Roaring Lions, Cracking Rocks. Thanks for the nice comment about it on Family Fountain. wb

  13. This is my first time to visit your blog, Erin, and I'm sooo impressed. What a bright, fun look.

    Jody is awesome! She's given me excellent advice in many areas. I've told her I wanna be more like her when I grow up. Of course, I'm being silly since I'm heaps older than she is, but even though I'm "mature," I learn tonz from her.

    Obviously, you're wise, too. You heeded her advice and have a wonderful new focus for your blog. I'm excited about your book. I plan to gift copies of it to young women I know when they start their families.

  14. I'll enjoy reading about your Mama adventures, Erin! I love your blog!!
