Today is my SITS Day and I am just the happiest girl in the blogosphere right now! I have waited so long for this special day and I couldn’t be more excited! I recently mentioned that I had a scheduled post ready to go live this morning about a really hot topic that would generate lots of discussion. Obviously, that post will have to wait until Wednesday because I officially received the email over the weekend that today would be my SITS Day. So let’s get this party started!!!
When I first began my blog SITS was the very first community I joined. I knew once I got to know Tiffany and Heather as well as their Mission it was certainly a group I wanted to belong to. If you are new to The Secret is in the Sauce be sure to go check out their site because they created a wonderful community to affiliate yourself and your blog with. In fact, some of my closest bloggy friends are those I found through SITS.
If you are already a faithful reader of Theta Mom you know how much I adore my followers so keep reading because I may just surprise you with something you don’t already know and for those of you who are new to Theta Mom, welcome! I am so happy you are here!
Many often think (before reading my blog) that my blog has some connection to a sorority. This actually couldn’t be farther from the truth. As I write in my About page, I explain that once I became a mother I defined myself as an Alpha Mom but quickly realized I was also a Beta Mom. I then recognized as mothers, we are all in this together and deep down there is part Alpha and part Beta in all of us – which makes us Theta Moms – The True, Authentic Moms. [The-T-A] We are authentic because we live authentic lives. Life isn’t perfect and neither are our kids. Coming to this revelation is truly when Theta Mom was born.
My Mission expresses that once I became pregnant for the first time I felt like there was a secret code among mothers that wasn’t totally offered or shared. Even the tons of books I read about pregnancy and “what to expect” that first year didn’t fully spell-it-out for me. I actually feel the same way about motherhood. Why didn’t anyone tell me the real deal about motherhood? Although I love my children more than anything in the world the reality of this “role” was never clearly defined for me. So, I decided to break that secret code or at least maybe the silence and began the dialogue about what it really means to be a Theta Mom.
I always had a passion for writing so partnering that with a vision of beginning the conversation with other moms about the role of motherhood is truly what inspired me to create Theta Mom. Along with my love for writing I also began this blog because I knew I wanted to connect with other women. I cannot even begin to tell you how many inspiring, creative and amazing women I have met since my blog’s inception. Through this platform I realized that I was indeed beginning a conversation that other mothers could relate to. I was creating a community all its own.
Based on my amazing blogging experience and growth thus far, I knew it was the perfect time to launch Theta Mom Community which was introduced to the blogging world a mere three weeks ago. We are over 200 members strong and we continue to grow. Theta Mom Community is a place that encourages social networking and fosters the support of bloggers through a space all its own. I would LOVE for you to check out TMC and all it has to offer and join us! Just click Theta Mom Community on the navigation bar or click here.
Having said that, whether you are a veteran blogger or just starting out, I thought I would share some of my favorite posts on blogging that are definitely worth a read:

Thanks again to The SITS girls for featuring my blog because I really feel like queen for a day! And I look forward to continuing the conversation and connecting with you because at the end of the day, isn’t that what this blogging thing is all about?
