TMC welcomes Ericka, author of the blog Alabaster Cow. I actually found Ericka through TMC and I have to tell you this girl is hilarious! Every single time I visit her blog I laugh, smile or both. She is a straight shooter and tells you like it is. She’s an amazing blogger that mixes humor with some fantastic writing and she does it all on her own terms. Still not sure what “Alabaster Cow” means? Be sure to check out her blog to find out! Here is how Ericka describes her blog in her own words:
“When I first started Alabaster Cow I copy and pasted my bad poetry, published a couple of posts and sat back and waited for my million dollar book deal. I am still waiting.
Obviously, offering the trial and tribulations I had with cellulite (cottage cheese please) or my thoughts on infidelity (a major “boo” to that one) were getting me nowhere without a game plan so I quickly changed gears (and by quickly I mean took a good six months because I was really holding out for some sort of contract based on my enthusiastic use of the word “ennui” in several of my poems. Ha).
Because I smartened up and learned to connect with incredible bloggers like Heather who have insight and purpose for their work, I reestablished Alabaster Cow and created the blog it is today. So what will you find in my particular corner of the blogosphere? Here’s a quick sampling:
• Chihuahua feces. You can never have enough, apparently.
• Babies who act like monkeys.
• My mother and her bad news fridge.
• My father and his “jackassness.” I learned from the best.
• My husband and his pretty princess eyes.
• My behind that is now cellulite free. Thank you veganism!
• Not at all horrifying photos of me from the fifth grade.
• A lust love for gin.
• An update on my writing. No worries – I’ve banished the “ennui” for good.
I do get serious from time to time and share a little bit about my depression and a lot about my struggles with motherhood but all in all my blog is about seeing the positive side of things. And the gin. Always the gin. Shots anyone?”
