TMC welcomes Tracy, author of the blog Sellabit Mum. She is one awesome blogger and one hell of a vlogger, too! She’s totally got her act together staying authentic with a touch of sarcasm – the perfect mix for a mom blog. She’s one of the most supportive tweeps I know so be sure to get to know her better! Here is how she describes herself and her blogging journey in her own words:
“My name is Tracy and I blog at Sellabit Mum. No worries as I am neither celibate nor British. I like to say I am just Midwestern and have a headache, but I do have three daughters to prove my “I am not celibate” point. Ahem. If you want to know how my unusual blog name came about – you can watch my vlog.
I have been blogging for over three years. I started my blog after my last miscarriage as a way to celebrate my then two beautiful daughters and to find joy again. Also blogging is much cheaper than counseling. I’ve always been a very sarcastic person and found that my blog brought out my funny again. I need to laugh at myself and also laugh at my kids, because oh my word kids do strange things.
One day I hope my kids will understand my brilliant sarcasm and not give me blank stares as they are my main audience and are a very tough crowd.
I came by motherhood quite by accident. I mean, I know how it physically happened (wink wink) but never planned it to happen. I was a Marketing Manager for a Fortune 100 company for fifteen years and lived and traveled all over the world and assumed that would be my life until retirement. And then one day I found myself married and pregnant and BOOM my world shifted. I quit my job when my second daughter was six months old – that was six years ago and I never looked back. I love being at home.
Also after four losses, I found myself pregnant and 40 with our third daughter. She will be two shortly – which makes me 33 if I do my math correctly – and she is the icing on the cake for us.
Besides blogging, motherhood, and of course gourmet cooking (cough), my husband and I own a small business and I am an independent rep for an incredibly fast growing children’s clothing company which feeds my passion for fashion.
I mainly write humor and love to self-depreciate, vlog off-key songs, and have fun, but I am also intensely into photography – so I tend to get serious when showing pictures of my kids and their emotions that come out in those shots. They speak to me and at times bring me to tears as I never knew how amazing motherhood could be.
I hope you will come over and say hi and laugh a bit or tell me how awesome my skin looks for my age. I am so excited to be here today. Thank you, Heather – you have such an incredible community!”
