MrsMuffinTop Interview on ThreadMB

Doing a personal interview has never been on my radar or on my list of goals.  So when I opened my email one sunny California morning a few months ago, my eyes bugged out of the sockets when I read that a website I’ve visited in the past was requesting one from me, MrsMuffinTop.   After the initial shock wore off, the self-doubt crept in.  My inner dialogue was saying things like, “Is this a prank?” “What could I possibly have to offer anyone else?” and “No really, MrsMuffintop, this must be a joke.”

Almost as if I was the subject of a college psychology textbook, I went through so many stages of emotions.  I finally came to acceptance, thanks in part to the awesome interviewer and founder of the site ThreadMB, Laura Wellington.  She was very understanding of a small mix-up (my fault), responsive, and very sincere in her mission.

When the interview finally went live on her site last month (April, 2016), I experienced a new stage of emotion: pride.  Getting featured on ThreadMB showcased my authenticity, and I never would have seen myself in such a positive way had it not been for Laura and her fantastic questions.  For example:

Q: What is the one piece of advice you would give to moms who may be interested in beginning a blog?

A: If I can give one piece of advice to someone considering starting a blog it is to “JUST GO FOR IT.” Nothing ventured, nothing gained.  There’s a quote by Anne Lamont that I adore, and try to live by – “Oh my God, what if you wake up some day, and you’re 65, or 75, and you never got your memoir or novel written; or you didn’t go swimming in warm pools and oceans all those years because your thighs were jiggly and you had a nice big comfortable tummy; or you were just so strung out on perfectionism and people-pleasing that you forgot to have a big juicy creative life, of imagination and radical silliness and staring off into space like when you were a kid? It’s going to break your heart. Don’t let this happen.”

Plus. being featured on the same day as the fantastic comedienne, Margaret Cho, was very exciting! MrsMuffinTop Interview on ThreadMB
