Guest Post by Sillicone Valley Mommy!

Starting a blog is an exciting and scary process. Will they like me? Will anyone even care what I have to say? Well today I am starting my guest posting series with a brand new blog called Silicone Valley Mommy . Please take a moment to get to know her, visit her blog, like her Facebook page, follow her Twitter and even see what she pins. She’s witty, intelligent, fun and has impecable taste in friends and wine. We all know what it’s like to be the new kid on the blog block, let’s show her some love and support.

 

Without further ado…Meet Jennifer the Silicone Valley Mommy…

 

I Am Unwritten

I’m one of those girls who likes lots of different music. My iTunes collection is a crazy mix of it all – Top 40s, Reggae, Country, Rock, Oldies, Soul, Classical, Punk, etc. Mostly, I just looooove songs with a great beat. I’ll be the first one on the dance floor. I don’t care. I DEFINITELY don’t look as “cool” dancing as I used to, but don’t even try and stop me. I just love to close my eyes and nod my head like yeah…. move my hips like yeah…. I’m also not embarrassed to tell you that I can’t get enough Dirty Rap. Yep, I said it. Dirty, offensive, insulting rap. My husband looks at me in complete shock as I rattle off the words to songs like “Ain’t No Fun” by Snoop Dog. I know. I completely admit that the lyrics in that song are unbelievably offensive towards women. (Feminists, please skip the next sentence.) Still, I know the whole song word-for word, by heart and love to sing it while imagining I’m right there in, my boy, Snoop’s music video. I’ll be that 85-year-old lady sipping my cocktail in my rocking chair, nodding my head and still loving those dirty rap songs.

Right now though, as I sit down to write my very FIRST blog post, I’m thinking of a very different, equally awesome song. It’s by Natasha Bedingfield about new beginnings. Have you heard her song “Unwritten”? It starts out like this:

“I am unwritten, can’t read my mind, I’m undefined
I’m just beginning, the pen’s in my hand, ending unplanned
Staring at the blank page before you
Open up the dirty window
Let the sun illuminate the words that you could not find
Reaching for something in the distance
So close you can almost taste it
Release your inhibitions
Feel the rain on your skin”

As I embark on starting my own blog, Natasha’s lyrics describe exactly how I’m feeling.

I’m unwritten.

I’m unknown.

I’m going to release my inhibitions. I’m not sure where this will all go. I recently told my Internet Wife and good friend Nicole, who already has her own hilarious, witty and successful blog, The Better Half Blogs that I wanted to start a blog as well. She offered me a guest blog spot on her site (THANK YOU, NICOLE!), and asked me to describe who I am, why I want to start a blog and what it’ll be about. So, here goes!

[Ed. note: YOU’RE VERY WELCOME JENN!]

Who I am –
I’m a mommy of two adorable kids, ages 7 and 8. They are the loves of my life and make me the happiest mommy ever. They are also the reason I’ve recently started growing patches of grey hair all over my head and need to spend $200 every six months getting my hair colored. They are my best job and my hardest job. I have a handsome husband who after (almost) 14 years of being married, still makes me laugh and still makes me blush. He also drives me crazy at times and we have stupid arguments just like everyone else, but we are good for each other. He brings out my wild side when I need it and I tame him when he needs it. We are a good team. I also have two puppies, three nieces, a close & tight-knit family who I adore, and work part time for a startup company in Silicon Valley.

Some things I love– Chocolate, Bloody Mary’s, reality TV, sleeping in, laughing, warm weather, traveling, a great book, the smell of wet paint, Rombauer Chardonnay, lots of color, planning parties, the smell of Jo Malone Orange Blossom perfume, music and shoes.

Some things I hate – Needles, blood, sleep deprivation, cleaning, being unorganized, eggplant, being pregnant, being late, people who think they are “too cool”, cellulite, and s…l…o…w… drivers. (I was named “DMV’s Most Wanted” in my high school yearbook, thankyouverymuch. It made my parents very, very proud.)

Why start a blog?
Well, I’m a serial entrepreneur who loves to try new things. I love technology, the Internet and social media. I love funny and interesting stories. I love to learn and love to share. I’m not the shy type. I won’t hide the truth and I’ll give it to you straight. But, I also realize that these are just my OPINIONS. (I can’t stand people who think they are right about everything. Ugh!) I would love to share my experiences with others and connect with mommies and women from around the world.

My blog-
“When you start a blog”, people tell me, “You need to have a hook. Your blog should be about something in particular, like being a mommy, or about technology, or about living in Silicon Valley.” Sorry folks, it’s my party and I’ll cry if I want to. Or, I should say, It’s my blog and I’ll blog what I want to!” I want to blog about current events, celebrities, mommy issues, wife issues, great deals, great styles, bikini waxes, fun DIY projects, fabulous finds, Botox, ways to save money, how to please your man, health issues women should know about, beautiful houses we all dream of, things that piss me off, great family friendly vacation spots, funny friends and stories, etc. etc. I want to interview cool people and write about them. I want to give honest reviews on recipes, places, products and destinations. I’ll tell you about experiences I’ve had and I’ll be honest. Doesn’t that sound fun? It does to me.

Fears?
Yes, I do have some fears. I actually think I’m just a mediocre writer. I’m not always the best with words or the best with my punctuation. I use far to many exclamation marks!!!!!! What if people think I’m boring? What if it’s a big flop and my only followers are my mom, my sisters and my best friends? I know there will be some haters, but do you know what? They can go start their own brand new blog and be super interesting all the time and not have any haters. DO IT, I DARE YOU! DO IT!!

So, if you are more of a lover than a hater, I hope you will come join me in this fun new endeavor at www.siliconvalleymommy.com. Come groove with me on the dance floor! Just as Natasha Bedingfield sings, “Today is where my book begins and the rest is still unwritten.”

xoxo,
Jen

Thank you Jen, so much, we can’t wait to see what you have in store for us. Gangsta rap and all. Cheers!
