We’re off to see the Martha!


Recently, The Martha Stewart Show announced they’d be doing a special show about blogging! I saw a tweet about it over on twitter and couldn’t resist requesting tickets to the taping, which is slated to feature an entire audience filled with bloggers! Happily, I was granted two tickets and will be heading down to NYC this Wednesday along with Jen from She Takes The Cake.

I’m thrilled to be attending a show on this topic as I truly love to blog. Writing and conceptualizing Design is Everywhere has been so helpful to me as a designer and business owner. But even more important to me is the personal blog I’ve kept since early 2005, a chronicle of my experience mothering my two daughters. Initially started to update long-distance friends and family on our daily life, that blog has been a touchstone, a joy, validation, a blessing and so much more. While I’ve kept it relatively “unlisted” over these years, for myself and more importantly for my daughters privacy, I was amazed with the following it developed. I nearly fell over the day I got a comment from as far away as Australia.

While there’s a lot of hot air blowing around in some corners of the blogosphere, I find that the blogs I read are authentic and offer information that I’d never get from traditional media sources. I especially enjoy the unique voices found on the wedding and event planning, style, design, and business blogs I frequent. And I have found a great deal of comfort on some of the hilarious parenting blogs I subscribe to. While I may not blog forever, it has been a great source of PR and networking for me as a business owner. At the moment, I find blogging provides a satisfying outlet and some genuine enjoyment.

While I may not be the ultimate domestic diva (let’s just say hardcore housecleaning is not my fortΓ©), I love to cook and get crafty. Over the years Martha and her publications have definitely helped me in the decor department, and when it comes to wedding ideas she’s had some gems. I’ll be interested to catch a glimpse of Martha in person and I’ll definitely keep you all posted (pun-intended). Thanks for all your comments. You guys are what makes blogging so FUN!

  1. You will be a great addition to the martha audience. You were one of the first bloggers that I ever noticed who commented frequently on other blogs – and we all appreciate that. I would love to go to the Martha show. I have huge respect for what she does. have fun.

  2. I’m so glad you’re taking me with you…when I grow up I hope I can be half the blogger you are! I’m really looking forward to this, it won’t feel like work AT ALL and maybe we can even squeeze in a tiny bit of SITC attitude!

    You continue to be one of Women TIES’s most innovative, creative and exciting women entrepreneurs. I am so glad you and Jen will be heading off to New York City to promote your blog. As a huge fan, I’m sure there is more exciting news in your future. Keep up the great work. I think I’ll blog about you in my Women TIES blog today. Check out http://www.womenties.wordpress.com this afternoon. Go get them! Tracy

  4. Congratulations, Erin! I found out about your trip through Women’s Ties, but after reading through some of your older blog postings, I am now even more excited to hear through you about this experience!
