Hello my lovely and loyal readers!
(I know; I know: I never write directly to you. Is this weird? I hope this isn’t weird.)
Anywho, I have some BIG news I want to share with y’all, and I want to let you know how my news will affect Sunshine Spoils Milk.
When I started this blog in January 2015 it was a place for me to share my thoughts and experiences as a mother living with a mental illness. I hoped to help one other person, to make sure one other person knew they weren’t alone. That was my one and only goal, and based on your feedback, I feel like I have far exceeded that. While some of my pieces relate more to parenting and some skew more the mental health direction, you have been receptive to both. (So thank you!) The good news is that our mission won‘t change. What will change is how frequently I am posting.
Because what I didn’t think would happen just 10 months ago was that my writing would be so well-received by so many others, and by so many outlets. What I didn’t think would happen was that I would be spending nearly every free minute of every day writing. What I didn’t think would happen was that I would make a full-time job out of writing.
But I have.
As of this week I am officially a staff writer for BUSTLE. More specifically, I am a news and features writer for their yet-to-be launched sister-site Romper: a site for young women, young women with kids! The site is slated to launch next month (November 2015)— and I couldn’t be more excited — but this means you may see less frequent, original content on here.
Don’t worry: I am still very, very dedicated to Sunshine Spoils Milk, our mission, and all of you. That is why instead of churning two or three half-hearted pieces out per week, I plan to focus on writing three or four solid stories per month. You ALL deserve it; you deserve my time, my intention, and the best content I can possibly give.
