Mama's got a brand new style column

It’s true.

Apparently the folks over at Mommyblogstoronto like the whole Don Mills Diva thing enough to give me a voice on their fabulous parenting blogzine and I’m pretty freakin’ excited about it.

My column is called Shooting for Hip and it’s about reconciling the desire to stay stylish and current with the realities of parenting. I’m hoping to post a few times a week there and I’ll likely cross post some of those columns here. I’ll also post non-style-related rantings and photos exclusively on Don Mills Diva so suffice to say that mama’s gonna be a little busy from here on out.

Not that I’m complaining.

Those of you who know me well know I’ve been a writer searching for readers my whole life. I’ve worked as a journalist. I’ve dabbled in screenwriting. I’ve published smutty stories in True Story (for real!). I’ve even occasionally published articles and essays in more serious-type publications.

But I feel it is here at Don Mills Diva that I have truly found my voice.

In the mere six weeks I have been writing here, the response I have received has been overwhelmingly positive. I have received dozens of encouraging e-mails, phone calls and comments from my family, friends and readers. I have spent way too many hours trying to wrap my prehistoric brain around the technology and I have spent way too few hours catching up on my sleep. But not for one single second has it seemed like work.

Thank you, each and every one, for all your support.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Please continue reading and continue sharing this blog with everyone you know.

Please check out Shooting for Hip and all the other fabulous writers over at mommyblogstoronto. The site features the writing of some of Canada’s most provocative and witty moms (and dads) and I am truly honoured to add my voice.
