I don’t really ever enter blog contests anymore. When I first started blogging I would enter giveaways and blog for a chance to win contests all the time. I thought my days of entering contests were over – until I read about this one!
At first I didn’t think I would enter. I mean, I’m not even a mother. Well, I consider myself a mother to Chester and Cleo (if you don’t read my blog usually, check out their photo under “mascots” in my sidebar). I know it’s not the same thing but when I’m up at 4 am with one of them sick don’t try to tell me that!
The other reason why I didn’t think I would enter is because it would mean I would need to share more about my life with you all.
I’m not sure why it is that I don’t share a lot about my personal life with my readers. I was at a blogging conference this weekend with a good friend who has read my blog for a long time. She told me that before she knew me personally she had no idea if I was married, had kids, etc. I kept it all private. Until now.
I have recently lost a lot of weight. Like over 100 pounds. It’s obvious to people who know me well but to you, my blog readers who hardly ever see pictures of me, it’s not so obvious. Until about 30 words ago.
That’s why I need a makeover and would love to win this contest. I’m not sure how to dress this new body and find myself still hiding it the way I used to. As you can imagine I don’t have a large wardrobe anymore and could really use a style lesson.
The bloggers who met me at BlogHer last year may not even recognize me this year. It’s like being able to make a fresh start and I love it. I’d love it more if I could have a little help in showing my new body off. I’m so proud of how far I have come. I lost the weight and shared more about my life with you all. Who knows, if I win maybe I’ll finally share some pictures.
