Retiring, giving away parts of my website. [Monday, October 6th, 2008]

I started my website http://www.a-mommys-world.com in 1998. It is now a huge website and also a huge mommy chat too at http://www.openmommychat.com It is all connected and has more than 10,000 members.

Basically what is happening is I need to be the behind the scenes person from now on. I want more time to myself and want to give back to the people basically. For all the great moms who helped me build the site I want to give back.

I want to not have to be on top of it all now, I want to literally GIVE AWAY parts so that others can have their own mommy site and chat room if they want as well without all the work, costs, hassle, and tech work.

I have over 100 chat rooms and over 500 message boards within the chat and forums on my website.

Basically all you need to do is stake claim to what you want and if someone has not already claimed it, it is yours, for good.

You can put in your request for any changes and additins you want and I or my staff will get that done in 3-7 days. In the mean time you can get started and also feel more than free to bring in your members or invite people to your boards or chat.

No costs, no hassle. I just need to do this because I want to be able to have more fun and less work online.
I want to give myself the oppertunity to explore new thiings in life and start new projects.

However I have built a huge website and refuse to just shut down on the thousands of members who love and rely on it.

So there you have it. If you want your own mommy site without the work, stake your claim.

Research Help from My Fellow Florida Neighbors [Sunday, October 15th, 2006]

I'm going to attempt to write a novel for the annual NaNoWriMo (http://www.nanowrimo.org/). Instead of going flash into this totally unprepared as I did last year (and wrote nary a word) I'm actually preparing this time around.

My story is could be considered chick-lit. It's a silly term and brings to mine silly women doing silly things and going crazy after men and whining about their bodies. While all that may be true I personally find a sisterhood with the Bridget Jones' of the literary world. I may not have shown my thong clad bum to the United Kingdom at large but I have shown the general public that I can be an ass, who hasn't. And who hasn't fallen for the wrong man, or worried about whether or not they should have a child, or if they are following their heart. My goal is to write from my heart, honestly, and from the stories of other women.

This is where you come in. I need some guinea pigs. I have a series of questions that I would like my female friends and LJ neighbors to answer as honestly as you can. You do not have to answer any questions you do not feel comfortable answering. If you are reading this post in one of the communities I've posted this in you can email me your answers to winninfelix@gmail.com (winni n felix @ g mail . com) if you don't feel comfortable posting a reply. Not all communties allow anonymous posting or allow posters to screen comments so I think emailing me is going to be the best way.

The questions are pretty personal, so please just answer what you want to answer, don't feel any pressure to bare your soul to me just because I asked. And also, please know that I am going to do my best to have no judgement over you - whatever you tell me will not be mentioned again unless you bring it up to me directly. Even if you post it in your journal I will pip up and say, "Hey this is that thing you told me about that one time."

I really only need women to answer these questions, specifically women between the ages of 27 and 35, and women between the ages of 55-65. Originally I was only asking these questions with straight women in mind, but then I started to think that was too narrowminded - not just that I needed to be diverse but because I wasn't thinking of anyone else except a married, straight white girl.

So I really need women. A host of women of all cultural backgrounds - race, religious choices, beliefs, sexuality - to answer my questions.

When I get your answers I will not be using your individual stories to build my novel but bits and pieces of you to form the characters. As I put this together I'll post updates and a link to the story so you can read it. I will be looking for someone who is good with grammar to help me out as I really, really stink at grammar. I don't totally want to embarrass myself.

Without further ado click the cut for the questions. Please take the time to read them and answer as honestly as you can. Read more...Collapse )

I had the baby!! [Monday, March 6th, 2006]

Well just as I had thought, they kept me in the hospital for my pre-eclampsia. I was in from the 22nd of February until just yesterday. So roughly like 11-12 days. The did various checks for protein in my urine and for the firt 48 hours I was monitored very closely. Then was transferred to the OB side of the ward for normal obeservation. Routine blood pressure checks and such. They decided to induce my labor on March 1st because the levels of protein in my urine got too high. They began the induction around 4 a.m. I was in labor for 15 hours, 5 of which I was stuck at 5 cm dialation. Since the labor wasn't progressing and my cervix was beginning to swell, they decided to do a c-section. I admit I was very very scared. I mean, its major surgery! Plus, Chad hadn't gotten there yet. He just barely made it. Right as they were about to take me back, he came and grabbed his OR clothes and was saying goodbye to me. After the doctors were all prepped, he was allowed to come into the OR. He sat next to me and held my hand.

Sara Angelina Nicole Engel was born March 1st at 8:27 pm. 5 lbs 0 oz, 19 inches long. Very little hair, dark. And right now her eyes are blue but they may change as she grows. Shes very small, being 1 month premature but very healthy. She had no trouble breathing at all, which is what I was worried most about since shes premature. We had to stay in the hospital until yesterday because my blood pressure was still high and she developed jaundice. But she quickly got better and now we are home. Its GREAT to be home. Spending 2 weeks in a hospital really takes a toll on you.

My first night with her at home was a little rough. Chad stayed with us to help out. I couldn't get her to sleep in her crib so I had her sleeping on my chest. She woke up a few times to feed and to be changed but it wasn't so bad. I was just REALLY sore and tired. Whats funny is she fell asleep today in my mom's arms and she put her in her crib and she slept for 3 hours! When I put her in the crib, she slept for 5 minutes and then cried. I am so not a pro at this. I'm thinking I'll have my mom put her down to sleep since shes so great at it.

Well, I have to go tend to my baby. I just wanted to let everyone know how we were doing!
