|Chicagonista Live Girls - L-R MJ, Beth, Duong, & Nancy|
My daily life today is consisting of deadlines from my Chicagonista staff writers and many follow-ups and emails with folks I keep my online and offline professional relationships with. Site maintenance on social networks like twitter, facebook, site aggregators and such are part of this daily routine. At most days I falter from not having enough help, but I am appreciative of the time my writers has dedicated to help me with the site.
I’ve developed an online persona. Perhaps a more organized MJ than the normal MJ mom who has to swing things to get by. I’ve learned to schedule my way around social media work engagements while I struggle to juggle nap times and play times with my 3 kids. But that’s ok, because I’ve learned to love what I do. And this is just how I roll.
Everything has been so rewarding. It works with my life, my family, and I’m grateful for what I have.
I’m also blessed to have met some new friends along the way. Actually, I met a gazillion of friends. But something special came along and met girlfriends that I feel would be there even if you strip me back down to just me. With or without Chicagonista, I owe these ladies something really special and genuine that they’ve given me. Friendship filled with respect and admiration for each other.
I’m talking about my 3 girlfriends: Duong, Nancy, and Beth. They also happen to be my co-hosts in our live online show called Chicagonista Live. Being with them are always filled with laughter and sometimes tears…but always end in comforting words and laughter. And for that I’m thankful.
Beth, Nancy, and Duong – thank you for adding more sugar in my bowl!
