Recently, PMN E-zine was launched. An invitation to Pinoy mommy bloggers (to participate and contribute their original articles only) was sent. I really wanted to participate, but… I was hesitant for some reasons. That includes my not-so-perfect grammar. I sometimes get confused. Heehee! At least I’m honest! *wink*

I thought about it – many times. Why not make myself worthy? Instead of just chatting online during my freetime, why not inspire other people (if they are!) and make every minute useful? Somehow, I’m learning bwehehehe!

I found myself signing up to “Bringing Up Mom Section” the next day. Submitted my article to the Section Editor, Annamanila. I had the opportunity to chat with her yesterday. She said that I have the potential. I just have to be confident in what I write. My grammar is okay, I just need to tighten some of my words up. As long as the content is good, no worries. Besides practice makes perfect.

Same day, yesterday… I had the chance to check my personal emails thoroughly. And found an encouraging email stuck with the spam mails. It was en email from Sexy Mom asking me “How about joining Parenting Section?” Btw, she handles this section. Who? Me? The wanna-be-writer? Of course I said yes hahaha! I’d love to join! I felt important at that moment hahaha! An experienced mommy blogger/writer inviting me to join her section… flattering! I finished and submitted (shivering) two articles today! Again, I’m losing confidence. I told her I hope I made sense in my first article. She quickly answered “you always makes sense, actually, I just made some comments on your blog“. She also promised that she will give her honest ‘editorial” opinion. I’d appreciate that really. That’s how you make a person learn.

I just love it when people like them encourage me rather than…. oh well!

Thanks for the encouraging words! You both made my day!
