When I started this blog, I didn’t do it with the intention of becoming a “mommy blogger.” When I jotted down the “About Me” section, I reflected less on what it was and more on who I was (am). When I came up with the subhead, “striving for style in the land of sippy cups and see-saws,” I knew what I wanted to write about, but not entirely for who.
The stay-at-home mom? The working mom? The soon-to-be mom? The young mom? The non-mom?
Turns out, it’s all of you.
Once I started to develop a little following (thank you, thank you, thank you for reading), it occurred to me that I haven’t really summarized the purpose or the vision or the mission behind WhatWouldGwynethDo, for you or for myself.
So here goes.
A lovely lady who was essentially a complete stranger at the time tipped me off to my own mission before I did.
In this little profile she did on me and the blog, she described it like this: “wwgd curates the most beautiful, stylish products and talks about her life as a mama, wife, and working woman. she does it all in a voice that is sometimes funny, sometimes heartfelt, but always like you’re talking to a good friend.”
A good friend. That’s it.
I want to inspire you like only a good friend can.
Whether you come here and find something to laugh at, something that brings a tear to your eye, something to covet, something to read, somewhere to go…I want you to feel like you’ve found it thanks to a good friend.
I want young, creative moms like me to feel fulfilled and women who want to be moms to feel excited and those who have no interest in becoming a mom to realize that it can be cool and inspiring and encouraging, even if it’s not for them…maybe even give them a little window into what their moms may be thinking beyond all those annoying phone calls.
I want my voice to be just what Theresa said – sometimes funny, sometimes not. But always there.
I want you to find parenting tips, home design ideas, ridiculous stories of kitchen disasters and messy marriage squabbles, encouragement…
And of course, like any good friend, I want you to find killer brownies.
Thanks for reading.
