So… I want to start a new segment here at BWI Greater Austin, I want to start highlighting some of our AWESOME members and their babywearing stories. Babywearing has meant so many things to each of us and everyone has their own journey, it’s an opportunity to highlight our diversity and the many sides of baby wearing.
That said, I thought about approaching people and it went like this:
Me: “Hey Babywearer! Can I put you on my blog?”
You: “Uhm, excuse me? What’s the blog post going to look like?”
Me: “It’s going to be awesome!”
You: “Who else has done this/ Can I see a past post/ What do you need from me?”
Me: “Ehhh… yeah, about that…”
So instead of alienating the friends I’ve already made and possibly every baby wearer in Austin (once the word got out about that weird blog girl), I’ve decided to use myself as the guinea pig. Keep a look out for our Meet-a-Member Post later on today, about the only Babywearer that doesn’t have a choice about having awkward conversations with me, myself!
Also, please let me know if you’d be interested in being highlighted in this weekly post! I’d LOVE to highlight you (as long as you’re a baby wearer)!
