wonderingWhen people ask, “What do you do?” Is it easy to answer?

I am finding that question is exceedingly more complicated for me to answer with each passing week.

I am always “mom” and all the fun stuff that goes with that job.

But then there’s this blog thing. And. And… I stumble about… My words fall from my lips like awkward things falling from a container of awkwardness…

I’m a mom. I blog. I write a. I. Blog. And social media. And then there’s YouTube…

Even at blogging conferences I struggle with my identity.

Am I a “mommy blogger”?

A “humor blogger”?

A “review blogger”?

A social media consultant?

A video producer, director? I’m  kidding. A little.

An STAR actor???

Then I have conversations like I did recently. A conversation with a non-blogging male who didn’t seem to judge my involvement in this social space, but was undoubtedly as confused as I am as to WHAT THE HECK I AM!

— Is that a rat or a squirrel??? —

I digress.

As our conversation wove through my identity crisis… he said,

So basically… you’re an entertainer.

Yeah. Entertaaaaaaaaiiiiiiner!
