Katie Belanger
Knight Errant: What is your blog about?
Katie Belanger: My blog was about embracing the reality: the joy and the pain of becoming a new mama. I wrote about my son and our time together when I was home from work on maternity leave this past fall. I wrote about whatever was on my mind on any particular day- anything from sleep deprivation and the stress of managing my rambunctious dogs around my infant to the joy of holding my sleeping baby or hanging cloth diapers on the clothesline.
KE: How often do you blog?
KB: While on maternity leave, I would try to post every weekday, while my husband was at work. It was a way for him to know what we were up to at home, and a chance to gain some regularity to our days.
KE: What is your favorite thing about blogging?
KB: My favorite thing about blogging was documenting the ways my son was changing in his first few months of life. Every day, I felt like he was growing and noticing new things about the world around him – one day he discovered his hands, the next day he could grab his toes. I loved capturing these tiny moments.
KE: Why do you blog?
KB: I blogged because I didn’t want to forget that precious time at home. Babies change your life in so many ways, and one of the major ways our son changed my life was that I was so exhausted from sleep deprivation that I could barely remember to eat lunch. I wrote to remember the blurred days of new parenthood.
KE: How would you describe your blog in 3 words?
KB: My blog in three words: “new mama love”
KE: How long have you had your blog for?
KB: I started my blog when I had two months of maternity leave left, on September 4th, 2013.
KE: How did you start blogging?
KB: I started blogging by using a free template through WordPress.
KE: Is it a writing blog or a picture blog?
KB: It is mainly a writing blog, but I would occasionally post pictures of my son.
KE: Is it public, or is it more of a personal blog?
KB: It is more of a personal blog, in that I wrote it for myself, but it’s open for public viewing, and many of my friends and family would read it and comment on it. I enjoyed getting feedback from friends who remembered going through a lot of the same “new mama firsts.”
