Project Mom Casting Call

I can’t believe I’m doing this.

It’s so out of character for me. I much prefer being behind the camera than in front.

But when I heard about the Project Mom casting call, I couldn’t resist throwing my white hat into the interview ring.

The folks at Project Mom, a reality TV show about online moms, will be conducting interviews at the BlogHer conference in New York City next week and they want to know the stories behind the blogs so they can select candidates.

Here’s mine:

I’m a newbie in the blogging world. I launched Its My Time to Write this past Mother’s Day weekend, at the start of Food Allergy Awareness Week. Food and food allergies are a central part of my blog. My son has multiple food allergies and I hope that by sharing our story – the ups and downs, the challenges and triumphs – I can help raise awareness about this health issue and connect with other moms also dealing with it.

I’m also blogging because it gives me a creative outlet for my passion, writing. I love to write and my blog gives me the opportunity to write and write often. I write about my family, about being a working mom, about finding the time to exercise (or not as they case may be at the moment) and about chasing my dream of writing a novel.

In just these past few months, I’ve fallen in love with blogging. I’ve connected with the community through MomzShare and Twitter and I’m looking forward to making more connections at BlogHer. There are a lot of creative moms out there and I feel blessed to be a small part of that large group.

So, why do I want to be a part of Project Mom? I don’t really, well, not the on-air part. Just the thought of being on television is graying my hair. But it’s worth it if I can continue to raise awareness about food allergies.

And, hey, maybe it’ll be good for me to break out of my comfort zone, if only for an episode.

What do you think? Am I reality TV material?

    What is that quote? “When one door closes a window opens.” I’m not sure but it sounds like an interesting experience and our lives should be full of interesting experiences!! You have a point of view to share. Don’t be stingy! 🙂

  3. Good luck, you’d be great!
