Once upon a time, almost 2 years ago, there was a silly 30-something mommy who knew NOTHING about the blogging world, but decided to put finger to the keyboard anyway. She was pretty awkward, wasn’t that funny, and would have just been entirely lame…except that blogging sort of saved her. It gave her a voice when she needed one, and this was very cool thing.
There were a few blogs and sites that she religiously read, fan-worshiped the authors and left comments on, hoping to garner some shred of acknowledgement. One of these first sites she fell in love with was Aiming Low, and then one day, as in TODAY, after a lot of hard work, dramatic whine-sessions to her husband, and bribes for her children to take naps, this Momma’s dream came true and she became a staff writer for Aiming Low.
What is this site? In my opinion, the tagline, “Perfectly Medicore!” says it all. As it says on the “About” page:
Here at Aiming Low we strive for anti-perfection.
It’s not about the failure to attain perfection….it’s about understanding that perfection is not only over-rated, it’s a big fat whopping lie-burger with cheese…and fries…and onions.
We are a group of women/men/moms/dads/bloggers/friends/writers that believe that there’s no shame in serving mac and cheese for dinner three nights in a row, Febreeze was created to make a questionably clean shirt smell ready-to-walk-out-the-door-fresh and that slack isn’t a way of life…it’s an art.
So, if you’re tired of being told that you should be better than you are…a better spouse, a better parent, a better cook, a better housekeeper, a better friend, a better all-around-person…this is your place.
We are your tribe.
We believe you’re perfectly not-perfect exactly as you are.
We invite you in for a cocktail. Even though it’s only 2PM. That’s okay around here. We don’t judge.
So, like I said, Aiming Low is my amazing, I love them, and I am so honored to be on their staff, I am snort-crying and brushing away tears. Won’t you please go over there and show me some love to help this fairy tale keep coming true?? xo, readers.
P.S. I am writing about the endless job of taking young kids on vacation–entirely too much fun, of course 😉
