Monday thoughts…

Well, today has been a hell of a day. And, in his truest most genuine form, Knight has come to my rescue again. Honestly, I don’t know what I’d do without that man. I am a firm believer that you learn just how much someone can mean to you when you’re going through the worst of it and they’re right there in the trenches with you. That’s not for the faintest of hearts, so I am grateful that he hasn’t given up on me.

Something that I’ve realized is that I’m really good at telling stories and that I really suck at following up with them after the fact. So, let’s share some updates:

On January 10th I shared ‘Story Time – Blaming the other woman‘. If you read that story, if you remember that story at all, the update is they’re both pregnant. His wife and his girlfriend (who has been publicly reported as ‘side chick’ ) are both pregnant. Their due dates are actually less than a month apart. So, I guess their kids can be siblings! I feel for those unborn kids.

On February 4th I shared ‘She’s Pregnant‘. If you read that story, or if you remember that story at all, the update is, they got married. Yeah, they got married last Friday, Feb 21. The only people in attendance were his parents, her parents and her younger brother. I guess they’re going full steam ahead with this whole ‘we’re going to be a family’ thing. I feel for this unborn child.

Looking at my story updates, I’m possibly seeing why so many of the social media algorithms are sharing pregnancy and new mom photos to me. Everyone I follow/know on social media seems to be pregnant. Well, not everyone. But, there are a lot of babies coming in 2020.

Other updates:

  • During a recent job interview I was asked when I plan to have children and how many children I plan to have. I can’t even begin to explain all the things wrong with that.
  • I launched a Patreon account. So, if you’d like to support my blog, click the link in my menu!

Posts I’m working on for this week:

  • All of the reasons why you should love your analytics
  • The Broke Girls Survival Guide
  • Are the stereotypes of Canadians actually true?
  • The latest blogging scam I’ve seen going around

I’ll probably sprinkle in some daily life stuff in there as well. Because, why not pour my heart out to the internet? WordPress is a whole lot kinder than the real world. I will take suggestions to, if anyone has any.

Oh, also, please note that if you email me it might take a few days to get a response back to you. I typically respond to every email that I get, I just get sidetracked. Especially now that I am healthy again, my computer isn’t being turned on as often.


Before I share these links I just want to say that my voice is something that I’m often very insecure of. I have a very soft voice, naturally, and people use my voice as a means to judge me as unintelligent and ditzy. So, if you do listen to either of these links, please keep in mind that I’m not trying to talk quietly… that’s just my voice.

Geneva (from CerratoMom) has a podcast that I was a guest on this week. Click here to listen to our converation. We talked about a lot of different subjects, and if I’m being totally honest, it’s a lot of me talking over her, accidentally. Sorry G! Do give it a listen, if you have time. And do have your volume on high because each of us have an extremely soft voice so you’re going to need high volume to hear us.

Bradley (from ColdBrewCalls) has a podcast that I was guest on late last year. Click here to listen to our conversation. We speak about many things, from being a millennial to job hunting to travelling and much more. I quite enjoyed the conversation, and it is a long one. Give it a listen if you’ve got some extra time.

If you have a podcast and would ever be interested in having me take part, shoot me an email at

  1. “Looking at my story updates, I’m possibly seeing why so many of the social media algorithms are sharing pregnancy and new mom photos to me.” 😐

    That’s cool that there are new podcasters to listen to. Whenever I find a podcast from a WP blogger, I subscribe to them on iTunes. Right now, I am listening to Cerrato Mom’s podcast b/c of your link. Thanks V! 😊

      1. Btw, I like how you added pictures to your IG to complement the quotes/words of wisdom. It’s a nice touch.

        No problem! I’ll follow these channels from my phone (iTunes) since I’m addicted to listening to podcasts. It’s really cool that you were interviewed!

  2. That’s really great that you tried some different things with the podcasts. You are very good at storytelling and I like the easy newsy way you write – as if you were just having a chat – it’s nice and one of the reasons I read your blog.

  3. I love reading the updates! I feel really sad for the unborn children though…
    As for what you are working on, I can’t wait to read them! Especially the one on Canadians! Since I’m Canadian! 😉
    As for the JOB INTERVIEW question? WTF?? 😧

    1. Ohhhhhhhhhhh, would you ever be interested in collaborating for the Canadian post?

      As for the Job Interview question – it’s pretty ridiculous. There’s no way you can answer that question and win.

  4. Hey V, I was informed 30 minutes ago that my shift has been extended to 5pm local time. 8pm your time. Would it be possible to reschedule our meeting? I’m sorry for this short notice and am really keen to have my brain picked by you. Would 8pm work for you? Or is there a better day for you? Sorry for this inconvenience. Regards Tyler

  5. It was a lovely surprise to hear your voice on the podcasts! You may be soft-spoken, but you’re very articulate, and I could hear you think of your words before speaking (and embrace that raspiness!). Likewise, I’m insecured about my voice, but it’s great you had the guts to put yourself out there even more and sharing more about yourself with the world. It’d take me years to get to that point! Hope to read (and hear) more stories from you soon!

  6. I don’t know…I just think that you’re kinda cool and it would be fun to hang out with you. The written word is a lost art of sorts, but you have managed to keep it alive and well. I look almost daily for the post that someone was lucky enough to scoop you up into their workforce. If only those interviewers you’ve encountered could’ve seen that. Their loss…..

  7. I finally had a chance to listen to your podcast with Geneva. It was enjoyable I liked listening to your insights in particular about how millennials are more communicative these days and confront things head on, in other words more sensible in a way. Your accent is adorable! But your voice is nothing like I imagined! You’re like the complete opposite of me, my voice is super loud and brassy. I guess it’s as obnoxious as my blog is. Anyway, that podcast was a treat thanks.

    1. Thanks for listening! My voice is definitely a reason why I prefer marketing over PR. People often don’t take me seriously because of my soft-tone. As a result, I’ve always had much more success behind the screen!
