I don't proofread my posts before I publish them... cause I keep my thoughts au naturale.

New Year, New Blog- sorta

As I said in my last post, mom blogs are dead and are becoming obsolete.  I enjoy maintaining a social media presence and at times need to use my blog for PR posts, so I have decided to revamp my "identity" in keeping with my own life and what interests me.  Plus, I do enjoy being able to occasionally blog as an outlet, although I don't generally have something mind-blowing to say.  I started Mom on the Random in November 2008 with just this blog and a Twitter account.  I now use Pinterest, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, Google+ and Facebook for my online persona.  I am now changing them all to "A Borderline Mom."  For those of you who may be new to reading my blog, I have been in treatment of various capacities since 1999ish.  I have a primary diagnosis of borderline personality disorder and a secondary diagnosis of bipolar disorder, along with mild PTSD.

I think that in an effort to relate to others like myself and to let other moms know that sometimes the reality of the word "mom" is waaaaaaay different than the fantasy, this change is necessary.  I appreciate those of you who have stuck with me for any number of days, months, or years.

As I said, I will occasionally have PR-related posts, such as reviews, etc. because getting free stuff is almost as awesome as finding a bargain at Goodwill- and I'm a thrifty lady!  Plus, I have four kids and live on a college adjunct's wages and my husband is a correctional officer- so it's not like I'm made of money!

Thanks again for visiting and hopefully you can find something that interests you on one of my social media accounts.  You can find me as @hamsterkitten on Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram and YouTube and as A Borderline Mom on Google+ and Facebook.

Here's to a new year and new beginnings!!
