Hey Look at Me…..I’m On a Blog

(Source: NBC’s SNL I’m on a Boat)


Oh my gosh….picking a name for a blog seems so permanent…..I’m having a panic attack thinking about it.  A few years ago, when I picked a name for my website Lil Blue Boo, it was done on a whim…..I never expected anyone to read it……so I just went with the first thing that popped in my head.  It worked out okay. When I thought about what to name my new little section of Babble Voices, I picked the first thing that came to mind: Hey, look at me…… (insert sarcastic tone)….

Yep…look at me. I’m guilty. I write about myself…..and projects I do…..and motherhood….and cancer….and things I love.  That’s the only material I have. I’m not an expert in any one field, I don’t have strong opinions about most things, and I for sure don’t have a background in writing (feel free to proofread my posts for me). And yes, when larger websites link me up I feel a little bit popular.

When I was younger, if my brother caught my sister or I checking ourselves out in a window, we’d hear: Hey, look at ME….I’m pretty. Or if my mother commented on a good report card it was: Hey, look at ME….I’m the genius of the family. It wasn’t in a mean way… was in a “don’t get too big for your britches” way.

My favorite definition:
Blogger: Term used to describe anyone with enough time or narcissism to document every tedious bit of minutia filling their uneventful lives. Possibly the most annoying thing about bloggers is the sense of self-importance they get after even the most modest of publicity. Sometimes it takes as little as a referral on a more popular blogger’s website to set the lesser blogger’s ego into orbit. (source)


So there it is….I’ll be documenting every tedious bit of minutia filling my uneventful life here. Thank you in advance for reading 🙂


A few things about me as a quick introduction:

I’m a mother to a 5-year-old daughter I nicknamed Boo.
I’m a wife to a 36-year-old husband I nicknamed Mr. LBB. (update: oops he’s 37, sorry)
I read three websites religiously: Daily Mail, Passive Aggressive Notes, & Reality Tea
I’m almost 6 feet tall.
I love SNL digital shorts.

And before my brother has a chance to say it:

Hey, I’m Ashley…..look at me…..I write for Babble Voices.
