The Living with Food Allergies blog carnival has a new home!
Over the last few months, I've been taking a close look at my priorities and trying to figure out where my time would best be spent. I had reached a (happy) point where I had so many interesting projects I was eager to work on, but I was confronted by that fact of reality called "there are only so many hours in a day."
I needed to drop some of my online responsibilities, and this carnival was a logical choice. Even though it didn't take up all that much of my time, knowing I was responsible for it weighed on my shoulders, and I was finding it difficult to keep up with it--finding hosts, etc.
So Jennifer B of Food Allergy Buzz has graciously agreed to take over the administration responsibilities for this carnival. She has a great blog, and is one of the creators of the Food Allergy Twitter party! I'm really glad she is willing and able to become the new admin!
Also, I think the time has definitely come for the carnival to find a home on a true food allergy blog. Like Jennifer, I am (and probably always will be) a Food Allergy Mom. I am dedicated to educating people about food allergies, and providing a little bit of a glimpse into this side of our life. It is one of the ways in which I can support my son, who deals with this condition daily, who is so strong and brave about it.
But this blog here is not a Food Allergy Blog and I don't really want it to be a Food Allergy Blog. It's a blog about me--and food allergies are a part of my life, sure. But only a part. I find that I want to write more about other topics these days (mainly, Objectivism and parenting via non-punitive discipline).
I'm glad the Living with Food Allergies carnival will continue, and at one of the most informative and thoughtful Food Allergy Blogs out there! Of course, I will participate and even host from time to time. And it might change--I can't wait to see what Jennifer does with it, where it goes!
So please join me in congratulating and supporting Jennifer in this new undertaking! Thanks!
