Real Moms, Real Talk: Janeane Davis, President/CEO – James, Davis & Associates

C: How long have you been blogging and how did you get started?

JANEANE: I’ve been blogging for about three years. I got started in blogging because my friend and I had a competition to read the bible (we’re such good Christians that we can’t just read the bible to read the bible…we had to read the bible on a bet [Laughter]). The deal was that whoever read the most at the end of the competition, would get $90 of yarn. I am so competitive, it’s ridiculous, and I knit like a maniac! So I ended up winning the competition. We were able to keep track of who won because my friend suggested that we blog about it. So we started writing blogs about what we were reading in the bible every day. That’s how I started blogging. I just started taking it seriously within the last eight months, and now blog every day.

Some of the women and I in SOSM are launching a website in which we will showcase some of the writing of the different women in the group. And I’ll continue to write for my own blog so I can see that grow and develop. I’m such a blogging nut that all of my children have blogs! They’re all different and they write when they feel like it. Those blogs are: Black Girl, Brown Sugar (by Euphoria Davis, age 16), Peyton’s Game Spot  (by Peyton Davis, age 9), Zahirah:  The Bright and Shining One (by Zahirah Davis, age 5), The Famous Camille (by Camille Davis, age 5).

    Awesome interview. I can only imagine what that conversation was like LOL. I love that all of your kids have blogs. I’d love more info about how the five year olds do with that. I have a five year old and the child never. stops. talking. If I could get him to put some of those words somewhere else I can only imagine how much quieter my nights might be *dare to dream* LOL

      LOL. I really liked the idea of the kids…especially the 5-year-olds…having a blog. I will definitely start one for my son. I think it would be a fun thing for us to do together. 🙂

    “And the reality is that if I want to work uninterrupted, I have to wait for bedtime. I try to work my life around theirs instead of the reverse, otherwise we’ll all be miserable.” This is so powerful! This is my truth also. Our house is so full of life that I have to wait until every eye is closed before I can even focus.

      I hear you Uneeka! I’ve had to learn this lesson a few times. But it makes for a more peaceful mommy if I just focus all of my attention on the babies until they don’t need me to focus on them anymore 🙂
