My First Big Opportunity as a Blogger: Sharing My Story in Toi Magazine

Just Me Blogging, Life After Miscarriage, Poems

By June 2019 my blog and Instagram had really taken off. Parts of me was thankful and overwhelmed by the comments and subscribers I was receiving everyday. However, I also felt a sense of fear and vulnerability that I had never experienced before. In someway I just wanted to throw it all away, my blog and my story, but in others I wanted to keep pushing forward despite my overwhelming feeling of vulnerability. I decided to keep moving forward because I knew somewhere in this world, my story would help someone. I knew in someway, I was making a difference in this world.

After publishing my blog post The Hurtful Things People Say and What Not to Say After a Woman Has Had a Miscarriage, I received a message from Toi Magazine. As I read the message I was paralyzed with excitement and curiosity. The purpose of the message was to inquire if I would be interested in an interview with Toi Magazine and my story of suffering a miscarriage. I couldn.t believe it! I was actually being offered the opportunity to share my story in an international magazine! I had always dreamed of being published, but never knew if it would be possible. I talked over the message with my husband and my parents, then agreed to the interview.

Within two weeks I was sent various interview question prompts that I could do to write and share my story. I was in contact with the editor and expressed to her my gratitude of allowing me such an awesome opportunity to share my story. After I submitted my story, I couldn’t wait to see my article published.

The June/July issue of Toi Magazine was published July 2nd, 2019. I quickly jumped on Instagram and the website and perused the magazine… for a moment I was scared it wasn’t published, but then I found it. Four full pages of my article, my story and my big break.
