Blogger In Residence
This month, Katherine will get to add blogger to her repertoire as she shares personal anecdotes with millions of women in the iVillage community.
iVillage announced today that she will pen the next edition of its signature celebrity blog series, CelebVillage. As this month's "blogger-in-residence," Katie will discuss her life as a mom, the decision to adopt, married life in Hollywood and the importance of pet spay/neuter, among other topics in four blog posts throughout January.
"CelebVillage is where some of today's biggest stars in movies, TV and music write candidly and poignantly about their lives and share it with women and moms in the iVillage community," said Serena Kappes, iVillage’s Entertainment Editorial Director. "We're excited to have Katherine Heigl share her own personal story – as we know that these topics resonate with all women, whether you’re a famous actress or working mom."
"Women today are balancing so many roles in their lives," added Heigl. "I’m very glad that I can reach out to women by sharing my own experiences on iVillage. It's reassuring to have that peer-to-peer support that only connecting with others in the same place can give."
"I knew, of course, as I prepared to welcome my daughter into my life that it would be a bit of a juggling act but I had no doubt that I could do it. After all, it's 2012 and women have been told that we can have it all if we want it. I went into it full throttle, ready to buckle down and make it all work seamlessly as I always imagined I could. The thing is I couldn't." Katherine Heigl, iVillage - January 2012
