The More Things Change...

Wednesday, December 3, 2008
Hey Readers,

While it feels a bit sad to see Monica, my co-conspirator in this little Devi adventure, move onto her own greener pastures, I for one believe that the South Asian media landscape needs as much substance and talent as possible and I'm excited to see what "indian-ish" things Monica will do next.

As for this site: Not much is gonna change, really. Hard to believe it's only been 3 months since this has begun because hearing from you guys has become a part of my everyday life. So cyber-weird...!

Look out for some changes in the site in the coming months, including a roster of guest bloggers to talk about all things I cannot...or at least should not...! Curious? How about an Indian daddy blogger married to a diva Devi, an Indian sex-expert, the quintessential Indian Aunty to give you advice on all things Indian-protocol, and somebody who can cook (Monica's departure leaves the blog sorely lacking in that area). We are also going to start interviewing high-profile "Devis with Babies" from all walks of life, including a woman who has started her own line of "Baby Einstein books" targetted at Indian children; a mommy-by-day-jewelry-designer-by-night; and a photographer who takes the most unique and meaningful photos of children I have ever seen.

And that's just in January. Ladies: We're just getting started!

Also stay tuned for the launch of our sister-site, Brown Girl Guide, an atelier of sorts for all things Brown style. Think of it as your favorite boutique and your best friend--the one who tells you the truth about the dress, makes you laugh, and explains how those models in the magazines get those awesomely shiny legs--all rolled up in one. Sign up here.

As always, please continue to let "Devis with Babies" know what you like, what you don't like, what you want more of, what you want less of. You can reach me at deviswithbabies@gmail.com, and of course through the comments to the posts.

Bon voyage Monica, hope you keep reading ladies--I'm loving being on this motherhood ride with you...

Glad DwB and Brown Girls are sticking around! Love the idea of a guest daddy blogger!

Hi Devis, or I suppose Devi now? Echo the previous posters, I think this site is truly unique in its focus and I love how it caters to so many aspects of my life, motherhood being a big one of them. Don't change too much! (Haha I feel like I am writing a yearbook entry!) Where will the Brown Girls be?

Woo hoo long live Devis with Babies! Looking forward to seeing all that is next and thank you guys/girls/whoever is responsible for providing such an entertaining lense for South Asian women and mommas!

Um. Okay, you might not believe me but I have ALWAYS wondered about the shiny legs! Seriously, how go girls get their legs to look SO shiny if they are not always re-applying baby oil? I love how it looks, especially in photos and especially since my skin, especially on my legs, tends to get really ashy. AKA not shiny. Do tell! (And I am happy too that this blog is around. It seems to me that there are ten million sites about motherhood but about 2 good ones; would hate to see one of the 2 disappear)

Deepa, I have been reading the blog from the beginning--I am what they call a "lurker" I suppose and have never commented, though I did email with you about Gilt.com! Just wanted to add my praise to the ring. I know this sounds rather silly but I have really loved being able to check in here every day and the content resonates with me in a real way. Nice to see you added a little blurb about yourself. I bet others, like I, would love to know more about our resident Devi blogstress so perhaps an interview with yourself is in order!

Sorry to see one of you go, but glad the blog continues on, been hooked since Sepia. You should consider having someone guest blog who hasn't had kids yet but plans to...
