BUSY!! It's been a while since I have blogged so I asked myself why? We'll I have been busy and more. Being a mom and entrepreneur explain below.
I am a homeschooling work from home mom. I am teaching my two children Kindergarten and 1st grade. Including 4 subjects Math, Ready, Science and social studies everyday I also teach them weekly vocabulary/ spelling words and a book of the week. We read and discuss daily every week. In addition to those duties I also cook, serve and clean all meals. I come up with projects for fun and education. I set up and clean up art projects. After all that and more I also handle most household bills, shopping, budgeting, taxes and most anything else. I also handle research and paperwork for our Farm and rental property. In addition to that I have written, illustrated and published a children's book. I have also written 3 more for the series I am working on writing and illustrations when I find the time. All this and some more I have going on is why I have not had time to blog. But blogging is something I truly do enjoy. I love to write. It gives me great joy to put words to paper and share them. I work so hard on so many avenues in my life so I can live the life I want so I can be free from a boss and be happy. I enjoy how I spend my days with my kids cooking and writing and managing our land and businesses. If I don’t enjoy something I don’t invest in it and what I do enjoy I have invested in. I have also forgotten things like taking time to write for the pure joy of it not to publish or to make money from a sponsor but to just put something out that I am proud of something that might make someone else happy or more aware of a resource available to them. One of my favorite pieces I ever wrote I didn’t make a cent for and it was titled something like ‘how to start a business with little to no cash’ I shared a list of website resources that offered free services. On the other hand at the height of my online writing for money faze the thing I think paid the most per word was a deodorant endorsement. Far from something that would make you feel like a real writer. I lost the passion for writing after about a year of making good money but not having any topics to write about that fueled my passion. When I stated my blog I simply wrote about what interested me or things I had learned. I loved it and the articles showed that passion. I cheated myself when I started writing articles from sponsors and I cheated my followers and it showed! I really want to write again and I don’t know what subject will come to the top but I am gonna put my heart out there. I will only take a sponsor if it’s something I already like and I hope to share my wonderful life and my wonderful family. My hope is by getting to know us you learn a little something and smile a lot more! Thanks if you have read this far;) your one of the rare ones.
