It’s been a full month since I have started this blog. So, I wanted to take a second to say thank you. Thank you to the 137 people who have collectively viewed my blog 363 times this month (that’s over 2.5 times per person). Also thank you to everyone who has chosen to keep up to date with me and liked my Facebook page. And a big thank you to those of you who have helped share my words.
It may not seem like much, but I can tell this is the start to something amazing. I’ve always dreamed of being a writer (the first time I said I wanted to be a writer was 3 years old) and this is just the start. It seems fitting that my one month blog-iversary is on Independence Day because for me this is my own type of independence. I was always too scared to put my writing on the top of my to-do list. I believed that it wasn’t as important as working, finding a job, cleaning the house, because it was fun. If it’s fun, it can’t be important. But the truth is, that makes it that much more important. The start of this blog is much more than just a side thing I do with free time. I have all of you to thank for that. All of you who have already joined me and all of you who will in the future. You are as big of an inspiration for me as I hope to be for you.
I would like to take this opportunity to let you in on three things that you can expect from me in the future.
This month is Camp Nanowrimo (If you don’t know what that is check out all the details here: http://campnanowrimo.org/ ). I have participated a few times in the past and have decided to participate again. For this camp’s project, I am working to write my first book. It’s all about my life as a parent of toddlers. More of the crazy, fun-filled, antics that I post here, but new stories, new insight, and book length. If all goes well, I will finish the draft for Camp Nanowrimo this year, edit during the next few months, and this will be out to buy in October.
I have been working as a writing coach for about 6 years now. Between working on my Master’s degree and having babies I have taken it easy and only took on a few projects. But I’m ready to start building up again. Over the next few months I will be working to bring information and inspiration about writing. Expect more information about that later (it’ll be posted to my Facebook and twitter, so make sure to follow me to keep up to date).
In the meantime, I have just a few available spots for writing coaching open if anyone is working on (or wants to get started working on) a story they have inside of them. If interested, contact me through Facebook, twitter, or email.
The final thing that you can expect from me is more posts. Yes, this is my commitment that I am going to keep this blog going. I love sharing my stories and insight with you and most of all I love hearing what you have to say. Expect more of my thoughts about parenthood, more about our journey in homeschooling, more about our trips and explorations, and more updates from our crazy family. And I hope you will all keep sharing with me.
I am also planning to give you all some extras with my blog posts. I’m working to develop some printables, tables, charts, and lists that will be available soon. I am an organizational freak and anything that makes my life easier or more organized I am in love with. One of the best things in some of my favorite blogs have been these type of extras. So, I really want to be able to provide them in the future. If you have any ideas of things you would like to see from me shoot me a message.
Thank you again for all your support. Happy Independence Day from my Family to yours
