Making Time to Pursue Your Passions & A Giveaway!

*Post contains affiliate links

As moms our plates are so full that often our hobbies, interests, and passions get pushed to the back burner.  It just comes with the territory of being a wife and mom.  

Add in homeschooling or a full-time job outside the home and those “extras” get pushed even farther aside.

How to Make it All Work

When I started blogging several years ago I started solely as a way to keep track of some of the fun things we were doing like field trips or little projects.  I never dreamed blogging would turn into a creative passion of mine. 

I don’t see myself as a writer but more of an encourager.  ”If I can do this, so you can you!” has always been a mantra of mine.  I mean that about every aspect of life, adoption, homeschooling, fitness, and yes blogging!

I was fortunate to be able to contribute to three chapters in the new ebook iBlog:

                           * Marriage and Blogging

                           * Balancing Motherhood and Blogging

                           * Balancing Homeschooling and Blogging

Throughout those chapters I share some tips and tricks that have allowed me to pursue my passions without sacrificing my most important roles as wife, mom and teacher.

Plus, 29 other talented bloggers are sharing their thoughts, tips and experiences.  The ebook is over 300 pages of goodness, you don’t want to miss!!

Nitty Gritty of Blogging

The truth is, blogging, and trying to blog well is hard work!  Anyone who blogs, knows that much thought, planning, and time goes into to doing a job well.  It is a labor of love.

I have even been blessed to turn my passion of blogging {and being a fitness coach!} into an opportunity to earn a bit of income for my family.   I’m thrilled that I can do something I love and get paid for it!  It feels good to contribute to the family kitty too.

If you have ever considered starting a blog about any topic, then this book is a must read.  Don’t waste time making avoidable mistakes, get started on the right foot and use your time most effectively.

I’m excited to be able to offer 3 copies!  {By the way, should you purchase a copy and then win a copy, your money will be promptly refunded.}
