So, my friends over at http://www.blog.parentbloggers.com/ have issued a challenge to me to blog about getting my life together in 2009. Wow, just writing 2009 seems crazy. Wasn’t it just 2000??
So, 2009 will either be the start of my at-home blogging/reviewing/writing career or the end of it. I really need to start making some money with this gig. My husband is patient with me, but how long will that last? I don’t know. I really don’t want an outside the home job as I don’t want to put my younger two in afterschool care. There is nothing wrong with afterschool care, it is just that I have avoided paying for daycare for 13 years. I don’t want to have to start paying for childcare.
For the final blast of 2008, http://www.blog.parentbloggers.com/ teamed up with BigTent, the online home for trusted groups. BigTent hosts nearly 1,000 parent-led groups – including play groups, moms clubs, group blogs (like the Silicon Valley Moms) and even PTAs – on a completely free and easy to use web platform. Leading these groups can be a three ring circus – but BigTent simplifies group management while providing a one stop shop for everything members need.
BigTent is partnering with Compass Life and Business Designs CEO and founder, Kimberly Fulcher, to offer a special “Get your act together for 2009? promo. For any group leaders who start a group on or move to BigTent by December 31, Compass will provide a free one month membership ($19 value) to Compass Coaching Network, and all new group leaders will be entered in a grand prize drawing for a “Life Makeover” private coaching series ($1500 value). Groups must be of at least ten members. Now that’s a great way to start off the new year!
