Quick Update

you-can-do-it

Hey, everyone!  I know, I know…I haven’t posted anything in a loooong time!  I’m so sorry!  As all of you probably know, life takes over, especially when you have kids, and there’s not much time to do anything for yourself.  I’ve been so busy I had actually forgotten I started this blog for a couple of weeks.  I do want to update you guys on some things I’ve been doing and give you all hope that you really can be a work at home mom, as long as you’re determined and motivated to make it work.  (And as long as you don’t mind never having time to do anything else, especially sleeping!)

I think the last time I posted I had just landed a project writing content for a website.  I ended up focusing in on writing content and after I finished my friend’s site, I was contacted by someone else who had seen a post on Craigslist.  I ended up writing 4 different sites for that person (all tow truck related) and then they referred me to some other people they know, and before I knew it, I have been booked up like crazy with just writing about different services.  It’s hard to believe some times!  It still takes me awhile to research the topic I’m writing about, but once I get a good idea, I just run with it.  I write like I’m talking to you guys and it all seems to flow well and every person I’ve written content for has been very pleased.

Now, don’t think I’m making big bucks doing this, because I’m not by any means.  I have started charging a bit more than I was originally, but if you do the math and see how many hours I put into each project, I’m not making that great of money, but it’s definitely helping us pay for what we want to do and put a little bit into savings so far.  I’m going to start learning how to build actual websites instead of just writing the content for them and see where that takes me.  I’ve been doing a lot of research on hosting sites and different applications to use, and I’ve got to admit I’m slightly confused at this point, but I’m positive that I can figure it all out.  I just need a little more time…which I’ll probably never find!

Like I mentioned before, there are so many different things you can do to make money while spending time at home with your kids.  Don’t get distracted by chasing down a ton of different opportunities, just focus in on one or two to see if it is a good fit for you and your schedule.  If yes, great!  If not, move on to the next.  You have to get creative with your time and how to fit it all in, but it can definitely be done!  I’ll try to post again soon but can’t promise anything these days.  Just know I’m cheering everyone on, and hopefully you’re doing the same for me!

Gotta run…

Katie
