Hey Swati,
Your post for Working Mother Mag. made a real good read. It is very important to know what to delegate, when to delegate and how to delegate. It had fill as well as feel, same as your blog. Thumbs up!

Hi Jill:
I couldn't resist...I went back in and added a couple of sentences about my daughter into the article :-)! Thank you again for the feedback.

Hi Jill:
You are awesome! Thanks for that feedback - it is so helpful!! I will add more next time about interactions between me and my daughter because I think working moms do want that...I probably went too far to the "work" extreme.
I don't have any freeelancing experience :-) - so I am taking your whole message to me as a HUGE compliment. This is my 1st gig (and it doesn't pay). I'm happy to talk about it though - want to email me at swatibharteey@rcn.com and we can talk?

Thanks for taking the time and looking forward to talking more...

Hello Swati,

I am so sorry that I have been neglect in reading your very impressive magazine article. The holidays are creeping up on me plus I have been in full writing mode leaving not much time for anything else.

I read your article and I loved the concept. It is important to teach others how to use their time management to allow them more time with their children. I have to admit that it is my wish to become a freelance writer and I struggle with the initial moves of putting myself out there. I am afraid that I don't have the journalistic style of writing that most magazines are looking for.

You did an excellent job in presenting a clear and precise solution to an important issue.

Personally??? I would love for you to share more personal detail in your story where you describe the joys that occur between you and your daughter when you go to drop her off but I'm not sure that is what the magazine is looking for. I do not in any way mean to belittle your good writing skills because I think you have a clean and concise writing style, I just would love for you to go deeper.

Also, if you would, I would love for you to shed some light on your freelancing experiences!

Hi Ladies: I would really appreciate some reads and some comments at my latest post at Working Mother Mag when you have a moment...http://www.workingmother.com/web?service=vpage/4856
Melyssa - I loved your post too - but honestly, your writing is incredible and I enjoy ALL of them. It's so impressive how you can do it so frequently and sound so edgy!

Hey Jill,

So glad you came by and that I could assist with the torture.

I find this type of torture to be quite cleansing...ah that's another recent post (-:

I think I might have exploded by now if it weren't for this blog.

Hi Melyssa,

your post opens up a whole new slew of ideas of how I can further torture my husband on my blog. Its funny, lately I have been feeling that I need to pay more attention to his comments so that I can report them with more authenticity since he is the one that everybody really wants to read about.

Thankfully, he doesn't read my posts unless he gets comments from our friends.

HI guys, If I had to choose from the insanity over at my blog, my favorite blog post would be: The Blogging Kingdom.

In its own way, it is a true admission of my severe blogging addiction. Yes, I have a problem. My problem is that I don't have nearly enough time to blog (-:

I love to write and I love to read. Can't wait to check out all of your blogs.

Hi Holly,
I don't have a blogger profile so that's probably why it didn't work :-)! It really is great reading these high quality blogs, ladies.

Thanks for the warm welcome. I read all your comments and I'm glad you all stopped by.

Make it a great day!
