Thanks Blia. I'm not so new to book reviews since I review for Thomas Nelson Publishers and a few others. I read a book and write very honestly how I feel(felt?). But, i'm new to reviewing home based businesses/ work at home jobs. I only provide information so that moms who may be searching can make an informed choice.
I'm looking for moms who work from home to be guest bloggers, sharing what they do at home, how they started,etc......

thanks for the CC tip, I'll post what I find here.

Thanks for your friends invite Theo. I haven't done much with that products review group though. I really don't know how to even start doing one. I might have to rely on you for some guidance on that end. Anyway, I've heard of constant-content but have not written for them before. I would suggest to do a Google scam search on them and see if there are any complaints.

Thank you Theo. I left a comment on your post on Tiger Woods too. I think that you raise some very interesting questions in the article.

Hi Blia,

Your "People Spirit" post was beautiful. You have your mom's gift for telling great stories too. I hope you publish a book someday soon.

Hi Swati,
I'm glad you wrote about the topic that you did. I do think that it is extremely important to spend time and cherish the times that we do have with our families, especially our kids. Your suggestions are well taken, and I enjoyed reading the examples that you posted to illustrate your point. Great work as always!

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 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...
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!
