Since becoming a stay-at-home Mom, I’ve learned so many new things about myself. I have learned how much I truly love the internet and social networking. Moms need an outlet and when your husband, best friend, Mom or siblings are working, turning to the computer is sometimes your only answer.
I’ve also learned how much I enjoy writing. I’ve worked in sales, customer service, finance, etc where I always interacted with people, but I hadn’t realized how much fun it is to write. I recently stumbled upon a wonderful online newspaper site called Examiner.com. I had been blog-hopping and found a post about the site hiring writers for all sorts of topics. I was surprised to see such an array of topics (from nightlife to beauty to sports) available to write about both locally & nationally and after doing a bit of research decided, why not!
Within hours of answering a few questions and providing them an example of my writing, I’d heard back from them. I selected a local position for Stay-at-home Moms for my area. Another passion of mine is couponing, which I have to admit was greatly influenced by bloggers. I am grateful they have inspired me to coupon and I have been doing so ever since! Now it’s time to pay it forward.
