Hey all!


Hi there. I am so excited! This is my first blog post ever. Well, let me tell you about myself. I am a writer who is a mother of three beautiful children and I am starting this blog to get my work out there. I am also looking for freelance writing, but I will have to admit I am not sure how to go about it. I looked online for work, but its either I am not skilled enough or its a scam. Being out of the workforce for over 5 years can put a strain on a person trying to get their foot back in. I am still a stay-at-home mom, but I also want to re-connect with the world. I want to share all my work, because I was not idling all these years. No, I have worked and polished my work, but I will have to admit I am scared. Being out of the workforce and trying something new has put a fear in me.

Why? you ask. Well that’s easy. I’ve put my kids first for all these years and I don’t know how to put myself first. I am afraid of what the world will say when they read my stories as well. I am not a University Graduate and I will admit that I am not the best at Grammar or Spelling, but I do try and read and re-read everything I write as best I can. 

Well the time is now. I am tired of being afraid, so I am doing something I thought I would never do. I am starting my own blog, and hope to go on from there. I will be posting bits of my stories on my blog and would like feedback and hopefully a following of more stories to come. 

Thank You for reading and I hope you enjoy my blog.

PS I am new so my blog may not look the best, but I will work on it to make it better. Thanks.
