Where to Find Me: May Articles

With the end of school & squeezing in final Girl Scout activities for 2 different troops, I was a bit of a slacker on guest posting. We’re paying my oldest to “mother’s helper” through the summer so I’m actually hoping I’ll be a bit more productive over the next few weeks. I figure she’ll be excited & on top of things at first! The slacking will come later in the summer—on both sides!

I did get a few things submitted at the end of the month, but they’ll be on my June list by the time they get posted. Here are my articles that were published around the web in May:

Balancing Life as a WAHM

When the sweet Katie from Frugal Femina asked me earlier this year to guest post, I was more than happy to help out. She was finishing up her nursing degree, and I remember how hard it was last December right before my own graduation. As a result, I chose to write about how I juggle it all!

Sending a Non-Shopper to the Store

When Shelly from My Coupon Teacher heard that I frequently send the hubby to the grocery store (We’re duking it out to stay Foursquare mayor of our local Kroger.), she was convinced it would never work for her. So, I offered to guest post my tips & tricks for training him!

The ABCs of Dating My Husband

I’m a regular contributor to Blissfully Domestic, but I usually hang out in the Green Living section. Last month, however, the Relationships editor put out a call for posts. I answered with details on the alphabet dating project I share with the hubby.

Are Coupons Really Worth It?

Beating Broke & Inexpensively are side by side through the Yakezie challenge. We’ve decided to band together to increase both are rankings! The first step was a guest post exchange. Since his blog is more personal finance, less deals & coupons, I decided to throw my two cents in on how valuable coupons can really be. His guest post, turned out to be a rebuttal of sorts. Watch for Confessions of a Reformed Coupon-a-phobe later this week!

Fave articles on my other sites

Of course, I’ve been busy with my own projects. The latest project doesn’t require me to blog at all—the girls have their own site! We’re hoping Our Kids. True Story. will provide a fun way to keep their minds sharp this summer. The girls are excited to practice their writing skills even now that school has ended. Still, I have 4 other blogs which require my time on a regular basis. Here are my favorites from May:

This Makes 5

I have been creating websites since 1996 and blogging since 2002. Over the years, my family has expanded, my interests have changed and I have grown (I hope). My personal blog ended up all over the map, depending on who I was or what I was doing at the time. Clearly, I cannot be contained on just one blog!

My different hobbies & parts of me have been divvied up into niche blogs & guest posts all over the web. I needed something to pull it all together. Something that says “This is Me,” thus my newest site was born. I’m not sure how often I’ll blog here—it was created to pull all my other projects into one place—but the option is here if I ever want it.

You just never know what I’ll come up with next!
