The Day in the Life of a New Mom

8J6SO4AGN0

The last time I posted a blog entry, it was Anne Frank’s birthday. Nearly two weeks later, I am posting again. Looking back over the past two weeks, I am in awe. Has it really been two weeks? It has honestly went by too fast. I meant to post more frequently this month but between the feedings and the diaper changes and sleeping, I haven’t had the time to log onto my blog and post.

So, this time around, I’d like to do one of those “a day in the life” things. I know that this type of post isn’t anything new. In fact, it almost borders on the cliche and even boring. But, hey I’m a first time mom. This is all new to me.

So, without further ado…

(note: all times are approximate as are feeding & changing times. I feed my baby on demand).

8:00 a.m. Wake up. Change diaper. Feed baby.

9:00 a.m. Put baby to bed.

9:30 a.m. Eat breakfast. This is usually cereal because it is easy to make.

10:00 a.m. Change diaper. Feed baby.

11:00 a.m. Put baby in either her crib or her bouncer. Check Textbroker for any writing jobs.

12:00 p.m. Finish writing assignment on Textbroker. Feed baby. Change diaper.

1:00 p.m. Eat lunch. Usually this is a sandwich.

2:00 p.m. Feed baby.

3:00 p.m. Complete another writing assignment on Textbroker. If there isn’t one, then wash dishes or vacuum.

4:00 p.m. Feed baby. Change diaper.

5:00 p.m. Eat dinner. This is usually a hot meal.

6:00 p.m. Feed baby. Change diaper.

7:00 p.m. Do another writing assignment on Textbroker.

8:00 p.m. Feed baby. Change diaper. Put her in her pajamas. Dim the lights. Start getting her ready for her bed.

9:00 p.m. Watch something on Netflix or YouTube. Like Orange Is The New Black (Love love love the new season that just came out).

10:00 p.m. Feed baby. She falls asleep. Put her in her crib. At this point, I will also go to sleep as well.

2:00 a.m. Baby wakes up. Change her diaper. Feed her.

3:00 a.m. Go back to sleep.

7:00 a.m. Feed baby. Change diaper.

And it starts all over again.

So, that’s basically it.

If you’re a mom, tell me how you spend your days. How’s the mommy (or daddy) life?

 

Freelance Writing: The Beginning

One of my new friends at SNHU changed my life… and potentially my future. She sent me an e-mail, which touched me to the very bottom of my heart. She remarked on my writing skills and suggested that I try ghost writing. She gave me a couple of sites to try. One of those sites was Textbroker.com.

This happened a month ago. A month later, I thought that I would write a blog about it. I’m not saying that I am an expect in this field. What I am saying, however, is that I’d like to share my experience so far and my hopes for the future.

But first, let me give you a brief overview. Textbroker is a content creation site. Writers can submit content. Organizations, groups, and individuals post writing jobs, which becomes available to the wider community at large.

Since joining Textbroker, I have written articles about a variety of subjects. I have written product descriptions. I have written blog articles. I have written reviews about restaurants and events. I have learned about Guinness products, retail positions, home organization, cleaning services, cat play structures, amongst some other topics. I have had to conduct research to learn more about the subject.

I am so thankful that writing for Textbroker is giving me the opportunity to refine my writing and research skills to create search engine optimized (SEO) articles. It’s only been a month and yet I’ve learned so much. I’m doing something that I enjoy — writing — and it’s wonderful. Doing this is giving me more confidence in my writing. I have high hopes for my writing future. I’m sure that Textbroker is the beginning of that long and windy road to publication.
