Not just an awesome band from the ’80s.

Nope. WAHM is how I’m classifying myself these days; a WorkAtHomeMom. After all, watching Clara all day is its fair share of work, not to mention I still do some work for the Fence Company, so I think I qualify. But, besides playing soccer 3 days a week, I’m also making time for fun stuff like writing, for myself mostly, just because I like to.

So, I started another blog dedicated to that task and signed up at Twitter to force myself to write something creative EVERY DAY (you can see my most recent Twitter posts under the slide show to the right). You can be the judge of whether I’m accomplishing that goal. The point of Twitter, if there is one, is to answer their question, “What are you doing?” in only 140 characters, which is about a sentence worth. Some folks answer the question, some ask questions to other folks -their “followers”, and one middle school teacher is using it as a writing tool for his students. I’m just using it for random thoughts that I think I might be able to turn into a more detailed post one day. Most of them I probably won’t ever do anything with and some of them don’t need any more than the 140 characters to say what needs to be said. That’s fine. Whatever. But, I must say, it’s starting to get addictive and it’s a fun challenge to try and say something other than what I had for lunch today.

Back to my writing blog, I wasn’t too sure what I was going to write about at first, but I think it will be a combo of rants on various topics, probably “mom-issues”, expanding or retelling the “stories of my youth“, and my own struggles with personal finance. You may have noticed that a number of the Other Great Blogs I’m Reading on the right there are personal finance blogs, so I’m taking that as a sign that I might have something to say on that topic, although I haven’t just yet.

Might I point out that there are some really great blogs out there and as I find ones that keep me coming back for more, I’m posting links to them on my blogs, so if you have a moment check them out and see if you might find them of interest as well. If you are reading any great blogs, I’d love to hear about it.
