As I was leaving my last job, I found that I was going to miss one key aspect of my job – writing posts for the company blog. The blog of a friend of mine caught my eye this summer.
She has been writing for over a year now about her experiences as a first-time mom all the while balancing her job. I loved that she had started to write personally. This week she wrote about a post that she had seen called A Writer Mom’s Balancing Act on Juice in the City, which happens to be the company I currently work for.
Writing is something that I’ve always enjoyed, but it has generally been more of a private endeavor – journaling or assignments for school.
When I see writing contests in magazines like Real Simple, I tend to rip them out, think for them for a bit and eventually convince myself that it isn’t something that I am capable of. Perhaps one day I will find the courage to enter something like that. For now, this blog is my foray into writing. Some weeks I write more, some weeks I write less, but still I write.
