When I first found Christin Slade’s blog, I knew I would glean much from what she had to offer, both in writing and parenting. As a writer and mom, I am constantly looking for ways to balance these two great passions in my life. So when the opportunity arose to review her new e-book, Blog at Home Mom: Balancing Blogging and Motherhood (released today!), I jumped at it.
In 15+ years of writing and 5 years of blogging, I’ve read my fill of become-a-better-writer and grow-your-blog resources. I sincerely hoped Christin’s book would be different, and I was not disappointed.
At 45 pages, this quick read packs quite a punch of practical tips and ideas.
From setting goals, making priorities, and organizing your day to caring for the needs of yourself and your family, Christin gives practical insight into finding balance for a work-at-home mom.
Christin explains that embracing the call to write does not mean neglecting your role of motherhood. Neither does motherhood mean you have to sacrifice your call to write. In fact, when done well, the two can and will complement one another. In Christin’s words,
“Having the ability to live out what God has given me a deep desire for, really empowers me to be a better mom, wife, and all around woman.”
The key is finding balance in the two, and that’s exactly what Christin seeks to do. Through personal examples, she shares how to organize your time and discipline yourself so the two great passions of a writing mom’s life can live together in harmony.
While specific to blogging, the tools laid out in this book will easily apply to any working mom. Whether you’re a blogger, a photographer, or a Mary Kay representative, you will find something here for you.
