Writing Around the Block

Hello blog loves,

Today I'm very excited to share the news that I'm the newest staff blogger at Military OneSource's Blog Brigade! If you'd like to check out my first post on Blog Brigade about navigating the job market as a military spouse… I'd be tickled pink. :-)

So, you know my priorities: 1.) Family, 2.) Career, 3.) Everything else… and I'll just say that "Career" has been keeping me quite busy lately. At night after working social media all day, I'm usually working on graphic design… lately, it's been wedding invitation suites and my blog's redesign! I'm making the move to Wordpress, and it's a big ol' switch. As soon as it's ready, I'll be sure to share.

I'm also partnering up with Sarah over at Life, Comma, Etc. to work on my family budget a la Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace University. Sarah is already ahead of me (I'm always a few weeks late), but I'm starting over with Week 1 this weekend. I'm a girl that likes to spend, so this is a very welcomed project to learn to control my… um… "retail therapy" addiction. More to come.

One more thing! The Blog Brigade always has a blog call for military spouse guest bloggers! The topics change a couple times a month. From now until Monday, the blog call topics are Adjusting to Family Life After Combat, Moving Goodies You Can't Live Without, and Creating a Sense of Community. So start writing away and submitting your posts!

Oh, and make sure you really read the guidelines. For example— you can't self-promote, you can't link to any websites that aren't .gov, .usa, or .mil, and other important things like that. After all, it's for a government website. Which, might I add, will also look great on your resume? Go forth and write pretty things.
