Guest Posting Galore!

While my posts have been sparse over here, I have been blogging up a storm in other places! Check me out at these awesome blogs:

I wrote a guest post for Dominica Malcolm on juggling writing with caring for kids. Some of you know one of my other jobs is nannying, and this post comes from my experiences last summer when I was full-time nannying for Glo-Worm, a lovely little girl who was a year old at the time. Check it out here.

I’ve been writing for EiEiHome, a site that deals with design, contracting, and home repair. I’ve got a few articles up for perusal, and you can find them here, here, and here.

I’m over at Tales of an Unlikely Mother, guest blogging for her Nanny Nook tab. This has been a lot of fun, and I’m really grateful for the exposure!

And I’ve got a guest post coming up soon at A Boles Undertaking next month. I’ll link it here when it happens; meanwhile, go and check out her Storytelling Series because it’s amazing.

I am very open to guest posting on anyone’s blogs on the subjects of social justice, writing, nannying/children, and more. I’m also opening up the opportunity to guest post here on The Stretch For Something Beautiful – if you have a good idea and want to blog about it, let me know and I’ll slot you in! Just comment here or email me at

  1. I’d be interested in doing a guest post on writing, but I’m so new to blogging (and also writing) that I’m not sure I’d have anything useful to say?

      1. Hm… I’m trying to figure that out. Here are things I think about a lot with my writing.

        – Character building (I think it’s a strength)
        – World building (Better at it in my head than on paper)
        – Plot (This the hardest thing for me, keeping it paced correctly)
        – Parts of my psyche that my characters represent, writing as trauma therapy, blah blah blah (most of that’s kind of personal and I’m not sure people would want to read about it).

        Anything strike your fancy? Need me to be more specific? I think most writers think about all of those things a lot.

        Oh, and another thing is being honest in my writing as opposed to making it pretty (although ideally, it’s nice if you can have both).

      2. I love the idea of writing as therapy. I’ve talked about it a little, but I think I’d love to hear about how it’s good and bad for your psyche. No one really touches a lot on that besides “writing is therapy”.

        I have someone posting next Thursday, do you want to post next week or the week after?

      3. Hm, I guess the week after next? Hopefully that gives me enough time to write it and doesn’t just make me write it the day before it’s “due”.

      4. The week of the 9th is perfect, and whichever day is better for you works fine for me. Just let me know so I can put it in my calendar. šŸ™‚

  2. Can’t wait to see what you’re sharing on Mel’s series! And I’d like to do a guest post for you at some point, if you’d like (and I’d love to have you guest on my blog…once I resurrect it…). I was thinking of sharing something about my two wildly different career experiences with children so far: those in the foster care system vs. the much more fortunate souls at the school I work at. It’s taught me a lot more about having patience, and trying not to “fault” children who’ve had relatively easy lives…that’s what they’re used to, there’s no changing it. You just learn to work within the confines and hope you’re teaching them well.

      1. Thank you! I’ll let you know, I suppose? Perhaps sometime in early June, methinks. PS – I’m planning on emailing you sometime soon to learn a little more about how your self-publishing experience went/answer done basic qs for me. šŸ™‚

      2. Sounds great, how about Thursday, June 7? Trying to put together an editorial calendar. And email away šŸ™‚ I’m always glad to hear from ya!

  3. You are really having fun, I wish I could do likewise. Will surely create some time in the future. Not competing but learning point…Lol

Tell me what you think!
