A few months back while I was traveling to visit Big Miss on her study abroad adventure in Rome, Italy, I received an email inviting me to write a feature piece on my local yoga studio’s blog. The studio had put out a request for contributors through their Facebook page and I had responded with a very brief description of how yoga helped me.
It took a while to iron out the details and to get my mind wrapped around writing the piece. It didn’t help that we were also on summer hiatus and all three daughters were home and none of my “to do” items were getting done. I must have taken some time to write since I received word a few weeks ago that my piece was published on the blog and they want more! Woo Hoo!
I posted it on my personal Facebook page and received such an amazing response. If you would like to read it go to this link (http://gowithityoga.com/blog/).
I worked on this piece for a very long time; it had been in my head for so long and took awhile to refine before feeling comfortable about sharing it with the world.
I took a chance on an online site and was thrilled when it was picked up by one and published (https://medium.com/an-odd-mom-s-world/the-birth-of-joy-65901edc74a4).
I submitted to another publication which has both a digital and print copy circulation and was published in their June 2017 issue (http://tbihopeandinspiration.com/June2017.pdf).
It felt so good to get this piece circulated and out to other readers. As expected, once I was able to get some successes the writing has increased, though not so much on this blog. I hope to improve the frequency of writing here over the next few months and look for some upcoming links to a website my husband and I developed after talking about it for years.
Let me know what you think in the comments.
