Blog at Home Mom- Review

Well, you all know that I've been trying to get back on my blogging game- get more serious and make a real go of this thing. My blog is getting professionally designed and I feel like I'm becoming a real blogger- or at least a more deliberate one. However, despite my recent upswing in motivation and inspiration I've still been lacking some of the application- aka “How can I really get the blogging done?”

In the midst of my little struggle I heard about Christin Slade's new ebook- Blog at Home Mom- Balancing Blogging and Motherhood. Ding, ding, ding! We have a winner! I knew I needed it! I needed someone else to help guide me through the challenges I've been facing and help me bring my blogging aspirations to fruition.

So I emailed Christin last week to see if I could review her ebook and she happily obliged! I was thrilled! I downloaded it immediately and began reading, and from that excitement I'm eager to share about this book with you today, on its release date!

What I found in her book-

  • 8 short chapters
  • Real Mom-blogger testimonials and tips
  • A Biblical foundation
  • A mom who, like the rest of us, has a lot to juggle and had to find a way to make it all work

Christin offers many new ideas along with good reminders of things I've heard before. I very much enjoyed how the book was broken into small, easily digestible and applicable pieces so that I could jump right into action, such as-

  • Keep God First
  • Honor your husband
  • Build a schedule/routine that works for you and your children
  • Prioritize
  • And much more.

I could so relate to her description of how a day without a plan falls into place, or rather, falls apart. She offered me a healthy dose of good old-fashioned conviction to get my rear in gear and be purposeful in my days- with everything, not just blogging. Her examples were eloquent and timely and nice to hear from a fellow mom in the trenches.



Your Purchase Will be Used by God

More than just the great information in this book, however, I also have to mention what the purchase of this book is going to help fund- the bringing of two children into the Slade home. Christin and her husband are currently trying to raise the funds for an adoption and you could be a small part of it! I mean, how cool is it that we can help this family do the Lord's work and then also have the privilege of following the story on Christin's blog?! I think it's pretty awesome!

The Long and the Short of it-

I think that you will find this quick read as beneficial as I did, and seeing as how we aren't that far into the new year yet, there is still plenty of time to put these principles into practice and make 2013 a year for the history books! Plus, you'll get to help provide a loving, God-filled home to two orphaned little girls! That, my friends, is worth every penny! You can pick up Blog at Home Mom right here (also available for kindle and soon Nook).


Are you needing extra encouragement and guidance in how to make your blogging happen right now?


Christin provided me with a free copy of her book in exchange for honest review, at my request.
