Teachable Scotts Tots Homeschool Is One Of The Top 25 Homeschool Blog Contestants

Vote for my blog!

I recently took part in a contest. Now, I'm not one to enter contests. It has a lot to do with my lack of ability to trust that I actually have a shot at winning something among many other entrants. But, this contest was different. The prize? A writing position for a parenting blog. They pay would allow me to go from writing 80 articles a month to writing only 8 and receive the same pay. So, I entered.

I was quite pleased with my essay. I actually fired it off in a matter of minutes late one night when the kids were in bed and the house was quiet so I could think and gather my thoughts well. I was pleased and entered. Then, the work began. The goal was go gain the most comments on essay. There was a total of 122 contestants. I began begging my friends. To my surprise, most everyone was overly helpful in wanting to help support me. In the end, I came up with 189 total comments and likes putting me in 7th place out of 122. Not bad for my efforts.

I learned one thing from my work - I will never run for a public office. I do not know how the contestants handle the campaigning. So, what am I doing entering another contest? I'm not sure. All I know is I need to spend time with my children. I love to write, and my family absolutely needs a paycheck of some form. So, I keep plugging away. I noticed that there was a blog hosting a Top 25 Homeschool Blog contest. Well, I can't help the timing. But, I happen to be proud of my blog. What I don't like, I change. Ultimately, I aim to encourage all who read it. If I fail at this, I have not done my job as a writer or as a Christian encourager.

So, if you still have a click left in your fingers, please consider voting for my blog:

  1. Tere, Thank you so much for all your positive energy during the contest. In a way, it was such a stressful and nerve-wracking experience, but I was constantly inspired by your good mood. =)

    Is it true that you would have made the same amount of money writing 8 articles for MomSquawk that you would writing 80 now? Have you tried applying to wiseGEEK, Demand Studios or Bright Hub? Let me know if I can help you out in any way, so that you can live your dream at home with your children. =)

    Let me know if you need help gathering votes for this contest!

  2. I will have to read a little more into your blog once I catch up on following everyone! LOL
