40ish and beyond... 40ish and beyond...

A shameless brag on myself! ******UPDATE, IM SHAKING!!!!!!*******

UPDI began a media project a few months ago. I guess you could say its an online magazine. It wasnt something I thought of as a money maker but more of a media vent and celebration of parenthood. Im getting ready to go live and I have been really doubting my abilities. Well I just got a letter from our local newspaper publisher who bolstered my enthusiasm greatly.

I had sent him a letter to the editor a long while back about politicians viewing statistics with the blindness to the faces that comprise those very numbers they use to determine funding throughout the year. The newspaper publisher sent me an email asking to publish my letter as an article outside of a letter to the editor and to tell me to pursue writing because he found my work talented. 

(He didnt offer me a job, but I will take it anyway!) 


****I JUST GOT ANOTHER EMAIL FROM THE NEWSPAPER PUBLISHER ASKING IF I WOULD BE INTERESTED IN BEING A FREELANCE WRITER FOR THE PAPER! OF COURSE I SAID YES!******

Thanks Ladies! I really do appreciate the support. If it wasnt for Cafemom I would never have pursued any kind of writing beyond my usual rants and raves. Its your encouragement and suggestions along the way that led me to give it a go. Whether my writing proves of value or not, its nice to have folks you back you no matter what. We are all very fortunate to have this site and that I have you all rooting for me. It means the world!

Do what I did.....get mad and send a scorching letter to the editor of your local newspaper. I thought all I was doing was proving my inability to control my opinions. Could work for you too!

Luv Ya Back!

 I am working on a 'mother book'  The Fairy Best Cottage and already have short stoies for children.  Its a re-training our children to do the right thing and participate as a member of the family....These are gauged for 1-3 reading and I am using site words that these three grades will be tested on later in the schooling process.....

They are age and school appropriate and working with local school principal regarding the 'site words' that OUR local kids will need to know....

I'm into extended projects and keep busy plugging along so when its all done I can share the great news.....40ish is my home for now and it lets me learn and share honestly what I think about,feel about,do about and on and on....

Part of a Sisterhood is to love and share with your sisters all the time and this open line allows us all to be on the same page, which makes 40ish and beyond an awesome place to go for support....your sisters love ya bunches
