I've been cheating on my blog....

Yes, I have been cheating on my blog. I know she is feeling sad and neglected. It has been a couple of months now since I was faithfully posting on her and sending visitors her way to leave us lovely comments.

You see, about two months ago, I started a new venture that I am COMPLETELY addicted to. It's called Macaroni Kid. Have you seen that name buzzing around the blogosphere. I started seeing it around back in April. I was curious because all these bloggers kept telling me that they were making money by writing a free newsletter.

So I looked into it. Basically, I have the rights to publish the Macaroni Kid newsletter for my community. It is an email newsletter that details all the fun family friendly events going on in our community. I was already doing the legwork by trying to figure out how to get my kids out of the house everyday. Now, I put all the info into the newsletter and spread it around to other parents in my town. Too easy! There is also space in the newsletter for me to write articles about things I care about, just like on this blog.

So, I have been cheating a bit. Do I feel guilty? A little bit. Everytime I log on to the computer to work on my newsletter, I feel a little twinge of guilt for not logging onto Blogger.

But I am LOVING my Macaroni Kid. I have been reaching out to other moms in my town and I am really starting to feel a sense of community that I have been missing. Even though my fellow blogging Mamas are absolutely FANTASTIC friends, I needed something more.

That is where I have been spending my time. I am trying to figure out a way to put some balance back into my life. I really need a create a schedule for myself for when I work on Macaroni Kid and when I work on both of my blogs. Sounds like something I can do in the car on the way to our two week vacation coming up!

If you are interested in publishing Macaroni Kid in your community, feel free to email me (cultivatingrosebuds{at}yahoo{dot}com) any questions you might have!

Hooray for you! Unfortunately, my kids being older this is off my radar. Sounds like fun, though!
