Believe it or not, my life is more than just boys.
I'm also a nationally-published freelance writer and an active member of Freelance Success, an online community of professional writers. We're a pretty helpful group, sharing everything from editor tips to how-to's. So when one writer suggested a May Blogathon to increase our blogging skills and drive traffic to our blogs, I signed on.
Here's how it works: each blogger who is part of the Blogathon commits to posting daily for the entire month of May. The blog topics vary -- there's travel, self-employment, writing, parenting and food, among others -- but since the authors are all professional writers, I can personally guarantee a high level of writing at each and every blog.
The complete list of participants is below. I encourage you to stop by and say hi!
