Of Blogs And Purpose

And speaking of other blogs. I was speaking of other blogs wasn't I? I'm maintaining about 5 blogs these days. What was I thinking exactly? Who knows. It started, really, so that this blog would remain a more personal journal and leave the business somewhere else. Since it has always been my intent to make a living online to keep my stay-at-home-mom status I've worked very hard this summer to make a consistent paycheck. It's been quite an interesting journey which includes my freelance writing adventures. At least I've been able to pay all my bills and paid for a nice vacation. So here they are (my other blogs) and the reason for having them.

The Family Book Cellar
: It's where I have all my online programs. I asked the Lord to help me make, at least, $400 a week over there. We're more than half-way towards that goal.

If Mom Had A Blog In 1942: This is mom's story of how the Lord took her through WWII and a civil war. We are very honored to have a small group of regulars over there. They keep me writing. Hope you join us as I introduce you to an extraordinary little girl who grew up in a world filled with wars.

My Dad's Sermons: Dad's blog is actually called "The Pentecostal Journals of W.C. de Quilettes." I've condensed some of his sermons and Bible studies. We'll be adding CDs and DVDs soon. There is a certain responsibility one must own to take on this task.

The Hollywood Moms Report
: Stories, articles, interviews and all our wanderings with my kids who are trying to make it in Hollywood. If we raise them well, with God's guidance, these kids will have a good enough foundation to make it in this industry without "losing" their way.

The Gate Webzine
: Sad to say but I've kind of neglected this one. And would you believe it's my church's webzine? It seems that I'm going to need a little bit of help on this one. Need to promote it at church but I'm on the bottom of the ministry list. No matter--the Lord has perfect timing.

Oh, those blogs. They do fill my days. And happy days they are as well as productive. Take care and I would be very honored if you came to visit.

The Gatekeeper's Shoppe?

Oh, Lady G. I hope you will come and read my Mom's blog. It is a wonderful story of love, hope and trusting the Lord. See you there.She inspires me.

Looks like you HAVE been busy this summer! Five blogs...I have five too! And I have been neglecting them all. Couldn't sleep tonight (might have to do with the fact that both my sons are transferring to Texas) so I snuck out to the workshoppe to do some blogging and try to catch up on some of my favorite blogs!!!

I will be checking out your other blogs soon!

The Gatekeeper said...

Janey, you'll see your sons again. But I do know how you feel. I was a little anxious when my daughter moved out and she was just going cross town--well, at least a couple of towns over. I guess they'll always be our babies.

Naomi said...

Phew! That's a lot of blogs Gatekeeper. I'll have to go over and have a look. I think you do very well to maintain all those blogs! At the moment it takes me all my time to maintain one! I really admire you making a living from your writing. You're so talented. I wish I could do that. It's just so difficult sometimes trying to hold down a full-time job and find time to write.

BTW - Looking forward to receiving your carnival post Gatekeeper. I'd be honoured to receive a post from you. Rest assured you'll be very welcome.

Thanks Naomi. I better get going on that entry for your carnival. I'll do that tonight . . . or tomorrow.
