Taking A Leap-Guest Blogging

Do you ever do something without really knowing how it will turn out? You may even feel anxious about it? And you might even be pretty sure it will end with nothing happening at all? I know you do. You are a Mom, and/or an Entrepreneur. That is what you do.

Well, last week someone mentioned to me a blog that is getting a lot of attention. It is written by a woman and aimed toward women, and it was featured in The Calgary Herald (as well as other newspapers across the country). She has lots of followers and makes a living from her blog. As a fellow blogger, who would like lots of followers and to make a living from my blog, I couldn't wait to check out her site and steal ideas from her to implement here. ;-)

As it turns out, she accepts ideas from Guest Bloggers. I knew that bloggers generally only like guest bloggers who are well established, but I sent her an email anyway, with my idea. What did I have to lose? She could say no, and I would go back to what I was doing before. But she didn't say no. She loved my idea, and asked me to write it! Yay!

And just like that, here it is.

Thank you so much to Erica Diamond for being supportive and gracious to a fellow blogger, Mom and Entrepreneur. (Check out the rest of her blog, it is fantastic!)


  1. Way to go, Shawna, on taking the risk! So glad for you that it worked out. Great guest post too- loved the ending about being positive and encouraging to one another, supporting the idea of taking a break! I can see your blog taking off.

  2. Great job on the guest post! Not to mention taking a leap of faith and seeking it in the first place! Well done you!
