Bloggers Needed!

One of the main goals of Life After 5 is to see what other bloggers do when they aren't working their 9-5 Jobs. With that being said, let me present the first guest post calendar! 

As you have noticed there are lovely Red words in the calendar (provided by the lovely Emily). These are the topics that I would like to have different bloggers write about for the month. Those who post monthly will have their beautiful button/logo displayed on my sidebar. 

Your Choice are posts that you want to write about. If you want to give blogging tips, share your favorite food or drink recipe, how to's, fashion posts, or review a place in your city and town. The only items that are off limits are religion, politics, and sex; all of which destroy even the strongest of friendships.

To sign up, just go to my sponsor page and "purchase" the spot labeled Monthly Authors. Be sure to let me know what topic you would like to write about. 
 What topics do you think I should include?

It's a Lifestyle

When I first thought of the Life After 5 Blog, I thought that there would be a simplicity in setting it up. After all I have one blog up and running, I should be able to set up a second one easily. It didn't phase me how much time that had I spent setting up my first blog, until I tried to cram it all in a week. 

It's not as easy as it looks! 

Needless to sat there is still a lot that needs to go into this little blog, including the social media icons and sidebar tools, more pictures, and the sponsorship page. 

As I plan out what posts I want to do and when I want guest posts to launch, I realized that blogging isn't a hobby. The planning, effort and love that we put into each post is much more than a hobby. Every portion of my day is spent trying to wonder how I could blog about something. I take multiple pictures of every event so that I have a selection to post. My email is bombarded by updates and newsletters so that I can  keep up with the Jones; and friends relish in the idea that you all are going to the newest restaurant find, because they know you are going to blog about it. 

I have learned that blogging is more than a hobby for me, it's a lifestyle!
