2019 1Q Income Report #ThePublishedParent #HomeschoolingWAHM

Writer friends, the McLoughlin household is healthy and happy and ready to head into Q2 2019 and I wish the same for you!

I am still blessed to be able to work from home proofreading, blogging, writing articles, and writing books and to be able to do it in my sweatpants or swimsuit, out on the deck or at the dining room table, at my house or traveling with my kids and husband for his work to places like Wyoming, Arizona, Texas, Chicago, Florida and more.

I like to share my income with you to show you that I am a real person with real challenges and successes. No, it is not a full-time income, but I am not aiming for that. I am thankful and grateful that my husband has a good job, and my main job is homeschooling. Words are my part-time job for now. When the kids are grown I foresee working more hours with my word career and helping to pay for travel and retirement. But that's at least 10 years away :-)

First quarter 2019 went well. We had a lot of snow days, so I was able to pick up extra proofreading jobs. I didn't have time to focus on the creation of more books, but I did still work a bit on the Busy Parents on the Go Cookbook and Homeschooling with Less Stress and More Fun. Articles took a backseat. Homeschooling, proofreading, and running a household took priority this quarter. We'll see what 2Q2019 brings. See you back here in July!
