Hi there, folks!
First of all, let me apologize for not including an actual pic of myself... my photos never seem to come out right online! I think the whole thing would probably work a lot better if a woman had invented it :)
My name is Donna and I'd like to welcome you to my blog. Being a stay-at-home mom is the hardest, yet most rewarding job in the whole world. As much as I love my life and family, my days can get really stressful at times.
A couple months ago my family was confronted with some challenges which took such a toll on me, the glue that holds the entire household together, that I almost had a nervous breakdown. Desperate to avoid sinking so low, I turned to writing in my journal - something which I loved to do as a kid. It's the perfect emotional outlet for me, allowing me to express my feelings freely and privately, whilst de-stressing and uncluttering my mind to the point where I can think deeply and clearly.
This gradually evolved into my "Weekly Mental Health Day". It's one day a week when I take a couple hours out of the day to focus on me and my needs. After all, everybody needs some "me time", especially us full-time moms. At first I felt a bit guilty for even thinking about doing it, but when I saw how beneficial it was for me and the positive effect it had on my relationship with my husband and kids, I knew that I was doing the right thing.
In fact, this WMHD [copyright 2015 :) ] initiative has led to such personal fulfillment that I felt compelled to share it with other homemakers (and stressed-out nut cases) out there. I mean, surely other moms must be going through the same emotional conflict that I was! And what if they don't like writing - these women really need my help! Not only did I want to help them keep their sanity, but I thought offering an opportunity to win some extra pocket money would go even further in relieving their stress.
So here we are, with the first edition of Glorious Giveaways. This is a weekly blog which highlights issues related to stay-at-home moms whilst offering coupons, Amazon gift cards or Paypal cash giveaways every month. So even if you're not interested in the written material, you can try your luck in the contests. There's 1 entry per person per contest, with 1 winner who will be notified via e-mail and this blog. I will also post the results on my Facebook page and in my Twitter account (#glorious_giveaways). I'm currently working on my Pinterest boards and Instagram page.
It's important that you check social media regularly for contest news because, though notified directly via e-mail, the winner will have only 14 days to claim his/her prize. After that, it will be forfeited and another winner will be chosen at random. Now we all know how cluttered our e-mail inboxes can get, so do yourself a favor and follow the contest on social media.
Be sure to like me on Facebook and follow me on Twitter. Tell your friends and relatives - I'm sure you could all use the money, right? ;)
Thanks for your interest and I hope to see your name in the winners' circle!
