This fall, I also took on a lot of freelance work, probably much more than I should have. I paid the price in lost time with my family, and my blog paid the price in infrequent, haphazard blog posts.
I’ve given a lot of thought about what direction I want to take Mom’s Plans in 2015. This blog started as a frugality blog, then morphed into a finance/get out of debt blog, then somewhat into a health blog, and finally, into a homeschool blog.
I feel a little dizzy just writing all of the many different directions this blog has gone.
Still, all of those areas interest me, so I want to incorporate them into Mom’s Plans in 2015.
The plan is to have one of each type of post per week in 2015:
A health post–This may be a healthy recipe we’ve made, an update on our health status, or a healthy change or habit we have.
A homeschool post–Homeschooling started as an experiment last year. We didn’t know if we’d only do it one year or longer. However, we love it, so we plan on homeschooling for the long haul. (It will be another 14 years until Cuddle Bug graduates.) I plan to write at least one post a week about homeschooling–whether that is a weekly wrap up, a peak into our day, or an activity that worked for us.
A finance post--I still love finding new ways to live frugally, so I plan to share finance posts. I plan to reprise our debt repayment monthly posts, and I may also reprise our monthly budget posts. I’ll post on other finance topics, too.
Menu planning–I depend heavily on menu planning, so I’ll still be posting our weekly menu plan. In addition, I’m including a new feature to our menu plan–our weekly grocery shopping. This will help keep me accountable and on budget. (At least that’s the plan.)
Freezer cooking–Many of you have asked about freezer cooking posts, so I’ll also be writing about that occasionally.
Book reviews–In 2015, I want to bring more balance in my life, and one of the ways is to find more time to unwind and relax. I plan to continue reading a book a week, and I’ll write a review of each book once a week on Mom’s Plans.
Finally, I’m returning to the Review Crew in 2015, so you can also expect some reviews of great homeschool products.
I’m still planning my editorial calendar, so I’d love to hear from you. What else would you like to see regularly published on Mom’s Plans?
