5 + first post: November 2008 I’ve finally jumped on the bandwagon of the blogging world, and, I have to admit, I’m doing it reluctantly and imperfectly. Being a lover of interaction with people, I often wondered how bloggers fit their blogging, tweeting, facebooking, and cyber-interacting into their real lives, especially those who are full-time, stay-at-home with their kiddos types. I can barely finish cleaning up the breakfast dishes, do a load of laundry, or read the newspaper, let alone actually find time to sit down, relax, and read someone else’s blog.... However, I have come to realize that I cannot be an internet and blog-hater for much longer, or I will be left behind, and I refuse to be so. So instead of complaining, I’ve decided to share my world, as nutty and crazy and unorganized as it is, with others, for three reasons: social media mama * amy mascott * teachmama.com

6 + 3 reasons for starting the blog: 1. I love teaching. I miss teaching. But I’m forgetting some really important students. 2. My second reason for throwing myself out there to the sharks is to help other teachers-turned SAHM’s find ways of earning some extra money by launching their own tutoring business. 3. My last reason is that there’s no better way of learning than by doing. So here I am... Maybe you will find humor in the way I fumble with my early-elementary knowledge of websites and weblogs, the way I try to stumble to keep up with the rest. social media mama * amy mascott * teachmama.com
