Sometimes, I venture outside of Julieverse. Actually, it’s getting to be more and more often that I’m (yay!) handed writing assignments at other websites and I’m thrilled to share highlights with you. My goal is to write about a post a month that leads to outside writing. I’m still a little unsure what to call it. Does Julie outside Julieverse work? Beyond Julieverse? Have an idea for a catchier name? (do share!!)
Here are recent writings outside Julieverse. If they interest you, please head over and check them out.
While helping Big with homework a few weeks ago, I heard my 7th grade English teacher’s voice in the back of my mind, outlawing the word “nice” which inspired me to write a bit of a tribute to him on Rusty & Rosy blog. I’m still tracking down Mr. Bogdan to share my post (and appreciation — I’m sure I didn’t show it through my typical 13-year-old eye rolls) but I’m getting closer to finding him!
A few years ago, Martin Luther King, Jr., Day became the National Day of Service. To help parents learn how to get their children involved I wrote How Children Can Volunteer in their Community for Rusty & Rosy. This post has references and links beyond the National Day of Service and can be referred to year round.
It may be February, but it’s not too late to help your children set goals and resolutions. Goals can be set each month, or even each week, and what’s important are the strategies you use in setting goals. At Marie Callender’s, I explained the important steps of goal setting for children.
I was incredibly lost when I was asked to write about myself recently for a column called “How She Found Her Marbles.” What I wrote turned out to be nothing like I thought it would be. I took a deep inside growth at points in my life and that helped to form me into who I have become. It turned out to be an amazing exercise that helped me look deeper into myself. I invite you all to think deeply and analyze how you found your marbles.
