Taking Time off for Maternity Leave

in life

You may remember that I was recently seeking guest post contributions for when I take some time off to have our second baby. The time has come for me to begin my maternity leave, as I’m days away from having our baby boy join our family.

For the next month or so, you’ll be treated to a variety of guest posts from writers you may already know and others you will be reading for the first time. They have all contributed wonderful posts on numerous topics, such as managing the busy holiday season, tips for working moms, and perspectives on parenting and Latino culture. You’ll definitely want to stay updated and read what they have to say, explore their own blogs/sites, and show them some love.

I also have some of my own writing lined up to be published in between guest posts and there will also be a couple of giveaways coming. Don’t forget that I’ll still be active on Twitter and Facebook, though maybe less often. But, I know I’ll be connected, so be sure to keep up with me there.

I look forward to taking some time off to enjoy our family’s new addition. I think every parent can say the same when a baby arrives.

I hope you all have a wonderful holiday season and New Year’s. See you in 2011!
