Today I’m on my way bright and early to Charlotte, NC to the Financial Bloggers Conference. The schedule is super jam packed, even more so than last year, and I’m excited to be there as a speaker this time around talking about – what else – freelance writing online.
The Financial Bloggers conference, better known as FinCon, is like a huge reunion. I’m looking forward to seeing all the people I work with every day in the flesh. There are a handful of bloggers who I am in contact with daily, and it’s always fun to catch up with my fellow self-employed hustlers in person.
This is one of the most hectic weeks we’ve had in a long time. The hubs just submitted 176 residency applications to programs all over the country. It’s super exciting and a little scary. It’s been a grueling 5 years for him, and he’s worked so hard. It all really comes down to this so over the next few days and weeks we’re hoping he gets some interview offers so he can secure a job next year (and all the years after that!)
In addition to the hubs’ applications and preparing for FinCon, I’ve been shouldering a lot of the parenting responsibilities as hubs is on an intense rotation this month where he has to be at the hospital at 5:30 in the morning and isn’t getting home until 6:30 or so. My in laws are here again as reinforcements to help with the madness while I am away at the conference.
I know the next few months will continue to be hectic as the hubs and I battle sometimes conflicting schedules, but we wouldn’t have it any other way. After all, what’s life for if you’re not pursuing what you love?
With all that said, here are a few posts from around the web:
