A call from the Universe? Maybe?

I'm going to take a break from talking about my green journey to talk about my personal journey. I started this blog over summer with the hopes that I would just be able to document the journey of my family from going from big fat wasters to becoming more eco-friendly. I never imagined that months later, that I would be typing that I'm looking for sponsors.

Last week, I counted a handful of people that thought my blog had potential to be sponsored and if I had looked into it. As I realist, I guess I never believed that this would be possible but I just kept running into folks who were reading or saw me present on it telling me get moving - this is real, it's big and it's realistic (to go green gradually).

Being a working mom is tough. Yes, I have the help of my husband but there still is shopping, dishes, laundry, holiday shopping and just taking care of a toddler in general that consume my life after working 40 hours a week. The free time I get during the day is my lunch and after 9 pm when I am just too exhausted to sit down and write. I have a list of things I want to do with my blog (videos, interviews, an original post everyday) and then there are things that I want to do to foster readership (comment on other posts, twitter, get more Facebook followers). I know how to do this as I do this at my day job but applying that to my blog, when do I find the time.

I read Crush It a few months ago and I was a little inspired to possibly wake up early and work away on my blog but then my grandma died and well, I lost my spark. I was still doing green things but I was more exhausted. After speaking last week and inspiring  folks, I think I now believe I can do this. Who needs sleep when you're motivated.

So here it is ... I'm looking for sponsors. I want to have it all. I have a vision on where I want to be a year from now. I know I will be there (that I'm not sharing with you but I have developed a vision board on this).

I won't take just any sponsor. It has to fit with the mission of my blog. And I don't want to be a giveaway blog either. As you can see, I'm still hashing this out.

I'm also not going to quit my job anytime soon. That's the realist in me.

But the first thing to do is tell the Universe which is exactly what I'm doing now.
