About Me: The Write Balance
Hi, I’m Salma and welcome to my blog, The Write Balance. I started blogging in November 2012. At the time I was living in Winnipeg, Manitoba and working at Breakfast Television as a producer. Becoming a mom overtook my life and I wanted a way to share what I was learning, doing and feeling, so Real Life for Mom (my first blog) came to fruition.
I’m married to a great guy that I met in University and we have two beautiful children, my son who was born in 2009 and my daughter in 2011. After having baby number two, even though I loved my career, I started having second thoughts about going back to work. I felt like I was missing so much in their lives and I wanted to be a part of it all. Another big thing for me is that I wanted my kids raised in a certain way (my way) and for that to happen, I had to be there.
I made a decision to work from home so I could be around for my children, at least most of the time. I started freelance writing wherever I could and The Write Balance was born so that I could continue this blogging journey which I have come to love and hopefully combine it with my renewed writing career.
Today, I am so happy to be doing what I love while still being home with my kids. I do freelance writing, blogger outreach and I’m the Director of Community Relations for South Asian Bloggers Network. And recently we launched an online magazine called The South Asian Buzz. So yes, I am a whole lot of busy but also very happy!
Here you will find posts about Parenting, Kids Activities, Meal Plans to help make dinner easier, Family and anything else to do with life as a mom trying to find balance with the rest of life. Hopefully you find some stuff here that you like and keep coming back for more!
