A Big Announcement #WorthRevisit

Just over 5 years ago, my first article was published at CatholicMom.com. Since that first “Tech Talk” June 12, 2012, I’ve written well over 500 articles for the website: mainly book reviews, Tech Talks, and recipes for the year-round Meatless Friday feature.

In March of 2015, that volunteer opportunity turned into my dream job.

It’s exciting to be able to work for one of my very favorite websites, and to be working WITH a veritable army of amazing contributing writers.

I’ll still be doing a little writing for CatholicMom, but most of my work is behind-the-scenes. I’m like Stage Crew, but for the Internet: checking props, hauling scenery and signaling the director to bring up the lights and start the music.

Best of all, I’m working from home, which means I can be available for Mom Duty at any time, I can get to daily Mass, and I don’t have to wear uncomfortable shoes. That’s a vocational WIN right there.

I’m very grateful for the opportunity to be a stagehand for a website that’s been a big influence on my life for quite a few years.

CM joins HCFM -f

Yesterday, there was a big announcement at CatholicMom.com: it’s been welcomed into a big family at Holy Cross Family Ministries. Translation: more power for the website, a larger and possibly multilingual international audience, and the opportunity for me to continue doing what I do (within my own time zone, even–I’ve been living in Eastern Time and working in Pacific for over two years)!

I’m grateful for the opportunity to write and work at CatholicMom.com, and I look forward to what the future will bring.

  1. OH MY gosh Barb!! We came to Catholicmom.com THE SAME week! In the same capacity!! You have since knocked it out of the park – on of the best editors I’ve had the blessing to work with. Hmmmm, maybe they will fly you into HCFM Headquarters for a meeting and then I CAN FINALLY meet you!! They’ve made a WISE choice to keep you on – thank you for all you do to help the talented writers of CM support the mission of Catholic Motherhood!!! <3

    • Thank you, Allison! I am thrilled that I get to stay on. I love working with you and all the many CM authors. Everyone is so gifted in unique ways–it’s what makes CM so wonderful. We are trying to schedule a visit to New England, possibly in August, so I’ll keep you posted. I’d love to finally meet you!

  2. This is such an amazing post – to be able to share such exciting, amazing news within a week of your first article!! I am hoping to be able to eventually join the blogging team at CatholicMom, but until then, please know – I love the work you do… as a writer, but also as an editor. Because, you are correct – behind the scenes is where it’s at! And, even bigger win that you can do that from home!!

    Congratulations on such an amazing announcement!

    • Thank you, Anni. It’s been 5 years since my first article and has always been a true pleasure to write and work for CM. I hope we’ll see you among the writers there soon.
