Mommy's Articles Published in CozyCot.com

Somewhere towards the end of year 2010, CozyCot.com, an online women's magazine based in Singapore, contacted Mommy to invite Mommy to be one of their guest writers for the Motherhood section. Mommy accepted the invitation and so far, Mommy had contributed two articles to CozyCot.com. CozyCot.com would give Mommy a topic to write about and of course the deadline to submit the article. Of the two topics given so far, Mommy always end up scratching the head as to what to write about the topic because somehow, the given topics don't seems to 'click' well with Mommy. Because of this, Mommy always end up writing and submitting the articles at the very last minute. For that, Mommy must thank Mommy's 'last-minute' lucky stars for always being able to spring an idea on how to approach or write about the topic that didn't seems to 'click' well with Mommy at first.

The first topic assigned (in January 2011) to Mommy was about pregnancy fitness. Mommy isn't one person so keen on exercise and fitness to begin with, so Mommy finally came up with Mommy's anecdote called "Confessions of a Fitness Non-enthusiast", which was published on 4th March 2011. The second topic assignment on children's party only came in early March 2011 and the deadline was 21st March 2011. But Mommy remembered submitting the article only on the 22nd March 2011 (as usual, the inspiration to write only came in on the deadline iteself!). So that's how Mommy's second article called "Children's Pseudo-party Ideas (for Parents Who Are Not That Into Parties!)" came about and was published on 25th March 2011.

Happy reading! ^_^

Wow! A celebrity!!! Bet they pay well... Last time, long long ago (80s), I used to write for HER WORLD - the column for public views and opinions called Soapbox...and I think I was paid RM100 or RM150 per article. I'm sure you get a lot more...

Alice Phua said...

Suituapui, oh, no, no, I'm just a voluntary writer which they call as guest writer, so I'm not paid at all. But I'll use this in my day job's appraisal under the extra-curricular section. Luckily my kind of job recognizes this kind of thing in appraisal (even being a committee member of your child's Parents-Teachers' Assoc. also counts as well!), otherwise I won't contribute my writing for free....hehehehe!
