In most blog tours, a single author appears on a variety of blogs, moving around the Internet and allowing the readers of those blogs get to know the author.
In the Merry-Go-Round Blog Tour, the authors stay on their blogs and it's you, the reader, who takes the tour.
Each month, our participating authors from around the world agree to blog on a single topic throughout the month. By following the links in each month's post, you'll discover a whole bunch of new authors in a variety of genres, levels of experience, and styles of writing.
We hope you enjoy the trip and come back each month for a new spin around the globe.

The Balancing Act
It’s a pretty sure bet that we all balance our workload with life. Everyone who’s ever “worked for the weekend” is aware of the vicious cycle we’re drawn into when we hold down full-time jobs and still desire to spend time with loved ones. (It’s the American Dream, go figure.)
You slave away for the boss to collect that check. You pay your mortgage or rent and have a little extra to get the oil changed or buy a DVD to watch with the family. Vacations, birthdays, holidays all revolve around work.

Balance is something I think we all struggle with, whether we write or not. The very fact that our time in this world is limited means we must make choices and prioritize.

(An analogy I first heard from one of my work supervisors.) If you haven't seen plate spinning, it's a pretty amazing feat. (Read more here. . . )
