The Underground Railroad children's book, The Golden Pathway runs through Blog Jog Day

Welcome to Blog Jog Day and my blog The Golden Pathway!

Please enjoy my site then click over to to see what the next Blog has to offer! Lost in the links?

You can always go back to the main Blog Jog Day Blog at and find a new link to jog from. Thank you for stopping by my site!

As promised on Friday here are the two contests in celebration of Blog Jog Day:

First contest:

The Golden Pathway e-book giveaway and as an added bonus The Golden Pathway Educator's Guide PDF. A $20 value.

Be transported through time to the Underground Railroad, where high-pitched screams echo each night. David’s cruel Pa always chooses the same victim. Despite the circumstances during slavery, David uncovers the courage to defy his Pa.

Raised in a hostile environment where abuse occurs daily, David attempts to break the mold and befriends the slave, Jenkins, owned by his Pa. Fighting against extraordinary times and beliefs, David attempts to lead Jenkins to freedom with no regard for his own safety and possible consequences dealt out by his Pa.

The Golden Pathway Educator's Guide is a comprehensive across the curriculum based teaching tool for English, Social Studies, Math, Science, and Art teachers, as well as Homeschooling families. The PDF guide is 25 pages. 

Second Contest:

Dynamic Media Release Services - one free media release written and distributed to five on-line media release sites. A $60 value.

You’ll discuss your good news and happenings to get a clear indication of your direction. Your valuable information will then be written into a dynamic media release and provided to you for your networking purposes. Even if you don't have publishing credits under your belt or even if you aren't a writer, announcing guest interviews or your topic of choice will help draw traffic and recognition to you and your blog.  

All you have to do is: 
  • Leave a comment (be sure to leave your email) and indicate which contest you would like to enter or both.
  • Become a follower (be sure to leave your blog address so I can follow you back) at The Golden Pathway blog. 
One winner per contest. Winners will be announced Wednesday, August 10th.
Be sure to follow along on Blog Jog Day to: Laurie Soileau, Life/ADHD Coach ~ offering coaching sessions via telephone as well as in my home office in Nashville, Tennessee. Ms. Soileau's Life Coaching practice is geared toward adults age 35-50 who want to move past specific challenges and live the life of their dreams.

I look forward to your visit.
