How to Start a Mom Blog (or any other niche blog)


If you follow my blog or fan page, you know that I have been working from home as a freelance writer and blogger for over 4 years. Over the years, I have had a lot of people send me private messages asking me how they can start a blog and even earn extra money from it. Though I would love to be able to help everyone, there are only so many hours in the day. Besides, I'm honestly not a blogging expert.   I spend a lot of time trying to learn more about the industry myself and still have a lot to learn. I read books, listen to podcasts, take courses, watch webinars, and network with other bloggers to find out what I can do to improve my blog. I recently came across a blog that BLEW … [Read more...]

Save Money With Groupon Coupons

Save Money with Groupon Coupons

FTC Disclaimer: I was given the opportunity to spread the word about Groupon's mission to save people more money. Though this post is compensated, it is 100% my opinion as a long-time Groupon user.  If you know me, you know that I hate spending money. I. Am. Cheap. Or should I say frugal? However, I do buy things that I need (and some that I just really want). I am also always on the look out for ways to save money on those things. That is why I really love Groupon. I have been using Groupon since 2012. They would often have awesome deals for Vistaprint, which is the company I always used for my business cards. I almost NEVER paid full price for my business cards. Another exciting … [Read more...]

McDonald’s Dessert Menu Combos

McDonald's Dessert Menu Combos

FTC Disclosure: As an ambassador for Central Arkansas McDonald’s, I receive compensation for posts that mention McDonald’s. However, I always share my genuine thoughts with you guys and have no plans to change that. :) I’ll admit, dessert is not an everyday occurrence in our house. Although I love cookies, ice cream, and other sweet goodies just as much as the next person, they are more of a treat than something you have after dinner each night. That’s why when we do have dessert, it’s something that we really enjoy. I will also admit that rather than buying a whole container of sweets (and being tempted to devour them all in one sitting), sometimes we just head to our local … [Read more...]

Is Working From Home Worth It

Most of my friends and readers know that I work from home. Over the years, many people have reached out to ask me a variety of questions about working from home.

Some have even made the attempt. but (for a variety of reasons), opted to return to the more traditional work situation.

2016 Reading Challenge

2016 Reading Challenge

One thing about me...I LOVE to read. Always have. Always will. I am the person that always has at least one book within arm's reach. In my purse. In my car. In the bathroom. There is not a single room in our house that doesn't have a miniature library in it. Sad fact: I haven't been able to read as much as I used to pre-mommy hood. I mean, I read a bit every day. In the tub. That is my "mommy time". But, let's be real - tub time only lasts for 15-20 minutes if I'm lucky. I am determined to change this! At the beginning of the year, I committed to reading 52 books this year. I immediately fell behind, lol. Well, now I am getting back in the game with the Popsugar Reading … [Read more...]
