Giveaway Blogger Talk: To Advertise or Not to Advertise, that is the Question

A conversation came up on Facebook the other day about a fellow blogger not receiving thank yous like she used to with winners from giveaways. At first I felt sad because I usually get a thank you from giveaway winners on my blog. Just the other day I received a sweet email from a giveaway winner that warmed my heart and made me sad all at once … While I won’t quote the person exactly without their permission; they informed me that they are one of the furloughed families so to have this prize arrive was a wonderful thing. She […]

Working From Home: My Thoughts and Advice

There are many times when my friends on Facebook ask about my working from home. They love seeing how I get compensated to try new things, to cover events and to simply write working from home. It’s difficult for me to push working from home in any way other than simply being honest. What I do, I have been doing since 2006, granted the majority of what I do to earn income started in 2008. With that being said, this is no quick income money making business, there involves a lot of hard work, many late night hours to meet […]

Thoughts That Come to Mind While Being a Blogger for Near Five Years

In most of my blogging I am pretty open and honest about all of what I have to say, but that doesn’t mean that I “tell all”.  You see, based on experience, once you put something out there in text for someone to revisit or bring back up in a cached or saved version of text, you cannot take it back. There are some things that you simply cannot try to hide or take back after the fact. That is why, while being a blogger, I have been forced to be somewhat honest when asked about certain things because if […]

That Delete Key Has Become my Best Friend

I think of my site as a cute little site that is used to share giveaways, which everyone loves. I also feel it is my personal online space to help share smiles, giggles and shake your head moments. Happily Blended and Moms Vacation Land are just glimpses into who I am as a person, a mother and a woman. There is no real niche here other than a positive parenting, mother of three who knows that ME time is important too. No matter how many times I reply to people letting them know I have an insertion fee, let’s face […]

Implementing New Ad Revenue Strategies as a Blogger

I have tons of workbooks here in my office that were printed off in the past four years of blogging that have not been put to good use. I have looked at them, read them and I get what I need to do to increase revenue with my sites, but sadly at this time in my life I have been put into positions where I simply need to just make money. This means all of my knowledge I have inside of my smart brain is going to waste, well my positive attitude won’t let me think it is truly going […]
