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 […]

Building Websites for Free

When I first started off in my venture of working from home, I knew I had to have a website. Working from the privacy of your home is fantastic but you have to be sure that you have all of the tools for maximum success, one of those tools would be a website. The fantastic news is that, and I found this out many moons ago, you can use a free website builder to get your website up and going! I had little clue as to what website building entailed, basically I did take an advanced computers course in high […]

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 […]

Why I Think it’s Bad News to Share your Blog Rates

I am a part of many communities that bloggers unite together in support of each other. In some of these communities, bloggers share opportunities for each other to make more money or to review fantastic products as well as host giveaways. While I am all for the blending of bloggers together in a supportive community, I think of blogging communities as that of a normal work environment. If I were working in an office outside of the home then my rate I get would not be something open for discussion and in most cases I could get fired for sharing […]

I Can Always Count on these Three Top Commenters

Every day new articles go on site here as well as MomsVacationLand.com, and each time a new blog posts goes live, I can count on a handful of people who will leave me some comment love. These three people are blogs that I enjoy reading and I always leave them comment love in return, something I try to be really good about with anyone who comments here on site. I know each time I schedule a new blog post that I can be prepared for the kind comments of Mail4Rosey and Masshole Mommy because they are the top two people […]

I Never Had That Thought of What If With Blogging and Vlogging

I have random conversations with people about blogging and vlogging (video blogging) because after all so many want to know what it is I do to work from home while raising three kids. I am not rich, I do not get huge search engine traffic just yet, but I do earn a decent revenue from my blogs and videos to survive.  I would never tell another person they are going to live lavishly on a blog income, but some do. You can succeed if you put your mind to it and devote time to creating good content, or like me […]

Why Do I Blog, What are My Goals?

Welcome to my first time participating in a blog hop with MomDot and other fabulous bloggers. This week we are talking about blog goals; why is it we started blogging in the first place and what are our goals? Why Did I Start Blogging? Back in December 2008 I had just had enough with direct sales, sure I was great at it, sure it was fun but I preferred to lead a team rather than sell random items to others. The problem was, this just wasn’t me any more. I knew there had to be more out there for me […]

How Would I Use $750 to Grow My Blog?

The question has been asked by the National Association for the Self Employed (NASE), they want to know “How will you use $750 to grow your blog?” and my answer is this; When I started this blog it was a venture into the unknown, a friend from my direct sales days became more like a sister to me and encouraged me to get into this Mom blogging world as a means to make some extra income and meet amazing people.  Since December 2008 I have changed the name of this blog once and grew it to nearly 2,000 subscribed readers […]
