Breast Cancer Awareness, Funds Raised For Cure and Treatment

Most people bring full on awareness of breast cancer closer to October, that is the month of breast cancer awareness, but honestly we should be aware all year long. is a community that raises money for cancer treatments and medical research. There are various clinical trials that you can partake in with as well as ways to donate on their site.  When 90% of all funds donated go directly towards the cause, research and funding to help find a cure, you can rest assured that if you are not taking part in their trials that your money is being placed close to 100% towards what you are donating it for.

There are many trials going on now with such as one trial to help find treatment for pre-clinical heart failure and another for Pacemaker/Defibrillator after Heart Attack. I personally have only known one person with cancer, that was my uncle. They found the cancer so late that there was no cure, no trials, no nothing but letting him rest until he passed away. That was sad. I think that everyone should be more aware of their bodies, get annual physicals and take part in helping to fund research for breast cancer cures and other cancers. This is such an important medical necessity, do not let cancer take over, fight back. At least if you know you fought back all you could, brought more awareness to everyone about various forms of cancer and verbalized your story with the world, then you did all you could do to help save another life from cancer.

Right now, my daughter is dealing with a very close relative of hers being diagnosed with cancer, so this topic is very close to my heart.

October Photo a Day Fun with YesVideo @yesvideo #YesMemory

October is like my favorite month of the year, it’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Fire Safety/Prevention month and it’s my own birthday as well as my daughters. If you want me to be the most happy, check on me in October when Fall is here and leaves are changing colors in NH & falling all over the place! I just love October and so when YesVideo said they were doing a fun #PhotoaDay Challenge in October, I hopped right on that bandwagon and have been sharing photos on Instagram based on their photo a day word.

I thought since I was having so much fun participating that I would share this with you all because it seems everyone loves a good photo, or two! All you do is look at the image above, check which day it is and make sure when you upload to Instagram that you tag the following @yesvideo #YesMemory and #PhotoaDay from there you will see interaction and shares from YesVideo as they check out everyone’s photo a day share!

{Blogging Support} Free Products and Paid Opp’s


The ladies that are part of the awesome blogging support group were discussing product reviews and paid blogging opportunities. This was brought about because obviously I am making money and so are some of the other girls in the group, however, I found out that not all of them are making money but do want to make money. I can’t say you can get rich quick running a blog, but if you keep at it, have a popular niche, are personable and interactive that eventually you can make money from your blog whether it be part time income or full time income. Life is what you make it and so is your blog!

I thought I would take a moment and share some places that offer not only free products but some pretty neat campaigns such as Breast Cancer Awareness Campaigns for the month of October, as it is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. I am proud to be a member of the following places and if you are not a member then I hope you will look into them and see if they are for you:

  • Buzz Cooperative
  • Mom Central
  • My Blog Spark
  • One 2 One Network
  • Role Mommy
  • Team Mom
  • MomDot VIP Forum

I have been a member of the above places for a long time and they come highly recommended. Any of the ones that are paid have been well worth it, but most are free to join. Let me know your thoughts as well as share an others I didn’t list, as I am sure I missed a few! I know I also do Mom Blogger Club Reviews and Paid Posts from time to time as well.

Now for paid posts, there are quite a few places, but I will only include the ones I use the most. I love paid posts opportunities because they usually involve a keyword link which means you can write your blog post the way you want and simply link to keywords! {some of these links may be affiliate links}:

Making money on Twitter: I make revenue on Twitter as well under @brandyellen with occasional sposnored tweets and these are the two main programs I use for that, as they are the least spammy sites in my opinion:

So there you have it, many sites to look into, I am excited to be sharing this and hope it helps not only the Blogging Support Group but others who have been interested in reviews, paid opp’s and more.

Any questions? Feel free to ask. Have another site that has worked for you, please share it below!
