Establishing a love of reading can be tricky sometimes. Children who would rather run around and be active physically may not see the "fun" in exploring through a story... at first. The key is to choose books that speaks specifically to their interest and personality. Allow them to select which books stand out to them - superheroes, all things locomotives, comedies, comics, holiday themed, etc. As they become excited about what they're reading, they'll want to do it more!

Okay, it may not always work as planned, depending on your audience. But I can tell you it will make your headline click-worthy. It doesn't have to be graphic either, by the way. Just suggestive. =)
PR is EXPENSIVE so anything you can do on your own to generate buzz will reduce your burn rate. You can pitch editors yourself but if you don't have a hook, they don't have a story. The surest way to get a response is to give them the whole setup. If you can't hook an editor, you won't…Continue

Argh. Sooo challenging...and so permanent. It needs to be just right.
Identifying your "brand" is kind of like going to college, where the goal is trying to figure out what you want to do with the rest of your life. But at eighteen, who really knows THAT?
You have to pick a major but what are the odds that in a few years you'll even be interested in pursuing a career in the field? Your scope of interests expands, you identify and refine your skill sets, you…Continue

It's about that time. The Sexy Single Mommy is expanding. Although I have only been at this since May, I have decided to do some things differently, so I am looking for contributors.
Many of you have some great blogs and have a niche for different subjects. Even if you are not a "blogger," I am still interested in what you can contribute. The subjects that I am looking for are: Dating & Relationships, Parenting, Health & Beauty (which includes fashion),…

I have just celebrated my last birthday in my, ahem, later 40′s and I have come to realize that I am definitely looking my age. Which I have no problem with – really – as long as I “age gracefully”, I am happy with the way I look. I can truly embrace my wrinkles but, at the same time, I still do want my skin to look as healthy and toned as possible without resorting to “procedures”.…Continue

The author, Katie Drummond, attended a Healthy Living Summit, that is hosted by six female, premier health, diet, and fitness bloggers. It seems, rather than showcasing these women's drive to spreading the…Continue

I am often asked by those behind me in the check out lane, "Where do you find all of those coupons?" It seems like an easy question to answer, but really I could spend 20 minutes going through all the ways one could find coupons. Because so many people, especially those new to couponing, think that the Sunday paper is the only place to get coupons, I thought I would compile a list of great ways to get coupons other than the Sunday…Continue

Babies, babies and more babies grace the inside pages of People Magazine. My guess is, it’s one of the hottest issues of the year. And not because of Sarah Palin, although she’s very interesting indeed. It’s because these aren’t normal babies, they are celebrity babies! Which leads me to a simple question, why are we so doggone OBSESSED with celebrities and their babies and their baby bumps?
