Nobody knows you like Facebook

As previously mentioned, I am not a Facebook user. (And, for the record, I have no problem with people who are avid Facebook users as long as they understand the site's policies.) I know how the site works as I used to have to monitor my company's account. When I did the monitoring, I had lots of internal conversations about data tracking with my bosses. So, I was very intrigued to read how well Facebook knows who you are with just your…

Searching For The Fountain Of Youth???

Okay, so who besides me is sick of getting older???

Getting older means LOOKING older. And even if we can't remedy all the physical ills of aging, there are products that can make us feel more comfortable about our appearances.

I'm always on the hunt for the non-invasive miracle. I've tried SO many products - tools, scrubs, caviar...all with mediocre results. No fillers or surgery to speak of - not really a fan of scalpels or pumping my face full of toxins. But I…

Our Top Ten Posts in 2014

I have to say that when I checked to see what our most popular posts were in 2014 to make a Top Ten Posts list, it was interesting to see what people were relating to the most. It seems like sensory processing is on people’s minds along with social skills and books. We will be sure to add more of those activities and articles next year. Read more and find out what was most popular this year: Mosswood…

Time Management Tips Social Media Moms

I love what I do. I'm a Social Media Mom who has a chance to inspire others online through writing, videos, etc. but I also am a mom. I'm thankful that have the flexibility to be able to watch my kids grow. However, there are times when the business world and the family world collide. Here I am left wondering if I'm giving enough to each. That's where time management of my time working at home becomes so important. That way I am able to give dedicated time to my work but I'm also not missing…

To Boost Or Not To Boost

I'm not a Facebook guru, by any stretch.

My fan page confuses the heck out of me, specifically why some posts get minimal reach whereas others get tremendous engagement...we're talking mind-blowing numbers. From little old me. =)

I still have yet to figure out how these posts are evaluated by the elusive Facebook algorithms but here is what I suspect...they pick up on certain words and if there is anything remotely related to a contest or giveaway or solicitation of business,…

Stop Hounding Me With Buy Links!!!!

People want to buy but they don’t WANT TO BE SOLD!

I love that quote. It’s so true. How many times do you go into a store, greeted by eager-beaver salespeople asking if they can help you find something to buy?

I could never be in sales…

But alas, I AM.

I’m an indie author. Not only do I write, but I also market and SELL.

Like with most businesses, the market is pretty much saturated with books. You name it, there’s a genre out there. And about a trillion…

Just Add A Hint Of Sex To The Title

Okay, so about a week ago I wrote a post about email marketing techniques.  Remember...I said I wanted to figure out a way to get people to actually open my newsletter?  On my big BOOK LAUNCH DAY???

Well, here are the results of my efforts.  Out of 229 recipients, 45.4% opened the email. That is a ROCKING number, folks!!!!  The industry average, according to Mail Chimp, is 16.9%.  

This is what I learned.

A sexy title with the…

Linkedin is NOT a dating service: Rumblings of a married social networker

I currently run a Facebook account, Facebook page, two Instagram accounts, two Twitter accounts, and am on Linkedin… I opted out of installing Facebook messenger on my new I Phone, but did buy a new I Pad mini to keep all of my Not Skinny Not Rich social networks separate from my personal.  I signed up for Hootsuite, but at the moment I'm too overwhelmed to figure out how to use it.  Oh, and I almost forgot, I reluctantly signed up for Pintrest about a month ago.  NONE of these social…

You should text your mother

As mentioned before, my Mother is really good with technology. She blogs, she texts and she FaceTimes with her grandchildren. It turns out that this is really good - not just that she is adept at embracing new things, but it's good for my relationship with…

The right to be forgotten

There is a history podcast that I listen to (mostly in my car). In addition to telling me little-known stories about famous rulers, the podcast also spins tales about lesser-known figures. Sometimes the details that are included astound me - what people ate, how they spent their free time and even the exact reasons for their deaths.…

How do you plan on embarrassing your child?

Children are embarrassing; it's in their nature. I believe that many adults are often jealous of children's social "pass" in getting to say whatever is on their minds at any time: "That woman is fat!" or "I can see your underwear and it's blue!" or "The food you cook tastes like poopy!" are all things that can be yelled by children at the decibel level of a jackhammer with little immediate repercussions beyond a parent saying, "please use…

March Parenting Tip: Time to Get Stricter with your Sitter’s Pictures!

When we leave our children in the hands of a sitter, we typically go through a checklist of items, to ensure we are all on the same page.  Some examples may include discussing bedtime routines, going over any necessary medications, emergency contact information, how late we might be out, etc.  We rarely think about social media and how it affects our sitter and more importantly, our child.…

#ASKAWAYFriday With Teddy is MultitaskMomma

I started participating in #ASKAWAYFriday and I have enjoyed it. I love connecting with other bloggers and learning more about them. I wanted to participate in this blog hop because I don’t always share a ton of information about myself. I thought #ASKAWAYFriday was the perfect way for everyone to get to know me on a personal basis. For those who don’t know what #ASKAWAYFriday is, you exchange a set of 10 questions for another blogger to answer. Below are 10 questions that Teddy asked me and…

The Importance of Fathers in Their Children’s Lives

If you knew there was one thing our nation could do to improve every area of a child’s development, would you be in support of that one thing? Research shows children that have involvement from both a father and mother perform better in all developmental areas. Children need their fathers to be involved. For far too long, our country has seen fathers at best as an add-on to what mothers provide for children and in some cases fatherhood has been discounted altogether.

Families First,…
