Dear Mom Bloggers: Are You Utilizing Google Friend Connect Newsletters?

When I decided to get serious about growing my readership last spring, I

knew that one way to gain new followers would be to start utilizing Google Friend Connect. You’re probably quite familiar with Google Friend Connect Members Gadget, but if not, it’s that little collection of faces on my right sidebar with a Join This Site

button on top. At least 90% of the blogs I visit are using the Members

Gadget,… Continue

Is it Always Appropriate to Reach Out to Fellow Mom Bloggers?

I have been writing online for a long time, but only within the past six months did I become fully conscious of mom blogging as a distinct subset. I wasn’t aware that so many moms were finding

such creative ways to monetize their blogs, and even partner with top

brands, but when I opened my eyes and took a good look around, I

immediately began to wonder which avenues these women took to align

themselves for success. For me, the obvious way to gleam insight was… Continue

A Question for WAHM's: Are you Getting any Work Done?

Since, having my son last year, I have referred to myself no less than a thousand times as a WAHM (work at home mom, on the off-chance someone reading is not familiar with this acronym.) I am a mom, and do most of my work as a photographer and writer from home. What I am finding, however, is that my life as a WAHM means I spend my entire day in the Mommy role, caring for my 1-year-old. During… Continue

Trading Cradles a Safe Way to Buy & Sell Items Your Little One Outgrows!

With children, comes stuff. Lots and lots of stuff. While this accumulation of toys, clothing, and baby items is inevitable, it can become a challenge to manage what seems like a constant shedding

process as your little one grows and matures. Glancing around my living

room right now, I can count at least four of Evan’s toys that are simply

taking up space, and need to be in the hands of a younger baby who

would find some enjoyment in them.

Luckily, I was…

Mother & Son Dance

As a wedding photographer,

I am invited to share some extraordinarily emotional and intimate

moments with my clients. I mean, I’m with the bride and groom through

their entire wedding day, from that jittery getting-ready phase, to the

exchanging of vows, and finally, the celebratory finish. Do you want to

know which event on the couple’s wedding day will put me into

near-tears, without question, invariably, EVERY SINGLE TIME? You

guessed it–or at least read… Continue

The 5 Best Sites for Mombloggers to List & Promote Giveaways

Clearly, I enjoy reviewing products that are relevant for my family and my audience, and I also love when companies allow me the pleasure of hosting giveaways! When I first started hosting product giveaways on my blog, I really had no clue

where to begin my promotion. If people don’t know you are giving away a

product, no matter how amazing it is, they won’t be able to enter to

win! Most of us are looking for more traffic, and certainly the client

you are…

The Top 5 WordPress Plugins for Mom Bloggers

While I’ve only been a “mom blogger” for less than one year, I’ve been

using WordPress as a blogging

platform for quite a long time. Over the years I’ve probably installed a

few hundred plugins on my various blogs, and sometimes it is trial and

error to find the best plugin to fit a need. Following are my current

favorite plugins, in no particular order. Mom bloggers who are already

using WordPress may find something new to try,… Continue

When to Take Your Baby to the Doctor, Or, Diary of a Worry Wart Mama

I am a first time mother, with very little experience with babies prior

to giving birth to Evan. Every time he comes down with even the

slightest sniffle, or has some other sign of illness, I have this

feeling of WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO DO NOW come over me. I mean because

really, what am I supposed to do now?

Are You Guilty of Overprotective Parenting?

When I wasn’t peeing, vomiting, or experiencing some other ache or pain during my pregnancy, I was thinking.

I was thinking about what color my baby’s eyes would be, what outfit I

would put him in to come home from the hospital, and if he would be as

perfect as my fantasies had painted him. I also had these nagging

thoughts and paranoia about actually having to take my fresh newborn

baby out into a world that is so chock full of… Continue

Don't Squander Nap Time

So, it’s nap time (cue the confetti!). Your baby has just drifted off into dreamland, and you have an indefinite period of free time on your hands, but what should you do? Should you take a nap too, hop in the shower, grab a quick lunch? What about the laundry that needs to be folded, the dishes that are begging to be done, or the bills you need to sort through? Sometimes it can be hard to decide how to spend that precious nap time, especially if you

are… Continue
