When I first started looking into how to create a money-making blog, there seemed to be endless amounts of resources available! There are so many pieces of advice and places to go to monetize a blog with just a quick Pinterest search. Sometimes it seems like there are more blogs out there about blogging than any other writing niche. What I didn’t really seem to find was a selection of posts about what the process of getting a blog going would actually be like. I found many how-tos full of affiliate links or income reports from people who were making pennies to a few dollars each month. The reality is that many of us fall in between the high-traffic/high-income blogs and the ones that are struggling to find any readers at all.
Social media is definitely changing the way that we all shop, and it seems like multi-level-marketing companies, aka MLM’s, are becoming more popular by the day. These companies allow families to have one parent work from home, watch the children, and still provide an addition to the family income. Some of them do it full time, and some of them are working in addition to another job.
Registering for baby items can be entirely overwhelming! There are way too many items that you can buy for baby, and everyone has a different opinion on what is a want versus what is a need. I suggest customizing your own new baby checklist to keep track of the items that you plan to buy or borrow before baby arrives. As far as knowing what is worth splurging on and what items you can skip, that one will depend on your lifestyle. There are, however, some must-haves that all mamas tend to agree on. Here 40 moms share their favorite items from their baby registry.
One thing that all new parents expect to spend plenty of time doing is changing baby’s diaper! I’m sure you’ve been thoroughly warned about the sheer amount of time that is spent changing diaper after diaper when you bring your little one home. For the most part, changing a baby’s diaper is a no-brainer, repetitive activity. There are a few things, however, that all of the advice givers tend to leave out. Keep reading for 10 things that no one tells you about changing baby’s diaper.

Sarah over at Digital Motherhood has challenged me to share 10 things that make me happy. It can be really easy to focus on the challenges that come with parenting (and life in general!), so I am more than happy to stop and take a minute to think of the blessings around me.

It is crazy to think that my Peanut is 9-months-old already! I feel like some days drag on forever, but the months have gone by without me even noticing. He has grown and changed so much in that time, and I feel like I have changed nearly as much. There are so many things about myself and my life that are different now than I would have expected. People say that you can’t really plan for how having a baby will change your family, and I now understand what they all tried to tell me.
Direct sales, multi-level marketing, and network marketing companies are everywhere right now! It seems like everywhere you turn on social media, one of your friends is trying to sell you something, right? While sometimes these companies get a bad name from the “product pushers” out there, direct sales companies are a great way for moms to make extra income, socialize, and have a job while spending time with their little ones.
