Bloggers: get paid to work for great brands with #Markerly’s blogging network

~This post was written in a partnership with the blogging network Markerly. All opinions are my own.

My blog started as a place to connect with friends and family when my husband and I lived out of state. It grew and turned into so much more. Now, my blog is my business and I make a very nice additional income for our family working from home. I love it!

Part of how I make money is through blog networks that offer paid posts and sponsored content for influencer marketing. There are a lot of

The Save Babies Blogger Baby Shower: Chicago 2013

Last year in NYC, Kristine of Cora’s Story and I hosted a Blogger Baby Shower. It was a wonderful success and tons of fun where we learned about newborn screening, shared relevant brands and products, gave away prizes, and chatted with friends.

Work From Home Tax Deductions

*As a LifeLock Ambassador I received a membership & compensation for this post on work from home tax deductions*

This is my third year being self-employed with my blog work and social media management. Taxes can certainly get tricky when you’re self-employed, especially when you’re new to the process. What can you claim? What deductions can you take or, maybe even more importantly, what deductions shouldn’t you take? I’m NO expert, so my first recommendation is to consult a professional on work from home tax deductions!

First of all, when you

a BlogHer12 NYC review

This was my third year at BlogHer, but it seemed so different. It feels like there are hundreds of things I want to tell you… but we’ll save the 24+ hour trip home (thank you, Southwest), my favorite products and gifts, and my tips for another post. Right now I just want to share my pictures and recap what I did in NYC!

Blog conferences are all about the follow-up: business card test

I’ve been to the large blogging conference BlogHer twice and am about to go for my third time early next month. Business cards are a must-have when you attend conference like this because you meet so many new people…. at BlogHer, there’s a huge expo hall filled with sponsors that everyone wants to meet and many times you also throw your business card into a bucket to enter some sort of contest or giveaway. Then there are the private parties used for networking, too, and all the other bloggers you interact with.

So last
