Hello friends! I can’t believe I’ve been at this blogging thing for a little over a year now. Crazy. I can’t even begin to wrap my head around it. It feels like just yesterday that I purchased my domain and hosting and decided that I was ready to take my blog and business to the next […]
I know I’ve mentioned before that I still work basically full-time. 30-40 hours a week. Yep, and I do some freelance writing as well. I know, I know. I’m crazy. Obviously, I love what I do, though. When you start blogging, you work for months or even years for free or basically free. I mean, […]
Blogging is a tough job, especially these days. It’s over-saturated, which makes it hard to separate yourself from everyone else. And without being different, you don’t stand a chance. Add to that the fact that social media algorithms keep changing and every platform seems to be making it as difficult as possible for you to share your stuff.

I’ve read a few too many how to make money from blogging posts. And you know what? I swear they’re all the same.

Oh, and did I mention that I work full-time too? And then of course there’s the never-ending housework that seems to always need done. So much to do and so little time, you know?

We’ve all been there and done that, haven’t we? We’re going along just fine and then all of a sudden it hits us – a creative […]
There’s one question that’s almost always on my mind – what’s the best way to manage my time and get more done when I’m working from home without sacrificing being with my son? I’ve been asking myself something along those lines for the past six or so months as I learn to achieve that ever-so-delicate […]
We all make mistakes when it comes to our creative spaces. Some of us just happen to make more than others. I’ve definitely made my fair share of them over the years. I love to shop and I love to organize, which always seems to get me into trouble. Coupons make for some pretty powerful […]
