FOUR Articles in One Month in Calgary's Child!

I'm so excited and wanted to share with you! This is the SECOND time I have gotten FOUR articles in one month's publication. Back in November/December 2010 this also happened, and it's happening in the November/December 2013 edition of Calgary's Child this year! There's just something about this time of year, I suppose. Should I go for FIVE in the 2014 edition?!


Here are my four article titles:

8 Holiday Traditions for Everyone
10 Terrific Ideas for Fun in the Snow
10 Ways to Bust Indoor Boredom
Things to Think About When Considering Homeschooling

See how you can truly Make Money to Write About Your Kids? And don't be fooled by the knockoff or copycat books ... mine is over 200 pages long for a reason. It includes not only tips and tricks and processes and worksheets, but also MARKETS and PAY information and EMAIL ADDRESSES for tons of magazines, regional and national! If you contact me off Amazon, I'm happy to send you the bonus at-a-glance Excel spreadsheet of all the markets for FREE!

Here's how to get your copy so you can also be making $50 per article! Believe me, it adds up and really helps out at Christmastime and when your furnace breaks down and when you need new brakes and when the kids need braces. And if you just want to treat yourself to something nice, which you deserve, of course!

September's Scintillating Income and Sources 2013

UPDATE: Head here, to March 2014's numbers to see how I've been doing lately!

Ah, September. Remember I told you my income would likely be down in September due to homeschooling starting up? Well, that was true. I can barely fit in 20 hours a week working in the mornings and whenever I can sneak in 15 extra minutes, so keeping in mind that I only work part-time from home while also frolicking with my kids every day most of the day and keep an immaculate house (hahaha!), September weighed in at a whopping $1,651.26 (if I could do that every month, that translates into about $20,000 per year working part-time from home ... not bad for a girl who didn't even go to college!).


Here were April's numbers, and then May's numbers. Then here are June's numbers, and you can see I'm increasing my income every month. July was amazing but not as good as August!

It is once again awesome to be able to make this much money from home while also being able to swim with the kids, take them to parks and other cool places! I'm able to pay for gymnastics every month and our big-ticket purchase for the month for the house is not coming to mind, but I know there was one. Also, I'm able to start saving for Christmas, which I never could do before (credit cards, anyone?!), as well as save for that little vacation I keep talking about taking with the family.

I am in the Stop Whining About Money and Do Something About It Club! Care to join me? Open enrollment is now!

Disclaimers: For the record, I have no reason to lie to you about any of the income I’m reporting, and the most underhanded, nasty, smarmy thing I’m going to do is give you my referral links so I can make a whopping dime or so off of each person who signs up to do what I’m doing! The dollar amounts I show are what I actually RECEIVED in my hot little hand or PayPal account, not what I EARNED because things show up at different times and take different amounts of time to come around.

Just like always: I STILL do not count my eggs before they are in my PayPal account. Now, let's get started:

1. Fiverr. $577. The majority of my income is from proofreading when my kids sleep, but I also have gigs for promoting things via my social media outlets. Things kinda tanked here in September.

2. Bubblews. $433.52. Just click on the word Bubblews and you can sign up using my referral link. This is basically a blogging site that you can read more about here. Anyone can join.

3. Regional Parenting Magazine articles, new and reprint: $70. That would be thanks to this little gem, and I'm not even really trying.


4. PostLoop. $9.50. I'm going to send you here because I have a lot of information on this and it needed its own post. Bottom line: probably worth it and potentially $10/hour while you watch TV. *IF YOU SIGN UP UNDER ME USING MY REFERRAL LINK, THANK YOU! PLEASE DO THE 10 POSTS TO GET STARTED; YOU WILL GET POINTS FOR THOSE AND THEN A RATING, THEN YOU CAN CONTINUE ON.

5. Private proofing jobs: $505

6. BlogHer ads income from 3 tweeting campaigns plus one month of ads on my main blog: $56.24

Come back to see October's numbers!

*Yes, I pay taxes on every stinking cent!

"The Birth of a Business" by Cory Tsuhako (review)


I'm going to be upfront with you here. I had the pleasure of proofreading this ebook recently and really loved it. I told the author I would love to do a review on my blog because, quite frankly, I think it's a great read about how he started his own business (birthed it!) and saw it through ten years of ups and downs, happiness and sadness, changes and more.

Here's my review I posted on Amazon:

I love what another reviewer said about this book, that the author is approachable. This book is not written by some know-it-all, I-am-the-best type of person. This is written by someone who is humble and tells you honestly how his business went for 10 years.

He doesn't make it seem like a get-rich-quick thing ... rather, you are shown that business is very difficult and there are times you wonder if you will make a dime even when you are working your tail off.

This book is packed with helpful advice for anyone thinking of starting their own business. It discusses family, faith, friends, coworkers, the team you build and finding good people to work with.

This is a terrific resource!

Here's how you can buy this ebook at a very affordable price. And ... insider information, so be cool and keep it on the down-low ... it's FREE Friday through Sunday, so please get it for free and come back and leave a review. Reviews are imperative to sales on Amazon, and I believe in this ebook!
