at

Yes, you read that right. Work from home and make a legitimate income as a stay-at-home mom. By legitimate, I don’t mean a few bucks here and there. I mean a part-time, or if you really know how to hustle, full-time income, from home.I cannot tell you how many moms I know that would love to be a stay at home mom or work from home, but don’t know how! If you are in that boat, I want to help you!If you aren’t sure if you are financially ready to live on one income check out my post on Living on One Income-Are You Financially Ready?Most moms who want to work from home want it to be easy and flexible. You want to be able to work during nap time or after the kids go to sleep. You want to be able to miss a day if you need to take care sick kiddos.

Mama Blog Monday Link Up #4

at

Hey Mamas! I am so excited to have you back! If you are new, welcome!*This post contains affiliate links. See disclosure and privacy policy for more information.*I had a busy weekend with my daughter’s 3rd birthday party. We kept it small this year, just immediate family. I was so excited to give my daughter a balance bike along with a helmet, knee pads, and elbow pads. She loves to get all dressed up so we thought she would enjoy the extra garb! I will share a post about it later. I was happy the bike wasn’t too big but since she doesn’t know how to use it yet she wasn’t all that interested! I plan to take her somewhere to practice this week so she can get better at it!I can’t wait to see all of our link ups today!

How to Create a “Pinnable” Image Using Canva

at

Hey Blogging Mamas!  One thing I have learned on my blogging journey is the importance of making a great “pinnable” image for each blog post. This image is what will attract Pinterest users to click through to your blog.When I first started using Pinterest to share content from my blog, I wasn’t getting much traffic.
