Mini Touchscreen Laptop –irrelevant but awesome

note to self:never publish this

I keep a page with this title on each one of my sites,saved as a draft or password protected. I use it as a general “things to do next”and a place to document the invisible work I’ve done on the site. It’s amazing that I can remember what each of my six kids [...]

Writing for Bukisa,One year anniversary

If you haven’t heard of Bukisa as a writing site,it’s probably because it’s not taken very seriously as a source of income.

Design Your Writing Career

Everyone in my “real life”doesn’t know what I do for a living. It’s not that I’m secretive,it’s just that people assume a homeschooling mom of six is plenty busy enough,right? In fact,about 6 months into this business,when I was working several hours a day to build up my body of [...]

Dirty Tricks are Not Cool

She posted a [...]
