WRITING ALL WRONGS

Social Media Platforms for Your Blog

You want to drive traffic to your blog, but you don’t know how to do it. There’s a pretty easy answer to this, social media. People spend a lot of time on social media so it’s the number one way to guarantee that people know about your blog. The question is what social media should be using.

The Best Places to Find Freelance Work

Being a freelancer is already hard. You have to keep track of all of your projects and where you are with them. You don’t set hours, which is great in theory because you can work whenever you want, but it usually results in you working all the time. Nobody is taking taxes out of your income so you have to figure that out yourself and by the way, did I mention paying in quarterly?

How I Work While Being a Stay at Home Mom

I am a stay at home mom and a writer. I can’t imagine giving either one of those things up. I love being with my son all day and I love writing. They’re both parts of me and I’ve had to figure out how to balance them. My little one is a very active and energetic almost-two-year-old so I can’t just tell him that mommy has an important deadline and expect him to understand.

Nurse Wherever You Want

I am a huge supporter of breastfeeding rights. Nursing your baby has so many benefits for both of you. However, if you choose not to it’s okay. Not every mother is comfortable with it or can breastfeed. As much as I planned to and wanted to nurse my son, I couldn’t due to the steroids I was taking for the PUPPPs I ended up getting at the end of my pregnancy.

Things No One Told Me About Being a Parent

For some reason, no one hands out pamphlets full of useful things you should know about how your life is going to change when you have kids. Suddenly, there’s a half-eaten banana in your desk, you’ve seen every episode of Puppy Dog Pals ever made, and you’re scheduling sex into your planner with a hopeful little question mark.

At-Home Date Night Ideas

You can’t always get out for a date night, especially when you have kids. That doesn’t mean that you and your spouse should just cancel your night together. I’m a hopeless romantic so nothing is going to get between me and my date night! Seriously though, I’ve found having a date at home can be just as good and sometimes better than going out!

Keeping Track of Tax Deductions

This is especially true if you’re an independent contractor or a business owner because you’ll have to pay in quarterly for your taxes. Finding deductions is pretty easy if you know what you’re looking for, but keeping track of them to make sure you can actually deduct them is the hard part.

Look Professional for Less

If you’re entering the world of office attire straight from college you probably don’t have a whole lot you can spend on a new wardrobe. Even if you’ve been dressing for the office for years you probably don’t want to drop a small fortune on new work clothes. Never fear, Amazon to the rescue.

Canceling Your Credit Card After Paying it off: Good Idea or Bad?

Quite frequently I hear people worrying about what they should do with their credit card after paying it off. Some people that have dealt with credit card debt will tell you that you need to get rid of them. Some people will tell you to keep them open and keep a small balance on them.

Preventing Overspending in a Time of Instant Gratification

We’re all used to having everything we want available when we want it. You can instantly stream movies and communicate with the touch of a finger. You don’t even have to leave the house to shop anymore and with Amazon Prime, you get your orders within a day or two. So when we see something we want we’ve been conditioned to get it right then.
