There are milestones in a blogger’s life that signify how far they’ve gone after all their hard work. Receiving an offer for sponsorship for the very first time, for instance, is a milestone. Selling an ad spot on your blog for the first time is another.

I wonder what other bloggers do; do they say no automatically? Do they say yes if the price is right?
Have you ever thought about becoming a Work At Home Mom (WAHM)? I thought about it long and hard the day I sat down and calculated how many students I had suspended, and how many had been arrested in just one week. When my daughter was born I took one look at her and knew that I had to figure something out fast.
I've always been a big believer in "early to bed, early to rise" making me healthy, wealthy and wise. But, lately I've been hanging with a bad crowd.

I went to BlogHer to become a better blogger and it seems that I've become the worst by not blogging at all. I've made strides to be better, y'all. I've even made a schedule.Yes. Y'all are on my Google Calendar.I've also been horribly, horribly sick with a sinus infection/chest cold of doom. You can forgive me, right? Cleaning sneezes off of my laptop screen wasn't on my desired task list. Sorry for the image, but there you go.So here's the update:

There was so much involved in the planning of our wedding. I really didn't know where to begin. Never having been to a wedding in DC and never having planned a wedding, I turned to weddingwire, weddingbee, gayweddings, the knot and other such websites to read reviews for DJ's and other vendors. When I met with the wedding coordinator at the Washington Plaza, she also had recommendations for vendors. Our wedding coordinator has been in the business for 18 years and for most of that time she has worked with Ray at Bialek's music. I took that recommendation to hea
So, on Sunday my partner Nicky and I were married in Washington DC. All the worry was for naught. It was a gorgeous, gorgeous day. It truly was the happiest day of my life. It was so exciting to have my father walk down the aisle, to be supported and loved by family and friends, to be told repeatedly that you look beautiful and that Nicky looks handsome.
I was nervous for a total of 10 minutes while I was waiting in my room alone for the wedding coordinator to come and get me for the ceremony. And my dear friends and bridesmaids, sensing my nervousness,
If you work in any industry, it likely has a trade show or five. Trade shows are as bountiful as the markets they represent so standing out amongst a sea of competitors is always a concern.

'Tis the Season... while we're busy blogging, reading blogs, cooking, and blogging some more, taking a few minutes each day to promote our favorite bloggers can give a significant boost to their own holiday cheer!Here's what I try to do in order to promote my fellow bloggers, and my own blogs... it's all about The Power of Five:
In Wisconsin, we get some crazy weather and here, nothing shuts down for snow. People on the interstates drive at 65 mph whether the roads are snowy or dry. They zip right by me because until after driving in the first few snows, I am overly cautious. I'm the person who is stopped at a red light to make a left turn just glued to my rear view mirror praying that someone doesn't come barreling up and rear end me. Although being rear ended or slid into is something beyond my control on the roads in the winter, being prepared is not.
Shortly after the BoomBoxNetwork party, Epilady contacted me and requested I write a review. I wrote back telling them that in all honesty, I couldn't do a review without a test drive of their product. They asked me to write an email with links to some of my reviews and the stats, and which model(s) I would like to test and also told me that lots of people wanted to review their products. I replied with links to my pajama jeans review (my first post on BlogHer!) and a few others that I've done the last few years.
I love how social media has this great way to connect people that might not otherwise have connected. I also love how you can end up finding great designers and artists that you may never have seen if not for outlets such as twitter and Facebook.

Amanda is a college student who started her shop on the side as an outlet for some of her artistic ambitions. All the listings of jewelry or accessories are designed and hand-crafted by Amanda.
