Weekly Bloggertunities for Mom Bloggers – 6/14

mom blogging tips and leads

“If you stay ready, you don’t have to get ready…” – Will Smith

Love this quote. And I’m feeling more “ready” than ever after spending a few days with some of the most kick-ass bloggers around at Reviewer’s Retreat a couple weeks ago! Seriously – I learned tons of great tips and tricks, connected with some amazing ladies that I was so excited to meet in real life, and the excitement and energy from all of those awesome people really motivated me to bump my blogging up a notch! I had to travel for over 12 hours to get home again last week, then took a couple days to rest and help my poor house recover from being left alone with just the men to keep it clean, lol. But – I will be doing a recap of my session – Grow Your Audience – with a little more info thrown in. And I’ll pull out my notes from the event, and share some of the other great info that I learned during the weekend too. Stay tuned! {Want to head to some cool conferences this year too? Check out this Blogging Conference List for 2012}. Until then, check out my round up of cool stuff to help you increase your earnings, connect with new brands and bloggers, and cool tools to help you save time. As always – if you have any great event sign ups, linkys to share, blogging articles to help, or affiliates not listed here – PLEASE feel free to share them in the comments. The more you guys share, the more everyone benefits! And to make sure you never miss these weekly opps, take a minute to sign up for my email subscription. Thanks for reading!
