blogging opportunities for mom bloggers

“Some people dream of great accomplishments, while others stay awake and do them.” -  Danielle Luedtke

This quote could NOT be more appropriate for mom bloggers like us, right? We don’t even have TIME to dream, lol. We’re too busy with the kids, meals, homemaking, blogging, and other fun stuff to ever have time to sleep and dream. Yep – while the rest of the house sleeps and dreams of great accomplishments, we’re still awake at 4am, meeting our deadlines. Ah, the glamour….. Lol. But, hopefully this post each week helps you all a little with those goals, and helps you find new ways to reach your dreams, goals, and plans. I’ve made blogging, freelance writing, and other online work a full time income that supports me and the little one – and I hope to help others do the same. I’m starting a new site devoted to this next month… If you have any specific questions you’d love to hear more about, email me at sunshineandsippycups@gmail.com so I can help, or leave me a comment here. Let’s ROCK 2012, ok ladies?? I feel good things for us all…. {here, be motivated by Rocky and this great quotes video.}

Networks to check out

  • Media Team: Fill out an application to share more info about you and your blog, to join the Review Wire Media Team! This is a new group, with some fun projects coming up soon.
  • Linqia: I really love these peeps. I worked on my first campaign with them recently, and they are SO helpful! It was a little bit confusing at first, to be honest, since it all works pretty different than other places I’ve partnered with. Quick overview – They determine a “pay per click” amount you can earn, and a cap of how much you can earn during the campaign. My first one was .50 cents per click, with a cap of $145. It was super easy to meet my goal, I was surprised. If you over deliver, you don’t earn more – but they will give you a higher cap next time. Payment comes pretty quickly. Learn more and join here.
  • Share a Sale: I’ve mentioned this before – and if you know me well, you know I totally RAVE about this one! I love that the brands from this affiliate network reach out for reviews, offer bonus payouts just or posting a link or a banner, or other cool things. This is an awesome way to get into affiliates – Best I’ve worked with, ever. Learn more and join shareasale.com.
