I'm Speaking, Ya'll: Blissdom '09

I am so looking forward to the Blissdom '09 Conference that is coming up on February 6-8 and am honored to be speaking on two panels with some of the most amazing women on the web. I will be sharing my experience with content & readership as well as navigating the social media world to grow your site and/or blog.

I am particularly looking forward to meeting some of the women I have secretly worshiped and adored from afar on the web- Meredith, Shannon, Tsh, & Marie... just to name a few! Seriously, it is about the best round-up of speakers you will ever see!

If you register before December 31st, you can take advantage of the Early Bird Special rate at $100 for the conference.


I hope some of you will be there because I can think of nothing better than meeting all my friends in person.

Looking for Talented Writers


Update: Thank you to everyone who has emailed me. I have received sixteen responses and I think that is all I can handle right now. I will let you guys know when we need more writers for the Family section and will open it up again! Thank you for your enormous response!


I feel very blessed to be part of the new Blissfully Domestic website. If it has been awhile since you visited, you should swing by there and see the great new design, writers, and editors that are making this a hot spot for women to learn and share.

I am the Editor for the Family Channel where we cover everything from parenting, family, empty nesters, grandparents, new parents, working parents, love & marriage and everything in between. We currently have 28 gifted writers who are contributing to my channel alone and I would love to expand our team further.

If you are interested in writing, please email me at amy@momadvice.com and let me know! With our booming team, you can commit to once a month or once a week. Of course, the more often you commit, the more often you will be seen and be able to direct traffic back to your own site. Our goal is to promote bloggers and help you grow your website!

Please let me know and I look forward to hearing from those of you that are interested!

Getting Crafty With Your Kids & Big News

This week on WSBT, I shared my crafty ideas for things you can make with your kids from common items out of your pantry. I had tons of props prepared after doing the Michiana Family Expo (sponsored by Michiana Family Magazine). We spent twelve hours at the mall showing parents some fun crafts to do with their kids and I reused these same props for this segment. For those of you who weren't able to make it out to see us, I hope this will provide a great substitution.

To go along with this fun discussion, please visit our latest article, "Being a Crafty Parent... When You Just Aren't." As a parent who struggles with being crafty and fun, I hope that I can help provide inspiration for you to get crafting with your children. This article contains a few easy recipes that will help get you started on a fun crafting adventure with your kids. Be sure to check our resource list for our top recommendations for craft books and hit your local library.

I have two new articles up on the Kenmore website that I think you guys will really love. The first article is, "Help Kids Earn & Learn." This article focuses on teaching your children how to start a small business or helping them earn money by simply helping you around the house. I worked really hard on it so I hope you enjoy it!

The second article is, "Plan the Perfect Summer Getaway." I meant to highlight this sooner, but had forgotten to. I hope you can bookmark it for planning your next vacation and we share some of our favorite family trips & trips for organized and thrifty traveling.

**************************

Next week is going to be a fun week on our blog because I am going to be be doing an entire Play It Again, Momma week!

If you decide to do a Notebook Experiment, just hold it tight for a week or give yourself two weeks to complete it.

I have never taken a vacation from my blog so this will be a new one for me. I need some time to rejuvenate and refresh so I can bring some new ideas to the table. In the meantime, you can read all of the stuff that I am most proud of so I hope it will be a good compromise!

I will also be busy working on helping with the Eleven Moms gig and have added a new role to my list- Editor of Blissfully Domestic. I have taken over the Family Channel and I have twenty-five amazing writers that I will be working with. Basically, I am not sleeping and that is why I need a week to sleep.
