Looking for a Work at Home Job- Intro

Less than a year ago I became pregnant with my son; my first child. I had been working in a restaurant as a bartender for several years. About 3 months into my pregnancy I had some complications and was put on bed rest till after my delivery. I knew i couldn't go back to work. I fell in love with my son. Everyday that  passed was a day stronger I cared that much more for him. I couldn't imagine leaving him home and miss all his growing up to stand behind a bar a serve drinks. Plus, daycare is very expensive and one of us would be working to just pay that bill. My hubby and I knew that we needed to make some changes.

A lot pf people I'm sure can relate to this situation. I will admit I got sucked into the scams and paid a lot of money out of pocket trying to figure out how I can work from home, take care of my child but still make a decent income.

So after a lot of research, I came across a couple sites that I would like you to check out. They were extremely helpful for me. Plus I'm saving you from wasting your money, giving you helpful leads and hopefully lead you on your path to a successful career working from the comfort of your home. and are very highly respectable sites for making money online. Check them out and read some articles; they were extremely helpful for myself and I hope they can help you as well.

Peanut Butter Cookies

"This is definitely the easiest recipe ever!"

  • 1 cup of peanut butter, smooth or chunky it doesn't matter
  • 1 cup sugar, plus a little extra for tossing into
  • 1 egg


1. Heat oven to 375"F. Stir together the sugar, peanut butter and an egg in a large bowl
2. Roll dough into 1-inch balls in it to coat. Place two-inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets
3. Press each ball down with a fork to make a crisscross design. Bake for 10-minutes or until cookies just start to brown on the edges. Remove from the oven and let it cool. Makes about two dozen.

Hash Brown Egg

"This is one of my favorite easy to do breakfast recipes. I know you will absolutely love it."
1 cup of shredded potato
1 cup of chopped onion
1/2 cup of grated cheddar
2 eggs
1/4 stick of butter
salsa to serve
In a hot skillet, add potato, onion and butter until crisp (add extra butter if needed). Add cheese and crack to eggs. Place in oven at 425"F till sets. Top off with salsa and ready to serve.

If you would like to make your own salsa, just dice up tomato,jalapeno, onion, & parsely. Delicious!
Feel free to share your recipes as well.

Profit in Blogging- Part 2

So i started to talk about choosing a topic for your blog. Something that you enjoy and wouldn't mind always writing about it. You need dedication if you really want this to work.

I've learned that, to build up readership it takes time. This is where you'll be making your money.

I never thought blogging you could make enough money to not work anywhere else. But i was wrong. Very wrong my friends. There are bloggers making a six-figure income; some even seven-figure. It's amazing the limitless abilities you have available at your finger tips.

First step to making money blogging is to set up a blog. is a free blogging site.

Second step is to start writing. I recommend at least 3 times a week. To do that you must be consistent on  writing three times a week rather than 15 times in 4-5 weeks. Readers love consistency which builds a better foundation for your relationship with your readers.

Readers love a blog that's updated all the time, it's a proven fact.  Now just make a commitment, start writing and make some money!

Profit in Blogging?

These past few years i been researching on how to make money online or making money from home. I think i have spent over $600 buying into all the marketing. Spending my free time online and doing whatever work it took, but seeing no result.

Recently i had my son in April and it was a life change for me. I met an amazing guy, who i had a beautiful son with, but now i have realized i can't go back to working at my old job as a night bartender. I want to move ahead in my life. I am twenty-four years of age and all i want is to be the best mom & wife i can be. To make sure i make the most of my time with both of them.

I came across through some blogs on how to make an actual profit from blogging. Since i love to write i fell in love with the idea of this. I truly just wanted to figure out something i could do to bring to our family and still get to spend time home and watch my son grow.

I am no professional at the moment, but I'm hoping to be eventually and would love to share with you as i learn more. Right now, the first step is to be dedicated. If you're not in this for the long run then don't waste your time. You won't be a millionaire over night or make a quick buck. Know that posting a few blogs isn't going to roll in the cash. Far from it!

First Step. Choosing a blog topic and the actual writing of
the blog. These are important to understand and you must have in place before
just jumping ahead to making money blogging. Because, as we all know,
if you don’t have traffic, you can blog all day, but you’ll never make
a penny.

We'll talk more in a bit....

My pregnancy is over and it was worth it!

Oh man, summer is definitely here. Heat rising daily and by next week we should be in the 100's. Sure seems like earthquake weather. But on the brighter side of things I get to stay inside. I'm so ready to move now and I know Jeff is too.

Update with little Seth, he's doing great! Almost 3 months now. It's going by so fast. I just remember coming back from the hospital not to long ago. I really hope I'm the best mom I can be and can be there through anything he needs. Having him was a life changing experience for myself and for Jeff. But I know we're happy.
