I'm going to be honest. When I first heard about iBlog Magazine, I thought, "Great. Another fluffy publication with articles on how mom bloggers make millions of dollars with actual actionable tips. Just another way to make money on the backs of those who want to get into blogging." I didn't sign up or even check out the publication. I didn't feel I could possibly benefit.
Then, I attended the Mom 2.0 Summit in May, and I was gifted an issue in my swag bag. It had some pretty good articles in it, and most of what was written was information I was pretty familiar with. Many of those interviewed were my colleagues or friends. I thought the publication was professional, but I wasn't convinced that it was something I needed.
Just last week, I attended the Shareasale Think Tank event. This small conference gifted me with another issue of the magazine, this one being their "Money issue." It contained articles pretty much all about how to make money, what other bloggers are making, and how to maximize what I'm already doing to stop leaving money on the table.
That's my kind of publication.
Okay, that's the Norman Rockwell version of the holidays. For most of us, there is some time to relax and enjoy time with family and friends, but there is also a lot of stress, last minute preparations, and time-consuming commitments around the holidays. The problem can get even worse when you're juggling an at-home business.
However, you can prepare now to make this upcoming holiday season less stressful. Try some of these tips:
