It’s time for a roundup and for me to ask you what topics you are interested in learning more about in my “Money 4 Mom” series. Your questions will allow me to line-up some future posts for this weekly series about blogging as a potential source of income.

If you are new to reading my blog, here are the topics I’ve written about in the past:

Hi Heather,Taxes? This is probably the biggest thing keeping me from even considering making money from my blog. How does this work and how are you taxed for making money blogging? Seems like it could make tax time even more hair pulling.Thanks
