For my new readers I would like to offer my Money 4 Mom series roundup again. Next week I’ll get started with answering more of your questions about blogging.

Penny by Penny – The kick-off to the Money 4 Mom series and discussion about how blogging is a slow way to earn money, so you better be passionate about what you write about.

Free Blogging – The biggest freebie in my life is Blogger because it enabled me to have this blog hosted for free.

Google Ads – A few tips based on what I’ve learned about Google Ads, also I share a blogging tip with you; how to get your hyperlinks to open in a new window.

Be an Affiliate for Freebies
– Did you know you can earn money by showing affiliate ads on your blog for free samples and free offers?

BlogHer – Why I love my ad network, and how you can utilize BlogHer’s resources even if you don’t belong to their ad network. Speaking of BlogHer, I want to hear from my blogging readers who have recently been accepted! Let me know and I’ll email you a few tips based on what I’ve learned.

– An excellent guest post by Northern Cheapskate about yet another way you can make money on your blog.

Your Blog is Your Small Business
– Resources to help you treat your blog as your business, because that’s what it is if you are making any money!

Invest in Yourself
– Your blog is you and you are your blog, why investing in yourself should be a top priority.

Google Alerts – The easiest way for bloggers to stay on top of who is blogging about them, and who may be copying them.

I’ve got a winner to announce for Sashwhy’s Studio Blog Header Giveaway, I got a big response from bloggers and received 217 entries. The winner is in for a real treat to get to work with Ashlyn, owner of Sashwhy’s Studio. The randomly selected winner, compliments of is listed below.

#73 Idawon a custom blog header for her blog: Momma’s Blog

How do you know if you won? I just share the winner’s first name here, but I sent the winner an email. So if you got an email from me you need to respond within 48 hours. If I don’t hear from the winner within that time frame, I will draw a new winner.

Didn’t win but you still want a chance to win a custom blog header for free? Coming up later this morning I’ll be announcing a new giveaway just for bloggers.

The Money 4 Mom weekly series focuses on blogging as a potential source of income. It’s where I share tips and resources with bloggers every Monday.

I am thankful for you setting up this site, I am a mother of 5, 3 teens are still at home ages 16 & 15. Since my husband got sick I have been struggling to cut corners wherever possible, your site is now making it easier for me. Sorry this is anonymous I don't understand a lot about the computer and I couldn't figure how to send it with my name.
