Things may look a bit different soon as I start implementing advertising through the Ezoic platform. If you are a long-time reader, then you know how much I hate ugly ads.

Newsletters, Mail Chimp and Spam

I started the Geek Mamas newsletter a couple years ago, but always forget to send it out. So imagine my surprise when I finally did send it this month and Mail Chimp sent me a spam notice and basically said I need to start over or have everyone reconfirm.

All About Sponsored Blog Posts

I started this blog as a sort of personal therapy, with plans to write about whatever I wanted. The thing is, blogs cost money to maintain and I'd also like to make a little money as well, so that's where sponsored blog posts come in.

Changes to the Geek Mamas Blog in 2020

I've made a lot of little changes to the Geek Mamas blog the past month, from little things like adding a blue background, to big things like a total SEO overhaul.

Writing Your First Blog Post

I always read about people having trouble pressing publish for the first time. They stress about putting that first post out into the world for everyone to read.

Writing an Honest Review

When you read a review of anything on this blog, even when I've been paid to write it, I can assure you it will always be an honest review. Things don't always go according to plan, and when things inadvertently go a little awry, I find it's best just to write the truth instead of … Continue reading Writing an Honest Review

Writing Rejection – How It Can Be a Positive Thing

Writers always talk about their rejections, so this is nothing new. You always read about famous authors collecting stacks of rejection letters and postcards, maybe even hanging them on the wall for inspiration. But as someone who only recently starting sending out queries and submitting articles, it is new for me. And in these days you … Continue reading Writing Rejection – How It Can Be a Positive Thing
