Below is a Q&A you can use on your own site to help promote "Make Money to Write About Your Kids". It was originally published on

How long have you had your business?

Since late in 2009, when I was pregnant with my 5th child.

What led you to pursue it?

I've always loved writing, and once I hit a certain point in being a mother I realized I had much to say and much advice to give! Also, it's the perfect thing for an attachment parenting mama to do ... nursing while typing is no problem! Plus, I now homeschool, so I can be with my kids and write.

Are you full time or part time?

Part-time probably until all my kids are out of the house!

How do you market your business?

The typical social media outlets: Twitter, Facebook, Google+, various blogs.

What is your favorite part of the business?

Too many favorites! It's portable and I can do it on my own time and do as much or as little as I want or am able to do (articles, ebooks, sales letters, freelance work and more). I love being able to homeschool the kids while being with my traveling-for-work husband sometimes.

What one question do you get most from people about your business?

How much money can you make? So I put that weekly on my blog, Make Money to Write about Your Kids. I'm very honest. Some weeks I do well and make up to $40/hour and some weeks I get no work done and make no money.

What one myth or misconception do you want to dispel about the work you do?

That you can't make good money as a writer. If you have many balls in the air you can do it!

What advice do you have for others who want to get into a similar opportunity?

Keep at it and don't get discouraged and don't worry about rejection ... keep moving forward. If you have many queries and writing opportunities and ebooks in the works and are writing every day, you will get better and you will sell work.And please don't languish in the content mills! You are worth more money than that!

What is the first step?

If you want to write for regional parenting magazines for clips and money then work your way up to nationals like Parents, Working Mother and the like, get my ebook! I started offering the ebook for a higher price in conjunction with 3 article critiques to get people moving. I'm also working on a little email course you can purchase where I kick your butt with writing prompts and assignments and deadlines!

If you want to write for other markets, definitely grab a current Writer's Market. Just get your stuff out there. There are so many different ways to freelance! For instance, my regional parenting work led to writing a marketing manual for an editor who had another business. It also led to, where I write great-paying blog posts for companies.
