• How to : Start a blog

    TweetSo you’ve started a blog, now what… I unlike most of my fellow bloggers fell into blogging, I am not a writer, I’m not in PR, I have absolutely no background or experience but I’m a Wife and Mom and have done a pretty decent job of keeping all my boys alive and healthy so far (touch wood, rub a rabbits tail, 2 hail Mary’s and a good luck dance).

  • Supporting Momtrepreneurs : Meet Ella from Just Ella Bella

    TweetI first heard about Ella on one of the SA Mom Blog Facebook pages and immediately popped over to her blog to read a bit more about her story, I spent hours reading through her posts on Child loss and her son Logan.

  • Having FAITH and starting a small business

    TweetTaking a step IN faith! Have you ever asked yourself the question, “Should I wait in Faith or Step out in Faith?” For the last 2 years I have done just that. I’ve dreamt about starting my own business, something small, something manageable and something that means something to me. I work well with balance, with structure and being comfortable. This has been fine, until now. Very recently I’ve been questioning myself, questioning where I see myself in the next 5 years, trying to work on my plan and one night before I fell asleep I thought, “Do I really want to live in my comfort zone for the rest…
