Part of the benefits of having your own website, is that every now and then you get to be somewhat narcisstic and write about YOU like.
I consider the following websites top-notch and worth a bookmark. All of them offer a motherload (get it? motherload??)
Most of these sites are written by moms like myself, who want/need to earn some extra money from home. We are all using the
same company to do it. This is my fifth year on this website, and the monthly income it provides has been a God-send. It is now part of
our monthly budget.
I went from being an Internet-imbecile, email-only mother who was afraid of forums to creating and building The Essential
Infant Resource. If you're looking into an honest way to bring in
money at home, letting you stay at home with your precious children.
Yes, it takes time. It takes hardly any money. When I first jumped into this venture, I had only $35 available every month in our budget to invest. And that more than covered my expenses to get started.
If you can check email, you can build a website. Trust me. That's where I started, and this is
where I've ended up: with a profitable source of monthly income that lets me stay home with my kids.
Sidenote: In case you're wondering, building a profitable WEBSITE is much easier than building a profitable BLOG.So why not do them simultaneously?
I really enjoyed browsing around Baby Nursery Rooms, and I think you will too. The articles are FULL of good information about how to do simple decorating techniques.
My favorite thing about this site is the pictures. It's like an online magazine of inspiration.
I can't help it. Yes, I judge a book by it's cover. And I judge a website by it's photos. Let me tell you, this site is full of good information and beautiful brainstorms to
help you achieve the nursery you've dreamed of.
Information on Surrogacy is a comprehensive website detailing all aspects of commercial surrogacy,
with both traditional and gestational surrogates. It's written for all intended parents, egg donors, surrogates, and those interested in surrogacy.
Becoming a surrogate mother isn't an easy decision. Finding a trustworthy source to ask questions is difficult. So when Rayven dropped me an email a few weeks ago, I was excited to look
over her website. There really isn't anything like it on the web. Founder Rayven has been a surrogate on three separate occasions. She's been there, done that. If you've ever wondered
about surrogacy, you really must stop over and pay her a visit.

If you've read my brief bio, you'll know that I worked in foster care as a Social Worker before we had children.
For this reason, I'm a huge advocate of adoption (international or national). In fact, Cameron and I are planning
on expanding our family through adoption in the next 10 years.

Celebrate Motherhood is an up-and-coming website about...guess what? Motherhood!
just-like-us mom Kimi shares inspiration and good 'ole information on this exhausting-yet-exhilirating profession of ours. At home, on the job,
at the store, where ever life takes you, the title of "mother" is an awesome responsibility. It's a fun site to read through, and the information
is spot-on. In fact, I would consider the section on the different seasons of motherhood a must-read!
Okay, so I realize this is not directly a parenting site. But in many cases, what I learn and think about through this site affects my parenting.
My husband Cameron and I whole-heartedly support the idea of intelligent discussions and debates about the culture and political climate of our nation.
In the Public Square is a thoughtful discourse for Christians about how God would have us live in this nation of freedom. I appreciate the intelligent,
logical reasoning that is used in assessing positions and discussing the moral questions and issues of the day. Host John Snyder keeps things interesting
and lively, and refuses to engage in emotional name-calling and yelling. It is a safe place to consider various facts and discuss their meaning and
implementation on a national scale. Click here to visit In the Public Square.
