Though for the first few years "making a living" was a real relative term. I started and sold the Sparkplugging blog network, and now I run a new network of kids activities websites called Woo! Jr.
Momsational is my new 'blogging home' where I get to chat about whatever the heck I want. That means you'll find me talking about internet advertising strategy, Photoshop tricks and my latest Etsy find - probably all in the same breath. Contact Wendy Editorial Policy: My reputation has and always will be one of integrity on the web. If I am ever compensated in any way shape or form for content, you will know. But that doesn't happen too often, as I turn down paid reviews, sponsorships and goodies daily. My rule of thumb is that I take compensation only for things I would be willing to write about for free. And since I'm a pretty lazy writer, it would have to be really kick ass to be interesting enough to give it blog space!

Everything that is done in the world is done by hope.
