About

Interested in starting a blog? We can help!

First, I want to apologize immensely for the quality of my video. I live in the woods like Robin Hood which means our Internet sucks! I promise I'm not trying to mime or dance to Mr. Roboto. :) I wouldn't put you through that horror. 

I am, however, looking for your support. Last October, I published a book with 29 fellow bloggers called The Mother of All Meltdowns. It's an anthology that highlights our most awesome (horrible - absolutely terrible) mothering moments. It has done exceptionally well - hitting #4 the first day we released it and later hitting #1 in its category of Motherhood (which is huge y'all!). Here's a peek at some of our highlights:

Working with some of these bloggers and a few new to the group, we'd like to publish a new book. It will be another anthology. This time it will include our personal stories as bloggers - how we got started, what the challenges are, how to make money blogging, and so on. It will also include practical tips and how-to's. There are a lot of books on blogging, but none in anthology form where personal stories are shared. We want to help those looking to start or grow a blog take the leap of faith, have fun, and be successful!

We are an enthusiastic group with an impressive following. Here are our combined stats:

  • Combined Social Media Reach (Facebook, Twitter, Google+, and Pinterest): 200k
  • Combined Monthly Unique Visitors (all blogs): 240k

We don't have a title yet for the book or a cover. So I had to use Crayolas this time around. 

We're ready to get started NOW, so please pledge what you can. I promise we will not let you down!

Thanks for your support!

Risks and challenges

We are pretty determined to make this project a success. This book will go to market and it will sell like umbrellas in Manhattan on a rainy day. The only risks I see are not getting the necessary funding to properly market this book and any delays in production. If need be, I will crack the whip. :)
