February 20, 2013 | | 2 Comments

Last month the Pentagon lifted the ban on women in combat, allowing women on the front lines (and potentially in a selective service draft)

The feminist in me says, “Hurray! Equal rights for girls.”

That’s Soy Controversial!

May 28, 2012 | | 10 Comments

When I did my post about the P. Allen Smith Bean2Blog event I kept it pretty mild because I tend to go to the crazy place with food, especially soy. It’s that crazy little piece of food that seems to … Read More

5 Reasons Every Mom Needs An iPad

March 29, 2012 | | 6 Comments

If you’re reading this you’re likely trying to justify a very expensive, seemingly frivolous purchase. Don’t worry! I’m here to help.

Does every mom need an iPad3? No. That might really be frivolous. Don’t get me wrong. If you have an iPad3 I’m not calling you spendy. I just think the lesser iPad2 is more justifiable for most, and you can get a refurbished iPad2 straight from Apple.

Without further adieu… Read More

How to: Be a work-at-home mom (WAHM)

March 6, 2012 | | 8 Comments

Guest post by Shannon Magsam. 

When I went on maternity leave from the newspaper where I was a reporter, I wasn’t sure if I would go back to work or stay home with my new daughter.

I left the door open. Then, after she was born, it closed tight. As a writer, I figured I could cobble together a decent annual salary with freelance work.

After my three-month leave, my first stop for work-at-home job options was the newspaper I had just resigned from. It felt a little weird, but they were gracious and said they were glad to have me. I happily continued writing a weekly lifestyle piece where I interviewed local married couples about how they met. I also picked up other work for the paper, including a food feature and profiling our region’s version of the rich and famous.

Later, I added work for a local PR firm (which my newspaper friends joked was “the dark side”) and started writing press releases for a large retailer.
