Parent Affiliate Marketing? Who in the What Now? Next to selling their own products and services, parent affiliate marketing might be the smartest and easiest way of monetizing a parenting blog after the great parenting blog income crash of 2011. Now that display advertising is not paying what it used to, and most bloggers have […]
Mini went on his first field trip today. I accompanied him, thinking they would need extra help. Turns out I was wrong, since there were about 20 kids and 17 parents. This is undoubtedly reflective of the socioeconomics of Mini’s preschool, but nevertheless it was kind of heartwarming. Everybody wanted to be there, and Mr. […]

That’s right — from my sick bed, I’ve done this, so they extra bitter and nasty.] My hate mail […]
I may have mentioned before that Mini — both whilst he was gestating and at present — is a big fan of the Chicken McNugget. Now — just stop. You do not have to tell me that Chicken McNuggets are gross: I’m well aware of this fact. Still, while pregnant with him, I ingested an […]
