As you know, my husband is a professional photographer and has a couple fancy Canon DSLRs and lots of fancy looking lenses and stuff. I’m scared to touch any of it – it’s expensive, it’s heavy, and I have no photography skills. Some people have a black thumb for gardening,…

Blogging Behind the Scenes: How I Make Money Blogging

Blogging is this weird secret society where everyone likes to show how well they hustle and show how successful they’ve become, but rarely admit what extent of success they’ve achieved or how they’re achieving that success.
