There are some pretty kick-ass people in my boot camp, and I always partner up with them even though I know it’s going to hurt like hell and I might not be able to keep up. Why?

My kids aren’t on the computer much. They don’t have Facebook accounts and for the most part, when they go online it’s to feed their Puffles on Club Penguin with me in the room as they earn coins and build igloos.

It’s a pretty safe assumption that they will eventually google me.
I was going to write about all these lessons I learned from Blissdom Canada. How attending a panel on monetizing your blog made me realize I don't want to monetize Speed Skating Mom. How inspired I was by people I admire.

I want you to listen very very closely as you read this blog. If you listen hard enough, I do believe you’ll hear Erica closing the door on letting me have free reign on my blog topics from this point forward.
