This one’s near and dear to me:  my good blogging friends Colleen Padilla and Audrey McClelland are publishing a book!  The Digital Mom Handbook (Amazon, presale price $10.10) is available starting July 26th (which also happens to be my birthday and clearly a sign that it’s an awesome book everyone must purchase).

So often, my line of work comes up in everyday conversation.  People who aren’t in social media are so curious.  How do you make your money?  How did you get started?  What does it take to run a blog for business?  Some people ask out of curiousity but others want to know because they are considering doing it themselves.

The Digital Mom Handbook answers all of these questions.  Colleen and Audrey have managed to achieve what most women dream of: a successful career while they can still be home taking care of their children.

As I read the book over the weekend, I found myself nodding along to much of it.  I’ve been in this space for many years myself and I know these ladies well.  They are honest and forthright in their recommendations on how you can get started and how you can succeed in the space.

This is a fabulous book if you are even thinking about starting a blog.  They put you on the direct path to get started easily.  And if you’re already a seasoned blogger?   It’s still a worthwhile read!  Audrey and Colleen offer lots of quotes and success stories from other bloggers in the space and it was neat to read their stories!  And it’s always great to freshen up and get a different bloggers perspective on how they do things.

Preorder the Digital Mom Handbook on Amazon for $10.10. I’m honored to be quoted in the book so if you order it and read it, look for my quote!

Giveaway: In the meantime, I also have a giveaway of 3 copies of the book to 3 lucky Mommies with Style readers!  To enter, comment below by end of day July 25th.  The three winners will be selected and notified on the day the book releases, July 26th.
