Happy Halloween #TBT

To all you little Ghouls and Goblins – Happy Halloween and be safe out there tonight!

This is a picture of our oldest son, Tayair; our youngest is still at work, so the days of Trick and Treating are gone forever, however, I will always have these memories!

Last night Tayair accompanied me to a taping of the first Episode of the “Co-Marketing Masters TV Show” in Upper Marlboro, MD and I can’t wait for it to air so that I can share.

But in the meantime, enjoy the Traffic Jam Weekend Linky Party and check out my Podcast as you stroll safely through the neighborhoods.

  1. Wow! So much to comment on in this post…
    First, my family hasn’t celebrated Halloween since I was 10. But I would still grab candy at the stores for my own kids so they didn’t feel left out. The costumes the kids wear are adorable though and I always wondered if I was missing out on anything.
    Secondly, I liked your pick this week on the Linky party. I’m not up on sponsorships and what they are. But they scare me a little. In a former blog I started for fun and for just sharing my love of a hobby, after a couple years, I started getting free materials mailed to me to review and items to post on my sidebar for viewers where I would get a percentage of the profits of those who clicked through to buy. It started out like just more fun. But, after a while, I felt like it all was starting to take over my blog and like I somehow had added another job to my life. The blog started feeling like it was less for me and that definitely was not my goal. What are your tips for maintaining balance between keeping your voice and your blog being YOUR blog and gaining sponsorships, etc.?
    Lastly, the interview was awesome! I really enjoyed the advice about sticking to your business in spite of hardships too. Passion for the craft of what you do and the process is paramount. ❤️

    1. I remember when I taught school, there were students whose families that didn’t celebrate Halloween and I felt badly for them, but I understood. I put a “no candy” sign on the door this year, but didn’t see or even hear any kids out, so it wasn’t that bad, plus I can’t eat candy like that anymore so having leftovers would have been bad…for me?

      Yes, unless your blog is dedicated to product reviews then you don’t want to bombard your readers with them, however, it’s a great way to earn money!

      Glad you enjoyed the interview, I am learning so much from my guests!
