Celebrate Macaroni Kid Of East Atlanta

This-Year-Graphic-2015

So I just move in silence these days. When you see something from me or for me it is usually a done deal. Life just works in favor for me when I move in that manner. In January I was approached about acquiring this website from MacaroniKid.com. Seemed fair enough to me. Read through everything. Meditated about it. Choose between North Carolina and Georgia. Then placed my John Hancock on the dotted line. After all I had run my own website for four years and I knew my Public Relations background would be a plus.

Well, two months later I have not looked back and LOVE the fact this was a blessing. I am simply having a ball. East Atlanta Macaroni Kid is my new baby and I am so grateful for her. She has enlightened me to life in East Atlanta and given me a family audience. I share everything positive that is happening in East Atlanta from events to contest to reviews to organic articles. I have even grown the number of subscribers by 150%. Yes! Such a wonderful experience. Please take a look around the site. Get to know East Atlanta better by following me on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Pinterest. Join in a discussion. Comment on a post. Subscribe to the weekly newsletter. Do whatever tickles your fancy. I just want to welcome you and hear from you!

SPONSOR OF THE MONTH

Moms: As Elite as the CIA…Well Almost

MOMS-2-e1406504042463

Andrea Keeney is a writer, blogger, mother, and wife. She is the creator of the blog, Parenting with Parents as well as the author of the book, Moms: As Elite as the C.I.A….Well Almost. When she isn’t pursuing her dreams of writing she is taking care of her three small children.

Attention! There is an elite group of women walking freely among the average citizens of the world. These freakishly instinctive beings are capable of physical, mental, and emotional acts of greatness. They tend to appear irritated, exhausted, and are almost always bombarded by very tiny renegades who are whining and/or yelling. These women come in many shapes and sizes, however they all respond to a single name: Mom. If you know one of these women, if you are one of these women, or if you are going to be one of these women, you need this book!

Are you looking to get your blog or website in front of numerous people per week? Do you enjoy Turn It Up Tuesdays? Interested in having your blog or website featured for an entire month?

SPONSOR OF THE MONTH

Moms: As Elite as the CIA…Well Almost

MOMS-2-e1406504042463

Andrea Keeney is a writer, blogger, mother, and wife. She is the creator of the blog, Parenting with Parents as well as the author of the book, Moms: As Elite as the C.I.A….Well Almost. When she isn’t pursuing her dreams of writing she is taking care of her three small children.

Attention! There is an elite group of women walking freely among the average citizens of the world. These freakishly instinctive beings are capable of physical, mental, and emotional acts of greatness. They tend to appear irritated, exhausted, and are almost always bombarded by very tiny renegades who are whining and/or yelling. These women come in many shapes and sizes, however they all respond to a single name: Mom. If you know one of these women, if you are one of these women, or if you are going to be one of these women, you need this book!

Are you looking to get your blog or website in front of numerous people per week? Do you enjoy Turn It Up Tuesdays? Interested in having your blog or website featured for an entire month?

From Sarah at Grace in Oils: I am so excited to partner with Natasha from Epic Mommy Adventures for this awesome giveaway! We are giving away three books & three Young Living essential oils.

My goal with my blog and my Young Living business is to help bring essential oils into every home. I want everyone to know they can use essential oils! While I encourage research I also offer resources to those I enroll to help empower them to get answers to their questions. I chose Young Living due to their Seed to Seal guarantee and I go into that on my blog. If you are interested in starting your journey with Young Living I would LOVE to have you be a part of my team. I fully support those I enroll via online groups, an e-series, and more!
