Mom – This IS What I Do

Every phone call starts the same way.

“Jessica, my friends ask me what you’re up to and I don’t know what to say.”

“Tell them I’m a blogger.” I respond.

“But how do you make money as a blogger?” She asks.

And then I sigh, really loud, because if I had to spend several hours explaining to my mother just how a blogger makes money then I’d have to charge her a consulting fee. Because I think we all know that every douchebag with minimal knowledge of HTML and CSS (can’t sell shit) is a social medial consultant.

Here’s what I do for a living.

  • I take care of my kids and my husband
  • I play tennis and go to lunch
  • I tell you my stories on Whrrl
  • I blog about my family and sometimes overshare
  • I use twitter
  • I’m launching an ad network, soon I hope
  • I’ve got an app waiting for approval in the iPhone store
  • I’m going on Dr. Phil to tell you moms don’t suck

How do you make a living doing this? You didn’t really expect to get all my secrets, did you?
