Baby showers: Not just for mom anymore

There is a new party on the horizon. In celebration of your baby, you might sit back, relax, and get ready to enjoy all the fun and frivolity that is your baby shower. But wait, because you aren't the only one who wants to be the center of attention.

Daddy Diaper Parties are a new way for men to celebrate impending fatherhood. Cancel the cute games, get rid of the cake, and break out a brewski, because a 'Dadchelor' party is all about relaxing and getting in touch with your inner Dad.

Intrigued? Looking for a Dachelor theme? Look no further than a small list of ideas at Survive Parenthood Magazine.

Because a few people have asked how I ended up working from home

I get asked about working at home a lot. I mean, a lot. It seems to be a difficult thing to do, and I will admit to having had my own trials and tribulations with it.

I've been freelancing for over 3 years now, and I can say that I no longer really take jobs anyone from freelance websites, Craigslist, or other online forums. Most jobs have come my way due to referrals or just getting my writing out there.

But, for someone just starting out, I can't recommend freelance sites enough. Even if you just get a few good pieces for your portfolio, it could be worth it to you.

This week, I did a focus piece on working from home and focused on Odesk. Take a peek:

After three years of speculation, Casey Anthony is not guilty

Nothing makes me feel more ill than someone hurting their children. Although a jury passed a not guilty verdict today in the Casey Anthony trial, it still remains that she got away free and clear after possibly murdering her child. At the very least, even if the story she concocted about the accidental drowning is true, she is guilty of being one of the most horrendous mothers to walk the planet. There is no way to be impartial when you are reporting such a story, no way to gloss over the fact that justice has diminished the memory of a defenseless 2 year old baby girl.

So what happens to Casey Anthony now? Not much. Check out the Article on Survive Parenthood Magazine.
