Odds & Ends

I just wanted to make everyone aware of a few things happening this week.


First, I've started a discussion on our Facebook Fan page. If you're not a fan already, become one and you can participate. Today is the first day of school here, so it has a back to school theme. Everyone that joins in the discussion will be registered to win an Announcements Galore gift certficate!

Also, we have a special promotion going on this week. You can save 20% on any listing, advertisement or service at Market Mommy just by entering coupon code SAVE20 at checkout. So, take advantage of that as well!

Last, but certainly not least, we've made a few very minor adjustments to our main site. We've activiated our Guest Book page. So, if you have any compliments or concerns you'd like to share, feel free to visit us there. We've also created a News/Opportunities page, where you can see our press releases (which we'll be uploading soon, I promise) and our current opportunities.

Thanks! Here's to a great week! {And a short one for me, I'll be out of town on Friday!}

Mommy Monday:: Janis @ The Dinner Spin

Janis has always been an entrepreneur at heart. As a child, she sold used fireworks on July 5. Since the first dollar she earned, she knew she wanted to own her own business. And, on her first Monday morning commute after the birth of her second child, the inspiration for The Dinner Spin struck her.



“All of my passions combined in this one idea to provide simple recipes and help busy cooks stay organized enough to provide a delicious, nutritious meal every night of the week with minimal effort,” she said.



The Dinner Spin’s mission is to make meal preparation easier by providing simple, online
tools. “Our goal is to inspire healthy habits when it comes to planning, shopping, cooking, eating and budgeting,” Janis said.



She has two small children, and like every mom business owner she finds balancing everything a big challenging at times. One thing that really helps her is structuring her day. “Clearly defining work days and hours is hard,” Janis said. “But, making sure you draw that line is important.





The Dinner Spin is free, and easy to use. And, according to Janis, it offers healthy ideas that are easy to implement. Subscribers receive a weekly menu with healthy entree recipes, a grocery list and a game plan to help pull it all together, plus a weekly blog provides more fun food ideas.



Typically, the blog recipes are built around a theme. For example a recent recipe include how to care for, hw to ripen and most importantly, how to use tomatoes. Each week there are new ideas that keep readers coming back!


Janis said she loves being a work-at-home-mom and really enjoys the flexibility. “Being able to drop everything for an impromptu picnic or morning at a nature center is worth more than any benefit package a big company could offer,” she said.

Back to School!

I'm sure many of the mommies out there are either preparing for the first day back to school or have already endured it over the past week or so. You may be experiencing mixed feelings about it, missing them, but also glad to get some work done with them out of the house! If you're interested in sending some of those 'first day' photos to family and friends, Announcements Galore has some cute back to school photo cards starting at just $.75 each!

Check them out!

Thrifty Thursday:: Mom Fuse

Who doesn't like a good deal? Mom entrepreneurs have a very limited budget to begin with and in this economy things are even tighter. So, how can we continue to market ourselves without breaking the bank? One way is to visit Jessica at Mom Fuse!


Mom Fuse offers a variety of information on topics of interest to all women and moms. If you've never visited, I encourage you to do so! There is info on mompreneurs, beauty, food, family, parenting, reviews, shopping and more. I especially encourage you to visit the mompreneurs page, there are some great guest articles posted there from Market Mommy :-)

And, of course, since we are all looking for great ways to network and get our business name out there, Mom Fuse offers that as well. There is a blog directory, a place to post your blog's giveaways and some great paid advertising spots that start at just $20 a month. You really can't beat it, she has some great statistics! From experience I can say that you get a great bang for your buck!

Mom Fuse is also gearing up for their annual Holiday Gift Guide! Along with having your product featured, there are also some giveaway and advertising opportunities available. If you are interested in having your product featured, e-mail Jessica and provide product information and an image.

Happy Thursday! We're almost to Friday, yay!
