Letters from Elisa  :   We're Back...

Dear Readers,

Well I'm back from our family spring vacation.  We had a wonderful time visiting family and touring the sights of Chicago.  The kids are good little travelers and as always we enjoyed our visit with the cousins.

It was a nice break for me from momready as well.  Don't get me wrong, I love having my own business and writing for the site, but running a business and a family at the same time has its ups and downs.  You can read more about this daily journey on our NEW blog momready publishing: a tired mom's notes on running a business and a family which launches today.

If you have your own business, are dreaming of starting a business, or are curious about what goes on here at momready, this blog will give you some insight into mom-entrepreneurship and it's inherent trials and tribulations.  Of course that will be balanced with plenty of humor and rants.

We are also excited to announce our Mother's Day Photo Contest. To enter, simply submit a photo which you feel best depicts the word "Motherhood" and you could be the winner of a Vivitar 6.1 Megapixel Digital Camera.  Photos may include mothers, children, objects... whatever you think depicts Motherhood.

All photos must be received by 12 midnight PST, Sunday, May 7, 2006.  We'll choose our 6 favorites and then post them on the site Monday, May 8th.  Readers will then have 5 days to vote for their favorite Motherhood photo.  The grand prize winner will be announced on Mother's Day, May 12th 2006. (click here for contest rules and information)

Finally, a reminder that we need your help to get the word out about momready.  If you would like to link momready to your own website or blog, a graphic link can be found on our momready links page.  Here you will also find our recommendations to some great websites and blogs.  Remember, for every 5 subscribers you refer to momready, we'll send you a momready t-shirt.  

To sweeten the pot a little, we are also announcing a NEW Referral Contest. The first 5 people to refer 25 subscribers to momready will each receive an Ipod Shuffle. This contest will only include referrals received between today, April 17, 2006, and June 16, 2006.

So there it is. momready is starting out spring with a bang!  Now if the weather would only warm up a little...

Best regards,

Elisa Taub
