Although my readership has grown substantially since I started writing, I continue to be in awe that somebody takes time out of their day to read my words. With each blog post, I strive to be honest and unbiased. (My husband would add that at times I am perhaps too honest.) I wanted to use this post to let everybody know about some exciting new opportunities have come my way.
Several months ago I was
contacted by an up-and-coming website, Unlimiters.com. The founder wrote
to me and offered me the opportunity to author a blog on his site.
After sharing his story and his vision for his business, I agreed that
it was something that I would feel proud to be associated with and
signed on to be a Featured Blogger.
Each Friday I author a post
which features a product that I have found helpful since becoming an
amputee. The products that I recommend, along with a myriad of others,
become available in the virtual store on the site. Because I would never
want to endorse something that I don't use or believe in, each featured
product is of my choosing. These blog posts require a different style
of writing and the challenge has been rewarding. I invite you to check
out the website and blog, and please let me know if you have any product
suggestions. In the quest for full disclosure, I am financially
compensated for those blog posts but not for the product sales.
few weeks ago another interesting opportunity arose. I was contacted by
the representatives of a VPN company, HotspotShield.com, and offered a
unique partnership. To be honest I had no idea what a VPN was or why one

it to Scott with the request for him to research both the company and
It turns out that utilizing a VPN is a good idea,
especially since I spend so much time on the internet. My IP address is
automatically embedded in every email I write. It only takes an
individual with unsavory intentions and a little computer knowledge to
track down my location. When I learned this, I became alarmed. A VPN
filters my messages through a third party server, masking my true
location. Although I'm sitting on my couch right now, my computer thinks
that I am in Australia. Even though my IP address is from the other
side of the world, my surfing speed is not compromised.
after the company was vetted by Scott (and my Mom) did I proceed to
investigate the partnership. After trying the service for myself and
discussing the opportunity with my family, I accepted the offer. I am
delighted to announce that I am the new "Mommy Ambassador" for
As part of this new venture I will be
exploring some of the benefits and attributes of utilizing this VPN
service. From time to time I will mention the company in my blog, but
please know that the information and experiences that I share are
genuine. Above all else, I strive to maintain the integrity of my blog
posts. I just wanted to make everybody aware of my new role and this
