Macaroni Kid: Chicago Loop

Because my to-do list isn't long enough...

I am starting a new venture called Macaroni Kid. It is a free weekly email newsletter and website that lists all the upcoming happenings and events for kids in our community. You can check out the national site to see what my site can (and will!) become. Then visit my works-in-progress site at http://chicagoloop.macaronikid.com/.

There are Macaroni Kid sites for most of the states in the US and there is even an international site, so if you aren't a Chicagoan be sure to look for one in your neighborhood! And if there's not one? Start your own!

Macaroni Kid allows you to work as much or as little as you like and still be home with your kids. In working with local organizations, you have the opportunity to attend awesome family events in exchange for posting the information on your site! One Publisher Mom (what those of us with newsletters are called) was able to send her kiddo to camp for an entire summer for FREE, all in exchange for write-ups and advertising on her site.

Yeah. Not too shabby!

So now that I've grabbed your attention, check out my site and be sure to subscribe!

If you end up starting your own site, be sure and let them know Lucy (okay, use my real name which you'll find on my site!) sent ya! And let me know, so I can see what's going on in your neck of the woods.

And last, but certainly not least, please let me know of any upcoming events that you'd like posted on my site!
