Teri Jones presents 10 Baby Foods Not to Make at Home posted at Nanny Jobs, saying, “One thing that commercial baby foods may have over those of the homemade variety is large-scale nitrates testing and extensive knowledge of food safety as it relates to growing infants.

Caleb Hill presents What Should You Do When Your Boss Volunteers You to Watch the Neighbor’s Kids? posted at Nanny Classifieds, saying, “Working as a nanny can also be a complicated minefield of potential complications with your employers when boundaries aren’t respected.Being volunteered to watch children other than your charges is usually frustrating, especially when you’re already dealing with some degree of job creep.

Kimberley Grabas presents Powerful Pictures Perform: How to Create Images That Grab Attention posted at Your Writer Platform, saying, “Images and graphics are an incredibly important tool for capturing your audience’s interest. Like multi-pixel eye-candy for your readers. In fact, images rank right up there with your post’s headline for creating impact, grabbing attention and enticing your reader into giving your article a chance when the competition is fierce. Add to that the growth of social media platforms like Facebook, Tumblr, Instagram and Pinterest–and the increased ease with which we can take, alter, upload and share images–and it’s impossible to avoid this new age of visual fascination. For many writers, this may be alien territory, but since the importance of images in today’s world can not be denied–or ignored–finding simple but effective ways to source, edit and incorporate images into your platform building is essential.”
