Who Is Kerrie McLoughlin?

Kerrie McLoughlin is the fun-loving homeschooling mama of 5 amazing kids and wife to Aron McLoughlin, her best friend since 1995. She grew up loving writing and has written for over 155 regional parenting magazines since 2009. A Kansas City native, she is also the author/compiler of the ebook "Get Published in Parenting and Family Magazines: Make Money to Write About Your Kids," currently in the 6th edition with print edition also available, but she's working on the 7th edition for 2016. You should also check out her yummalicious "The Tater Tot Casserole Cookbook"! Both books are always free on Kindle Unlimited and she often offers free days in general here and there.

She loves taking on proofreading assignments (ebooks, blogs, term papers, novels and more), as she missed being the Error Police when she was a working girl in public relations and other places pre-kids.

If you can't get enough Kerrie, her humorous life blog is at, and she spends quite a bit of time over at Make Money From Home writing about the life of a WAHM. She also blogs at Homeschooling Mommybot and She recently started a blog about her family's journey to financial independence at

Below is a Q&A you can use on your own site to help promote "Make Money to Write About Your Kids."

How long have you had your business?
Since late in 2009, when I was pregnant with my 5th child.

What led you to pursue it?  
I've always loved writing, and once I hit a certain point in being a mother I realized I had much to say and much advice to give! Also, it's the perfect thing for an attachment parenting mama to do ... nursing while typing is no problem! Plus, I now homeschool, so I can be with my kids and write.

Are you full-time or part-time? 
Part-time probably until all my kids are out of the house, but lately I am able to find more time while they sleep! 

How do you market your business?
The typical social media outlets: Twitter, Facebook, Google+, LinkedIn, Pinterest, various blogs.

What is your favorite part of the business?
Too many favorites! It's portable and I can do it on my own time and do as much or as little as I want or am able to do . I love being able to homeschool the kids while being with my traveling-for-work husband sometimes.

What one question do you get most from people about your business?
How much money can you make? So I put that monthly on my blog, Make Money to Write about Your Kids.  I'm very honest. I started getting really serious in April of 2013, then made about $1,300 in May. Check it out. I also list my sources of income with links so you can do what I do if you so desire! Some months I make over $2,000, but that's usually in the summer when the kids are not homeschooling.

What one myth or misconception do you want to dispel about the work you do?
That you can't make good money as a writer. If you have many balls in the air, and you are organized, you can do it!

What advice do you have for others who want to get into a similar opportunity?
Keep at it and don't get discouraged and don't worry about rejection ... keep moving forward. If you have many queries and writing opportunities and ebooks in the works and are writing every day, you will get better and you will sell work.And please don't languish in the content mills! You are worth more money than that!

What is the first step?
If you want to write for regional parenting magazines for clips and money then work your way up to nationals like ParentsWorking Mother and the like, get my ebookJust get your stuff out there. There are so many different ways to freelance! For instance, my regional parenting work led to writing a marketing manual for an editor who had another business. It also led to, where I wrote great-paying blog posts for companies for a short time, and


  1. Hi Kerrie,
    I happened to see your article in NJ Family magazine. Cute. However, as a mother of 3 young boys, and a new Catholic who "transfered" to the Catholic faith this past Easter, I realize that you fail (big-time) to see the danger in what you term as cute little Halloween celebrations. How unfortunate and how discouraging. Let me tell you whats "out" Christmas! Ok? Christmas is out... entirely! and while it might be easy (as well as un-empathetic)for you to say " Oh, keep Jane home from school if you don't want your child to dress up or participate in Halloween festivities (which is easy to say if your homeschooling your kids) and your child is not in the public school. From one one Catholic woman to the other, what you are unfortunately failing to see is that Halloween has taken over for Christmas.Completely!! Witches, ghosts and Demons (cute, huh?) are the mainstream in schools now. Trust me... I know. If you feel it's fine to give Satan a foothold on your children by enticing them with the "sweetness" of Halloween and some lame excuse to be "socializing" you are decieved (big time) But do me a favor, OK? Call me in a few years... maybe five or ten and tell me how your kids are doing with all the enticing evil infuences in the real world that your children deem as harmless and cute because their Mom was unable(or unwilling) to understand the power of darkness. Halloween is a reason to celebrate? NO thanks! I'll be celebrating the birthday of a Saviour who came to earth as a baby to save the human race... Oh, but I forgot... babies aren't celebrated anymore are they? Too controversial. Only witches an demons. What a shame!

    1. Okay, as a sole parent Dad, who's x wife, the mother of my youngest two children was a self proclaimed satanist, I can give you some good news and hopefully allay your fears. Satan has 'no' power over children of true believers in the power of Christ. My x was a clinical psychologist who believed she was sent by Satan to destroy families. Until I won my case (by divine intervention) my six and seven year old children lived with her and were forced to watch movies such as "Exorcist", "Omen" "The Devil's Advocate" and numerous rape, zombie and drug movies. They went to Halloween parties and were dressed up in all sorts of ungodly costumes. They even attended rituals and seances. I taught the children on weekends with me that Satan was NOT to be feared as he was defeated 2,000 years ago by our Lord Jesus Christ, and his power only existed through his followers and the fear of believers. (too many Christians live in fear and hide in the fort) I gave them little bottles of oil and told them when they were afraid to dab a little drop on their head - it represented the blood of Christ. I don't encourage my children to go round trick a treating, but I also don't give Satan a reputation he does not deserve - the more we fear the more we focus and the more he has power. Where there is faith there is no need to fear. He will protect our children in any situation. Years later my children don't even remember what happened because the blood of Jesus washed away all memories. Don't live in fear or teach your children fear - just prepare your children. It's almost impossible to watch 24 hours a day, have faith Jesus does watch 24 hours a day.

    2. Tony, thanks for writing! Your story is crazy (I know, I've been reading it every day!) ... and to know your kids are doing fine is such a great relief. God can do anything!

  2. I think my kids will be fine in 10 years, but thanks for writing. You seem to take life VERY seriously. I'm sorry you didn't like my article but it was a little tongue-in-cheek. Maybe you'll enjoy my next one! Have a great day :-)

  3. Kerrie- that lady is nuts! You took it so well.

  4. Melynda, then there was the person who wrote me directly. An atheist who didn't like the SAME article b/c I made a joke about how my kids probably wouldn't grow up to be atheists b/c they were ghosts for Halloween! Can't please 'em all!

  5. Okay, well I grew up a DEVOUT christian. I went to 3 services a week, bible study once a week, and saturday night for other studies. We had no TV in our home, never listened to secular music. You know what we did do? We dressed up for halloween, nothing scary, and had fun going door to door. Now I'm a grown mom of 6 kids. Still Christian, following my parents example. I turned out pretty darn awesome and my sister and her husband are missionaries. She dressed up for Halloween too. So yeah, I think Kerrie's kids are gonna turn out great too.

  6. Oh my gosh, this comment thread is too funny! My sister in law is a nun, (yes, an honest to goodness nun) and guess what the Daughters of St. Paul say? Celebrating Halloween makes a mockery of the devil, turning him and his minions into children's play things. So it's GOOD for Christian families to have fun with it! And since when has scary stuff been anti-Jesus? Like He never went through anything scary? Yeah.... ;)

  7. You know, I can't help but wonder if she regrets listing her phone number in the comments. LOL Kerrie, as always, you are awesome. I'm atheist and I love Halloween AND Christmas. And get this, I'm the one who usually hosts Easter Dinner! People need to lighten up and love each other. It's the Christian thing to do right? Love thy neighbor as they say.
    Keep up the awesomeness, lady!

  8. You have some really good ideas in this article "Who Is Kerrie McLoughlin? ". I am glad I read this. I agree with much of what you state in this article. Your information is thought-provoking, interesting and well-written. Thank you.

  9. I stumbled across your blog while researching Fiverr and wondered why I was suddenly reading about Halloween and Satanists? LOL! Love the site though and it's got my wheels turning.

  10. Few universities have a better reputation worldwide than Oxford. It is England’s oldest and bright youngsters aspire to either taking their undergraduate degrees there or to do post graduate study having graduated from elsewhere. | | | | | | | | | |
