Missy is also the Co-Publisher of Revenews.com, Co-Founder ofitsaWAHMthing.com, Founder of AffiliateMarketersGiveBack.com and runs a number of her own niche affiliate websites.  Her most recent site launch is SpecialNeedsGifts.com, a site that teaches people how to buy skill building toys and gifts for children with special needs.  Half of the net proceeds are donated to the North Pocono Parents of Down Syndrome and Friends.

Here new book, “Make Money With Your WordPress Blog“, teaches bloggers how to take back the reigns of product placements on their blog and earn the money their work merits in the process, using affiliate marketing. She is a contributor and editor of the Internet Marketing from the Real Experts and is the author of  “It’s All About the Cookies“, which is a business book cleverly disguised as a cookbook.
