Lexie Lane is the creator of voiceBoks.com, , co-owner of The Social Media Panel, LLC., and co-author of the upcoming book, The Blogger’s Survival Guide Tips and Tricks for Parent Bloggers Wordsmiths and Enthusiasts. She began her education in computer science in 1997, but after many changes that took place in her life, she decided to “run with the crowd” and join the real estate/mortgage industry. 10 years later, Lexie Lane began exercising some of the skills learned through her Business Management degree and become an entrepreneur herself. In 2007, she co-founded REO Property Preservation Specialists, LLC and then sold her shares 2 years later to concentrate on what she was most passionate about – the virtual marketplace. Lexie Lane’s close-knit online community, known as The Voice of Parenthood, has become a haven for many beginner bloggers. Bloggers worldwide are increasing in numbers and among them, a community of parents who wish to contribute a little more to their household by the possibility of earning an income through their blogs. The daily challenges and trials that many bloggers have are some motivational factors that go behind Lexie’s continued efforts to create a blog friendly environment. Known to the blogging world as Lexie Lane, Karlyn Bishop started her blogging career just as many mompreneurs did, at the comfort of her home. With a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management and a background in Secondary Markets, Bishop found her life’s passion in life early – online marketing. Self-taught, she learned the ropes by helping guide a community of bloggers through a close-knit parenthood community she calls voiceBoks. voiceBoks is an informational site for all things parenthood. That’s right, it is a site packed full of information for and by parents. Founded by Lexie Lane, voiceBoks started out as a close-knit community of parent bloggers. Becky McNeer joined the team in late 2013 to merge their skills in social media and blogging. They wrote The Blogger’s Survival Guide in March with the voiceBoks community in mind. Bloggers deserve to be heard and learn the best skills to get them to the top. voiceBoks provides a place for parents to connect and be discovered. At voiceBoks, each topic is categorized to help parents find the information they are most interested in, the fastest way possible. We would love to hear what you know. So if you are a parent, please feel free to share and contribute as much as possible!
