    Guest Bloggers Wanted

    I have been blogging for a little over a year now, and I really enjoy it.  I love sharing my favorite things and a look into my life with my readers.  I enjoy knowing that something I have posted is helpful to someone in some way. I also enjoy visiting and reading other blogs.  I find new recipe ideas, helpful tips and more.  I’m introduced to new bloggers and new writing styles.  Sometimes, I get busy and don’t get to visit other blogs as much as I’d like. For the months of April, May and June, I will be busy with an online employment project, and my regular math tutoring…

    Seek Assistance From the Monkey: PicMonkey

    When I first started blogging, I didn’t have the slightest idea about most of what it entailed.  I just knew that I wanted to share with others.  I soon learned the importance of blog design, blog post structure and quality and social media. Design was not, and is still really not my thing.  But I’ve been a little successful at it with the help of a monkey.  PicMonkey has been one of the best things that has happened to my blog.  It has allowed me to do minimal design without losing my mind.  I was able to create my blog header with PicMonkey.  That task too forever, but I was…

    What Is Love? Series—Your Ideas Requested

    What is love? A few months back, one of my Facebook friends asked what it feels like to be in love?  I thought it was a very interesting question.  And he received some interesting and heartfelt responses, even some from me.  It got me to wondering how people actually define love. I know that the Bible provides a very detailed description of love.  But I began to wonder if people’s definitions were similar, or on another spectrum.  So I am going to run a 45 day series starting January 1st, until Valentine’s Day.   I am asking for your definitions of love (see the link below).  I will feature some…

    One Year Blogiversary Giveaway

    I cannot believe it’s been a year already!!  I’ve been blogging for a year, but it seems like much longer.  I had no idea the experience it would be to start a blog.  The long nights writing blog posts, the learning curves, the design headaches and the social media frenzy were all worth the wonderful bloggers and readers that I have connected with.   I feel like a have a voice.  And people are actually listening!  I have enjoyed sharing my thoughts and my favorite things with my readers this year.  What I’m most proud of is that I’ve stayed true to myself.  I look forward to learning even more…

    Create Your Own Brand Watermark

    One of my many goals (see Essential Blogging) for my blog was to start watermarking my photos on the blog.  I admit it’s taken me a while to complete this because of pure laziness.  Sometimes, there’s just so many pictures.  But I  found a great tutorial and finally got it done. Ashley, of ABC’s of Life, prepared a tutorial that is very informative, and quite simple to follow.  So much so that I, with all my design deficiencies, completed following the instructions in only five minutes!!  Now, that is a huge accomplishment for me.   Ashley uses PicMonkey to create her watermark.  I didn’t do anything fancy with mine.  I used…

    Grab It Button

    I have been trying for months to complete design updates to my blog.  I finally got my header redesigned and my media kit finished as well.  One thing that I had been unsuccessful at creating was a grab it button. I had searched the Internet and found several tutorials.  I tried a few, but dealing with HTML code is not my thing.  So I decided to revisit a site that I had bookmarked months ago.  And there was an update to their tutorial.  On Code It Pretty, they had a link to The Grab Button Builder.  How happy was I to know that I could enter a little information and…
