2013 Blog Traffic Report

Because all the bloggers do it during this time of year…here is my 2013 Blog Traffic Report.

That Crazy Man I Love { on food and blogging }

Reason #100 – He gives me 100 reasons to love him…and now he’s blogging, too!

My Love/Hate Relationship with Blogging

Yesterday was a rough day. I got some news related to blogging that I didn’t want to hear/read. I cried. I don’t like to cry because it reminds me of my depression. Then, a friend told me to STFU and I laughed and realized I was being ridiculous. Sometimes I’m selfish and greedy and jealous […]

Personal Connections at Blogging Conferences

For an extreme introvert like me, making friends, putting myself “out there”, and being in large social event situations can be terrifying. However, sometimes those quiet wallflower moments can lead to the most perfect memories and the real personal connections that I cherish most. Disclosure: I don’t know if I need to disclose so I’ll just […]

My BlissDom Experience {part one}

BlissDom 2013 was my first blogging conference, my first experience with meeting people in person who I’ve talked to for over a year, my first experience with meeting brands and PR people in person, and my first time to be so completely overwhelmed about what to write and when to write it…but here goes!

  New Year's Resolutions don't work for me. I like to set goals for myself and see what I can accomplish. I am also somewhat of a dreamer and I tend to set lofty goals for myself. Who knows what I actually hope to achieve, but when I do something good, I am the best […]

2012 Blog Traffic Stats {because everyone else is doing it}

2012 Blog Traffic Report I must admit that this type of analyzing of my blog scares the crap out of me. Linking up and comparing myself to others, though, makes me want to crawl in the corner and cry. So, I'm jumping out there, listing this for all to see, linking up to others, and […]

This blog hobby that turned into a job, that turned into a way to make new friends

Once upon a time, I was living a leisurely life with my son and my husband and we were scraping by with our little incomes. We were constantly worried about money and food and most importantly, making our boy happy and healthy. I had an itch to do something different, but I didn't know what […]
