From time to time, I like to make blogging tutorials. I know that a LOT of the people who read my blog are bloggers as well, and I like to write posts that I KNOW they will find useful. This is one of those posts. Knowing this coding is essential to blogging. Whenever you put an image in your sidebar, whether it’s an ad or your own blog’s button, you use this code. If you look down at the right side of my blog, there are quite a few ads and buttons. They all use this coding. (Some are a little more intense than others, but...

I know you THINK this post is late, because it’s not even the first of the year anymore, but the truth is, January 17 was the blog’s ONE YEAR BIRTHDAY! Isn’t that exciting? It has been such an adventure to see it grow and to come up with fabulous content (and some not so fabulous content). I’ve loved getting to work with my awesome sister in law, Traci, and some amazing sponsors through out the past year. I thought it’d be fun to share my top five posts with you, as well as some stats from the past year.  The...

  Note: I’ve been told that Pinterest gets rid of your affiliate links. I’m not sure if that is true or not. Be sure to add a coupon code to the image you are uploading if you have it so that you will get credit for any sales that are a result of your pinterest pictures.  Pinterest can be an AWESOME way to get traffic to a website. Over 30% of my traffic comes from Pinterest. Everyone gets how to use pinterest, right? Pin a picture, it links back to the website it was pinned from. But what if you want it to link to...

One of my most popular posts ever was a post where I shared my favorite fonts. We’re talking pinned over 4000!!! times popular. I figured since that one was so popular, I would do another one, this time a Christmas edition.  All of these fonts are free and I found them all at dafont.com. It is such an awesome website and almost all of the fonts are free for personal use.    Christmas Trees Christmas Christmas Card Christmas Lights Christmas Snow Christmas Tree Christmas 3 PWChristmas Font Christmas Eve Frosty Holiday       Share Share...

I am so in love with dafont.com. There are so many awesome fonts to choose from. I have found a few that I use ALL. THE. TIME. These are not your typical fonts. They are extremely well designed and all the fonts I’m sharing with you today are actually by the same person. Her name is Kimberly Geswein. You can find her website here. I just wanted to show you some of her awesome fonts. They are all free for personal use (awesome!)      Skinny Love Only Hope Somebody That I Used To Know Sweet N Sassy Ways To Say Goodbye Strawberry...

Did you guys know that this blog is less than 7 months old? It’s hard to believe that in 7 months Traci and I have come this far. I recently signed up for a blogging course put on by Amy from One Artsy Mama. She’s designed a course with each week focusing on a different blogging topic. We started off with goals and now we’re half way through and reflecting on how far we’ve come so far. I have to say that the biggest thing I’ve been able to fix is my photography skills. I thought I was doing okay, but after...

One thing I realized quickly after I started blogging was that there are a lot of things that I don’t know. I started seeing other blogs that had social icons that seemed to be one picture, but with links to lots of  different places. At first, I thought they were just uploading lots of pictures and setting them next to each other, and I tried doing that,...

Blogging can be really time consuming. There are link parties to join, comments to write, emails to answer, reviews to write, posts that need written, surveys that need filled out, and many more things that can demand the time of a blogger. It can be addicting and completely time consuming if it gets out of hand. A lot of people want to make it big blogging, and a...

This is my 101th post! Woohoo! I figured a good post for my number 101 would be one to help other bloggers to make their blog a little bit better. I am pretty sure that doing this one simple thing has helped my blog more than any other one thing I could do. In life, you hear all the time the phrase “first impressions are everything”. When it comes blogging,...
