Blogging Questions - Goals, Motivations, Etc

Hi ladies!I'm wondering - as a 'newbie' blogger, what's your approach?Do you set a blogging goal for yourself (weekly, etc) or do you blog as inspiration strikes?Do you set long term goals for your personal brand? Are you looking to increase traffic to your site? Build affiliate/sponsorship relationships with companies (i.e. make money blogging)?What drives you to blog? Is it social? Or is it to create and record memories for yourself?Thanks!See More

All The Details on Crafts....

I'm new to this forum but I thought I'd jump right in.When I think of crafts, I think primarily of decorative items and jewelry. I'm curious to know what types of crafts people here love doing the most.  Do you craft casually or as a source of income?  Do you craft with your kids?  Please share your favorite craft story (or blog post).  I'd love to hear about what others love!As for me, the vast majority of what I 'make' is created to fill a need in my home (usually organization related).…See More

The Anxiety Monster

Posted on March 22, 2016 at 9:20pm 0 Comments

Originally published at https://takethesechancesblog.wordpress.com







Tonight, my 8 year old had a full blown anxiety attack.
