The NHS has been facing ever-increasing pressures in recent years, with slashed budgets, staff shortages and lack of resources taking its toll on the quality of care. One of the many ways we commonly see the impact of these pressures is in waiting times for GP…
The day you’ve dreamed of for years has finally arrived! Your little girl is all grown up and has chosen a partner to start her life with, and you are officially a MoB -- Mother of the Bride! While congratulatory remarks are appropriate at this juncture, so are a few…
This one is as simple as crowdfunding your honeymoon. It might sound strange at first, but do you really need another blender or set of dinner plates? Instead of having your guests purchase a bunch of things you’ll end up trying to return anyway, why not let them chip in for…

My girlfriend and I are both state employees and really having a hard time making ends meet. But one day I had a realization, I was dirt broke with a few bucks in the bank and yet I was as happy as could be. I had everything I really needed, my health, family, a roof over my head, friends, and I was not alone no matter what life threw my way. I then decided that I would just look for ways to make providing the "need" for my family the least as possible so I could enjoy what was really important.
What is your blogging philosophy?
I am very respectful of the fact that I am a newbie and in a position to learn from others. I respect the hard work other have put into their successful blogs. I'm a sponge willing and able to learn and have no intent of taking away from anyone's well deserved thunder. Blogging is a lot of fun but it is truly a labor intensive labor of love.
I have been blogging since...

Hi. Wow. I am in awe of you. I have a difficult time with my relationship with money and stuff, and I know that I could learn much from you. Excited to check out your blog. Please visit me as well... www.getrealmama.blogspot.com
Hi There from The Girlz Korner in upstate New York. My blog offers light, witty and rather entertaining articles on every topic imaginable from The Little Black Dress to Making Whoopie. So if you get a chance to kick back, if only for a brief moment ... come on over and see me some time.
Hi Marsha, So sorry for the delay, but some of my blogger club emails ended up in spam. I took them out! :-) Thanks for the feedback on Twitter.. It's good to have a respectable # of followers, but it's not worth any work there. I use plug-ins too. I've had problems with a couple. For example GD star would not let me add a title to the rating, so my users could get confused.. were they rating the baby product or my review of it, so I just deactivated it. It's good to have someone to talk to about these things! blogging can be lonely :-)
Hi Marsha! Yes, I've been using Wordpress plugins which are great. One of my favs is "Shockingly Simple Favicon". It doesn't help with SEO, but it puts your icon up on the browser tab so people can identify your page and easily get back to it. I'm pretty good at image editing, and I really need back links, so I'm thinking about a barter to create favicons for related sites in exchange for adding my link button to their website. Just pondering it :-) What do you think?
