Let's face it.
You probably will not become a millionaire by blogging.
But, it wouldn't be too bad to pay for a domain name by doing it.
Here are 5 things to keep in mind about advertising on your blog.
1. If your primary intent in blogging is to advertise and make money, don't do it.
Your primary intent for blogging should be to write. When bloggers get focused on the money aspect it is obvious to the readers. Nothing can cheapen your site more or… Continue

Well, here's where you (yes, YOU!) come in. All you have to do is a leave a comment on this post over at This Full House

Over the past 2-3 months my pants have slowly grown tighter. I step on the scale and I see my numbers go up. I am helpless when it comes to the holidays. It's the food. My god the delicious, wonderful, butter filled, sugar coated, fat saturated, food. I love it all. From the turkey on Thanksgiving to the shrimp on New Years Eve I am someone who always partakes in ALL of the holiday feasts. It's not only the food that gets me, it's also the drinks. I enjoy the dark stouts, egg nogs, and… Continue

I know we've all seen the "free" credit report advertisements. Usually you get it free for a month, and if you don't cancel, you find a charge of $14.95 on your credit card. I just came across this neat website that offers you a chance to see your credit score for free without even having to post a credit card or debit card! It's called Credit Karma.… Continue

How do I know I need to do this? Well, probably because I am usually the only one there pushing a cart through the mercilessly skinny aisles, filled with milk, trash bags and hemorrhoid cream, with two kids grabbing every other clothing item they see and throwing them on the floor. I get Jr. High School-worthy scowls and rolling eyes from teenagers every time, but, I don’t care...much. And truly, when I have the guts to venture in, I never find much.
Of course I am not interested in… Continue

I'm EXHAUSTED today. I really have to start going to bed earlier. I tell myself that all the time, but for some reason, it never happens. Normal bedtime for me during the week has been between 11:30 pm and midnight. That wouldn't be so bad if it wasn't for my alarm going off at 6 am the next morning.
I don't WAKE UP at 6 am, but that's when the alarm goes off. I'm one of those snooze button junkies.
If I have to shower I hit snooze once or twice, but if I don't have to… Continue

I have been wanting to get out of the house so I decided to slice my index finger open and let it bleed all over the kitchen towel, the sink, the knife...it took me a few seconds to get my first aid kid open.
Yup. I am a moron.
Despite firm pressure on gobs of gauze and holding my finger higher than my heart...it kept bleeding. At least I missed an artery. Snort.
I let 17yo rewrap finger....it kept bleeding through.
I looked over at spouse and said,… Continue

This afternoon after church, I found that most of us were sitting on our couch with our computers. As I looked over to Luke, who was also typing on his computer, I thought about how fast Christmas vacation went by for him but for me also. He desires to go back to school a few days early so that he can work at his job. Why? He may be asking a special girl for her hand in marriage and he would like to save for her engagement ring. Can you believe that this little boy who named himself "Pastor… Continue

You guessed it, it's beyond time to buy bras!!
There are a few things that I am known for, a really good lasagna, a cleft in my chin, mad dancing skillz, big Texas hair and bigger boobs! I once had a lesbian flick me on the boob and accuse me of having implants! Yeah right! If these were implants, I'd sue that surgeon and be blogging from my luxurious vacation home.
I finally decided to break down and go purchase new bras. You would think that buying brassieres would be a… Continue

No matter how much I tried, I have never quite fit into any group from elementary school to the present.
I was considered to be in middle level in high school(in the Midwest). You know, not a complete loser but not on student council either. I never wanted to be on student council. I did try out to be a cheerleader in junior high. This is pretty funny since I lack grace and coordination on land. I must have been overwhelmed with delusions of being popular in the 8th grade. LOL.

Yep, it's that time of year again. You know, after eating, not always the best food items, and drinking, not always the best stuff, it's time to repent for our intake sins.
We always start off in January in a retrospective mode. That is, we are 'actively' mapping out how we are going to change the things in our lives we feel need changing. Usually, that is our diet and finances.
So what goes wrong and makes us have to repeat this January tradition every… Continue

New mothers can get help from many websites that offer them baby stuff giveaways
for free and it can be nice to try out some new baby products and save some expenses on your baby's basic needs. As a new mother myself to little Noah, I found it very helpful when the baby was born and it saved me more than money, it saved me a lot of time to go check baby items that would fit me and my baby.
It is very important to be comfortable with your baby as… Continue

The day of our Lord and Savior's birth (or at least the day we CELEBRATE it) is upon us, and I am feeling more than a little bit Grinchy. This should be my best Christmas so far, because it is my precious baby's first one. I certainly started the season off in the Christmas spirit, even going so far as to finish my Christmas shopping early. But to be quite honest with you, the pressure of the holiday season is really getting to me. Why is there so much to DO? I feel the weight of the… Continue

Today was a day without a storm. Yes, no storms personally nor outside.
What type of personal memories do you have from Christmas Past?
Bulkie rolls, white fish, pickled herring, seeded rye babka, kielbasa... Do these foods seem unique to you? We are Polish and we can only find some of these items on Water Street in Worcester Massachusets.
In fact today, when my husband, four of my five children and myself walked into Widolff's Bakery (a bakery I have gone into since I was two or… Continue

So I don't really know if my first 'blog', was that exactly. I don't know if I am 'blogging' right! Unsure if there's a right or wrong way. If so then I may be doing it correctly. But you never know any more.
So Is It Blogging? This is the question, although not my only question, to myself and to anyone who is bored enough to read my lame excuse of a blog.
So can you blog correctly? Am I doing it right?
I guess since I'm not exactly sure what a blog in tells,… Continue

After waiting 3 weeks I emailed the dealer once again and this time I told him I want a refund. The watch hasn't shown up and there is still no tracking information so I am left to believe nothing has been shipped. He emails me back and says to please wait while he checks with the EMS shipping company again.
I think to myself, yeah whatever. He won't respond. I'll wait till the morning, then I'll file my paypal dispute as planned. I get up, check my email, and low and behold there is… Continue
