I cannot be the only one…who has logged into their blog on any random day only to be blindsided by a less-than-friendly comment left by a reader. After reading the aggressively negative comment I find myself going through a range of emotions: First, I feel defensive, thinking to myself, “What did I do or say that caused such animosity,” secondly, I feel defeated, “Maybe I shouldn’t write anymore,” and lastly, I remind myself, “What I write is not for everyone…and obviously this…Continue

I am so disappointed in myself!
I started a blog in 2008 and found wonderful guidance through Mom Bloggers Club along with fantastic connections that created a few friendships that I still have to this day. Recently MBC posted "Spruce Up Your Blog In 10 Easy Steps". Really good tips and resources. One I definitely needed, since my blog has been around for so long, was the BrokenLinkCheck.com. When this service was finished with my free scan I was shocked at how many links I had to…Continue

I started participating in #ASKAWAYFriday and I have enjoyed it. I love connecting with other bloggers and learning more about them. I wanted to participate in this blog hop because I don’t always share a ton of information about myself. I thought #ASKAWAYFriday was the perfect way for everyone to get to know me on a personal basis. For those who don’t know what #ASKAWAYFriday is, you exchange a set of 10 questions for another blogger to answer. Below are 10 questions that Beth asked me and…Continue

It has been two weeks since I participated in #ASKAWAYFriday because of the holidays. I love connecting with new bloggers and learning more about them.

So, today I've reached my 100th post on this blog. Not too bad for a hobby I only started in late July. Instead of my usual ramblings about the latest news parents could use, I thought I would take this opportunity (right before the new year) to check in:
Everybody ready? (This could be bumpy.)…Continue

I cannot be the only one...who has written, edited, spell checked, and re-read a blog post only to hover their mouse over the publish button, unable to click and commit to publishing the post. I have gone through this to-publish-or-not-to-publish song and dance with a particular post I wrote recently more…Continue

I met Jhanis for the first time earlier this week, I am new to AskAwayFriday and I was looking for someone to connect with. She happily agreed to be my partner.…Continue

I have been blogging since 2008 and yes, there have been periods of time when I think my words are pretty much spent. 'I've talked about this before' or 'No one's commenting so is anyone even reading my words?' or, a thought that happens more often than not, 'I re-e-e-ally want to write out this experience but if the people I'm writing about read this I would be mortified. I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings'. These thoughts, and some others, have held me in what I thought was a blog…Continue

Okay, so if you are friends with me on Facebook then you know that today I received a negative comment on Reddit.
This lead me to try to figure out how best to respond to negative comments. In this post, after I get my little vent out, I am going to let you know what I found in my research (really just talking to other bloggers and friends) and my own thoughts on the issue.…

Don’t you hate when you buy a WordPress theme and you can’t get it to look like the stupid demo? That’s the only reason why you bought the theme right? You were attracted to the theme demo and you pull the trigger to buy it and now you can’t even get it to work. I hate that! What I hate…Continue
