Weekly Updates

  • We are hosting our first real housewarming / Halloween party today.  Woot!!!  I’ll post some pics of the house and party next week hopefully!
  • My How I Make Money Blogging ebook has started selling way slower, but it did have a great run, lol!  :-)
  • As normal, sign up for my newsletter (in the right sidebar) —-> to be able to enter the separate giveaway that I host for subscribers only every month! Plus, I share things in the newsletter that I no longer share here (hint…what do you think happened to my monthly income reports)…

My Co-Owned Sites

This section used to be at the bottom of this weekly roundup because it feels weird to promote my own co-owned sites. BUT these posts are written by our absolutely fantastic staff writers – Libby Balke and Natalie Spring.

Check them out, they really have great writing styles and senses of humor. These are real people providing awesome posts for everyone to read! They truly make our sites amazing and I just need to say thank you!

Thank you!


Please let me know if you are running a giveaway so I can add you to the list each week! If you already emailed me and don’t see your giveaway, it isn’t on purpose. Please email me again as your first email must have died a horrid death in my inbox of all kinds of crap…
