#BloggersTalkingAbout Loving Yourself

  When you think about loving yourself, what comes to mind? For me, that always meant accepting myself and having confidence in my abilities and decisions. But in the process of writing this blog post, I’ve questioned if that what it really means. Loving Yourself I was lucky to be raised by a mother who instilled an almost un-shakeable sense of self confidence in me. Looking back she did that by making me feel that my opinions and thoughts were valid and important, which in turn made me trust and accept myself. If someone were to ask me if I love myself, I would answer yes and because I love to help people, I would probably offer some advice on how they could love themselves […] Continue reading »

Twitter Hashtags For Giveaways

Hosting a giveaway on your blog can be an effective & fun way to increase your traffic & social numbers. I organize and co-host many giveaways throughout the year and Twitter is one of the best social sites for getting the work out. People that like entering contests and giveaways, track these hashtags so make sure they see your giveaway! Use different combinations of these Twitter hashtags for giveaways every time you tweet about your giveaway. Tweet at different times to reach more people. I also try to include a hashtag that is currently trending for some extra traction. Look for ones that have days of the week in them, like #GoodSaturday or #SundayMorning. Save this to Pinterest – Continue reading »

How To Create A Gift Guide For Your Blog

Narrow it down because if it’s overly general it may get lost in a sea of other gift guides. Seasonal Family Fun is for families with children but instead of creating a guide with gifts […] Continue reading »

Day Trip To St. Augustine, Florida

Since moving to Florida in 2002, we’ve enjoyed exploring the sunshine state. One of the spots we wanted to visit was St. Augustine so last week my husband & I planned a day trip there. Did you know St. Augustine was founded in 1565 and is the oldest established city in the US? St. Augustine became part of the USA in 1819 and became the capital of the Florida Territory until 1824. This historic city serves as the headquarters for the Florida National Guard. We started the day early since we had a two hour ride ahead of us. It was a beautiful morning with hardly any traffic along State Road 20. When we got to St. Augustine we decided to start with lunch and […] Continue reading »
