I’m a mother of two boys, ages three and five! I’ve blogged for about a year and a half now and one MAJOR issue is finding time to learn about blogging while trying to maintain posting once a week – my posting schedule. This is a HUGE time suck when you first begin, but once you get the hang of it, you are ready to focus on your content and write, write, write!

The question is, how do mommy bloggers do it? Many of us have a hard time just getting ourselves out of bed in the morning! Yep, hit that snooze again today!

3 Spring Cleaning Tips That Will Make You Money

Spring Cleaning Tips to Earn Extra Money
Spring Cleaning Tips to Earn Extra Money

Is your house full of clutter? Could you use some spring cleaning tips but are also looking to make some extra money? Then this is the post for you!

Spring is a wonderful time to start purging all of your unwanted and unnecessary belongings! During winter we tend to hoard things and build up piles of unwanted “stuff!” I mean, what else is there to do in winter but shop online? No one wants to leave the house to go out on the snow-covered messes of slush we call roads here in Michigan.

Subsequently, there is NO motivation to clean because – SERIOUSLY – when we are done what will we do with all of this “stuff?”

Due to the weather, porch pick-up from Facebook groups is not an option because no one wants to truck through mounds of snow to pick up a toy. And dragging bags of clothing and trinkets to the goodwill seems like such a chore in the winter! You have to bundle up the kids with snow gear to do something you don’t necessarily want to do in the first place. So the “stuff” sits and accumulates all winter long.

In fact, after having several days of below-freezing weather here in Michigan, I don’t want to go outside to do anything let alone carry a bunch of bags to my car to drop off at an outside location.

Sorry for the rant, but thank the dear Lord spring is finally here and I can start my spring cleaning!

How to be a Better Blogger: My Journey

How to be a Better Blogger: My Personal Journey

I’ve blogged for around 15 months now and I am so happy to announce this is my 100th post! As a new blogger, this used to be a goal of mine.  In fact, I thought I needed 100 posts in my quest to be a better blogger and gave myself a timeline of one year to achieve this goal. Now I realize setting a number of posts for yourself isn’t helping anyone. Why? Well, quality content always wins over quantity. Yet, meeting the 100 mark on my blog feels like such an accomplishment and I am so happy to have you along for the ride!

Since it is the New Year, it is time to set some blogging goals. As I mentioned in my Goal Setting Post, one major aspect of goal setting is writing down what you want to achieve. Also, doing a checkup after a set time will help you adjust and revamp your goals as needed.

My blog had its first birthday on October 19, 2017, and that was my last blogging check-in. It is true, I learned a lot in my first year of blogging, but as an experienced blogger knows, I still have a long way to go. Blogging takes a lot of hard work but having a wealth of content on my site feels amazing!

Update: I made money from my blog! Learn what I did here in my July Blog Income Report – plus juicy pin tips and SEO tips!
