Growing Your Blog While Managing Your Home Review & Giveaway

Growing Your Blog Review

I started this blog years ago, when the bloggy world was just a little community of people who had a few things in common. There was no following anyone on Pinterest, or making graphics for every post on Picmonkey. As the internet gained speed, and blogging became commonplace, I’ve had to take a crash course to keep up with all the changes.

A blog can be a blessing for a family or it can become a curse. It is very easy to pour hours into writing, editing, creating, and promoting. Balancing blog and home is a challenge. Jacinda from Growing Home has launched an ebook this week that will help create a plan and save you from wasting time hunting for the info you need to kickstart your blog.Her blog has grown ten times in size and now generates a five figure income annually.

Growing Your Blog While Managing Your Home offers a wealth of information to help you set priorities and manage your time. The ebook is divided into four parts:

Part 1: Creating a Vision and Maintaining a Schedule starts with questioning whether blogging is right for you. It will help you set priorities and manage your time online and in the home.

Part 2: Content and Design covers a long list of tips for creating a quality site that is going to draw and keep a reader’s attention.

Part 3: Growth and Monetization  walks you through ways to grow your numbers and monetize your blog.

Part 4: Logistics and Legalities dives into the not-so-fun part of blogging, like dealing with ugly comments or people who steal your content. This is my favorite section because Jacinda reminds us that we are to react softly because the name of Christ is at stake. Such a powerful and important reminder!

You can see the entire Table of Contents HERE.

31 Days to Clean

I’ve read rave reviews the past few weeks about the new eBook                 31 Days to Clean: Having a Martha House the Mary Way.

Every day has two challenges:

  • The Mary Challenge -Something you do that encourages/engages your heart
  • The Martha Challenge – Specific cleaning tasks

There are tons of resources out there that tell you how to tackle your house, but this one also deals with the heart issues involved.

I discovered that, starting May 1st, there is going to be a 31-Day Homemaker’s Challenge using this book.

There is a Kindle version that can also be read on Kindle PC, which is super handy for highlighting and taking notes without having to print.

The eBook is ONLY $4.99, but if you share through your blog or Twitter before midnight tonight (EST) you can get a free copy!

wfmw – cozy home scents

This week’s WFMW has an Entertaining theme.

I love to create a cozy atmosphere in my home, especially when people come over. A burning candle is part of our everyday life.

There are lots of inexpensive ways to add a lovely scent to your home:

~ Keep a pot of simmering spices on the stove

~ Wash all of your linens in this fabric softener & they will smell like warm vanilla sugar

~ Toss pinecones, orange peels or cinnamon sticks into the fire

~ Sprinkle peppermint oil or vanilla on cottonballs and hide them around the house.

~ Tuck a perfume strip from a magazine into a drawer or cabinet

~ Sprinkle some cinnamon inside your vacuum cleaner bag

~ Toss a fabric softener sheet into the bottom of your trashcan after you empty it

~ Make your own Febreze with 2 cups warm water, 1 T baking soda and 2-3 T fabric softener – test a small spot first before using

~ Add a couple of drops of essential oil to a box of baking soda to make your own carpet deodorizer

~ Fill a basket with scented pinecones - I fill a planter on our porch to greet guests with a cinnamon-y welcome

What do you do to make your home cozy?
