It has been 3 months and 2 days since I started blogging! I must be truthful. I started blogging because I knew that women were making money doing it and I wanted to make money to be able to keep my son at the Christian school that he attends now. I don't know how I knew that women were making money blogging, because I had never wandered into the blogosphere before. And when I did, it was by mistake. But, the idea popped into my head one day (right after we decided that it would be financially irresponsible of us to try to keep him at the school). I did a little (very little) research, tried to come up with a name for myblog, started it and I've never looked back! There were times I wanted to quit, but I decided to do it for at least a year. I believe that's the time frame everyone always says for any kind of project. I still don't know that much about how to monetize my blog. But, I've made some wonderful friends and I'm actually having a great time coming up with posts (especially crafty things with my kids)! It really is like therapy a lot of times. And it is GREAT fun reading other people's blogs.
And, I just went over 400 followers yesterday!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you to all of you!!! You guys rock!!!
Here are a couple of (silly) things I've learned in my time blogging.
*If I ever name a blog again, the name will be shorter!!! Heartfelt Balance Handmade Life is an awful lot to type. Ditto on the email address.
*Stick DIY in the title or post somewhere and it will come up in search engines.
*The same goes for "happy spring quotes"
*I can not spend every day building my blog and still keep my house, my children and my husband happy. So, other than this, I'm taking today off!! I will miss hopping, but my laundry and some blog projects are calling!
