Sponsor Spotlight- The Work At Home Wife

 

I am so excited to tell you all about the next sponsor of mine. She has an E-book that is called “The How To Make Money Blogging Guide”.  I am still working through the book but let me tell you that it is a great book thus far and  I am so excited to work with it more and turn my blogs into money makers.  I have bought several different E-books on this subject and this is by far the easiest one I have found to follow.  She breaks everything down to manageable steps so you don’t feel overwhelmed by any of the steps.

This E-book was written by Angie Nelson.  She started her business in 2007.  After she started that she got many emails asking her if she was hiring or not.  She then realized  that she should start a blog and share her tips with people.  She started her blog on WordPress.com and then moved to her own site.  After she experiement with her blog she decided to start other blogs and see if they all work the same way.  She soon realized that they don’t work the same way.  She realized that every blogs works differently and you have to get to know what your readers want to see.

Once I work through the book fully I will write another post on all that I learned from this book.  I hope that you all will click on the button at the top of this post and pick up a copy of her E-book.  I am sure everyone can make money on their blogs if you follow her steps and find out what works for you and your readers!

Thank you Angie for letting me review this book!!!  I am so excited to get through it all and find out what will work for my blogs and readers!

Can’t Argue With Stupid!

I am going to start by saying that this post turned into arant about things that I haven’t written about before.  Now I am sure there will be people who don’tknow the whole situation and will judge me because of what I am going to type.  Just let me tell you that what you are aboutto read is mild compared to what he done to me in the course of our marriageand he is reading this then oh well!!! This is my blog if you don’t like it don’t read it!!
So a few weeks ago my husband sent me a message and asked mehow I was doing because he hadn’t heard from me in months.  I told him to just leave me alone because Iwasn’t happy with him at all.  He thenproceeds to ask why I was mad at him.  Itold him because of the credit card.  Forthose that don’t know the story of the credit card here it is.  While we were married and getting along wegot a credit card for my husband to use instead of taking out cash advancesbecause the credit card had a lower interest rate.  After we split up this last time I finallygot them to turn off the card after the total was to almost $11,000.  So then we are left to pay off that amountbut he couldn’t charge anymore on the card. We needless to say he pays on it from time to time and up until recentlyI have refused to pay on it because I am not the one who ran it up.  Not to mention I have so many doctor billsbecause he took me off of his insurance and didn’t tell me but that is a wholedifferent post.  
Anyway back to the credit card.  I have been getting calls from the creditcard company because he doesn’t pay it like he should.  I have gotten tired of my grandparentsbitching about the credit card company calling all the time so I set uppayments for the next year to shut them up for a year.  After the year is done I will figure out howI am going to pay for the rest of it.   After I tell him I mad about the credit cardthis is the message he sends me “I paid the credit card in October! “  I just sat there with a dumb look on my facebecause of what he said.  I didn’trespond then and I still haven’t responded to him.  Does he really think that you only have topay bills once a year?????  I finallycame to the realization that I can’t argue with someone who is that dumbbecause it is a total waste of my time!
So that is the story of the dumbest thing I have ever hear!

Sponsor Spotlight-Stress Case

Stress Case
I am so excited to tell you all about Casey from Stress Case.   First let me tell you that I love her design!  It is super cute and something that I may do on my blog one day.  Anyway while I was on her blog and reading different post of hers I saw that she does a series called What I Wore Wednesday.  She posts pictures of what she wears and then tells where she bought the things at.  I have always wanted to try a post like that but lets just say the clothes I wear aren’t anything to be showing off.  I loved all of her outfits that she has posted on her blog!

Another post  she reflected back 6 months when she got married!  I loved looking at all of her pictures from her wedding day.  I never thought to do that kind of thing when my husband and I were on speaking terms but that is different post all together.  I had to smile when she talked about  going to the bar after the reception was over.  I so should have do that.  It would have been a blast!  I can’t get over how pretty she is and how happy she looked!

After I read her post about cake pops from Starbucks I was glad that I can’t eat gluten or I would have had to go and get some!  Here is the picture she had on her blog about them:

I have never had these but they look and sound amazing!!!!!!  I once again have to thank god that I can’t eat gluten because I would eat way to many of them if I could eat them.  Just looking at the picture is making me hungry.

The funnest post I read of hers has to be “The One Where a Piggyback Ride Goes Terribly Wrong”.  Of all her posts this has to be my favorite. I am not going to give it away so you are going to have to go over to her blog and read the post!

All in all Casey is a great writer.  It was so easy to get into her writing and understand what she is saying.  I could read her blog all day long.  She puts so many details into her post that you can follow the story.  It is almost like you are there with her.  Like when she talked about the cake pops.  It really made me want to jump into my car and go and get one because the way she described them she made me want to go and get some!!!!  Go over to her blog and follow her also let her know that I sent you!

Crazy. . .

What a week I have had. It has been crazy and I have hardly had the time to breathe let alone post to my blog even though I have so much to update about. As you can see I never got Freaky Friday Follow up this week either. It will be up next Friday just ran out of time this week to get it all set up. Anyway, My grandpa’s brother died on Sunday night and that has left most of my family depressed. My grandpa also lost his oldest sister just over a month ago. It has been a rough month to say the least. To top off my crazy week I have also started talking to the birth father of my daughters as well. I have always wondered what could have been with him and I but I wasn’t in a place to talk to him again. My daughter turned 6 in July and it has taken me six years to get to a place where I was no longer mad about going through it all alone. It is crazy how things have changed over the years. I am also amazed that it took 6 years for me to realize that how it happened was the best way for it to happen.

I started this post  last week and I am just now getting around to finishing it. All I can say work is crazy right now and so is home life.  As far as talking to my daughters father again I am not sure what will become of that.  I am a firm believe that people are in your past for a reason but I truly wonder what would have been if things had been different.  I hate the not knowing.  I do wonder what can happen but at the same time I am scared to find out.  It doesn’t help matters that he is on the other side of the country either. 

Okay I give up this post  will just have to be ended here because I don’t have the time to finish it!  I hope everyone is having a good week and be on look out for my new design site and some great giveaways coming when I launch the site!  Also I have a great post about my idiot husband to write up as well.

Smiles For Sunday

 If you yelled for 8 years, 7 months and 6 days you would have produced enough sound energy to heat one cup of coffee.

The male praying mantis cannot copulate while its head is attached to its body. The female initiates sex by ripping the male’s head off.
