Come Shoot The Breeze With Me

Hello, bloggy people! I’ve got some interesting tidbits for you today. The weather here is beautiful so grab a seat on the porch and a lemonade and stay a while.

First up, the Ultimate Blog Party is coming to an end. They’ll be drawing prizes soon, so if you haven’t checked that out yet, you’ve still got a little time but not much! In case you missed it, yes I did have a big “reveal” this week, and I’m now signing my posts with my name – woohoo! I’m confusing people a little, but I’m sure y’all will get used to seeing it soon. Also, I’ve already introduced you to a few new people, but here’s a few more:

  • Cindy at Go Workout Mom has a neat little website chalk-full of information about exercising, ideas for exercising, you name it. I’m adding her to my Google Reader in hopes that she’ll inspire me to exercise more. Well, it’s worth a shot. She also has a giveaway on the list of prizes for the UBP.
  • Rebecca at Fun and Free Giveaways has crafted a pretty little site for -yup- GIVEAWAYS! I like giveaways. 🙂 ‘Nuff said.
  • Alyssa at Life From My Laptop visited my blog party this week and after visiting her blog, she looks like a very interesting person to get to know. We have several things in common, but also enough differences to keep things interesting. Check her out, I think you’d like to meet her, too.

My mom sent me a neat video this week, called “The Watchmaker.” I love the narrated poem, which tells a story for young children about creation and design by God. Additionally, their main website, Kids 4 Truth is full of more vidoes, devotions and information about missionaries and overall looks like a very neat website. I’m adding it Princess’ bookmark folder of approved websites.

I’ve been spending a lot of time working on my other blog this week and doing a lot of information gathering as well. Increasing readership has never been a main focus for this blog, though I do enjoy meeting new bloggy friends. In fact, I’ve always tried to avoid spending too much time on here. However, my intent with Imperishable Beauty is different so I’ve been reading up on tips for writing well, crafting a good website, building readership, etc. Check out these informative and easy-to-read articles if you, too, are considering setting up a business-related blog. (Most of them were found via Blogging Basics 101.)

Also, several of you have asked about my 12 Days of Easter. You can find my original post here. I’ve written further about this here. Also, my friend Katie has been writing about Easter all week.

That’s it for this week. God Bless!

Thank you for the mention. You’ll be surprised what energy you’ll have for your evening blogging adventures with a bit of exercise thrown in for the day. It was one of the immediate results I found from exercising a bit more. I can get more writing and interaction with other blogs beyond 9 or 10 PM when I used to crash, exhausted from the day.

Problogger is a great source of info. So is

Have a great weekend.

Well thanks for the link–I’m honored to have made the list, and I’d also highly recommend Erica’s 10 great posts on making money. She’s very helpful.

i would also recomment ProBlogger for great information! – this guy makes a true living from blogging alone (i’ve been following him for years now). He (and his guest authors) have excellent tips for blogging as a business (i have him on my IE RSS feed reader). I’ve been creating websites for 10 years now and although my focus has been half-hearted at best when it comes to promoting my things, I still make decent “gets some bills paid” money from my online endeavors (such as my CollieShop ( I’ve been utilizing google adsense since February of 2007 (started… Read more »

My cousin is making so much money with his blog that he has quit his day job to write full time. He’s bringing in about 50 grand a year from a blog he writes entitled Get Rich Slowly. I have just made my first hundred dollars with google ads. Its exciting!

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
