How to Start a Blog, the “Building a Framework E-Book”

Hello All! Today I want to share with you an INCREDIBLE E-Book that I am currently reading in order to learn more about blogging, and how to start. I cannot say enough wonderful things about this E-Book as it teaches everything from starting the blog, social networking, monetizing, and so much more.

 

I am very new to this blogging world, and always looking for new books to read for the potential of learning information that I have not yet come across, so when I found Abby Lawson’s E-Book “Building a Framework“, I was highly intrigued. I was able to do the simple things like create the blog, find a theme, write content, etc…, but when it came to how I was to monetize my blog, get my blog out there to gain readers, etc… I was pretty clueless.  Along with all the information needed to start my blog, she also provides in her E-Book, websites of other bloggers, so I have found so awesome new blogs to read and follow!

My January Crochet Projects

My January crochet projects are currently under way, and I can’t wait to have them uploaded to my Etsy shop!  As I sold quite a few crochet washcloths in my Etsy shop and through friends in the last month (and maybe a few for myself), I felt it was time to replenish my inventory. These washcloths make wonderful gifts for anyone, and can be used for both the bathroom or kitchen.  So far, I have fourteen in an extremely wide variety of colors as you can see below, and as I continue to build my blog, these wonderful crochet washcloths may be part of a giveaway so stay tuned.  Which color is your favorite? I personally LOVE the Green/Blue sea mix on the left side of the picture, as well as the one above it.

Life As A Truck Drivers Wife

My life as a Truck drivers wife? I read an article somewhere last week that has kind of been weighing on my mind. If you don’t know me, you probably don’t realize that I’m a trucker’s wife, daughter, grand-daughter, niece, etc… I grew up in a family of many truck drivers. Heck, my ex-husband was a truck driver for a while too. In the article it discussed how a city/town wanted to build a truck stop for truck drivers, but the people of the city/town are fighting it because it will bring in “crime”. I don’t know about you, but my family members are NOT criminals.

Crochet Scarf Pattern Using Double Crochet

Here’s a great Crochet Scarf Pattern Using Double Crochet to start the day! I would like to point out that I only used 2 skeins of yarn to make this short scarf as it is for my 7 year old daughter, and doesn’t really need to be longer. If you wish for a longer scarf, I would use 3 skeins of a worsted weight yarn. I absolutely LOVE the color, and really wish I could remember the brand of yarn used.
