Kelly chose Paper Plate Pop Up Firecrackers from Crafty Journal. “What a great idea! Although we don’t celebrate 4 July here in Australia, this is such an easy craft for the little ones. I shared this with some American friends so they can make it with their kids. I plan on making a variation of this when we celebrate Australia Day next January.”

nophotos Kelly chose Why you won’t see photos of my baby on this blog from Velvet-Rose.Net. “Julie makes a really important point about the dangers of including clear images of their kids on their blog and social media. This is a timely reminder and not a topic I have seen covered very often. I am glad Julie has taken the time to highlight the potential dangers as it is oh so easy to think it won’t happen to me. “

10-Writing-Tips-to-Improve-Your-Blog

Heidi chose 10 Writing Tips to Improve Your Blog from Budget Girl. “Because I really do need help making sure that my writing makes sense some days.”

Natasha chose Why Commenting on Others’ Blogs is Awesome for Your Blog from our very own Tenns from Bliss & Faith. “I truly believe that commenting on others’ blogs are a great way to network and grow your blog. I haven’t had the opportunity to do so as much as before, but this is a reminder how important it is. Great post!”

Enough is Enough – On Making Change and Being True to You

I know I’ve talked about re-branding, changing the direction of my blog and having a whole new template, a couple times on my blog. I think I first brought it up about 3 months ago, in this post, On Starting a Business. However, here I sit with the same blog, across all areas. I’m not growing or changing, I’m just staying put. It’s a damn struggle, too!

On Being a Mommy Blogger

I love being a mom. It is the best job I’ve ever had, but I don’t have a passion for writing about it like I did when Emmett was first born. This is the reason that you’ve seen my post frequency getting less and less, I just don’t have the drive to write about it.
