I’ve had a couple of great successes as far a my blog goes and I want to thank everyone for their support and loyalty. Without readers I wouldn’t be where I am right now.
At the New Year I had set some goals for myself and my blog. While a lot of those goals haven’t been accomplished for various reasons some of them have. Some of you may remember that I had planned to move my blog over to BlueHost. I had some BIG plans. (Great site and exceptional customer services!)

Then things kinda fell apart because when we went to transfer the site it didn’t go as planned. I was panicked for a bit as I thought for sure that we’d lost my whole blog but thankfully most of it was restored.
Then the next month I had gotten really sick and had to go to the hospital TWICE. Not fun! Then I’ve spent the past
few several months recovering and paying off those bills. Last month I finally finished getting them paid off… Yay! I also started getting back to blogging. I mean I’ve really been working hard at it trying to get back into the swing of things.
Last month I also stumbled across the Wealthy Affiliate program and did some of the FREE trainings that they offered and boy did I learn a lot. In fact I started putting the information to use right away.
Then a funny happened. I expected to see an increase in traffic on my blog and I did. (I had set a goal of having at least 20 views/day which was kind of pathetic since I had well over that this time last year but you’ve got to start somewhere, right?) I am happy to say that I far succeeded that goal and have set an even bigger goal for this month.
Along with the increased blog traffic I began to notice a dramatic increase in my Instagram followers. I had initially hoped to reach 1,500 followers by mid year but that didn’t happen, probably because of my lack of effort. This week we finally reached that goal and are steadily climbing as we speak.
To celebrate I have decided to host an Amazon Giveaway but I couldn’t decide on what to do. I debated on whether to go with back to school supplies or books/magazines as I know my kids love these:
Then being a busy Momma I know that there are a lot of other ideas I could come up with. I know I could really use this:
Decisions, decisions but sadly after spending over an hour talking with three different Amazon customer reps I was not able to set up a giveaway as I have previously done. (My account was hacked a few months ago and now they have suspended most of my privileges.)
No worries as I have decided to use Rafflecopter to host a giveaway of an Amazon.com eGift card in the amount of $25.00! Then the winner can choose whatever prize they like and I can get off the phone with customer service. Amazon is not affiliated with this giveaway.
Ok, now that we have the prize decided. What do you need to do? Simply click this link and follow the instructions. The link will take you to the Rafflecopter Giveaway Page. If you already follow my blog then please just leave your screen name and leave a comment for me on a recent post.
The instructions are pretty simple. You just need to come to my blog and click the ‘Follow’ button. (Located in the left column of the page.) After you have followed my blog I need you to leave a comment on this post letting me know you entered. Then enter your username/email into the box on the Rafflecopter form so I can verify.
I do encourage you to share this post with others but it is not a requirement to enter nor will it increase your chances of winning. The giveaway will start 8/2/2018 at 12:00 am and end on 8/10/2018 at 12:00 am. The complete rules are listed at the bottom of this post.
Again, Thank you all!
I plan to do some more giveaways as I reach some of the other goals I have set in place. In fact I will host another one when my blog reaches 1500 followers and/or my Pinterest page reaches 500 followers.
