I am researching the whole “make a profit from your blog” concept and in my quest for information I read a book that suggested my grammar needed to be perfect. I do not agree with this and let me tell you why.
• I want people to follow my blog because of my fun personality and great information and a lot of that has to do with my slang and off the wall perspective and humor. None of which obey good grammar rules
• I spent 4 years of my life in college getting my bachelor’s degree and had to write using correct syntax, why would I torture myself for the rest of my life doing the same.
• I have two college graduate children and for the past 9 years I have been the editor and chief of every one of their papers, I’m tired.
My hope is that when you read my blog you can’t help but smile at least once.
First let me say I shop the grocery outlet like it is my religion. If you don’t have one in your town I’m sorry. This is my go to spot for all things nuts, cheese, and dried fruit. Not to mention they have a great organic section.
- Huge block of swiss tillamook cheese $4.99
- Dried cranberries .99
- Mixed nuts .99
- Dried fruit combo .99
The assembly line included my cute little ikea snack containers and in about 4 minutes I had a weeks worth done and ready for both my husband and myself. I also have enough cheese left for months and the nuts and dried fruit should get us thru the end of the month. I added some chopped apples to mine and it is fabulous and I am proud of my food hack
I went to my first novice gardner class last week and I am now super excited. I got this cute little planter for free from my friend Tamra and painted to match our fence.
