Want to know how to blog?  I’ve been blogging for a yonks age (what is that, exactly?!)  I’ve learned some easy and some not-so-easy *face palm* things along the way.  If I had a third leg, I’d kick myself with it…from all the mistakes I’ve made.  Want to jump to the front of the line and skip the mistakes?  Gotcha covered.

I’m sharing how to grow your email list (my subscriber list grew by 700% when I used this)… and ps. Your email subscriber list is theeeeeee most important part of your blog. <— I screamed that.  I was able to go from 1-2 subscribers a day, to 200 a day with a total of 27,000 email subscribers to date.  Wow! If I can do this, so can you!  You can read more about it here.

You’ll also see what equipment I use, how I edit photos (the freaking EASY WAY!!) because. hello. easy.  Note to self: I also sip wine while editing….wine has antioxidants and I like to fight cancer sometimes 🙂

Learn creative ways to SIMPLY do things.  Simple is where it’s at.  Less is the new more.  Any nobody got time for wasting time.  I’m sharing how to creatively photo edit with easy to use apps. I also use Picmonkey (it’s free!) and yet I upgrade to the paid royale version.  It’s super inexpensive and it opens up a bonk ton of editing options.

Creative Market is another great one for so many awesome features like logos, fonts, blog themes and hand drawn graphic elements.  Most things are FREE *back flip* annnnnd, Creative Market has free weekly downloads and 95% off bundles.  Oh so good!!  I love it all! I get lost looking at fonts for hours on end.  It’s like font-crack. I’m a font-a-holic. Here you go…


One of my fave font, logo, graphics sites is @CreativeMarket ! They have so many free goods too!!           I love @picmonkey for their free editing and it's so so so easy to use!!!!           



We have been renting our treehouse, cabin and airstream for a couple of years now.  It’s been so awesome meeting really cool people.  PS. People who rent treehouses seem to be very cool peeps, and fast friends. That’s the good news. The bad news is that my hubby is quite sick.   We decided to only take a waitlist for treehouse/cabin guests and to just concentrate accepting bookings for a couple of weddings/events for the summer.  You can read more about that here.  Big love…
