Hello! I hope you’re all having a great week and a great Friday! My week has been insanely busy. Between doing client work, some stuff for me, watching the baby, and running errands, I feel like I’ve been running around like crazy all week. (Or “running around like a crazed weasel,” as one of my favorite college professors used to say.) We have activities planned for the weekend, which should be fun as well. I’m really looking forward to it!
Blogger friends, before I get into my Friday Faves, I do want to make sure you know about this really great, FREE 5-day Shake Your Money Maker Challenge that Nicole Culver is putting on. (Full disclosure: I am a speaker and affiliate for her Blogger Summer Camp program, which you can get access to if you sign up for paid, lifetime access to the Shake Your Money Maker Challenge. More on that below.) If you’re looking for more ways to make money as a blogger, definitely sign up for the free challenge! You have nothing to lose and more money to gain!
Here’s what I’m loving this week:
Starting to feel better. My PPD (post-partum depression) was really bad for a few weeks. I felt really unmotivated and uncreative, which is a big issue when it’s literally your job to be creative. Even last weekend was really tough. Luckily, this week I finally felt the cloud start to lift, especially over the past few days. It’s nice to start to feel human again.
Blogger to Author is available for pre-order! My next book, Blogger to Author: Turn Your Content into a Book is now available for pre-order on Amazon! I’ve been working on this book for over a year now and I’m so happy it’s finally going to be published on June 27th. Right now, the Kindle version is 20% off during the pre-order period, so if you want to learn more about how easy it is to turn your blog posts or other content into a book, definitely get in on that deal!
Blogger Summer Camp. I’m really excited to be an expert speaker at Nicole Culver’s Blogger Summer Camp. In my interview, I go into detail about the steps bloggers should take to get started on their books. You can get access to Blogger Summer Camp here, as well as lifetime access to the Shake Your Money Maker challenge here (affiliate link).
My new hibiscus! I’ve become minorly obsessed with hibiscus over the years. (Exhibit A, Exhibit B, and Exhibit C.) Since this is our first summer in Oklahoma, I bought a pretty peach one, but then I found this beauty the weekend before last at a small local garden shop. It is absolutely spectacular and has had at least one bloom every day. I may go back and buy another one… (Yes, I have a problem.)
Honey-Roasted Pecans from NOW Foods. (Disclaimer: I received these for free as a #NOWWellness Ambassador.) These pecans are seriously delicious and seriously addictive. Plus, I love that they’re made with all-natural ingredients! I need to convince my local health food store to carry them so I can have a steady source.
This pretty sunset. We went on a family walk last Sunday evening on a local walking/running/biking path and really enjoyed it. We also got to enjoy this beautiful sunset as we were powering back through the final couple of miles to make it back to our car before dark. The sunrises and sunsets are so beautiful in Oklahoma!
I hope you have a great weekend!
