Blog and Social Media Partners Wanted

Links to this post
Pinterest has been a very positive social media experience for me.  I have almost 160K followers at this time.  I find that sometimes life just has to get in the way of blogging and social media adventures. I would love to grow my blog, and Pinterest without having to clock a lot of internet hours.  I think it should be that way for others as well. I have hundreds of bloggers contact me daily asking to be added to my Pinterest boards. I think it would be a great idea to partner with some of those bloggers.  If we turned our blogs and social media into one big community, it ma be a huge benefit for us all.  One does not make an empire, many do.  So, would you like to join my empire?  I would like to create a hub page that advertises all those who would like to partner with me. I would like those who join my "empire" to network all of our Pinterest accounts together in some way or another.  I am working on the details for all of that now.  I want to open those to certain bloggers who will fit into categories that together makes a big "one stop shop" for anyone looking for anything on any subjects related to home, family, kids, education for kids, homeschool, autism, aspergers, sensory, childrens health, OT, PT, SLP, and basically everything I cover in my Pinterest boards.  Email me to discuss

Really long blog break, sorry

I have had this blog for many years now, part of me wants to give up on it and part of me wants to keep it going.  I have recently had a lot of life changes. I also have dealt with some health issues. I have had a lot keeping me too busy to blog.  I am really behind on product reviews. I feel really bad about that. I have over 2000 Pinterest board add requests, I have no idea how to catch up, or where to start.  I had hoped that by now this blog would make me money, even a few dollars per month.  I have made no money off of this blog.  I have received many wonderful products for review, but never monetary compensation.   I didn't want to fill my blog with annoying advertisements, pop-ups, etc.  I hate going to a blog and being bombarded with obnoxious pop ups, cheese advertisements, and soul-less posts that are done for monetary compensation.  I know a lot of bloggers who jumped on that bandwagon years ago, they make a crap ton of money from their paid posts, I had no interest in turning my blog into a big pile of meaningless paid posts. I am at the point in my life where I need to make supplemental income in order to keep things going.  We don't live an extravagant lifestyle or anything.  So I am talking, bill paying, not shopping for swanky clothes, jewelry, and make-up.  I am trying to be able to keep homeschooling, if I have to go get a job...  I won't be able to homeschool any longer.  I really need to keep homeschooling my twins, they both have too many issues to make it in a public school.  To name a few, One is abnormally small for his age.  They are 9, but one looks like he is 5 or 6 by his height.  He also has major learning issues and adhd.  They were 32 week preemies. He was the smaller of the 2 weighing in at 3 lbs 7 oz, and with two low grade brain bleeds that have definitely caused learning and memory issues.  This poor kid would forget names of colors, letters, letter sounds, numbers, etc. up until recently and he still forgets stuff sometimes.  The other twin has aspergers, sensory issues, major social anxiety, OCD, germaphobe, he is basically like Sheldon from the big bang theory.  I normally do not make posts like this on my blog.  I just really wanted to leave a little bit of an explanation for my very long blog break.
I have had some very stressful and some very wonderful life changes.  I am still adjusting to them in many ways. I am not sure I am ready to share any of that yet though.  I am working on getting back to blogging, and catch up on reviews.  I have a ton of curriculum reviews to finish and get on here.
