Tell the Truth Thursday~Older People

Do you feel that advice from older people carries a special weight because of their greater experience?

I live on the wise advice of the older generations. I have lost all of my grandparents and still go back in my mind for the conversations we have had.

My mother in law passed away last June. My hubby was raised by his grandparents. His mom lived to be 90 years 11 months. She went to be with her Lord June 9, 2009. I loved sitting with her talking about her children, cooking, her sisters, the senior citizen center......yea sometimes she would tell stories more than once. That was fine....I would give anything for another day with her.

Her dad built 2 hutches for her when she was married. I prayed I would get them when she passed but alas I didn't. They were built with love for her and Petey.....but I have my memories and no one can take them from me.

My grammy's were awesome! My dad's mom was the cook. I do have some of her recipes but a lot of them she took with her. I so wish I would have paid more attention and been in the kitchen with her.

My mom's mom and I could sit down and talk about anything. I always told her I felt her more of a mom than mine. Now though I see my mom is like her. With losing my dad almost 4 years ago it changes a lot of things.

I will take what I learned from all them with me through life and teach my children those lessons.

How to Get Thousands of Links to Your Blog!

This strategy is not about buying links, trading links, or sitting at the computer all day on forums. This is a very cool strategy for getting backlinks to your blog – it is free and takes very little time. Remember, one of the criteria for getting to the top of Google search results is the number of sites linking to your website or blog. So the more sites you have linking to you, the better your chance of appearing on the first page of Google. And that is what we want so that we can get organic traffic.

Try this strategy. It has to do with commenting on other blogs that contain a WordPress widget called “Top Commentators.” Here are the steps:

1) Find a blog with the Top Commentators plug-in with thousands of posts (I have a few examples below).

2) Make 10 or so comments on that blog over a few days time.

3) Repeat the process daily adding new blogs to your list.

Some blogs with the Top Commentators plug-in that you can comment on:


I found this tip in the eBook Blogging to the Bank – a comprehensive 58 page eBook that explains how to monetize your blog the smart way. It has some really creative strategies for traffic building and monetizing your blog. Skip McGrath recommends this eBook on his blog and I have to agree, it is very good.

Keep your eye out for the Top Commentators plug-in as you make your way around the blogosphere, and add any that you know of in the comments section below.

The Holidays

My holidays aren't complete. Audrey hasn't come up for her "Christmas day" All her presents are under the tree and in the trunk of the car. :( I miss her

The kids have had a pretty good Christmas holiday. They got all they asked for even if it took a few days after. Those Zhu Zhu pets are still hard to find. But we did find 2 last night.

Could it be Santa?

I am updating and creating a few new blogs on photography, antiquing, making this one more for homesteading and creating a personal blog of my everyday quests. All of my blogs are listed under my profile photo.
